Today Lynn gave us the nudge “Obsession“.

When I think of obsession, in regard to love or romance, I am drawn to the dark side, (but then again, I live quite a fair share of my life on the dark side, so no surprises there!)

I had fun with this edit though; I wanted to really capture and portray the compulsive, manic nature of obsession. In doing so, I might have stretched Lynn’s rules… sorry Lynn!




I had a second edit which I really like too; a softer version, but I hope it still has a slightly sinister feeling of a woman being watched and perhaps hunted…

(And yes… you can see where I bite my lip in the photo!)





Looking forward to our next nudge!

TMI Tuesday


This weeks TMI Tuesday!

1. April 1 is April Fool’s Day (All Fools Day), a Western tradition of pulling pranks and hoaxes.

– Did you play any April Fool’s jokes on someone?

This year? Nope.

– Were you the victim of an April’s Fool prank this year?

Again… nope!

– What is the best April Fool’s hoax you’ve ever pulled?

Epic! I had my colleagues convinced about a new work rule that our boss was putting in place to the point of them almost taking industrial action… I told them I was kidding before the boss showed up!

2. What is your favorite unusual or non-traditional holiday to observe?

I generally don’t buy in to what I think are randomly appointed holidays… I guess maybe I enjoy things like the OH’s birthday and our anniversaries of when we met and got hitched… I celebrate those and make a fuss on those days.

3. Do you observe any unique local or family tradition holidays? Briefly tell us about this holiday.

Well, being Irish, we have St. Patrick’s Day, which is mostly just an excuse to get hammered!

4. April is National Poetry Month. Share your favorite poem with TMI Tuesday or write a poem and share.

It is impossible for me to choose just one poem! That is like asking me to choose a favourite child… Sophie’s Choice!

How Do I Love Thee?

When You Are Old

Canal Bank Walk

And Still I Rise

Everything ever written by Wendy Cope

5. This month is also Stress Awareness Month. What stresses you on a daily basis?

So much! My dogs barking, not having enough time, rude people…

6. April is National Humor Month. Name 3 stand-up comics or comedic actors who make you laugh?

Tommy Tiernan

Louis CK

Victoria Wood

7. April 22 is National Jelly Bean Day in the United States, however, it can and should be celebrated all over the world. How will you celebrate Jelly Bean Day?

I don’t actually like Jelly Beans! Sorry…

Bonus: The flower for the month of April is the Daisy. How or what do you feel about daisies?

Love them! To me they are like a decoration for a lawn. I always ask the OH to mow around them and not disturb them in my back garden. I remember making daisy-chains as a child and wearing daisy-chain necklaces and bracelets.

Pretty little flowers!

Lines that speak to my soul…

I could look into your eyes until the sun comes up


Remember when I moved in you?

And the Holy Dove was moving too, and every breath we draw was hallelujah


The only heaven I’ll be sent to is when I’m alone with you


As you slide through the door with your morals on your sleeve,

I think it’s time for all those morals to leave


So I’ll take you to the beach and well walk along the sand

and I’ll make you a heart pendant with a pebble held in my hand,

and I’ll carve it like a necklace,

so the heart falls where your chest is,

and now a piece of me is a piece of the beach and it falls just where it needs to be,

and rests peacefully so you just need to breathe to feel my heart against yours now


If I lay here,

If i just lay here,

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?


Oh my baby, baby, I want you so it scares me to death

I can’t say any more than I love you

Anything else is a waste of breath


You want to know how to make me smile?

Take control, own me just for the night


We might make love

In some sacred place

Its not that we’re scared

It’s just that it’s delicate


I hurt myself today

To see if I still feel


Maybe I didn’t want to lose a lover and a friend

In one night

If that’s alright?


If the Heavens ever did speak

She’s the last true mouthpiece


The more you refuse to hear my voice

The louder I will sing


I could make you happy

Make your dreams come true

Nothing that I wouldn’t do

Go to the ends of the earth for you

To make you feel my love


I’m not going to get too sentimental like those other sticks of valentines

Coz I don’t know if you are loving, somebody I just know it isn’t me

Alison I know this world is killing you


 This final one is a poem not a song…

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
