Celebrating the VERY small things

It's been a rather dull week, I'm afraid. The household has been plodding along without any excitement - but neither have there been any catastrophes, so I can count that in our weekly quest to Celebrate the Small Things.


I suppose we could also include the fact that I didn't fall off my horse when I went riding last weekend; and that all the seeds I've planted have started to sprout

This week's 'Close But No Cigar' moment came with the notification that my story 'Briefs Encounter' has received a commendation in the CheerReader Spring Short Story Competition. It will be on that website shortly, and I'm going to submit it to Ether Books, should you care to read it.

Anyone had a more exciting week?

    1. Thanks PP. One of life's great pleasures is plunging your hands deep into a new bag of compost - or that just me?
