Happy Sunday Afternoon… 🖌

Oh the irony.... today marks this achievement, if it can be described as one:- 100 posts, with varying levels of interest to you - and, believe it or not, containing over 23,000 words in 2018 posts alone which could have (should have?) gone on the manuscript!

If you are vegetarian, look away now …

I've got about twenty horse rugs to go and repair, wrap and ultimately deliver to eager clients whose horses are not naked, but wearing their 'spares'.   The pressure I feel upon my shoulders I have placed there myself, as there are approx 180 in the queue behind these twenty, waiting to be washed, proofed… Continue reading If you are vegetarian, look away now …

Ignorance is bliss…

When you're stood on top of the World Trade Centre, with no knowledge that in three years time it won't be there..... Thirteen years later, your daughter visits Ground Zero and listens to an emotive and powerful lecture during a geography school trip.... <a href="https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/lecture/">Lecture</a>

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

One of my favourite films... Audrey's Holly Golightly was so forward-thinking for the time, using her charms to maintain her chosen lifestyle for a while ... and what a gem was George Peppard's character. If you recall he did not judge but befriended in a kind and funny manner while maintaining alpha properties; that's an… Continue reading Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Aim high, but remember your breathing apparatus

Travel posts from bloggers provide us with unique experiences of different parts of the world from individual points of view, and this I love.   However, I found a site today while perusing short story competitions - about which I would like to start thinking - and must share the link with you.

Sticky Toffee Pudding anyone?

As the dish went in the oven, I admit the ingredients could have looked more appetising. But this is the truth of the process; sticky toffee pudding before its glory on the plate, and the gunky sweetness which sticks to the back of your teeth.

Silver drops and fountains of strength…

I was disappointed to wake on the Sunday in Milan to discover I was wearing only one of my earrings. I had bought them specifically for my trip and I only wear silver. "What a shame."
