Magpie 274



She was brooding upstairs in her bedroom,
Abandoned, depressed and alone,
But was roused by her mum
Shouting "hurry, dear! Come!
For here's Ivy for you, on the phone!"


(With thanks to Tess at Magpiel Tales for the picture)

  1. I always snigger at these.
    Fancy recognising the Ivy I can barely remember phones that look like this.

  7. Love it - but I keep meaning to ask. What does Magpie mean in this context each time you post one?

    1. Rosemary, it's a wonderful way to waste time on a Sunday. Every week, Tess at Magpie Tales blogspot (easy to find) provideds a picture, and you're invited to write a piece for it. You then link your offering back to her blog. It's qutie fun, but usually I should be doing somehting eolse!
