Everyone gathered for the fireworks as midnight struck. Drink in hand, she checked the time on her phone. She hadn’t updated it since arriving in England and it still showed what she felt to be ‘real time’; when her husband arrived home from work, when her youngest daughter finished studying for the day and when her grandchildren went to bed. 2:00am!! Guilt-ridden, she realised that despite not adjusting her phone, it was exactly two hours too late to wish hubby a Happy New Year. Should she call and risk waking him or simply send a txt and hope for the best?
Here’s is a great post from Fay, (Dancing in the Rain) for Week#55 100 Word Challenge for Grown ups over at Julia’s Place. The prompt was ‘…and the apple fell…’
Fay has used the celebrations in Israel for her inspiration. After leaving a comment, please pop over to see what the others have done with the forbidden fruit! 😉
The Chairman of the Board was weighed down with responsibility and understandably had little time to address the staff on the eve of this festive holiday. Yet, traditionally, he found himself raising a piece of apple dripping with honey to his lips, to symbolise a sweet new year. Just when the camera zoomed in, sharing the moment with employees in mobile-phone stores throughout the country, the piece of fruit slipped out of his hand. As the apple fell, he shrugged his shoulders helplessly before licking his sticky fingers, brown eyes crinkling boyishly. With perfect composure, he then turned to greet the Minister of Communications.
Here is Wendy Errington’s great entry for Week#55 on the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups. It’s slightly different this week as writers have to match the picture with a suitable wording to go into a birthday card! Do pop over to Julia’s Place and see the other entries!
Evil cackling heard from behind the Catty Card Category alerted Sam that someone had found the perfect card.
“That’ll be £2.99 please…thank you.”
“It’s just what I’m looking for!”
As Sam slid the card into the paper bag she read:
“You look all done up like a dog’s dinner, rather than the cat that got the cream –
Happy Birthday Sister!”
Another satisfied customer she mused.

I’m heading to London next weekend to stay with Tom. He started a new job as a doctor the other week and moved in with his girlfriend. When he was five he once said – “You don’t tell me what to do, my brain does!” It still makes me smile.
Megan has just got in from babysitting. She has an early shift at work tomorrow. She’s a very efficient waitress in a restaurant. Bossy actually! When she got in, she said it had taken her 3 attempts to park the car outside. I smile.
My son and daughter are my legacy.

So I’m new to this. I’ve been viewing and winking …and scrolling through pages of men. But nothing really has caught my eye.
This online dating malarkey is really proving to be difficult. I mean, first of all there was “My Ad” to write with a word limit and the agony of which photo to use! I needed the obligatory head shot. Which is my best side?
And as a picture paints a thousand words then do I include one of me on my bike, on holiday in Filey, my parrot, me white water rafting or abseiling or sleeping? Or would seven prove to be too much?
