It’s raining on my nearly dried washing

on September 25, 2013

If only I’d been bothered to bring in the duvet covers and sheets when I had the chance. Now they are dripping on the line, more wet than when they first came out of the machine. The sky is grey and lumpy and I need something to cheer me up.  So, let me share with you the photos from a lovely day in Oxford last Friday, when my son finally decided to put in an application for a college place.

Please send a cheque payable to The Dorset Writers’ Network to Pat Yonwin, 8 The Orchard, Winfrith Newburgh, Dorset DT2 852117 and include your details (name, telephone number and email address).
