Today’s prompt . . .

Guests, like fish, begin to smell after three days . . . Benjamin Franklin.

Love that quote  🙂

No, I don’t have visitors at the moment but I do hope it prompts a fun story!

The In-laws are Coming!


Actually, they’ve been and gone . . . yesterday my parents-in-law came for lunch and a pleasant afternoon catching up and solving the world’s problems 🙂

My Mother-in-Law gave me the beautiful hen a few weeks ago . . . no reason, she just saw it while browsing in a shop and thought I’d like it. I do 🙂 Very much!

I’m lucky, Noeline and Don are wonderful but over the years I’ve written quite a few stories and poems about very scary In-laws!

One of the very first poems I wrote in a writing group was about a particularly scary M-I-L. It certainly wasn’t Shakespeare but everyone laughed. Years later I met one of the ladies from that group who told me she still had a copy and it still made her laugh. I was thrilled.

In-Laws are a great inspiration for writing . . . if you have a story or poem, do send it in 🙂   (Positive Words magazine, PO Box 798, Heathcote 3523, Victoria)




Appropriate for the upcoming October issue PET theme . . . Bella, Elijah and Eilidh’s dog who will be staying while they visit Scotland 🙂



Lots of rain through the night and lots of visitors 🙂

Going Home


Today’s prompt…

Later today Nathaniel, Chau and Jackie leave for home . . . the house is going to seem very quiet!

TEN Times a Day

Today’s prompt…

I know I’ve posted a photo of my Magpie visitors before. They are getting cheekier and visit up to TEN times a day, calling out if I don’t notice them waiting and often hovering over April and Jasper’s pen in case they score a crumb or two. I studied our bird book and I’m pretty sure these two are male and female, so perhaps we’ll have lots more vistors soon 🙂

NaNoWriMo update: This will sound like one of those excuses but truly our power went out yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock and wasn’t restored until 2am. My ageing computer battery doesn’t give me much time away from power but I managed to hand write several pages by candlelight once we realised the first estimated restoration at 7pm had changed to 10pm, and then again even later. Fortunately I did add about 700 words earlier in the day but I’ve got lots of re-typing to do today, if I can decipher my writing 😦

Who let the dogs out?

Today’s prompt…

This weekend we have my son Elijah and his girlfriend Eilidh visiting with their dog Bella 🙂 But the sign comes from my daughter’s house.
