From the wonderful, wintery, wonderland of Birdwell! Yes, it's Jane Poppins enjoying the Yorkshire air.
I'm heading for morning coffee/tea in my new shed
We haven't quite got round to furnishing it yet, but so long as I get a desk and chair, I'll be happy. This picture was taken a couple of days ago when the shed was built by Garden Shed UK. Well done lads! You did good!

It's a few weeks since I last blogged, sorry about that, but I've had a few health problems. To cut a long story short, I am booked in to have my gall bladder removed this Saturday, in Barnsley Hospital. Of course I'm not overjoyed about having surgery, but I am so glad the doctors have found out what has been causing all my pain and sickness. I will be happy to get shut, and get on with my life. The results of my ultrasound scan said, "gall bladder packed with calculi," so, goodbye stones.
I certainly have things to look forward to, (apart from being able to function better), there is my lovely new shed to paint, inside and out, I want to create a peaceful writing space and artwork area, there is Valentino to practice, then there is the garden to sort out with David ready for our anniversary celebration in the summer. It will be our 50th Wedding Anniversary on August 3rd, so I think a bottle of bubbly is on the cards.
Meantime, I continue to write poetry in the hope that practice makes perfect. Talking of poetry, the Barnsley poet, Jethro, is compiling a CD of Barnsley Voices, and he paid me a visit to record on of my poems. (Watch this space). He's such a lovely guy, and energy to spare for the poetry scene. 
I'm going to miss my trip to Kent this month, but hey, it's cold outside. I'm optimistic about February, and of course the approaching spring.

So, keep warm, dear reader, and I'll talk to you on the other side of the anaesthetic.
Love and hugs,
Jane x
