Gwendolyn

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/podcasts/ Gwendolyn nearly killed daddy last night. I swear. Poor daddy. Mother is huffing around the place like an Antichrist. And ‘tisn’t Gwendolyn she’s mad at. It’s daddy. He’s out in the shed hiding and rubbing his bruises – not as much as a cup of tea in his hand. You can forget about any … Continue reading

Brigit and Bonanza

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/podcasts/ Brigit inflicted herself upon me in first year in a most memorable fashion. T’was during lunch and we must have only been secondary students for a couple of days. Actually I’m sure of it. I missed a day and a half the first week of school and it was because of her. “How’re Ya … Continue reading

A moment of kindness – daily prompt

Make that moment last a lifetime – treat others as you would like to be treated – with respect, dignity and compassion.

Tagline

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/podcasts/ My day begins in dazed confusion, punctuated by short bouts of chaotic organisation, interspersed with moments of calm. This is followed by fluctuating outbursts of creative activity, sustained by manic determination, culminating in a brief collapse that coincides with tea time. Following refreshment cycle is then repeated until exhaustion ensues. Effects are mitigated by … Continue reading

Prince Charming – a gombeen with a foot fetish

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/prince-charming-a-gombeen-with-a-foot-fetish/ There were fourteen steps on our stairs at home. Not nearly enough. Apart from that they were made of wood. Mother had them covered with lino, with little brass rails between each step to stop the lino from moving. We’d have to take it in turns sweeping them and polishing those feckin rails every … Continue reading

Part 3 – If you’re going to do a job, do it right – Cinderella

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/part-3-if-youre-going-to-do-a-job-do-it-right-cinderella/ That wasn’t the only concern I had about the bauld Cinderella and her shoe. There were others and I had to attend to them as well. Daddy always said, “If you’re going to do a job, do it right”. I took that on board at an early age and anyway, Cinderella was worthy of … Continue reading

Cinderella wasn’t dressed for mass – part 2 testing my theory

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/podcasts/ So I went home and tested my theory. A few factors had to be taken into consideration prior to analysis. First of all I didn’t possess a pair of glass slippers. I only had the leather ankle boots Mother bought us each and every September, to last the winter. Each and every September we … Continue reading

Joanie

https://widgetworld3.wordpress.com/odds-and-bobs/ An excerpt from Joanie .. c. EO’D JOANIE Lemon trees, now that’s another thing. Don’t they pee all over them down in Australia? The people that is, probably the dogs too. I got that straight from the horse’s mouth, from Joan Maher. My namesake, Joan. She always calls me Joanie and I call her … Continue reading

Cinderella wasn’t dressed for mass

I was particularly fond of ‘Sleeping Beauty’s’ man. God he was lovely, with his dark brown hair and his big broad shoulders. He had sense too, not like Cinderella’s. There was a lot wrong with him. Indeed there was a lot wrong with the whole story. Even as a child I thought it a bit … Continue reading
