Weekly Photo Prompt: House

Welcome to my weekly photo prompt!  Every Monday I will share a photo which I like, and taking it as a starting point, I’ll endeavour to come up with a piece of creative writing.  This might be a 100 word story, a poem, haiku, limerick or long piece – I’m not setting any rules apart from committing to a regular writing challenge to exercise my brain.  If you like the image I’ve shared, please feel free to use it as a prompt for your own work, give me a pingback and I promise to read and give my feedback.

Bye Bye Bott Bott!

Interesting – and very brave to admit to doing Gina Ford, people who don’t like her tend to be really vitriolic about not liking her! I couldn’t stick her routines but found that if we were having baby melt downs at certain times of day, doing whatever GF said we should be doing at that time always seemed to do the trick. And her potty training book is brilliant, I swear by it!
