#SoCS – Jan. 16th – First Thing

Linda’s #SoCS prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

First thing in the morning, after waking, of course I tend to reach for my phone.

It is such a bad habit, but I can’t help it.

I’m not as bad as I used to be. There were times that the first thing I would look at, would be my social media notifications, then I realised that they were taling over my life!

Now, I will only glance, to make sure there are no urgent messages from school and work, or family, then I go off to perform my morning ablutions, get things ready for the day, and maake my first cuppa of the morning.

Then I let myself sit and browse my notifications.

Still early… but not first thing!

January 14: Flash Fiction Challenge – World Book Drag

Charli’s Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge:

January 14, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about dressing up. It can be a child or another character. Be playful or go where the prompt leads!

World Book Drag

“But I don’t wanna!”

Little feed stomp, but I’ll be damned if my hard work won’t be worn today.

World Book Day.

The bane of every parent’s life.

I’ve been planning this costume since last year, after seeing the spectacular costume Jenny Harris-Smythe’s mother made for her daughter last year.

She was dining off her win for months!

So, I’m sorry, but today you WILL be wearing this, because I say so.

I don’t care if you think you look silly, and no, you can’t be Captain America! Ready-made costumes. Pah!

The prize will be mine!

Sorry, yes, yours…

#SoCS – Jan. 9th

Linda’s #SoCS prompt, this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!

Oh, what a wicked woman you are, Linda!

The sky’s the limit…

I can think of rather a lot of things, right now that seem to have no end…

This virus has the numbers constantly climbing.

The lockdown feels neverending.

The time kids are sat at home, and we have to do homeschooling… I honestly don’t know it I see the end in sight, at all!
