Day Eight

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
top dollar

Due to inflation the Zimbabwean dollar was pretty worthless and the favoured currency was the US dollar. When I was visiting Zim in 2000 the hawkers were happy to take anything for a sale other than the Zim dollar. Including my rather worthless watch!

The Zimbawean is an English-speaking free newspaper. Since it was established in 2005 The Zimbabwean (TZ) has been a torch-bearer in the face of overwhelming state propaganda and a news blackout on state-sponsored terrorism, corruption and human rights abuses. Its strapline is A Voice for the Voiceless

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

      1. You’ll find it in a forgotten purse. I did exactly hat the other day, was very excited for a moment until I realised they were all from places I am unlikely to visit for years – NZ dollars, Aus dollars and even Fiji coins!
