Lily's Friday Prediction

I've spent the morning so far explaining to my daughter about the Goddess Eostra, how the Easter Bunny is really a hare and the egg represents rebirth in older religions. She thinks I'm a "silly Mummy". Ho hum. Up to her.

I am SO glad it's Friday. I was expecting a hell of a week - but it all worked out really well. However, I am emotionally shattered and desperate to spend time out in the glorious sunshine - my skin is as grey and peely-wally as can be.

But that is neither here nor there, for there are words to discuss!

Firstly, congratulations to Mimi for winning last week's Prediction challenge with the splendid Last In Line. I can't get the imagery out of my head. And well done too to runners-up Chris and Reba with Ma petite homunculus and Patterns. All entries were outstanding.

This week's words are interesting...

  • Spike
