Me Time

The fella’s taken the little one out. For a precious few hours, I’m free to pretend I don’t have responsibilities. I wish I’d appreciated those lazy Saturday mornings when it seemed I’d never run out of them.

What am I going to do with myself? Read in bed? Catch up on sleep?

I stretch. I fancy a novel and a cuppa.

I sit down, waiting for the kettle to boil. The cat comes out of hiding and jumps into my lap.

‘Hey, it’s me time.’

The cat yawns, curls up and goes to sleep. For cats, it’s always me time.


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Me Time.”

Top 3 Stories – February 2015

Narrowing down the list to three stories turned out to be much harder than I’d imagined. When I first came up with the idea of a Top X list, I wanted to make it the Top 5. But then I wavered: What if I didn’t write five stories in a month I’d consider worthy of going on the list? Now I wish I’d have gone for five stories every month… But enough of me agonising.

These are my favourite February stories. What do you reckon – did I get it right? Did I miss a story you think should have been on the list?

  1. All About Patience
  2. Hitting ’em Hard
  3. The Lion Tamer’s Daughter
