#SoCS October 20/18 – Can

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is β€œcan.” Use it any way you like. Bonus points if you start and/or finish your post with it. Enjoy!

Can you believe it is nearly the end of October?

This year has whizzed by so fast, I can’t quite keep up!

I’ve experienced my second child hitting double digits, my firstborn becoming a teen, seeing my Pops fall very ill but recover amazingly, our family growing with my second Finndian nephew – so many amazing events!

I’ve had some wonderful get-togethers with friends an family, including the Annual Blogger’s Bash.

Big one – I FINISHED my first draft!!!!!

And I still have Diwali and our anniversary to look forward to, then Christmas too!

Yes. I mentioned that word.

Christmas!

More or less two months to go before the festive season is upon us.

I love Christmas. Maybe it’s because, being a teacher, the build-up to it is always electric, with nativity plays, and glitter-encrusted classrooms, as decorations and handmade cards are created.

So, how’s your year been? Let me know, and tell me something you still have to look forward to, if you can!

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!

#WritePhoto – Glimmer

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

It is there.
It may seem far away.
But if you believe, you can see it.
A glimmer of hope, like an oasis in a desert.
Shining through in the darkness of the world we live in.
Peace will reign one day, in the future. We just can’t lose our faith.

#SoCS October 13/18 – Precious

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is β€œprecious.” Use it any way you like. Enjoy!

So sorry for the late response (well, for me anyway!).

It was a busy evening last night, where I usually type up my SoCS piece ready to publish the next day, so I had precious little time to actually write!

But for good reason.

It’s really important to have that quality time with family, both your immediate, and your extended ones.

Last night, I rushed back after work with Lil Princess, and we cleaned the house from top to bottom (that’s my usual Friday routine, so the rest of the weekend is free!). Lil Man went to meet his mates for an hour.

We finished up and went to my in-laws to chill out with them, as though I see them every day after school, it’s usually a rushed pick up of the kids and a quick hello.

We chatted, then my Hubby Dearest, brother-in-law and his wife got back from work too. After a quick chat with them, we decided to get back to ours as the kids needed to eat and go bed.

It ended up being an evening of laughter, a time where more precious memories were made. My brother-in-law is so funny, I was laughing hysterically. I haven’t laughed like that in a ling time, you know, the whole-tears-streaming-down-your-face laughter.

And we decided to have a family day today, just the four of us, not the usual weekend of being sat at home, but getting out and actually doing something together.

The kids are getting older, it won’t be long before they are making their own plans with friends, and us parents are just a liability (for a while at least – I know you regain that respect and understanding of the importance of mum and dad when you get older, but as teens and tweens – we are just the ones that seem to say no a lot, and give out money when needed – personal cash points!) so it’s great to actually do things together.

Precious times.

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!

#WritePhoto – Bone

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

A rugged landscape
Embellished with skeletons
Bones telling stories
What happened, no one will know
Unless these bones breathe again
