A story…

for Sadje’s What Do You See? prompt





Tilly was tickled pink when I said she could do some painting. And not just pink, green and blue and yellow too!

I was only gone for a moment or two,  but in that short time, she changed my stylishly subdued decor into a technicolour melee! It took me a while to spot her, she blended in so well!

Do you know what? I actually began to like it. A new me, a new image, a new… everything!

We spent a while adding some finishing touches, she the lower bits, me the upper regions, and then the transformation was complete. As an added bonus, my formally formal attire was now a multicoloured mish-mash, and I liked that too!

We did that slap-clap link-little-fingers thing that kids do then we admired our work. 

Only one problem, the wife was due home any minute.

You don’t want to know what happened next.

    I have been noticing you have your stories written almost before the prompt appears leading me to believe you have inside information about the picture.

    Hi Keith – I can’t imagine … and the perpetrator isn’t of an age to do much. I think sitting down having a bottle of wine, perhaps a take out … then collapsing overnight and think about redecorating – the perpetrator’s colour scheme will no doubt wash off in the shower. The image prompt is brilliant – in more than one way! Cheers Hilary

    What can a loving grandma do but laugh at the fun and love shared by her husband and their sweet little granddaughter? It will all come out in the wash … all except the memories!

    I’m sure she was delighted with the new decor. A lovely story Keith. Thanks for joining in.
