Cold


 It hasn’t gotten much over freezing all day.
The neolithic burial mound on top of Gop Hill is dusted with snow and stands out in relief against the blue sky.
On and around it are the black spots that are the village children and their squeals of delight as they snowball and sledge can be heard down at the cottage, where I have lit the stove early.
Trendy Carol tottered past on the ice wearing a smart faux fur number
I dozed in the armchair after an icy walk.
But I didn’t dream of Mr Hemingway again,
Which was a shame .

  1. Thinking back to yesterday, the worst dandruff I ever saw was on Ted Hughes, shoulders - a veritable avalanche. Not a good look. But then, not a particularly pleasant person to meet either.

      I got married 2 years ago and it just seemed that there was no excitement in my sex life. My dysfunction to perform to the best of my abilities in bed made it harder for my wife and me to have a good time during sex. And i was having the feelings that she may decide to get a divorce one day. I knew something had to be done in order to improve my sex life and to save my marriage because my marriage was already falling apart, so when i was on my Facebook page i came across a story of how Dr Aziba helped him enlarged his penis to 8ins better.so i Immediately copied the Email address of the Dr and explained to him my problem, he gave me some simply instruction which i must follow and i did easily and my friends Today, i am the happiest man on Earth, All Thanks to Dr Aziba for saving my marriage and making me a real man today.

  2. It's lovely to hear children laughing...especially if you can then go in and sit by your woodburner. I have a sizeable brick built outbuilding, with double doors and a window; if I put a woodburner in there, but kept the doors and window open, would it count as 'outside'?

  3. I wish we had a local neolithic burial mound. Perhaps we do and don't know it.

    What ancient surroundings are in view of your home! Come to think of it, that's true everywhere, but not all very old cultures left the evidence of themselves as those that are apparent in the UK, Italy, Greece, and elsewhere.
    Enjoy the cozy cheer of your home sweet home.

    Hugs!

  12. A shame Mr. Hemingway didn't visit again. You'll just have to look at his photo and daydream. Stay warm and cosy in your lovely cottage and enjoy the rest from work. xx

    If you had repeated the dream it would no longer be special. On the other hand, if you had repeated the dream, you might start worrying instead! Hmnn....

  19. I'm sure our neolithic ancestors would be delighted that the local kids are having such fun on their burial mound.

  22. Your burial mound reminds me, I'm reading a terrific little book of essays by Welshman Byron Rogers, "An Audience with an Elephant", many with a Welsh flavour, which you may enjoy, if not already read.

  23. If I had a dream that Hemingway was creeping up on me in the dark, that would be a nightmare. Maybe it' living in the shadow of Gop Hill.

  24. I wonder if Neolithic children were allowed the same privilege? Somehow, I doubt it.

  25. Hemingway is a dream slut.

  26. Maybe you'll dream of kissing Doris Day, which will seem to you like kissing Ernest Hemingway... which in my book sounds a whole lot better.

  27. "gotten"? from a Welshman? Clearly your encounter with Mr Hemingway has influenced your words.
