Glittering lights extinguished and we’re left with the dark,
As Dame Elizabeth Taylor died on the 23rd of March.
She was a veritable legend, an icon, a gem;
Celebrated worldwide, loved by ladies and men.
Born on February the 27th, in 1932
Becoming a Hollywood Great was what she was destined to do.
From British beginnings, America beckoned
And she became a force with whom to be reckoned.
Along with her career, she had a rich family life;
She gave the world 4 children and was eight-times a wife.
10 great-grandchildren followed after she turned 39
And our thoughts go to her family at this difficult time.
Today is a celebration for women all around the world;
Ladies who’ve dared to dream big, ever since they were little girls.
For the diversity and talents that lie within a feminine heart;
For the courage and determination that prevents us falling apart.
We can raise families and build businesses and be proud of all we’ve achieved
Where once over, visions of that scale, could never have been believed.
Ladies, stand up and be counted, smile at how far we have come
And cherish every single day, whether daughter, wife, or mum.
Don’t let anybody tell you that there are set paths for you to follow
As a little girl with a dream, is an inspiring woman of tomorrow.
So celebrate all women, and acknowledge the great things they do
And tell a lady close to your heart, just how much she means to you.
Is there a specific woman who demonstrates remarkable skill?
Or perhaps you know a lady, who if she can help, she will.
Or perhaps there is a woman that you just feel honoured to know;
Why not tell me all about her, by leaving a comment below!

Glamourous presenter, and true yummy Mum
Today Holly Willoughby turns 30 years young.
With a lovely son and partner, and a daughter on the way
You are practically guaranteed to have a marvellous day.
A true natural beauty, with long flowing locks,
Entertaining us each morning, alongside the silver fox
Not even a naked chef could render you disconcerted
And when Gino did his nudey bit, your eyes were well averted.
Now as you wave goodbye to the tender age of 29
Your thirties will be a journey, through which you’ll continue to shine.
With a glittering showbiz career and happy family by your side;
Holly Willoughby, you’re a star, and you should be brimming with pride.
So from all of your followers and This Morning fans galore,
I hope your 30th birthday brings you all you wish and more.
And because it is your birthday, I decree that Britain be jolly
As everybody joins with me to say Happy 30th Birthday Holly!
There are moments in my life that I will remember, because you were there.
There are moments in my life when I feel I need you more than air.
There are moments in my life that I have to tell you how much I care.
And for us, those moments never shall decline.
There were times that I felt my heart could not contain such a feeling.
One tiny glance or touch was enough to set me reeling.
I didn’t just walk on air, I was dancing on the ceiling.
Oh how glad I am to say that you are mine.
For years it will be me and you, and that’s the way it should be
For nobody fits as nicely, as you slot together with me
And with the depth of our love, together we are truly free.
This is absolutely the greatest love of all time.
One half Llama, the other half bloke;
Into trading and solving jokes,
An abundance of grass is all that you need
To make this a very happy birthday indeed!
Who knows what this coming year might attract?
I just hope it doesn’t bring on a Llama attack.
We only need one Llama, and that Llama is you
So you can be proud of that, whatever you do.
Make this the year that great memories are made.
Bring joy to the world as you continue to trade.
I wish you every happiness and times free from Strife!
Happy Birthday Andrew and remember, a Llama is for life!
