Well done! The next month's contest is around the corner ;)
*bangs drums to prevent hibernation*

Hahaha! @ScarletBea I’ll have a read and vote on last months stories, should keep me out of hibernation until the next competition is announced
It's the silence that scares me. It’s the blank page on which I can write my own fears.

The busy days are (hopefully) over, my trip in to Amsterdam is over and the next month is arround the corner. I can´t wait for it. I hope this month gets one or two entries more hopefully, it is always nice to read the submissions of the others.

First draft done! I'll tidy it up later and get it submitted but just so you know, it's coming.

I'm hoping to get something finished by the end of tomorrow but it's a bit of a struggle and I'm not that happy with what I've been working on so far.  So, well see how far I get.

You don't have to rush to finish today, you can have an extra day or two :)

@Lanko spoiled me, even though he hasn't entered in a LONG time - yes, this is a direct indirect comment :P 8)

Got my story together in the end. I may have strayed away from the brief a little, but hopefully people enjoy it.

I honestly thought I would end up having to abandon mine for the month but finally figured a couple of things out so got something done on time (I don't like having to use extra days - definite deadlines seem to help me at times).

I didn't want to ask this earlier, but @Jenny HJ , I'm not sure if you are english? Do you know what the HMRC is in real life, and your story is a joke on that?
