Random thoughts from a random mind

I don't suffer from randomness… I, obviously, quite enjoy it!!

My friend Janet – Limerick


I have a good friend named Janet,

Who loved a song so she sang it,

She continued all night

Holding the Microphone tight,

A star, she shines on our planet.



I have a question for readers of my blog.

When I look at my Stats on this blog there is one post that is far more popular than the rest. Thank you for reading. I just wanted to know why.  Here’s the link…

https://baarmychris.wordpress.com/Cinquain – Sheep

So what is it about my ‘Sheep Cinquain’ that attracts so many views? 

1. Is it the picture? (I have to admit, if it was me searching for a post on sheep, the picture would’ve done it for me but that’s because I love sheep.)

I entered the word ‘sheep’ into Google search engine and my post doesn’t appear on the first page so it can’t be that.

2. Is it because it’s a Cinquain?

Well, again I typed ‘Cinquain’ into the search bar and it didn’t appear on that first page either.

3. What about Cinquain Sheep?

I tried putting the two words together and ‘Hey presto’ my blog appears on the first page. It’s not the first one there though so I’m still not convinced.

4. Finally, could it be just because it’s my blog?

Well I’d like to say it is but if it was my blog that interested the reader, then why would you read just my ‘Sheep Cinquain’? After all I have published 63 posts now and surely you would read others too.

I don’t have the answers which is why I’m asking you. Yes, I am talking to you.

Please humour me by leaving a comment if you’re one of those readers who has viewed my ‘Sheep Cinquain.’ Don’t worry, you can remain anonymous should you feel embarrassed about liking sheep/cinquains as much as I do.

Don’t be sheepish…ewe know it makes sense…(Sorry, don’t let me start my wordplay shenanigans!)


Pro Points V Crunchies

Weight Watchers has taken control of my days,

Tracking and Pro Points used in so many ways.

‘Shall I have this? How many points has this got?’

‘Shall I have a cold meal or should it be  hot?’



It’s getting beyond a joke,  I think,

I’m finding it harder to cope.

Some days I even stand at the sink ,

and wonder, ‘How many in soap?’



If it wasn’t for my friend,  Jan,

Who knows the points for munchies,

I would’ve given up the plan,

’til she told me there’s five in Crunchies.



Thank Crunchie It’s Friday!!!



With special thanks to Cadbury for giving me the strength to survive, (and the chocolate.)
