I know I haven’t been posting often but I thought it would be nice to have a bit of fun and share something that demonstrates my love of music…

For me at least music has always been the ‘friend’ you turn to when no-one else is around to share your joy, or pain, I’m sure many of you can relate to that sentiment?

Hope you enjoy it and if you feel like it why not play along and do your own post with the list!? Continue reading

This prompt was actually from a couple of weeks back now (I had already got a number of posts scheduled for my blog and couldn’t fit this post in until today).

Any how, here’s my latest piece of flash fiction – I wonder if this will be another ‘creepy’ one ;) hehe
