55 Flash Fiction - The Party Surprise

A Mother must make sacrifices for her children.

So another Saturday afternoon is swallowed whole

by a birthday party for short noisy people.

Greetings made coats deposited in the ubiquitous heap

on the bed. I am offered a drink (will it be coffee or

orange juice).” Whisky and coke! That will do

nicely,” I smile.

I miss birthday parties for noisy little folks! It's been a quarter of a century since I've had kids of the age who would allow me to attend one.

I have a friend my age with two daughters the ages of my sons, 30 and 28 and then 2nd time round he has twin daughters of 3, so I'm still doing the ankle nippers party scene... I love it.

I went to Israel for my grandson's 1st last year, but wasn't there for his 2nd... boo hoo

treasure and cherish them while they're still little and innocent, they grow up too too fast.

lotsa luv ann xxxx

If I were the party host, I would've made you work even harder for that Whiskey and Coke. Where is it? Oh, we must find it. Is there a bottle in the pinata? Nope. Buried under the coats? I know, let's hunt for it, just as if it were an Easter Egg!

BY the way, "Your Cooking Instructions Explained" would make a great addition to our list of "guest posts."
