I had such a lovely time round at Sue’s before that I have come back again for another visit. Luckily, she didn’t slam the door in my face, and in fact, made me feel very welcome. As my blog is less niche and more mish-mash, I found it a little tricky as to what to write…
I am not a writer per se
I do not have exotic holidays
No huge weightloss to boast
No recipes to post
And I don’t work out every day!
I am pretty rubbish at art
With SEO, I don’t even know where to start
At fashion, I fail
And dancing as well
And for marketing, I don’t have the heart.
Giving parenting advice, I will pass
Photography, I’d be bottom of the class
My sewing is erratic
I’m no gardening fanatic
And I can’t tell you how best to clean glass!
There is not that much I can do
Except write a fun poem or two
A limerick or verse
Is my way to converse
And hope that it entertains you.

About the author
Judy Martin has just turned fifty and has entered a new phase in her life. She recently started work as an Associate Nurse in the community and loves it, finally finding her niche. She has in the past, done everything from serving as a soldier in the Women’s Royal Army Corps, to helping manage a kebab shop!
Judy has been writing humorous poems since she was a little girl. She has always had a love of words, and expressing herself through rhyme is so appealing. She enjoys the rhythm of the words as they dance to her tune.
She draws her inspiration from everyday events that most of us can relate to and puts her unique spin on it. Her large family is often her inspiration, as is the weather, the seasons,housework, even sex. No subject is safe from manipulation into verse!
Judy lives in the beautiful county of Kent with her long-suffering husband Bob, (Mr Grump), daughter Lucinda (Miss Hap), and not forgetting Roxy, the beautiful Cavalier King Charles spaniel.

Are you one of those people that barge through life, trying to get through it as best as you can, swimming against the everyday worries and stresses of life? Well, I have found a way to make it much more enjoyable. Don’t you think everything sounds better when it rhymes? I certainly do. In fact, I have found that everything from doing the housework to growing older, can sound more positive and less daunting when made into a little ditty. This book is about finding the humour, or raising a smile from the everyday things that we can all relate to in life, and looking at them from a different perspective. Nothing escapes versification; there is even a subject on sex! After all, that is one subject where there is plenty of room for laughter, even if it may not be the right moment!
Amazon review by Ritu Bhathal
“A fantastic collection of humerous poems, that span many facets of life. Judy Martin is a great poet, with that knack of getting her rhyming just right.
There were many poems that made me giggle out loud, and some that made me say “Aw!” Some I felt may have been written with me in mind!
So go on, treat yourself! Dip into this lovely collection of verse, you won’t regret it!”
