Well, after a month of being away from HDH I’m back at last and raring to go. I hope everyone is well and enjoying some lovely spring sunshine as we are in the UK….at least in my part of it. 😃
I’ve been doing the A-Z challenge over April and it was fun and definitely challenging.

Oh, and its a giveaway week, so I’ll be giving away a £5 Amazon voucher for one commenter. Or, if you prefer…an iPad/iPhone/iPod app’ to the same value.
I can still remember the feel of the hot pavement beneath my bare feet and how the grains of sand stuck to the grubby soles and between my toes; and the tingle of my sun burnt face and arms from a long day playing in the August heat.

‘Yer mam’s gonna clout yer when she sees that,Stevie’. Ellis’s voice was filled with a kind of horrified awe as he stared again at the long, jagged tear in my trousers.
‘Aye, ah bloody well know’, I said, annoyed with myself for being so clumsy and with Ellis for reminding me of the punishment I’d surely receive when I got home. My mother was a dab hand at drawing sparks from my bum.
