Wednesday 8 February 2012: Sneaks in...

712/365: ... drops off a very duff shot...

... and sneaks out again.

I have some random nonsense trapped in my head to get out... so here it goes... it's about a woman I see every day as I drive home:

There's a woman who sits by the window
And watches the traffic go past
Day in and day out, she's there waiting
Seeing life going on far too fast.

Yes, she's always just sat by the window
Inside her cocoon of dark flock
And the traffic it pauses and shuffles
To the dreary grey beat of her clock

There's a woman who sits by the window
Is she lonely or never alone?
Accompanied by traffic in colours
Wafting by on their rainbow way home

I see her sat there by the window
Afternoons, just gone half four
Her glass wall and my metal prison
Confine us yet separate more.

To the woman who sits by the window
I see you and know you spot me
One day we should look and see further
Then wave, smile and set ourselves free.

Random waffle ejected from my head.

Busy day as ever. Staff development thing in the morning and lots of nice chats with nice people. Office stuff afterwards. And a pounding migraine by 3pm.

The kids are currently going crackers upstairs and I haven't the energy to sort them out. Mid week fun, anyone?

PS I drove part of my way home along a lane still rutted with snow
PPS And despite the ice and snow, it didn't stop a car coming the other way from nearly driving me off the road as it hurtled past.
PPPS Have blipped this before a couple of times - once in August last year and once in late September
