TAKE A WORD


IN HOT WATER

This week we have FANTASY as our word for inspiration at Take A Word and that reminded me of something strange that happened just last week.  I had filled the bowl with hot soapy water in preparation for washing up the dishes when I was distracted for a moment by the telephone.   As I turned back to the task in hand I saw my breakfast cup float by, and here's the strange bit, sitting inside the cup was a fairy princess holding onto a handful of the most astonishing balloons I have ever seen in my life.!

Thank you for looking.
