Whirlwinds blow across
The earth‘s haggard surfaces
Suffer silently

A whirlwind romance
Entwined with passion-filled nights
Feeling the earth move

#SoCS Sept. 23/17 – Hot/Cold

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hot/cold.” Use one, use both, bonus points if you start your post with one and end with the other. Enjoy!

Cold feet are something I really cannot abide!

When it gets to the winter months I am the one with the socks on constantly, and at night I need my hot water bottle, regardless of what anyone else says!

Woe betide, Hubby Dearest if he gets in and rests his cold feet against my legs!

The kids are like me too. They crave the heat of a rubber bottle full of hot water in their beds to warm it before slipping under the covers at night.

But equally, when it comes to the heat of the summer (Shush, I know I live in England, the land of the rainy summer, but we do have heat here on occasion!) I find I cannot get on with the hot weather!

I literally melt!

Seriously, I am not kidding!

It’s why I was happy to get married in November because, in the heat, makeup slips off me. At least I knew I would continue to look relatively graceful for the day, rather than a clown with mascara and eyeliner running down my face!

And cold feet are not something I worry about in the summer either because I go from ice block to furnace!

For me, my footwear of choice in the summer months would be Fitflops because my feet end up radiating heat and I end up flustered and hot!

WRITESPIRATION #133 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 38 – That Weird Kid

Sacha’s back with yet another #Writespiration prompt!

writespiration-2017

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

This week I want you to write about the weird kid at school…

Oh, Sacha…I have so many weird kids I encounter at school, what a catalogue of memories I have to look back upon!

Here’s one celebrating weirdness, and showing not all weird kids are necessarily unable to accomplish goals in life.

The arena exploded into rapturous applause.
A huge audience chanted his name “Will! Will!”
This latest tour celebrated his fourth platinum selling album.
Inside his smile was brighter than the one he portrayed on the outside.
So much for being the weird kid at school.
Finally he’d shown them – Wilfred wasn’t weird!
