A Moment in Time

This is the last photograph I took. It was yesterday afternoon at precisely 4.05pm. (or so it says on my Samsung Note 3 mobile!) I had gone into ‘Superdrug’ to buy some mints and at the counter was this display of Vera Wang ‘Lovestruck’ perfume on special offer at just £29.00 instead of the usual £58.00 which is a total bargain. 

Lovestruck is my eldest daughters favourite perfume and I took the photograph to show her incase she wants or needed some more.

That is the story behind the last photograph that I took.

DP Challenge: Mature Student Achievement

Achievement

Have you just run 26.2 miles, finished a long-term project, or met a personal goal? This week, show us an achievement.

I decided in September to start an evening class, once a week for 2 hours in my local college in Wales to re-educate myself. As a mature student (the only mature student!) I have to study a 2 year course in just 26 weeks and with only 2 hours a week tutition I can assure you at times it is stressful. but so very satisfying.

Just before Christmas I sat the first of my controlled assessments in my pure English Language course. I think you will agree by the comments written I did quite well. ..so thats the first hurdle crossed

Well hello there

Greetings, Stranger

You’re sitting at a café when a stranger approaches you. This person asks what your name is, and, for some reason, you reply. The stranger nods, “I’ve been looking for you.” What happens next?

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/greetings-stranger/

This sort of thing happens to me all the time as I own my own Cafe/Tearoom, nothing out of the ordinary in this question for me at all.

Who I am is a secret.

Locked and Sealed

Can you keep a secret? Have you ever — intentionally or not — spilled the beans (when you should’ve stayed quiet)?

Who I am here on WordPress is a secret…I can keep that secret.

Dont play with destiny

Advantage of Foresight

You’ve been granted the power to predict the future! The catch — each time you use your power, it costs you one day (as in, you’ll live one day less). How would you use this power, it at all?

Never play with fate and your destiny because you may not like what you find if you alter your path.

“Those who have knowledge, don’t predict. Those who predict, don’t have knowledge. “

Lao Tzu, 6th Century BC Chinese Poet

Tears for Jack.

Moved to Tears

Do movies, songs, or other forms of artistic expression easily make you cry? Tell us about a recent tear-jerking experience!

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/moved-to-tears-2/

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/

me and baby Jack may 2013

Generally movies dont make me cry although War Horse did, I sobbed because it was about an animal and anything to do with animals makes me emotional. 

Real life can make me cry, my last tear jerking experience was when I lost my 10-year-old dog last summer. I cried before his passing whilst I nursed him and I cried after his passing in my arms, I still cry now just over a year later when he comes to my mind and I see his face in his photographs and then I cry and I cry and I cry.

I cry for my best friend, the best friend I have ever had.

I cry for Jack.

Jack I miss you and I love you still and I cry now as I write this.

xoxo C
