Friday so soon!

There is so much to be done and not having my laptop for a few days has not helped. I have just realised how much information, images and templates I keep on it which doesn't help when I have stuff to organise.

In 2 weeks time I am attending a Trade Fayre re Jon's business and need to organise a stand.I am trying to find some sort of stand via various agencies. Te local council were particularly unhelpful and I must admit I lost my patience somewhat, pointing out that in the current financial climate they should be helping to promote local businesses, especially in the manufacturing sector! The council mentioned funding but again this is not the answer. I do not want to submit a business plan for their perusal so that 6 months down the bureaucratic route we get some money to buy an exhibition stand we will probably never use again and by which time we will have no need for as the exhibition will have long gone!

And there is a brochure to write.....I could go on but I wont, instead here is my Flash 55 for Friday......enjoy it! I certainly do!

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

She had acted quickly but had it been quickly enough?

Holding his attention she gazed into his deep dark eyes and chatted away
discussing the nonsense’s of the moment,

She kissed him deeply.
He snuggled his face into her hair,

She reached the door!

“I saw you!” he whispered!

She returned the last Rollo!

  2. Hahaha, oh nice one!

    Sorry to hear about all the red tape you've encountered trying to rent a stall for a few hours, I can't believe they expect you to BUY the bloomin' thing, that's outragous!

  3. Love it!!!!

    Mine's posted HERE [scroll down below the Show N Tell post]

    Have a terrific weekend.

  4. Sometimes you can't6 get away with anything.

  5. I LOVE Rollo's, and I loved your whimsical 55!
    Thank you Mrs Nesbit for joining our Friday Fun!
    Yes I am a Biker. I have a 2001 Harley-Davidson Road King. I see you ride as well...:-)
    Keep the Tank Side Up....G

  6. Tsk! Can't get anything past him. :)

  7. sometimes, the charm just won't work :D

  8. So much fun. I am with g-man on the rollos and whimsy, but have no bike.

  9. The charm offensive won't get you anywhere with the local council Mrs N. You have to be a council member (or sleeping with one) to get anything without going through the six month application process. I'm going to take a photo of the stand we spoke about and I'll email it to you to see if it fits the bill.
    See you soon.

  10. I haven't had a Rollo in forever! Now, I want one.

  11. Dear Mrs. N,
    This is the first time reading your blog, I found it while looking for someone to visit who keeps bees.
    It said you had a neighbor beekeeper? My daughter does bees and were traveling to england from the us and she wants to visit a beekeeper. Could you help us?My e-mail is thanks so much! Linda


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
