There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    Dear diary,

    Today was a day of miscommunication. We don't seem to know whether we are coming or going.

    Dear diary - it was lovely being taken to the library by my three year old granddaughter, whose face was a picture when she saw all the books! We spent an hour reading a few of them before deciding on four (even though she is allowed 24!!! ) then going for coffee (her first time!).

    Dear diary,
    I hope I will be brave and go in the cold weather to catch a bus a give back my delayed library loans to the library at last.

    @amatsu - I'm jealous, I was only ever allowed to take up to four books at a time from my local library.

    @Hevio - it was 18:50 or ten to seven! Meditate - you'd be amazed how time flies!

    @Lynne - Hmmmm I'm trying to work out which day of the week it is. I suppose it's Monday as there's more traffic out in the streets.

    @Elfish - Be brave!

    Dear diary - It's my turn to be brave and go out to find an ATM. It's too hot right now but when I pay for my room here, my purse will be a bit empty.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Ok, Mrianne, ten to seven. :D
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,081 mod
    It's now twenty three minutes past five, five twenty three or 17:23. But I'm not sure how many people would say seventeen twenty three.

    @Elfish - Do you have to pay a fine for late returns?

    Dear diary,

    I'm just getting ready for the last Beat the Monday Blues session of 2013. I'm actually feeling quite nostalgic.

    Dear diary
    I have just been to the last Beat the Monday Blues of 2013. I'm actually feeling quite nostalgic!

    @Lynne No, but if you are 2 weeks late or more you can't borrow anything for 2 weeks (or for as long as you've been late).

    Dear Diary,
    I went to find some real coffee. Ironically the only decent stuff in a packet was to be found in Coffee Day, the national coffee chain. Even though coffee is grown locally, the only kind I found in the shops was mixed with chicory and hopelessly overpriced.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Diary, I need go out to lunch but I am so lazy today, I wanted to eat meat but I think I will eat a salad only because I am lazy to ride to a bit far restaurant. God have mercy on my soul. :\">

    Dear Diary,

    Dog walk - tick
    Corrections - tick
    Paperwork - tick
    Housework - tick

    Time for pizza.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    That deserves a celebration @Lynne.

    Hi diary, I miss my brother.
    Right now when I was cooking the dinner I start singing a song that made me remember him, my heart sinks, I feel so much his abscence and I won't be able to see him until March or July, so I came here to forget him a little when I think about te words which I can put here. If English was more easy to me I think it would not do any effect, but I have to think to much to be able to chose these few words and it helped me a lot.
    Thank you one more time diary. :)
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Diary, my brother calls me this morning, it was nice. :)

    On the lunch time I went to the Triumph Motorcycle's store to bother a seller, he swer I will buy one, who knows in two years? :D

    And I need one more point to see if with 400 points I win a new star. :))
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Thank you diary, now I have four hundred points but nothing came with it. :P
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Some biker friends decided to have a churrasco at my home next Sunday. Even well they warned me. :)
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    Do you all know the meaning of churrasco?

    It is a Brazilian barbecue and they both don't are the same

    Dear diary,

    I created two badges today, to make up for not doing any last week. :)
  • amatsuscribbleramatsuscribbler Posts: 2,223 mod
    Dear diary - I'm having a day off today. Oh no I'm not! I'm working here! :P
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,585 mod
    Dear diary,

    I made a coffee without any coffee today. Imagine my face as I started pouring hot water.
  • HelvioHelvio Posts: 1,860 Inactive
    -Wife, go there to make a coffee.

    -But hubby, we don't have powder or sugar either.

    -So don't do it, will be too bad.
