Resolution [1]

The Little Owl
Albrecht Dürer (1471 – 1528)

going to bed earlier

when you get to a certain age
you have to make a choice
between an extra hour in the day
or black rings around your eyes

I have reached that age

which is a nuisance
because I needed that extra hour


  1. You know Poppy, don't you?
    She'd be happy to advise you on a concealer.

  2. Beauty rest.
    Me likes.

  3. this owl looks rather sorry for itself - quite cute. Or am I anthropomorphising it ?

  4. So what happens when you go to bed earlier and still have black rings? I am referring to myself and not you of course!

  5. It is my dearest wish that the day started an hour later than it does. Surely we can all band together and go to work an hour later, dark circle free.

  6. I think that we need a picture of a panda really

  7. I am a Black Ringed Harpie....... its not just the eyes that suffer from that extra hour (My very own Mr M will testify to that......)

  8. I've been that age since I was 23.

  9. I've never actually made it beyond a 10 pm bedtime--even at university!

  10. I really like that little owl.

  11. Shhhh, I have a secret to share with you. I just discovered Garnier's under eye black circle and bag removing roll on thingy with concealer in it. I am SURE it is the answer to both our prayers. Those nice people on the TV wouldn't exaggerate, would they?

    I shall let you know how I get on.

  12. Oh Mr. M! That is not the way to go about obtaining coffee and walnut cakes.


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
