My Memoir

cloud from a sad day

Ernest Hemming allegedly was once challenged to write a 6 word story... which was

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

 Gripping innit??

Whislt sipping a warm beer and nibbling on shortbread the other night I was watching the Jimmy Falon show, one of his guests was talking about the 6 word memoir. The challenge was to come up with 6 words that described your whole life. Imagine.. 6 words to sum up who you are and all that you have done.

Today as I was humming away to the sound of my sewing machine it came to me.. I thought about all the things I've done.. seen.. the people I've known.. If I sat wondering about that for long enough I would need another lifetime since there seems to be soo much to think about.

There have been so many amazing people in my life.

SO much love given and received.
summer chives... mmmm...

More laughs than stars in the sky....

my first time in liverpool

Alot of tears some in happiness others in sadness....

.... defiantly have had things I have had to work for.. and work in general.. ..some more rewarding than others.

my dog. 

Creative spurts which have amazed me, my friends and family.

I still can feel this summer heat... 

My heart bursts when I think of all the "amazing-ness" my life has contained so far.

So.. my six word memoir.. which shall double as my tombstone inscription. is...

" I lived,played,crafted, loved hard."

What would yours be?
