Untidy Slate


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Clean Slate.”

The person who lives in my bedroom has no regard for tidiness. Beside the bed is a little lamb standing on top of a gift box. With a tub of authentic African ointment promising to cure any dry or burnt skin ailment next to it. There is also a decorative wooden stand declaring proudly “Mum – a mother’s love is forever”, adorned lovingly with gemstones in front of it, placed there by a loving daughter.
A pile of half-read books stands guard. Consisting of a collection of poetry books, inspirational, short stories, autobiographies and two Maeve Binchies. They all have bookmarks marking the last page read.
And right in the middle of the room is the most comfortable bed ever. It is not too soft nor too hard, but just right!

Good night xx

      1. Hubby stays awake watching tour de France and then wakes me up when he comes to bed at 1:30am. Then I lie awake listening to him sleep for the rest of the night. It’s been happening the whole week!
