Bloggers PhotoThere isn't much to say, LOL.  
I'm 42, married and live in Plymouth, England.
I've had all sorts of jobs, from admin to boat-building to gardening, but, at the moment, I work for the local theatre - cleaning windows and sweeping up. At least the people are all nice and we get plenty of free or cheap tickets : ) 
My favourite poets are Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Robert Frost. I especially love Shakespeare's Sonnet 29.
I love writing and don't think I could live without it.

Hi there everyone,

I've just had two emails, 'Your poem has received a comment on Poetry Soup' but they weren't for my poems at all. It turned out they were comments left for poems by two different poets.  

Has anyone else ever had this? I hope it's just a glitch, but after hearing about the recent  account hacking, I'm wondering...

Hope you're all having a great weekend : )

    Thanks for your advice, everybody -I really appreciate your help. As Team PS were system testing, I guess it was just a glitch : ) And, Chris, Shhhhh, don't tell everyone about my Soup mail LOL

    Hi Jack--in my attempt to wean myself from Soup addiction, I actually turned off my PS comment email notification I think 2 years ago already?--It sort of drove me crazy, itching to click on the Soup whenever I saw a notification-- of course that technique didn't work for me as I am constantly still here, lol :D... So in short- I haven't experienced this :D I hope TPS can help you with it!

    Very, very strange, Jack ol' boy! Speaking of, the other day I logged onto the Soup, only to mysteriously find myself in your account. Yes! Your account! Well, I have to admit that I couldn't stay away from checking your soupmail. WooooWeeeeeeee! Boy, you have a lot of lusty, secret admirers! I hope that your wife doesn't check out your account. Why, I had to take a cold shower after reading all of the delicious mail sent to you!

    Not yet, but if others have had a problem, it could spread.

    I had 2 E-mails for a comment, they were for one of my poems. But the poem only had 1 comment on it, but both e-mails said it was for the same poem...??? Something must be going on with Poetry soup. Linda

    I had something like that happen to me yesterday. I had three notices of comments. They all led me to someone else's poem the same one and they were all identical from the same person. Joyce
