#SoCS Jan. 15 2022 – A Rainy Day

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “a rainy day.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “a rainy day.” Enjoy!

When I wake up and hear the pitter-patter of raindrops, my thoughts of the forthcoming rainy day truly depend on the day.

If it is term time, and the heavens have opened, I rue it.

Wet play.

The kids are wild. Half the equipment is unusable as it becomes too dangerous and slippery. Wet coats are hung up around the room.

Driving in certain rainfall isn’t great, either. Now we live in the countryside, there are roads that get flooded, meaning a journey that takes even longer as I navigate routes.

All in all, rain on a school day is pure STRESS!

Now if it was a weekend, and we had no plans, then, perfect.

You’d find me curled up on the armchair, or snuggled in bed, with a hot drink and my latest read.

See.

Perfect.

#SoCS Jan. 08 2022 – In The…

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “In the.” Start your post with the words “In the” – that’s the prompt! Enjoy!

In the morning, I rise, usually, totally knackered.

Honestly. I am of an age where late nights do not suit, but I am unable to sleep in very much, either.

Yet I live in a household where the rest of them can stay up until goodness knows when, and then sleep until the afternoon!

However, it also means a broken night of sleep for me. Because, someone is watching TV a tad too loudly, someone is rustling things in the kitchen, someone comes to bed and knocks things over…

You know the score.

So, although I do count myself as a morning person, I am definitely not your most rested person, especially in term time, when my morning starts at 6am!

Another truly rambling SoCS post, there, for you! (Linda, that was a toughie!)

#SoCS Jan. 01 2022 – Resolve

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “resolve.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

When I first read this I thought ‘Here we go again… resolutions…’, and I don’t really make them. Not with any integrity, anyway. (I’m being honest, here!)

Many a year has gone by where I have resolved to do things, lose weight, write this, give up that… And every year, I found myself making the same resolutions.

The last few years, I gave myself a word for the year, which I guess, could tie into the traditional resolutions, but this means a more holistic approach to reaching the end goal, because that word has to encompass your life.

But, one way or another I do resolve to finish this WIP draft, this year, (hopefully sooner!) and I shan’t promise it, but I hope to get stuck in to book 3 too. Oh, and finish that novella I was writing, as well.

A writer’s resolve.

Always strong, but sometimes not always something we can adhere to, especially when life gets in the way!

A truly rambling SoCS post, there, for you!

#SoCS Dec. 11 2021 – Tree

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tree.” Use the word “tree” or write about a tree. Any kind of tree. Enjoy!

So, today I decided to do a bit of singing, and it happens to be about a certain festive tree…

Listen at your own peril! (Actually, it didn’t sound too bad, apart from a slightly flat note right at the end, when I was trying to stop my son from coming into my room, and ruining all my recording efforts!)

#SoCS Nov. 27, 2021 – Golly Gee!

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “golly gee.” Use “golly gee” or another interjection that displays the same sentiment in your post. Enjoy!

Golly Gee!

Quite the expression to use for how I felt on my way home from work, on Friday evening, when I received a call from someone I know, telling me they had recommended me as an author for them to sign up to their Publishing House!

Apparently, she sent the link to my book to one of the co-founders of the Publishing house, and they loved the sound of Marriage Unarranged, and the future titles to follow!

Now, I’m not holding my breath, because I need to see what the deal is, but Golly Gee, indeed!
