#SoCS July 29/17 – Limb

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week…

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

Funny, this should be the prompt that Linda decided on for this week!

The other day, Lil Man, being cricket obsessed, has been begging anyone to go and play int he garden with him, to practice his batting and bowling skills.

Being rather tired still, I have avoided it at all costs (that and the fact I am NOT SPORTY AT ALL!) but this time, after a whole day of him whining, I decided to help him out, nice mummy that I am!

So there I was, at the wicket, wielding my bat, and I did pretty good, even if I do say so myself. Despite having a bat at least six inches too short, he didn’t get me out… but I did manage to sustain a few hits to my limbs! (See, got it in there!) My thigh, one knee and the other shin got whacked by stray balls.

Still, standing strong, I managed to stay in, until we had to run in from rogue showers!

The next day, after a particularly successful trip to the hairdressers with Lil Princess, she wanted braids, I decided I needed to embark upon some epic hair removal. The kids are threatening to cause havoc if I don’t take them swimming, so I had to get prepared.

Got me a new bikini waxing set, and then set about epilating the nether regions, as well as my lower limbs, when I noticed a bruise on my shin.

Lovely! That’ll look great at the party we are attending tonight! At least the sari will cover it! And there’s no hair!



#SoCS July 22/17 – Sealing/Ceiling

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sealing/ceiling.” Use one, use both, have fun!

Have you ever decorated before?

I am not one for volunteering for this kind of thing.

Ask me to choose decor and furniture, decide on the palette for a room fine! But painting or wallpapering?

Tedious, messy and smelly!

Still, last year we made the decision to get the kids into their own rooms, and as we were going to be changing things around pretty majorly, decided that the rooms needed a lick of paint.

I was all for calling the decorators in, we know a lovely guy who is a dab hand at getting a quick, neat coat of paint on a wall! But, there were other ideas in place…

Next thing you know, my sister-in-law, who loves decorating, volunteered a few days to get the paint on the walls and ceilings… and before you know it, we, as in my sister-in-law,  Hubby Dearest, and I, were to be officially decorators for the week!

How did that happen?

All I know is that it took us about 4 days of hard graft, aching backs and necks, along with splodges of paint streaking my hair to get things done… painting ceilings are definitely not my forte!

And don’t make me tell you about the skirting board mess ups and door frame palavers! I accidentally shut a door still wet and opened it just in the nick of time, before sealing myself permanently into a paint fume-filled room!

Still, it got done. I can tick that off my list.

I have told Hubby Dearest that next time he has a bright idea to do things home things himself, not to include me unless he has asked! And to be on the safe side… he is to remember, we do have the number for that nice man….

My interactive peeps!
