Weird

I was about to say that the weirdest thing happened to me today but that's probably not accurate but it was certainly pretty weird. As some of you may know I work in a charity shop and I was there today, minding my own business, looking at an audit roll and working out the chances of making target this week when a woman came up to me and said, "Didn't I see something you'd written in Prima magazine recently?" I said that I had and she said that she'd enjoyed it.
How chuffed was I? Very.

How lovely! You're famous, Colette!

David said...

That is so lovely. Your writing had obviously really stayed with her. Well done you Colette!

Joanne - it did give me a lovely feeling.
Amanda - maybe but only as a single cell amoeba in a very large pond. But a cell is a cell.
David - I would like to think so.
Thanks you lot- you're pals.

I remember reading that piece - it was beautifully written and incredibly moving. I'm not surprised she approached you.

Thanks Suzanne. The sad part is that it was all true.
