Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

If we were having coffee, I would apologise for my absence last week. It was my birthday, and I was away for the weekend. It was my eldest daughter's birthday too - the day before mine. She was born at 7.40pm on the 15th of April - the absolute best early birthday present. It's hard … Continue reading Resting My Eyes – Weekend Coffee Share: 23 April 2016

Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

If we were having coffee I would tell you that, between interpreting jobs, I had a fun and creative week with my daughters. My eldest has a photography project due, so we set up a few spooky photo sessions (one of the artists she chose, Sarah Thompson, creates haunting images). The original shots are manipulated to create mood and atmosphere, … Continue reading Blood Bath – Weekend Coffee Share 9/4/16

If we were having coffee…there would be a lot to discuss.

If we were having coffee I might glance over my shoulder from time to time, and be forced to admit that I'm worried about retribution. I pranked my daughter a few days ago and she swore payback - she's extremely good at it! This would no doubt lead to a conversation about pranks, and I … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would be a lot to discuss.

If we were having coffee…there would only be time for one cup.

If we were having coffee, it would be ridiculously early (sorry). I'm going on a trip to the seaside today - Bridlington to be exact. It's a place my dad particularly loved and, as it's his birthday, my sisters and I always take this day to do things to remember him. So, we go to … Continue reading If we were having coffee…there would only be time for one cup.

If we were having coffee…we would be dicussing strong female role models

If we were having coffee I would avoid talking about one job, just so I could prattle on about my other. It's a beautiful day, so we would be outside in the garden, sitting beneath a large red umbrella with an array of tasty treats between us. Perhaps we would have a cold drink or, … Continue reading If we were having coffee…we would be dicussing strong female role models

5 Days – 5 Photos Challenge – Day 1: Pride

I’ve been set a challenge by the lovely Colleen over at Silver Threading. Those of you who know me well, will know I can never resist a challenge, and though I was going to begin tomorrow, I just received the best news and wanted to share it.   But I’m getting ahead of myself. Here … Continue reading 5 Days – 5 Photos Challenge – Day 1: Pride

Hear me roar – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

When I saw the prompt for this week’s stream of consciousness challenge, my mind went in a dozen different directions. I could use the words scene or seen in a short piece of fiction, because I rarely pass up the chance, and I could sense several of my characters shuffling forward to catch my attention. … Continue reading Hear me roar – Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Crazy Craft Sunday – ROW80 Update

It's short and sweet from me this week, and when I say sweet I mean sweet. I spent the weekend with my adorable nephew who is a little shining star...he is Z-man 🙂 Though I haven't done a great deal of writing, I have honoured the arts and spent most of the day creating, painting … Continue reading Crazy Craft Sunday – ROW80 Update
