Through the Window 29/1

I’m breaking the rules with this one. It said, look through the window for a full minute and write about what you’ve seen. I had no time to stand and stare today.  A five period day. In three rooms. Doesn’t sound difficult until you realise you go d10, e6, d10, e6. Meeting over the otherside […]

The Best Thing Since Sliced Bread 27/01

For my cats, my cardigan is the best thing since sliced bread. It provides comfort from the harshness of the sofa, a place to rest a nose and forget the troubles of a busy life. For me, the camera in my phone  is the best thing since sliced bread, for allowing me instant gratification of […]

On our walk tonight, I saw this unusual little plant. I shall play with the Instagram filters and see what happens, but I feel its original […]

Holiday: 34

Today sees us travelling back from Wales to my Outlaws. OH is currently driving, so I have time to surf some blogs and put thumb to keypad. We left cats in bad mood (they’d been de-flead), Dad as well as can be expected, and Mum itching to get back in the kitchen – no doubt […]
