CAR STORY – Part 4

Desperation. Search radius increased to forty miles. Hours are spent on the interweave. We head North towards London to look at several cars at a particular garage. Unbeknownst to us there are 2 large luxurious Volvos on the forecourt. We sit in them. One has very comfortable leather armchairs for seats with an undergusset heating […]

IT ISN’T NECESSARILY …

… what you look at but the way you look at it that gives you the hump. Of course the converse or reverse is the way of the spin doctor. Do you think that you know who, what or where you are? Somebody else might not agree. As a very famous person said “Life is […]

JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WORRIED.

My fame has spread. I have been hounded by the daddypaparazzi whilst taking a well deserved break in Surfugal.

PART FOUR

He drove slowly up to the house, got out of the car and opened the tailgate. He knew there would be questions. “Where have you been? You’ve been a long time.” “Oh nowhere …… I went and had a look at the sea. I’ll sort out the shopping and then make us a nice cup […]

A SHORT STORY – in reverse

Part 5 “Never mind – I was going to crush them anyway to make a base for a cheese cake. Are there a couple of whole ones left to have with our cuppa? – I do enjoy a gingernut about this time of day.” [All characters in this story are fictitious and any resemblance to […]

PART 5

She shrugged. “I was going to crush them anyway to make a base for a cheese cake. Are there a couple of whole ones left to have with our cuppa? I do enjoy a gingernut about this time of day.” [Have a wonderful weekend and don’t drop your gingernuts] .
