    She thinks she’s the bee’s knees, the cat’s whiskers. How she can stand there and say that God only knows. What a woman!

  • lorraine commented on the post, costume 9 years ago

    My job reminds me of a costume drama. I work on an old estate. It’s like a modern day version of Upstairs Downstairs.

    On the tablewas a bottle of vintage champagne. She knew it was vintage, she’d seen the label before. She’d sold one in the restaurant weeks ago now for a thousand pounds.

  • lorraine commented on the post, sunlight 9 years ago

    Sunlight splashed through the window, spread across the floor. I stretched and got up out of bed. Time to think about work again.

  • lorraine commented on the post, chatter 9 years ago

  • lorraine commented on the post, grown 9 years ago

    When I grew up I wished I could still be young. I’d spent ten years wishing to be older. How I wish I could wind back the clock now.

  • lorraine commented on the post, tallest 9 years ago

    Tall stories, jokes, lies, whatever you want to call them. All imaginative ideas or complete rubbish? You decide.

  • lorraine commented on the post, walk 9 years ago

    A walk in the park on a summer’s day was just what the doctor ordered. How could she resist? One handsome companion and an ice cream – heaven.
