A Sordid Tale




This is a sordid tale. One of woe and yore, and all other old-fashioned sounding words that one does not bother with these days. But one should, shouldn't one?



And that is what leads me to this dastardly tale that will leave you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you with your nails chewed down to the quick. You'll be sitting on the edge of your caboose, spellbound. Gobsmacked.



I have a ribbon drawer. Yes. It is true, dear reader. I do have a ribbon drawer. In which I store... ribbon.



I put the ribbon in the drawer nice and tidy-like, just like any side-saddle horseriding woman would do.



And yet, when I come back out the next day, the ribbon is in a state of dissarray.



It's a true story. Not a long story. It's a perilous story. Not a scary story. But it's a story of truth, and gore, and I just know, you'll be sitting there right now with a dropped jaw, wondering just who unravelled all that ribbon?


PS - please vote for me in the Kidspot Top Fiddy Bloggers. I'll love you long time.

Just found you in anz's 'inspired' magazine. If it wasn't for Maggie Beer on the cover it may have gone straight from the mailbox to the bin... but I'm pleased I read it because I've discovered a few lovely new blogs like yours! gxo

Done. personally it's owning and using the ribbon that is important not it's neatness but I have to say that because my baskets are never neat and it would be impossible for me to keep a drawer neat. Cherrie
