Bye-bye Summer!

When I was down beside the sea
A wooden spade they gave to me
To dig the sandy shore.

My holes were empty like a cup.
In every hole the sea came up,
Till it could come no more.

At the Sea-Side, by Robert Louis Stevenson

Adrian Mole

"I took off my clothes and examined myself carefully in the wardrobe mirror this morning. My front view is quite nice. My shoulders are slightly stooped, my pectorals are perhaps lacking definition, but I am still above average in the looks department. However, my profile leaves a lot to be desired and, yes, Mohammed, my old schoolfriend, you spoke the simple truth: in profile, I do look five months pregnant. My belly, once a discreet concave, is now distinctly convex. How did this happen without my noticing? "
Sue Townsend published another volume in the Adrian Mole diaries. The Lost Diaries of Adrian Mole, 1999-2001, was published in hardcover in 2008!
It´s very cool! Try it!

What do you think is the most powerful entity in the world? Some say love. Some money. It’s a thought provoking question that of course there is no definitive answer to, but a great one none the less to ponder.
I think my answer to this question would have depended upon the stage of life I was asked. If I had been asked as a teenager I probably would have said ‘friends.’ If asked in my whirlwind twenties, the romantic in me would have said ‘love.’ At a particular stage of personal growth in my early thirties I would have been likely to say ‘attitude.’ If asked now, I would say ‘family.’
