Mother's Day

Woke up to find these on the kitchen bench this morning.... now I know what all the creeping about at 2am this morning was all about... Flowers are my very favourite gift to receive, especially ones like these from my son. Still smiling several hours later.

Friday Fill-ins #123

Something to start the weekend with..... Discovered this site the other day and this is my first contribution. Every Friday there's a new set of cloze exercises, which must appeal to the teacher in me, and you just have to fill them in. No prizes, just a lot of fun reading everyone-else's options.

1. Apples are to oranges as
silence is to loneliness.

2. All cats should be black and that's all I have to say about that.

3. I think I hear the smoke alarm from the kitchen which means my dinner is burning!!

4. I surrender, here's my white flag.

5. Do what you want to do, but just let me finish this chapter.

6. First there was a runaway chef and behind him was a Radio Flyer wagon; in the wagon was a bucket filled with potatoes.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to bed, tomorrow my plans include sleeping in and Sunday, I want to stay in bed!
