Saturday 17th October

Saturday was an OK day. Sue's sister Pat called in and they went out to lunch. Then we went to the garden centre to get some plants and some compost before getting some shopping done. The my friend Colin rang and we chatted for almost an hour. Before I knew it it was F1 qualifying and that overran by almost two hours. We then waited until Strictly Come Dancing had finished and then watched it from the start. It was about midnight and I should have gone to bed but no, I stayed up and watched a film. Hence this post at 4.15.

I've started writing lyrics to a tune I've been carrying around. Only one verse so far but I'm hopeful that it'll come together. I need to sit still to write. I'm a lazy songwriter in that I only write when I have something to say, but I'm not lazy once I do start writing. I work hard to make the lyrics scan and rhyme, with a regular and consistent metre. Call me old fashioned, but that's what I like, and I take pride in my craft. I don't know if my work is any good- that's for others to decide.

By the way, if you read this, please please please add your comment. Friends are telling me that they are reading my posts. Just say hello when you drop by.


  1. Hi Dave,
    Roy sent me your blog site and told me of your diagnosis.
    Nothing is too big nor is anything impossible for our God so with that assurance I have placed you on prayer chains throughout the UK, Canada and the USA.
    I plan to check in on a daily basis so we know how best to pray for you plus I will keep the prayer warriors informed so that you have ongoing, relevant prayer support -also for the rest of your family as they watch you going through chemo. (Clemos chemo eh).
    Our love and prayers are with you as you start this journey to restore your body to good health and strength. One thing I know for sure, Father will be with you every step of he way; every chemo you have He will be there with you; every concern you have He will share with you and every step you take towards being well He will have planned for you. You couldn't be in safer hands.
    God bless you Dave and thank you for the privilege of walking with you through this very personal and sensitive time.
    With love
    Lamentations 3: 21-26 which speaks to me of the fact that Todays needs do not rely on yesterdays mercies. Praise the Lord.

  2. Hi Gwen,
    It's good to hear from you.
    Don't forget-
    It's Clemo (as in clemmo)
    and chemo (as in cheemo)

    if you see what i mean......

  3. ;) yes Dave I see what you mean - was a play on letters rather than pronunciation.
    How are you.
    Love the song by the way.
