#SoCS Sept. 14/19 – Blue

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “blue.” Talk about the first blue object you see when you sit down to write your post. Have fun!

As I read the prompt and began to write, Celebrity Masterchef was on my telly, and the first thing I saw was a set of blue aprons on the screen. As I had been reading, I hadn’t paid any attention to what was happening on screen, but glancing up, I saw the royal blue coloured aprons and two ‘chefs’ carrying millefueilles to the table to be judged. They looked good!

Then the blue light on my USB hub for my new Macbook Air drew my attention to the backup that was occurring at the same time as I was typing.

It’s the end of my second week with my new class, and I am far from blue. The kids have settled down pretty well, all things considered, and despite some ups and downs with staffing, things have been okay!

Well, that’s a really odd #SoCS this week!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 7/19

September 6, 2019 by LindaGHill 3 Comments

It’s the last day of the workweek and time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. It’s been a crazy week for weather on this side of the Atlantic. Hope everyone is and stays safe and dry. Here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “weigh/way/whey.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you do that last thing. Enjoy!

The way to reduce the amount you weigh is to use whey protein in your shakes!


#SoCS August 31/19 – Couch

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “couch” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

Couch, settee or sofa
What's the proper word?
So many words to descrbe one thing
I mean, that's just absurd!

Now I'm from Luvverly Engerland
And sofa's all the rage
They come in so many colours
From the patterned to the beige

But just to confuse matters
We also say settee
A wonderful place to cosy up
With a book and cup of tea

Our American cousins
Just happen to say couch
And that, to me, seems to be
A great place to slouch

So maybe that's where
The saying came to play
You're a couch potato
If you slouch on it all day!

#SoCS August 24/19 – Preposition

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “preposition” Start your post with any preposition. Bonus points if you end with one too. Enjoy!

Near me, sits my daughter, Lil Princess, hurriedly doing homework.

Yes, it is the summer holidays, and she starts her new school in 10 days (EEEK!), yet still, she has homework.

I’d have thought that, considering they finished primary school, and were getting ready for a whole new chapter, in their education, that the kds would get a break. But no, don’t be silly.

And no break for kid, means no break for mummy either!

Not one, but three different pieces too!

  1. A book review – well that’s not too bad, considering she likes to read, and had already read some of the books on the recommended reading list. So a review of Wonder has been written.
  2. Maths – design a farm (?!?!) with fields containing animals and crops, but the catch is each crop or animal has a field that has a specific shape and plot area that you have to work out and adhere to… Yeah. That’s not a relaxing easy task… Believe me, I know! It’s what she’s battling with at the moment!
  3. Create a Solar System fact poster, with a list of 5 items that need to be included. We haven’t looked at that yet, but it’s pretty straight forward.


Homework. In the holidays.

I’m not convinced. And I’m a TEACHER!

When to kids get a chance to relax nowadays?

I’d much rather they were sent with a not from both schools, last and future, saying “Enjoy your break! You’ve worked so hard, and there is still plenty more of that work to come, so this holiday, enjoy your freedom! Read, meet friends, play outside. Then come back fresh and ready for the start of a new chapter!”

Is that too much to ask for?

#SoCS August 17/19 – Co

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “co-” Find a word that uses “co” as a prefix and use it in your post. Have fun!

I’m tired.

You’d think, with a 4.5 week vacation, I’d be anything but tired.

Well, the first week, or so, I was in school setting up my new classroom.

The following two weeks, I managed to avoid going into school, even though I wanted to pop in on several occasion to just check things were okay!

So, instead, I started my edit, with gusto!

And in 2 weeks, I had completed the main restructuring and tweaking of my book.

That was a long time looking at a screen though.

My eyes suffered, my head suffered, and even my poor screen suffered. It has developed a flicker, rather like a nervous twitch, that starts up after a few hours of me using it.

And the mental exhaustion has kicked in.

I’ve sent the MS to a few readers, three known, trusted readers, and two who are writers I have met via a FaceBook group I am an active member of.

So for the next few days, I shall be operating on auto-pilot. Actually, it might be a good time for Hubby Dearest to rise from the Hurt Foot Brigade, and co-pilot for a while, so I can rest up a bit, while he deals with the kids demands!

(Who am I kidding? Firstly, I am too much of a control freak to totally let go. He’s there. He does plenty. It’s just not how I want things done, so I do them again, anyway! And secondly, even if I did, I’d end up implementing more changes to the MS as suggested by the readers, because I CAN’T SWITCH off!!!)
