#BlogFlash2012: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts: #23 – Cooking

This month Mr B and I are taking part in #BlogFlash2012, run by Terri Giuliano Long, and – every Friday – #FlashFiveFriday at The Indie Exchange.

The idea behind #BlogFlash2012 is simple: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts. Every day there’s a new visual prompt and you have to produce 50-100 words on the theme. The beauty of it is, you can produce anything from a simple anecdote to a piece of flash fiction.

There’s also a Facebook page so you can follow along and swap links.

I am also taking part in NaBloPoMo August.

It’s not that I don’t want to learn how to cook better. I’ve just never been particularly good at it and after thirty years of survival that probably won’t change anytime soon.

Gosh, I’m hungry!

Change is – sadly – not always sweet but sometimes what arises from those changes can be. There are things in my life that were unpleasant – just as there are things in everyone’s lives that are so. They have led me to a ‘sweet’ place. So perhaps he was right…
