I Made That Face

Hello again

Just wanted to share a little something I wrote on one of those Monday afternoons, when you have so much to do but your little one is fighting their sleep...

I have this little boy
who likes to fight his sleep
I have tried everything
even counting sheep

He twists and turns
he just wont give in
I tug my hair and realise
it really has gone thin

"Come and have some milk"
and I offer him my breast
His big toothy grin melts my heart
as he says "Mum you're the best"

I sit back and get comfy
as he cuddles up close
"Mummy's magic milk
go on son take your dose."

His eyes begin to close
as he struggles to stay awake
I look on with open eyes
another memory to take

He's had his fill
this I truly know
as his head tilts backwards
and then he lets me go

Eyes closed peacefully
breathing a steady pace
I fill with love and pride
and say "I'm glad I made that face."

Hope you liked it.

Until next time, take care

Tantalizing Tuesday - Romance in the Woods

It's Tantalizing Tuesday Time :-)

This weeks picture  of inspiration was taken from Pinterest.

So without further ado, here are my 200 words exactly:

Her heals clicked along the path but he could still hear his heart thumping. For a moment he worried she would be able to hear it. He squeezed her hand playfully as they walked, her head resting on his shoulder.

She looked up at him. Her dark eyes melting right to his soul.

“You ok?” She asked as her forehead furrowed.

He knew it was now or never. He hadn’t meant for this to happen. After all they were just having fun, nothing serious they had said to each other in the beginning.

“Kate,” he said as he brought their walk to a halt. “There’s something I need to talk to you about.”

He saw the change in her eyes and wanted to kick himself. Perhaps now wasn’t the right time he thought.

“What is it, George?”

Now he had no choice, he would have to come clean.

“kate, I uh er… I don’t quite know where to start.”

She just looked back at him with cold eyes and he knew it was all going horribly wrong.

“The thing is. Well these last eight weeks have been great. But I have fallen in love with you. Will you marry me?”

Until next time, take care.
