First Halloween 

So I’m a bit late posting this as it’s almost 10pm. But today was the little monsters first so naturally I had her dressed up here are the results  Cutest little monster in the world. 

Trick or Treat 

Pumpkin lanterns and trick or treat, Small children wandering round the streets, Wearing costumes Cute and Scary, Running from parents trying to be wary, For kids in costumes are all that’s on the prowl, Ghosts and Goblins are out on the town, Trying to steal the innocent and take them away, The monsters lurk in…

Thinking By The Fire.

Its that time of the year, The time for remembering, The time for celebrating, The time to remember the love we once had, The time to remember the love that is still there, We were meant to be together, It’s truly what I believe, I knew this the day that we met, I should have…

Wish me luck. 

I have been unemployed since May, as anyone who has even glanced at my blog will know that I have been a stay at home dad since then. As much as I love the monster I need actually grown up people to talk to.  So tomorrow I have an interview which will hopefully lead to…

A little help please 

I have to write a short story for tomorrow night. No more than 1500 words for a competition I want to enter but I haven’t got a clue what to write. I’m looking for ideas can anyone give me some inspiration and I will attempt to get it written for tomorrow night.  Thank you in…

Sigh. Here we are again. 

Sunday night / Monday morning 1am It happened again I was sitting here quite happily watching random stuff on YouTube, replying to comments on here, emailing friends, chatting on discord. Then I decide to go to bed. The wife and the monster have been in bed and sleeping for a good few hours leaving me…

Freakishly Accurate Star Signs 

I was playing about on my phone just now and I hit on Tumblr. There is a page I follow from an author who does videos on YouTube with writting tips.  Anyway back to my point she had posted a thing about horoscopes so I was curious and went to look up mine.  Cancer ♋ …

Can’t they wait? It’s earlier every year. 

Today was a busy but normal, boring day. Got up this morning, played with the monster, she fell asleep, watched TV, monster woke up, fed her then we went shopping.  But not just any shopping. The most boring shopping of all.  Food shopping (DUHN DUN DUMB) So there goes this week’s money now I’m broke….

This behaviour is unacceptable. 

I tend to think that I am a fairly tolerant guy. Live and let live is a big belief of mine. Do what you want to as long as you aren’t hurting others. You want to believe in religion have at it. You’re gay good for you as long as you’re happy. As long as…

Blue Eyes in the Rain

As I hurried ‘round the bend Of the wooded trail near my home I came upon her standing there In the pouring down rain Her face turned up Toward the clouded grey sky I stepped back into the shadows My eyes could scarce look away as She stood there…

You think you scare me? 

 You think you’re tough? You think you’re hard? You’re not. You are just a pathetic little shit who needs to get a life. You think you scare me? You think you’re going to stop me? I don’t care how many of you there are or what you try to do to me I am not…

Where do we go from here?

I thought things were going well, We were getting along, I told you things not many know, I trusted you, giving you a peak behind the mask, A glimpse into the depths of my madness, You touched my soul. Then something happened, We stopped talking as much, You started to pull away, We drifted, Lost…
