Look at me – turning up on time on a Friday!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here in my foggy corner of the UK. Tonight, I’ve been swinging around my kitchen to the dulcet tones of Frank Sinatra whilst cooking up a little non-festive feast. I think if I actually got around to putting up the tree I might find a teeny weeny bit of Christmas spirit was hiding in the musty boxes I open!

I might try that tomorrow.

Anyway, since it’s Friday and I am actually here (see the fiasco of the previous challenge if you missed it!) I thought I would close of this week’s Six Word Story Challenge. I left the prompt of EXCESS last Friday. It always hits me at this time of year just how lucky my family and I are, both my husband and I have well paid jobs, we have a warm comfortable home and want for nothing. This is in such stark contrast to those we see in the media in dire situations across the world, it makes me so sad that we are unable to do anything other than donate food, items and funds to help. But we do it anyway, hoping it will make a difference to someone, somewhere.

This train of thought is what prompted my story: The burden of wealth weighed heavy. We are not what the Western world would consider wealthy, but to so many people, what we have would be considered a blessing – including me.

So to this week’s winners:


First place:

The Poetry Channel with his story ‘Perhaps he loved her too much.’

Second place:

julesaprilkitty with her story ‘The mansion had many unused rooms.’

Third place:

Marshall at Sharing God’s Story ( with his story ‘Needs, wants, enough! Bounty to give!’

Congratulations to all of last week’s winners. As usual, please feel free to download and use one of the below badges on you blog.

Until next time,
