Week 13

This is a writing Meme , we have a few words and can add upto 100 more to create a story.
Enjoy  and please ppe over to see Jenny and other peoples offerings . The purple is our starter

"That's why it meant so much” I shouted down the phone


“ It might only be a stuffed toy to you “ I added

“But to my son it means that A he is happy and feels secure and B We all get a good nights sleep.” I retorted after the lost property person said “It's only a toy”



I was really upset not because Theo had lost his rabbit but because it was the last gift his grandmother gave him before she died. And we had left it on the flight home after the funeral.

I'm with you on this - my 22 year old still has an elephant that he takes places! When he was a child he left her at his grandparents in Newcastle - but they were down with us for a fortnight so couldn't even post her back!

Nicely done Tracy. I think most of us get this on a gut level. Every kid has at least one of these. I still have a few my grandmother made for me when I was a kid.

Nicely done Tracy. I really enjoyed this, and as a Mother and a Grandmother I can so relate to what you wrote here.

Thank you for linking.
