Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 158 #SecondChance


“Life always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow.” – Dylan Thomas

Poignant choice of quote today Spidey, as the date marks one year since my near miss accident on the M6 last year.

For those of you that remember, you’ll know about the way my car lost control and how I ended up spinning across the motorway, with cars whizzing by… For those of you that weren’t here for that part of my journey, you can read more here.

I might not have been around to write this post if it hadn’t been for my Guardian Angel looking out for me that day, and for that angel, I am truly grateful. It made me feel like I have been given a second chance at life.

But the reality is that we really do have the chance to start over, every new day. There is always the chance to change your direction each dawn.

Well, actually every new moment is a chance to change things…

I’m still making mistakes during this ‘second’ chance of mine, but I am aware that I can keep learning, and be changing every day to make myself a better person and to make life a more wonderful place.

As it is, I am sat here with my arm in a sling – my right arm too! Yes, clumsy klutz me has struck again. I fell over at the end of the school day on Friday and managed to bang my arm. A trip to A & E yesterday confirmed that I have a hairline fracture in my elbow, ouch! So it’s off to the fracture clinic for me tomorrow. Joy!

Obviously, this weekend is not the luckiest of my life, what with an accident last year, and now this injury… But I shall not let it get me down… There is still a smile upon my face, and even though it will be slow, what with typing with one hand, I may get a little more time to write, since I can’t do much else!

Has life ever handed you a second chance? Did you grab it by the horns and use it?

Stay positive 🙂

Happy Sunday Peeps!

#SoCS Feb 24/18 – Door

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “door.” Write about a door you walked through this week that wasn’t your own. Enjoy!

A door I passed through this week was the door to my classroom. It’s not a particularly snazzy door. In fact, it’s a  fire exit too, with a push handle for easy opening.

We try and make it look interesting by putting posters up on it depicting topics that interest the children. At the moment, dinosaurs grace the bottom half, as that is the part they have to eye level.

I do love that door, as, though it isn’t my own, it takes me into a room that I class as my territory in school. My classroom, my nursery, my domain!

Hope that wasn’t cheating, but there you go!

Catch ya later Peeps!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

February 22 – Flash Fiction – Unicorn

Charli’s prompt this week:

February 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a unicorn. It can be realistic or fantastical. Go where the prompt leads.

“A unicorn? You want a unicorn?” Sarah turned from her daughter and looked at her ex-husband, Peter, rolling her eyes. “Honestly, it’s like living with Verruca Salt! She thinks she can demand anything, and that you’ll get it! How are you going to handle this one? They’re not even real!”
She was fed up of her daughter’s unrealistic demands, and the fact that Peter, anxious to score Best Parent points, would always succumb to the demands.
Peter just smiled and said “No problem, my Princess!” and hastily typed Unicorn into the Amazon search bar. Amazon sold everything after all!


#WritePhoto – Dusk

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

Barbie and Ken are done now, so it’s time to revert to a little seriousness now.. (if I can!)

Though the clouds appear to rumble across the sky, they don’t signal danger, but simply frame the beauty that is the sun, trying to shine into our lives…
Beautiful white wisps
Reflecting the sun’s strong rays
Clouds offer us hope
Know the clouds will pass, and that the sun will brighten our lives soon enough, we just need to wait… dusk passes through into night, which welcomes dawn, and a new day…




It is that time of year again! I have mentioned the ABBA’s a few times recently, but the biggie posts will start rolling now…

Today the committee have been busy and I know that alongside SachaHis Geoffleship, Huggable Hugh , a great story crafter, Adam Dixon , who I met for the first time at the last bash, fantastic author Helen Jones, and the delightful Shelley Wilson, who is responsible for turning me to YA fiction, have all been posting about this year’s awards categories!

Time for you all to get your thinking caps on! The nominations will be open soon enough! Visit the link to read up on the various categories!
