Helen Yendell is running another of her fun competitions. Your task is to write a 100 word story incoporating the words provided. There's a £25 Amazon voucher prize.
The competition is to celebrate the release of Helen's new short story collection, The Sunshine Board.
Talking of sunshine, I'm enjoying a few days in the company of one of my brilliant writing friends and her talented artist husband (a certain marvellous photographer is with us too).
