    American supermarkets also use the term 'rain check'. If they run out of a special offer that has been advertised, they give you a ticket, 'a rain check' to enable you to buy the product at the offer price when the next stock comes in. Great Blog ...

    a moving piece Prop - sniff sniff. You do write these short pieces so well. Maybe you should make an anthology of your 'lighter' pieces. I know I'd buy one. Check you've ticked the box saying others can comment. :-)

About

I am housebound due to ME/Chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and Chrones disease. Consequently, I have to rest for a large portion of the day, I also have to have 'activity periods' between the rest. For years, I have been filling these up with, reading, watching TV etc. Two years ago, I dragged myself into the twenty first century and bought a computer that was internet ready. (My previous computer was twenty years old, need I say more). This proved to be quite a turning point in my life. Suddenly, I had the world at my doorstep. I now am less isolated and have contact with the outside world again. Making friends on sites like this has been wonderful for me. Once I had the computer, I decided to have a go at writing the book that has been in my head for years. Once I started writing, I couldn't stop. I enjoy it so much. I would never have dreamt it would give me so much pleasure and satisfaction. I love this site, reading others work and critiques. I have learned so much, and I really enjoy conversing with like minded people. I have had a tiny article (and I mean tiny), published in a magazine, and I have just finished a creative writing course with the Open University. Well, that's me in a nutshell. If I haven't spoken to you, please come and speak to me. I don't bite, honest. Since writing this, I have completed all the Open University modules and I am the proud owner of the Diploma of Creative Writing and Literature, and am one module away from a BAhons.

    Weenilicious, I seem to have missed your birthday. A million apologies and hope it was fandabidoobilous. Have another birthday on me, but my kind of birthday when the calendar doesn't flip over by another year. Cheers, m'dear.
