There was a fantastic atmosphere in our local town today.  There was a  carnival just before lunch, followed by the England-USA match.  Everyone was ebullient; adults as well as kids were painted and dressed up.  The weather was good too.  When we got back to the village there was a cricket match on the green!  It was a bloody marvellous day to be in England today.

On a different note: we went round to my mother-in-law’s.  One of her vacuum cleaners has stopped working.  My hubby opened it up and found the bag wasn’t fitted properly and the dust has collected in the space there.  So, it was duly emptied and he brought out the small hand-held vacuum to suck up the remaining dust.  The hand-held wasn’t working either.  So, he opened that up – yes, you’ve guessed it, same story.  Boxes withing boxes….  It was hard not to laugh!  Good old-fashioned dustpan and brush came to the rescue.  Can technology become so advanced it becomes stupid?


About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
