“I’m out!” she shouted from the doorway, as she hitched her massive handbag up on her shoulder, opened the door and pulled her sunglasses down from on top of her head.

For The Daily Post’s Writing Course :  Finding Everyday Inspiration. Today, we’re tasked to write a post based on a One-Word Inspiration.

For The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Partners. This photo was taken in Amsterdam when I visited Lucile on King’s Day.

My Week on Instagram

Hmmnnnnn, interesting. Instagram really shows what’s going on in my day-to-day.  It was a cold weekend of catching up with friends, and a really cold week of desperate early morning coffees, dinner with colleagues and rain, lots of rain! This last image is a black and white one that I posted on Sunday and then…
