My ghoulish kids

This is what my kids have been up to today.
Mr Artist visited a cemetery with his writing club and wrote this. Isn't it great?

I walked through the desolate grave stones. All their heads poking out above the ground like moles. To be fair it was probably the most freaky thing I’ve ever seen.

That’s when I saw her. She walked silently behind the trees dragging one mangled leg. As she walked she let out tiny moans with each step. I felt kind of sorry for her.

I waited behind a gravestone as she waddled towards me. I looked at her lifeless face and her shallow white eyes. She walked right past my giant gravestone hideaway and stood facing an open coffin. She slowly proceeded to climb in, muttering under her breath "Five more minutes."

Mr Actor spent the afternoon inventing fake blood and cuts with red food colouring and tissue to prank his brother. And not doing too bad a job at it either!

Ah, I'm a proud Mum!
Til next time, keep on creating...just like my kids :-)

If a topic has special significance for you, or touches you in some way, I'd love to hear your story! I will return the favour and we will gently touch hands across the miles...or kilometres :-)
