There’s Nowhere Quite Like England — May 19, 2016

There’s Nowhere Quite Like England

This is a poem that I wrote many years ago but I have since updated by added another verse. For my 50th birthday, my sister and brother-in-law recorded my mum reading it for me and provided some background music too. I have put it at the end of the poem for you to enjoy.

 

There’s Nowhere quite like England

There’s Nowhere quite like England

with its counties and its shires

The ancient, rolling countryside

The marshes and the mires

?

There’s nowhere quite like England

The coastline and the sea

The churches and cathedrals

All steeped in history

?

There’s nowhere quite like England

The people are unique

We have our ‘quaint’ traditions

And like the Queen we speak!!

?

There’s nowhere quite like England

The climate so insane

One minute, brilliant sunshine

The next it’s lashing rain!

?

There’s nowhere quite like England

We love a cup of tea

Fish and chips and clotted cream

And juicy strawberries!

?

There’s nowhere quite like England

And, although it’s very small

To me, it is quite frankly

The most wonderful place of all

 

 

 

Episode 312: A new Princess and Playmate For George. — May 3, 2015

Episode 312: A new Princess and Playmate For George.

Amidst a great deal of excitement, a new royal princess was born yesterday. William and Katherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at hospital at 6am yesterday morning as Katherine was in the early stages of labour.

Whilst the poor woman was puffing and panting, not to mention pushing, the world’s press were gathered outside the hospital desperate for news. Our national news reports were covering every aspect and angle they could whilst awaiting confirmation that the baby had been born.

News soon filtered out that a baby girl was born at 8:34am weighing, 8lb 3oz, There had already been huge speculation that the baby would be a girl, and the Queen wore a pink outfit yesterday, to mark her great-granddaughter’s arrival.

Poor little Prince George went to visit his mum and new baby sister, and trotted along holding his dad’s hand, probably terrified at all the people looking at him and taking photos. He did manage a little wave to them though, despite his bemusement.

From about 5pm onwards when I tuned in to watch the news, there was a shot of the hospital door as it was reported that William, Katherine and the new baby were going to leave soon (Prince George had already left; there is no excuse to mess up his evening routine, and he had to be bathed and have his tea.)!

Around 6:30pm we finally got to see the proud parents. Katherine looked as fresh as a daisy with immaculate hair and make-up. No doubt her stylists were on hand to sort her out, as she was probably a bit dishevelled after giving birth less than 10 hours before!

They posed on the steps for a while with the pretty princess, but unlike they did with George, they got straight into to car and drove home, rather than speak to the press.

You have got to admire Kate; it seems like delivering a baby is on in a day’s work for her!
