In her head she...

dreams and schemes...
designs of the finer kind.


I'm proud to call her my friend.

Tears hung in my eyes like mini meniscus
as I looked and looked at this sweet latest make.
Picking up the phone I dialled; valiantly
keeping the quiver out of my voice...

'Please can I buy?'

'They're  sold, sorry!'

Before she had time to say...

'I'll make you one.'

My bottom lip dimpled and quivered
and I'm ashamed to say I cried.


This is what on Valentine's morning the
postie delivered.

No not a card from a secret admirer,
but something far, far, far more
valuable...

The badge of the worth of a 
true friend...

    1. If I didn't love her so much , my only-child, green envy eyes would flash... just how can one person have so much talent?

    1. If I wore all of Viv's lovely brooches at one time, my bosom wouldn't get a look in... not a bad thing some might say!
