The kiddiwinks have gone to sleepies!! Yay!! Time to get the party started. So where did we leave off? Oh yes, I was about to have that second glass of wine (tick), my other half has made contact (I knew the b*stard wasn’t ‘working’), “contractors birthday babe, we’ve all gone out,” hmmm. Who is “we” I’d like to bloody well know.
The Chinese takeout was a fail. Rang up to get an answerphone message that the buggers have (booked it, packed it, fooked off) gone awol on holibobs for two weeks (are you fricken kidding me??). I was sooooo looking forward to the chicken with cashew nuts, egg fried rice and curry sauce with prawn crackers. How dare they?! Don’t they know I haven’t eaten properly for a week (sigh).
The daughter wasn’t impressed with my food suggestions so popped shop, came back with smoked salmon, cream cheese, and a bottle of Irn Bru (I kid you not). I ended up warming a jar of korma I had knocking about in the back of a cupboard that’s seen better days and cremating a naan bread (Confessions of an Irish Procrastinator, I really wish I was joking here). Swilled it all down with a third glass of wine. You know what, it wasn’t all that bad.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, not much creative writing has taken place today, but I can’t leave you all this fine evening without subjecting my wonderful six word story upon you all. So without further ado, thee Page Flutter word prompt on the theme of hope today is ‘ballgame’ and here is my offering:
Thrown a swerve – whole new ballgame.
