orphans

There are so many tragedies across the world that leave young orphans to fend for themselves. Being orphaned is catastrophic. It is bad enough losing parents as an adult.

starlit

What a beautiful sight on a summer evening in Africa to be miles from any lights and in the midst of nature at it’s best and look up into a starlit sky

cinema

I used to love going to the cinema when I was younger. We were there all the time and the really late shows were always such fun. No popcorn but a lovely tube of ice-cream. Not quite the same now.

unkempt

As Jane walked to work everyday she couldn’t help wondering about the man with the unkempt appearance sitting on the bench by the park. Who was he and why did he sit there.

progressive

She was suffering badly with arthritis. She’s had it many years and didn’t expect it to improve. Such a painful, progressive illness.

dissect

One thing I didn’t do in biology at school was have to dissect animals. Can’t say I’m too unhappy about that.

struggle

Sometimes she was so anxious and depressed. Any little symptom was of major concern. She was sure she it was all in her mind but nevertheless it was a continuous struggle to keep on top of her emotions.

clasp

He bought her a beautiful necklace for her birthday. She couldn’t wait to wear it and show it off when her took her out for dinner. It wasn’t until they reached the car that she realised she had lost it. Did she secure the clasp properly?

unplanned

She was only fifteen. Her boyfriend was a little bit older. No one understood when they said they were in love. Her parents were so angry about the unplanned pregnancy that she was forced in to having an abortion.

The visit was unexpected.

He threw open the door like it was nobody’s business, not like he left me and his kid two years ago to this day. Something tells me it was unplanned.

Josh would hear it, I was sure of that. He’d come down stairs and freeze, knowing in a heartbeat who this intruder is.

doubled

He started off as a sales assistant and gradually worked his way up the ladder. After he had been there a few years his salary had doubled.

apprehend

When I was young I wanted to be a policewoman unfortunately I was too short although it doesn’t make a difference now. Maybe they thought I was too small to apprehend criminals.

plausible

He didn’t really know if it was a deliberate thought on her part but the excuse she gave him for not turning up was plausible.

Not sure what ‘taffy’ is. Maybe some kind of toffee! Or someone from Wales. Maybe I’ll google it……….

stencil

When I was young I loved to use stencils. Not much use for them now though unless with my grandchildren. However I am sure there are other uses for stencils in architecture and dressmaking etc

disco

Oh to be young again and be able to spend more than five minutes disco dancing. Maybe it’s time to take up ballroom dancing instead.

She was a gorgeous little girl. Everyone who met her simply adored her and she would always greet you with such a beaming smile.

She was a happy lady. She worked hard, was a great mum and loved to bake cakes. She was very popular and would always strive to succeed in everything she did.

She was speaking to her friend after making a hospital visit. When talking about her husband who was the patient she completely understood her sentiment.

firearm

He was just an ordinary policeman and that’s how he wanted it to stay. The bobby on the beat who knows everyone in the village not the policeman in a flak jacket and carrying a firearm.

I can’t think of anything……. nothing of biblical proportions. I’m not really very biblical although my in-laws were…………….

harm

Her children were so young. It was difficult being a new parent again and worrying about them so much. She was really concerned that no harm should come to them.

counted

He was having a bad time at work. No matter what he did he couldn’t get off to sleep. His mind was working overtime. He tried various remedies and at one stage counted sheep.

orders

She kept placing orders and giving orders to everyone else in the office. She was so unpopular she was given her marching orders!

Unfortunately Super trooper springs to mind first. Although some can be a real trooper. Brain not working now.

sill

I was watching the great tit perched on the window sill. He was so pretty and seemed to acknowledge me.

hijacked

He felt the plane suddenly drop, maybe just turbulence. A strange voice shouting, not the pilot, we were being hijacked.

bourbon

mmm – what can I say here. A nice glass of bourbon in a swanky bar in New York or a bourbon biscuit with a cup of tea at home….
