Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

When I saw this week’s photo prompt was love, I thought of three things – my boyfriend and words were two, and the third was my family.  They are always there for me, with encouragement and support that manifests itself in all sorts of ways, and one of them is this funny little box.

I’ve had it since I was quite young – probably about eight or so.  My Grandma gave it to me at some point after I sent her a letter detailing the many ways in which I was feeling unloved (I can’t remember what these were, exactly, but there’s a 99% chance it related to my sister getting a biscuit and me not getting an equal number of biscuits.  That sort of stuff sent me into the depths of despair until I was about 23). If I saw the attached poem out of context now, I’m sure I’d probably pour scorn on it for being so twee…  But it’s not twee.  It’s something to remember my grandmother by, and a visual reminder that she – and the rest of my family are completely, unconditionally excellent.

Half Way There

Hello Dear Readers.

This is the last day of book six, so naturally I’ve been frantically catching up using my breaks at work and all of this evening to boot.  Except of course I haven’t, because I am knackered.  I was reading Caitlin Moran’s new book in my break at work (very funny so far), and when I got home I ate some biscuits and watched Hollyoaks.  Hollyoaks!  Not even the news, or a re-run of Friends, or anything else remotely watchable!  I am clearly a feeble wreck of a woman, in need of about sixteen hours of sleep.

To that end, I am about to retire.  (To bed, obviously.  I can’t retire from work til I’m about 70, or haven’t you been keeping abreast of the strikes?  I don’t blame you, it’s something to do with Michael Gove wanting kids to learn history in chronological order.  Except that isn’t what it’s about at all.  But he does think that.).   However, before I go, I feel the urge to sate your insatiable thirst for knowledge about how it’s all going.  So, CLICK HERE to read the last of my guest posts for Mslexia Magazine, in which I evaluate the project thus far and cunningly explain it to new readers at the same time.

Thank you, and good night.
