100 words for grown ups week 37

This week’s prompt was to use one of last week’s pieces !

To be honest I felt pretty nervous about continuing hers- if you haven’t visited her blog do so as it is great.

  1. I think this is wonderful, Anna. Thank you so much for your kind words about my blog.

    1. Pleased that you liked it; having read some of the others, maybe I shouldn't have been so anxious to try to carry on in a similar style; but I enjoyed the challenge of doing so :O)

  3. What a wonderful piece. You have done this perfectly x

      Always next time though...
