An invitation to the place where we began would once have sent my heart soaring. Dare I allow it to do so again?
I am a business owner, wife, mother, new grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, mother-in-law, great aunt - lots of different hats! I love my blog where I can write about things that make me smile, that interest or annoy me, I love comments and meeting new bloggers, also rather fond of chocolate - any type and an occasional glass of red wine.♥

The bag was heavy but Molly dragged it to the station. Her face turned towards the sun, its warmth flowed through her body, easing the pain. Cosmic pain relief, she laughed out loud at the simplicity of it.
Over the years my research dragged on. Then one day, I got a letter from my aunt, in response to a plea for help with the seemingly endless list of children borne to my great grandparents.
Hugo loved music, but whenever he sang people ran covering their ears. He played several musical instruments reasonably badly, only the...
I have been AWOL from Friday Fictioneers for too long; hopefully the reduction in workload will allow me to resume my writing which I have really missed
My photograph for today is of Dale Chihuly’s glass sculpture which stands in the reception area of the Atlantis Hotel in Dubai.
The prompt this week spoke to me of my childhood and memories of actually getting a garage of our own, something only people with cars had
There was no-one else around when I took this photo of a path onto South Beach.

It was something to feel the buzz around South Wales ahead of the NATO Summit. OK, we moaned about road closures..
Well I’m back from holiday, feeling refreshed and relaxed, so bring it on! I missed you all last week, and your stories.
It’s that time again when we Friday Fictioneers are sharpening our wits and our pencils, trying to come up with a suitable story to satisfy our…
When I refused Henry’s proposal, I know you were saddened as you wanted us to be sisters. My disposition would not have suited your brother and I believed the wedded state was not for me.
It was with great sadness that I learned this morning of the death of Lauren Bacall. I grew up listening to my mother talk about her films,
Almost A Family Genre: Fiction Word Count: 100 They stood facing each other in the bare, dimly lit room. ‘Do you want this?’ ‘Yes, they are…
In the early morning we claw at the overnight rubble and debris searching for the missing. The children are terrified, the women distraught. The angry and patriotic young men talk of taking up arms while their mothers weep.
No Forks Needed Genre: Crime Word Count: 100 Mary sat at her usual table, her laptop open and ready. The story she was writing was going well, but now she was stuck. Did she kill off the character giving her problems, or try to rework the plot? She was watching the street, waiting for her muse to return, when two strangers came in. One man went to the kitchen. She heard a
I have been busy working on a tender document which has proved much more difficult than I ever imagined when agreeing to do it.

I had read reports in the press of the increasing numbers of people approaching retirement age, who wanted to carry on working, in some cases they just had to. I wasn’t ready to retire then and I’m not now, but I thought that I
I’m waiting at the station. Penny is late. We agreed to meet at 10.00 the train leaves at 10.15 and it’s now ten past. I fiddle with the strap of my overnight bag, I do not feel comfortable waiting here on my own, but it is something I have had to get used to. Being on my own. I thought Penny was different from the rest, she is such a good listener and always says the right thing. She bolsters my
