Meanwhile, in the queue…

“Hiya!” “Oh, Hi!” “I’m glad I’ve bumped into ya – did you hear about what happened to me the other day?” “No… what?” “In here!

Six Syllable Sat’day: Out of here!

Just taking a quick break. ‘Though you shouldn’t notice. Posts are being scheduled. I’m in a galaxy Far, far, far, far away… Mobile signal patchy. Beach is very dusty. The nights are very cold. The cocktails are good though. Went to the beach funfair. Got stuck in the Fun House. And the Hall of Mirrors. The less said the better. See you when I get … Continue reading Six Syllable Sat’day: Out of here!

The Superhero Diaries 4.1: Withdrawal Times Two

The Elite Force of Britain: a group of superheroes who joined together to solve one town’s problems, and decided to stick together for the greater good. One of the disadvantages of being in a superhero group is that one team member’s arch nemesis becomes everyone else on the team’s arch nemesis also. That is simply a cross to bear, unfortunately. One thing that isn’t as … Continue reading The Superhero Diaries 4.1: Withdrawal Times Two

Imagine

This week, Debbie’s one-word theme is Imagine. I have hundreds of photos which could provide a little something that would stir the imagination, but nothing that stood out to me that would literally fire the imagination. I started to think that I’d have to miss this week’s theme, and then I noticed a blue and clear paperweight that was doing something funky with a red … Continue reading Imagine

Cute Critter Friday: Beaks!

Durn dun. Don’t go in the water. Imagine the scene. You’re floating in the Lake, merrily minding your own business. Trying to get a shut eye or possibly two, dozing on a rather cool Winter’s afternoon. Durn dun. See it before you go swimming. You feel a presence approaching. Nonchalantly you pretend to ignore it, not fazed in the slightest… although pretending to snooze, you … Continue reading Cute Critter Friday: Beaks!

Wordle: New Valentine

Her prayers had been answered… ‘Though Cupid’s soldiers had misheard And instead of the body that she dreamed of Stood before her something she did love Large brown eyes to melt her heart of stone Wet nose and mouth chewing a bone A small furry bundle carved to perfection ‘He’ll open doors’, she thought in reflection Fingernails painted with nowhere to go She said, “Looks … Continue reading Wordle: New Valentine

Natural Beauty: Birds

#WorldWatercolorGroup I missed yesterday’s prompt of ‘bones’, due to time constraints and some weird phenomenon happening to time itself, but with Hallo Valentine’s swiftly approaching I may be able to claw some time back and use that theme for then. We shall see. Time will tell. Hopefully. On the subject of claws, today’s theme is ‘birds’, so I went for a quick hummingbird. I’ve never … Continue reading Natural Beauty: Birds

Natural Beauty: Bees

I’ve spent far longer on this painting than I should have done. It’s now 10:20pm and I started it just after 7. I kept adding a touch here and a splosh of colour there, I just couldn’t stop. Today’s prompt for #WorldWatercolorGroup is Bees. Fascinating creatures, they are, when you stop and really look at them. And they fly in a heavy, measured way, which … Continue reading Natural Beauty: Bees
