Time Management

– You really should start work, it’s twelve minutes past nine.

“I’m very well aware of the time, thank you very much. It’s just that, well, I was going to finish my coffee before I start really working.”

– You won’t though, will you? The dregs of your coffee are already stone-cold. You’ve had it since eight thirty. When you finish it, or realise you don’t want to finish it because it’s too cold and ‘bitty’, you’ll just end up getting out of your seat and making tea.

“Why do you keep writing the time like that?”

– Hush. Are you going to start work now or not? It’s thirteen past nine, now.

“You’re weird.”

– I’m weird? You should check yourself before you wreck…

“Don’t say that. You sound like a complete penis when you say that. Besides, I’m just about to start work. Right………. nnnn…….”

– For crying out loud. At least open Word, or Excel, or perhaps the website you’re supposed to be working on. At least look busy.”

“I am busy. I’m planning.”

– Planning what? It certainly isn’t your day.

“Stuff. I’m planning stuff.”

– You’re planning on going to the toilet aren’t you? You’re planning on wasting another five minutes by walking downstairs and draining the so-called lizard. Pfftt. More like pinching the worm.

“I wasn’t.”

– But?

“But I am now.”

– I despair.

“I hate you.”

– I know.

Frozen in time

See the problem with being frozen in time is that even when you want to call out, you can’t.

According to the newspaper I saw being read yesterday in front of the shop, it’s now 2013.
57 long, lonely years since my wedding day and not once have I complained about this whole “being frozen in time” thing.

I’ve never shown bitterness, or anger. Never screamed out at the fact that I’ve missed my Percy every day since, nor complained when I’ve been moved from pillar to post, but right now, all I want to do is call his name.



Submitted as part of Friday Fictioneers in response the photo attached below. It’s a lot of fun trying to hit that 100 word mark. why not give it a go!

End of all time

If tomorrow really is the end of the world, I just want to say I’ll have no regrets. Not proper ones, anyway.

Ok, maybe one.

or two.

Some. Maybe some regrets, but overall definitely no regrets.

Oh except that thing with… hmm, yeah I probably shouldn’t have done that.

But on the whole, no regrets.

With any luck tomorrow is just end of work for a bit and we won’t all be swimming in a pool of dark nothingness with only our thoughts as company for the rest of all time.

Enjoy the last day of school, kids.

Coffee rings and lipstick

Coffee rings and lipstick.
Time goes by
too quick

Music from a squeezebox.
Trains & scarves
with polkadots

Hand in hand.
Hands in gloves.
Special mugs & longing hugs.

Coffee rings and lipstick.
Take some time.
Take a sip.
