I have to say a HUGE apology for my lack of attention to this wonderful weekly happening. Life has been manic (please read this apology too!) Let me expalin. As you may know that I am running a 100 Word Challenge over on the Head’s Office for children to write creative pieces in 100 words. It is very popluar with lots of entries & next week we are going to run a Special 100 WC to support Save the Children in their Pass it on Campaign. So life has been busy.

Anyway enough of the sorrys – here is my entry for this week’s Centus. As suaul, the prompt is in blue

‘You’re nothing like your mother. You are beautiful & I love you.’
