We are back from deepest Devon with our bucket and spade, as well as half a beach worth of finest Paignton sand which seems to have made the journey back with us and keeps turning up in unexpected places like inside our socks. We will tell you all about our adventures in the English Riviera (they've got Palm Trees and everything, man!) in due course- but in the meantime, how about I send you over to Troubled Diva, where there is a game of Consequences going on. The idea (blatantly nicked from the original, which started here) is that the last sentence of one post forms the first sentence of the next, which will be written by a different person. Here is my first offering (out of a maximum of two during the lifetime of the game which is going on until the end of July). It is about... oh, I see, you've all gone. Come back in a while, y'all. and I'll show you my holiday snaps!
