Something totally different – A site for carers, care workers.

My Girlfriend has worked in the care industry for many years, and wanted to create a FB page to celebrate the good work that Carers and Care workers do, and a place where they can share their experiences with people who understand.

The FB page is called “Pull up a chair and lets talk care”

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pull-up-a-chair-and-lets-talk-care/1610028972570471

If you work in care or a Carer maybe you would like to take a look.

Author reading his own word – Poem: A Simple Man

Hi

I’ve been think how best to try and prompt my work, and have decided that maybe reading my own work and posting it on Youtube might work.

Hence, I’ve recorded my poem: A simple man, which I wrote for my girlfriend

Hope you enjoy it

Alan

You can buy the poem by searching Amazon for “Love and Life by KJA Ireland”
