The White Lace Umbrella

The White Lace Umbrella


Before I started this blog I never realised how difficult it would be to record a short story. I think I tried at least twenty times to get this particular track down so if you notice any mistakes I don’t want to know! I hope the next one won’t take so long.

I wrote this little story quite some time ago and it’s been edited, altered, chopped and there are several ‘final’ versions on my desktop.   I’ve read it so many times now I think I know it off by heart.

Punting on the river has been an activity enjoyed by many during their Oxbridge university days…

Anyone know the name of the river that flows through Oxford? I know now but I had to ‘google’ it.

    Thanks to my son Wills, for letting me know there was a blip in the recording. I have corrected it but I need to get the levels right for the next recording. It’s all a steep learning curve!

    Really enjoyed this! The music was perfect for the story, was that the inspiration? Had to listen again straight off. I do like a spooky tale!

      Glad you enjoyed it…hope you listened to edited version without the blip in the middle!! No the music wasn’t the inspiration…I have found lots of short tracks that are royalty free so listen until I find something that fits.
