My piece is at the start. (TG!!:0)
It tells of that first long summer of secondary school holidays stretching out for months and I decide to tackle a large green bottle and plant a garden in it (as you do) only when I was moving it it smashed beneath me and my scant biological knowledge came to the fore and I waited for a sliver of glass to pierce my heart and I’d be no more. ……… still here to tell the tale! I seem to have had run ins with glass through out the piece.

This piece was inspired by being a mother of three little ones, I wanted a bit of me time and found walking did the trick. Of course if the little ones got wind of it they would want to tag along and slow down this power walk I so craved. So I got to the stage where I’d spell it out to their dad. I am going for a T. R.O.T. But as they got more with it they began to ask ” can I come for a TRO!!

Inspired by a family tradition of heading down the fields with toddlers to collect holly the first Sunday in December.
Inspired by taking my little children to the cinema and their large 3D glasses falling off their little noses.

The piece inspired by exam pressure, secondary school and those memorable teachers.
Calling rubber duck, calling rubber duck, do you copy? Over.
Yes this is rubber duck. I copy and read you loud and clear.
Well in that case, I believe we are blogging. ( I am open to arguments on the fact though.)
