I have selected just one pub from each month of this year that I visited ~ Can you match each loo with the correct pub and name the month it was taken during 2017?

Here are the pubs ~ Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party (Bletchley) ~ The White Harte (Buckingham) ~ The Moon & Stars (Penge) ~ Brewers Arms (Lewes) ~ The Swan (Chiswick) ~ The Birds Nest (Deptford) ~ The Windermere (South Kenton) ~ The Avon Packet (Bristol) ~ The Anglers Retreat (Marsworth) ~ Rose & Crown (Charlbury) ~ Ramore Wine Bar (Portrush) Stratton Arms (Tuweston)

I will start you off by telling you that Loo L belongs to Captain Ridley’s Shooting Party and that Loo E was taken in May 2017….. Good luck with my festive quiz

Really enjoyed my first visit to the Upfest Street Art Festival, Bedminster, Bristol. I took sooo many snaps and will try to show more from the festival.

like an old unused camera

forgotten face on peeling paint

fused entwined snap 

life is like a roll of film waiting to be developed

“His Mermaid Dame” dedicated to Spanks (Happy Valentines early!)

surrender inhibitions to the wind
my enigmatic lover coos
melting sealing wax on envelopes
what does one have to lose

a petal pusher of fine silk
quilting threads once quite bare
a blushing grape, a winery
squeezing all my wicked wares

he’s my tailor and my sailor
my ship and anchor too
I’ll set sail at once upon the sea
his mermaid dame to woo

a passion play of trickery
plunging into deep desires
bathing luxury of wryest wit
and red hot molten fires

be gone the dowdiness of blue
a shade I no longer care to wear
a citrus orange or tangerine
perhaps they’ll stop and stare

my reflection is a shining star
jumping off the pearly moon
gliding across the milky way
whistling a snappy tune

no longer in a sea of glib
a rainbow coat I’ll knit
if I can be your ever last
and you can be my grit

for lovers on a ship set sail
in passions murky waters
we’ll be on course for ever more
creating sons and daughters
