Lost time


Time to turn our clocks back tonight.

Do you like daylight saving?

I love some of the funny stories I’ve heard over the years about people who swear they’ve really lost (or gained) an hour.

Hope the topic inspires some stories or poems 🙂



At Ten O’clock…

Today’s prompt…

This clock brings a special memory for me of my wonderful Uncle Ric. Some years ago I had been through a bit of a rough time and Uncle Ric travelled from his home in Wangaratta to stay with my Mum and Dad for a few days. One day, after I dropped the kids at school, Dad took Mum, Uncle Ric and me for a drive and a picnic down to the coast near Post Welshpool. We had a magic day, just the break I needed. Before Uncle Ric left for home he pushed a twenty dollar note into my hand and told me to buy something special for myself. It was just something he did for his special neices, he said.  Uncle Ric and my Aunty Kath who was my Nan’s sister and had died  the previous year, were unable to have children which meant that all the neices and nephews on both sides of their families were treated like their own. A week after Uncle Ric gave me the money, this clock which I had long admired, was on sale for $19.99! Uncle Ric passed away about seven years ago but with every tick of my clock he is remembered 🙂

NaNoWriMo Update: Getting there 🙂 Yesterday I wrote in lots of smaller blocks and eventually passed my daily target and finished only 132 words short of the overall target just before midnight. I gave a giant sigh of relief, then remembered I have to do it all again today! But writing about Uncle Ric has given me an idea to use in my story, so here goes…

Dinner time

Today’s prompt…

I guess it’s always dinner time with this clock 🙂
