Is it really Monday again?

Happy Monday!  Halfway through June, nearly halfway through the year.  How is that even possible?  All I know is that I’m currently living on the surface of the sun it’s so darn hot here.  But that’s the desert for you, right?

Reminders:

1. Flash Challenge!  Your flash challenge prompt is: sunshine.  Give me 100 words or a graphic and I’ll reward you with my undying love and admiration. 

2. Last week’s challenges:

Word of the day
Weekend Challenge
Thursday Tropes
A to Z
Numbers

3. Big Buddy is at 47%.  How are you doing?  I’m better than I was last month, but still behind. *sigh*  Story of my life lately, hah!

Rainy Days and Mondays- one more time for 2021!

I fell down on the job last week, so below are two, yes two, angsty prompts for your Monday. This also marks the end of Rainy Days and Mondays for 2021- hope you've found some inspiration for creativity in these posts! Next week, the calendar flips to.... Torrid Tuesdays!

This week's prompts:

1- And on top of everything else it started to rain- because of course it did.

2- Can we just say 'mistakes were made' and leave it at that?

Passing the torch to Dreamy!

A (relatively) successful day. I was meant to write a smutty chapter which turned into a bit of a tease, but at least it was written. Epilogue to another fic which I wasn't extremely happy with but at least it's over. And I'm up to date with the drabble/icon challenge here up to 14th so am very happy with that!

So, just over 3000 words and two banners and I'm handing the challenge over to Dreamy!
