Thought I better get round to writing a bit about myself. 

I'm married to Bob and have a son who is studying at university in England. We live on the Isle of Man - moved here from Birmingham UK in 1996

My poetry journey began in November 2013 after my husband was diagnosed with cancer. The first poem I wrote was called was Splendid Isolation. This was written after we returned to the Isle of Man after his surgery in England. I felt so alone and vulnerable in the accommodation  - all I really needed was someone to talk to face to face and maybe have a hug! I posted a few poems on a friends facebook page - mainly humerous poems . An on-line friend Jenny Brewer saw my poems and kept telling me to join here. It took about 3 weeks of her asking me if i had joined to pluck up the courage to finally post and 'Just Desserts'  was the first poem I posted here - it is based on a true experience! Since then my life has been a whirl and I since Jared Pickett's contest I am writing with Darren Watson collaboratively as JaDazzle United.

I work part time with students with special needs mainly Aspergers Syndrome which is a form of autism.
I adore penguins - the animals not the biscuits!
Loveeeee tall men with greying hair
I love baking/cooking
I like to potter in the garden - need more time to commit to it but have aged parents who need me more than my garden does
Adore most types of music - will give anything a listen
Best ever gig - Knebworth 1986 when 'Queen' headlined

Poetry Soup Farty Party

Blog Posted:7/4/2014 8:00:00 AM

I posted this poem on 30th June

Passing Wind

Do you remember the day

When some wind went astray

And you let out a smelly old fart

Just one of those embarrassing moments, don’t let it tear you apart

A botty burp, a fart or a fluff  - you may call it another name

It’s all completely natural don’t hang your head in shame


I once worked with a lad I called ‘beans boy’

Oh boy that kid sure could let rip

Think his mum fed him baked beans and curries

Cos we sure got a good whiff of it

On bad days we’d opened the windows

We’d gasp for some sweet smelling air

It was so bad I thought I’d get asphyxiated

And would be found dead in my chair


Since I posted my poem there has been an explosion of farty poems from others who have joined in the fun and brought a bit of life to the site which I find pretty lacklustre at the moment.

Many thanks to :-

Mystic Rose   - Tooting All The Way To China

Casarah Nance  -  Whew whats that stink

Seren Roberts  -  Rumbling tummy

Tim Smith  - Cut The Cheese AND Jan is not a smelly fart

I then Posted: Tim Smith I'm Fartbroken

C L Thornton - At The Request Of Jan Allison

Toquyen Harrell -  Deadly Quiver

Jerry T Curtis - Stiles in Piles & Chez Pierre s Fart Cafe &  Mikey And His Irish Ass

Peter Dome - Methane Bertha

Jenny Brewer - Jan's Fart

Mandy Tams the Golden Girl - No Farting Allowed

Peter Duggan - The Old Lady named Nell

Come on join in the fun and lets get people commenting and posting!

    October is a good time cause the weather won't be too hot,and hopefully not rainy either.I was in Uk last April/May.We try to visit every year ,and always different parts of U.k.We love U.k and its wonderful citizens. We never visited Isle Of Man..I'll add it to the list : ).

    Wow, you inspired a lot of gas passing poems, and I love yours!!! Hope I can check all of these out. There is someone at Soup that wrote a really good root a tooting poem a long time ago. I think it was a good friend of PD's, not sure. It was pretty hilarious too!!!
