Here is this week's picture prompt
The competition is only open for 12 hours and the word count this week is 100 words exactly - ooooh I like this sort of challenge...
Here's my picnic story
“Couldn’t you find a better spot, we look like a band of refugees sitting by this swamp.”
Aunt Cissy had a point; this wasn’t a picnic to rival the calibre of the Pilkington-Smyth set.
The afternoon only deteriorated when young Emily decided to go swimming fully clothed in her Sunday best.
Aunt Cissy promptly fainted in dramatic fashion.
While I reached for the smelling salts our chaperone, John, rescued Emily with aplomb.
As he emerged dripping from the pool he looked straight at me and smiled.
From that moment I knew I wouldn’t end up a spinster like Aunt Ciss!
