#SoCS May 18/19 – Adverb

Linda’s #SoCS prompt for this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.” Start your post with any adverb and just run with it. Have fun!

Normally, I get an idea straight away for my #SoCS post, but I was clearly stumped this week!

But since I have obviously managed to start the post with an adverb, and I shall liberally scatter random adverbs within my ramble, I can breathe a sigh of relief and move onto something totally unrelated to adverbs…

I need to share a song with you. Or rather, I need to share the video at least. We had a trying couple of days at nursery, as there are a handful of lovely children who have behaviour that is extremely hard to manage, and one dear child drove one of my wonderful team to tears…

I usually find silly songs to play to my class at circle time, or whilst they are waiting for the whole group to congregate on the carpet, and on Thursday, whilst one finished, another started… and the song, or rather the extremely camp main dancer on the video, made us laugh so much, I played it a good few times over the last two days. It is now my official earworm, and I want to do the moves as I sing it, every time!

So, I give to you…. The Wishy Washy Washer Woman!

Enjoy your earworm!!

I hope you’ll appreciate that I am now listening to it as I type this, and it will stay in my head for the WHOLE WEEKEND now!!!

Enjoy it, truly! ❤

#SoCS May 11/19

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “strain.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Strain… Oh yes, I’m definitely feeling that right now…

Ever since Hubby Dearest’s injury, which is definitely more than a strain, I have been shouldering all the responsibility of running the kids around everywhere, along with all my usual jobs, and coping with a person who is not always too happy being holed up in the house, unable to do very much at all, apart from sit…

I am shattered. And this weekend will be giving me no restful opportunity either. Saturday morning, Swimming lessons for Lil Princess, followed by badminton for them both.

I was hoping for a few hours of peace in the afternoon, where I could get my nails done or something, but no, we have a couple of hours then we will be meeting Hubby Dearest’s brother and wife to go and grab an early dinner, then on to watch a film… And Sunday, I have to be up early to get Lil Man to his first cricket match of the season… which finishes at lunchtime, and then we pop back home to see my parents who are coming over for an hour to see Hubby Dearest…

I’m going to start next week on the backfoot, again!

It’s not just a physical strain, but a mental one too… I am constantly thinking about him, and the kids, and what I need to get done next… never-ending…

So, strain… Yes. I know that feeling very well…

Strain
Feeling
Exhausted
Out of control
Not able to rest
Just constantly worried
About what is coming next
Every single day needing to
Plan with military precision
Yet still never finding time for myself

#SoCS 5/4 – Falling From The Sky

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!
What do I wish would fall from the sky?
Chocolate? Pink gin? A big slice of pie?
Or maybe some money, that’d be good
An armful to gather wherever I stood
Books, yes please! I’ve never enough
But the problem is reading them, time is tough
So actually what I would really need
Is a few extra hours just so I can read
A few more minutes to finish that book
And not get disturbed just as I reach the hook!

#SoCS April 27/19 – xp

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “xp.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “xp”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Express yourself
Experience life
Explore all options
Expect nothing
Exploits beckon
Explicit encounters
Expose desires
Expand horizons
Life has an
Expiry date

#SoCS April 20/19 – Ribs

Linda’s #SoCS prompt for this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rib.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “rib”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I started thinking about this… and what came to mind was Adam and Eve.

So, apparently Eve, aka Woman, was created from one of Adam’s ribs… thereby making her a suitable helper for Man…

But if you dig deeper there are quotes in the bible that suggest that it was not just his rib, but possibly more than a bone, maybe a side of Adam, that was used to create Eve.

So, not a suitable helper as such but really an equal companion that would conmplete Man

Woman was created to be “beside” man, not beneath or above him. In salvation, man is no more “worthy” and woman is no less a citizen of God’s kingdom. “There is neither . . . male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”

Wikipedia

I like that thought. It has been in my mind since I wrote a flash yesterday about gender at birth, and the so called importance of a male baby within our Indian communities, and others out there.

Why? Why is that dangly genitalia so important?

It’s us women you need to actually create men nowadays. God isn’t doing his Garden of Eden magic nowadays.

Our Sikh first Guru, Guru Nanak says:

“We are born of woman, we are conceived in the womb of woman, we are engaged and married to woman. We make friendship with woman and the lineage continued because of woman. When one woman dies, we take another one, we are bound with the world through woman. Why should we talk ill of her, who gives birth to kings? The woman is born from woman; there is none without her. Only the One True Lord is without woman” 

Guru Nanak

Sure, a male was meant to continue the family name, ensuring that the bloodline carried forth for more generations, but doesn’t a daughters offspring do the same, bloodline wise, anyway?

Male or female, hair shorne or tied with ribbons, breasts or dangly bits, we are equal. We were made to be equal, whether Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish… any religion.

Ain’t that the truth?

Boys and girls
Girls and boys
Essentially the same
Though given different toys

Male and female
Female and male
Yet still inequalities
A very old tale

Him and her
Her and him
Together complete
Not made on a whim

A partnership
On equal ground
As God intended
Though not what's found

Differences only
To strengthen and support
Not useless foetuses
That some choose to abort

Man and woman
Woman and man
We should stand together
That was God's plan
