Teresa’s challenge for 11th July
Today’s things are: admire, loyal, fireplace
When I think of a fireplace, I see one of those ornate surrounds in a huge room, the centrepiece for all to admire as soon as they walk in.
We had a mantlepiece in the council house where I was born, which is similar, but not quite so grand, and Dad had a little mouse with its bed at one end and food at the other.
That mouse was loyal to Dad and never tried to run away. Guess he knew when he was well off.
