The word prompt from Sheryl: Frustration
What is frustration?
Trying to have your lunch when friends drop over
Trying to have a drink when someone comes along who is argumentative
Trying to have a bath when someone drops in
Your Mum washing your face in public
Getting that fabulous photo of a bird and all you end up with is a branch
Featured Photo: Missed again

The Tuesday Photo Challenge from Frank at Dutch goes the Photo: Comfort
No matter what is going on, Mum is always there to comfort. A kiss of appreciation goes a long way.
The Ragtag Saturday word prompt: Fabulist
What I love about a lot of photo challenges (or writing stories, poems etc) is the words that I have never heard of that suddenly set my mind to a photo. What is a Fabulist you ask?
- a person who composes or relates fables.
- a liar, especially a person who invents elaborate, dishonest stories.
Can I have a photo that conveys a story for the word?
What? Who? Me? I’m not doing anything. I won’t eat your shrub. I am just stretching my arm. Perhaps practicing my moves for playing Double Bass in the forest orchestra. Go on Joey, you tell him, I am a good Mum.
The word prompt from Laura: Hush
“Hush now and sit still.” “You have to look your best.”
“But Mum, I washed there this morning.”
“Hush my baby.” “There’s a bloke with a camera going to take your photo.”
“Ow Mum, I don’t need washing under there all the time.”
“Look, we just look lovely now don’t we?”
The Aussie version

The Daily Post word Prompt: Peek
Usually from the front of my house, either on the verandah or from kitchen window, I am able to get a few photos of Red-necked Wallabies grazing and hopping around my garden. Quite often there is someone taking a peek.
The range of Wallabies. A female and a young one in front with a Male at the back and a Joey peeking out from behind a tree
Always on guard
No matter how you are in the pouch, there’s always time to peek out.
“Hey Mum, what’s the bloke over there doing?”
A quick peek to see what’s going on
“What’s going on? Don’t make me come in there!”
The Joey was thinking of coming out for a hop around.
“Hey Mum, is there anything left for lunch?”
“So, have you got the kettle on?”
One Word Sunday A photo challenge from Debbie at Travel With Intent
An encounter with the Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey in my garden.
“Now stand still and upright”
“Let’s see, you have to look your best”
“Awww Mum…do you have to”
“Hold still….I’ve just got to get under your chin”
“There you go…..it wasn’t that bad, was it?”
The one word prompt from the Daily Post: Tender
What could be more tender than the love of a mother and her baby or in this case the love of a Red-necked Wallaby and her Joey. This encounter was in my garden.
“Hey Mum, I have an itch I can’t reach.”
“Here, I’ll take care of that darned itch.”
“Is that better?”
