Welcome to my Life ... a relatively ordinary life which includes a full-time job; looking after, spending time with and sometimes worrying about family; tending to the various "furries" that have a place in our home and our hearts; finding time for friends; finding time to write; finding time to perform my comic verse.... all those thousand-and-one-things that make up every day life and which, every day, provide the inspiration for and are the backbone to ever-growing collection of my comic verse that forms "A Life of Rhyme" (although this website contains only a small part of that collection).    I

"A Life of Rhyme" now has "company" in the form of The 2015 Collection which is a daily challenge I've set myself and which you can read more about below.

If you think that my verse might be able to help with fundraising for causes close to your heart - please do get in touch via the Contact Form.  I'm always happy to help if I can....

If you've headed this way to read moving works of high literary value, which will inspire, motivate and amaze you... then I'm really sorry but you need to leave now.

If, on the other hand, you're here because you want a little light relief in your doubtless busy day; if you want to raise a wry smile at ordinary things happening in an ordinary life which might, for a least a short time, make you realise that you're not alone in the teeth-grinding, hair-tearing, exasperating, infuriating and down-right unavoidable minor trials and tribulations that find their way into each and every day... then stick around.   

I can't guarantee that every rhyme will have you laughing uncontrollably...
I can't promise a side-splitting interlude......but I can promise that each one of these verses have been created as a direct consequence of something that has happened to me, or my nearest and dearest which, at the time, seems like a calamity but which, with the benefit of hindsight, is nothing more than a "blip" on the screen of life.... something sent to try us, test us, trip us and thwart us but never defeat us.


I'm also undertaking a new challenge.   It is my intention to write a brand-new, hot-off-the-press poem every day for the whole of 2015.  It's called The 2015 Collection and has its own Facebook page which you can find at: 

https://www.facebook.com/the2015collection?ref=hl

It's not as easy as it sounds and so any and all support for The 2015 Collection is very very welcome indeed.  I'm hoping that, with A Life of Rhyme, it will form the basis for some great fundraising for very worthy causes and I hope you'll come along and share my daily musings.. (and press "like" and "share" and spread the word amongst all your friends and loved ones as well)......

If you like what you read then please tell others;  if you don't then tell me (you can let me know if you like it as well)..... there's a guestbook lurking somewhere on this site and an email form which sends your message directly to my inbox.  I read everything that's sent to me and, although I may not always agree with the messages, I really enjoy finding out what you think of what I do.

But enough of my rambling... you're here to check out this site and my verses so I'll let you get on with the pointing, clicking and reading....
