#SoCS April 6/19

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

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

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt was icecream!

I don’t know if you have these anywhere other than the UK but here we have ice lollies called Fab!

They are a mix of strawberry and vanilla ice, dipped in chocolate and sprinkles!

Have you had one?

I must admit I am not a big fan, but the kids love them!

Fab lollies are older than me… introduced by Lyons in 1967, to coincide with the popularity of Thunderbirds, alongside another lolly called Zoom which was more rocket shaped for the boys… Apparently girls would have prefered the ‘feminine’ shape of a Fab, rather than a Zoom lolly…

Personally, the ice lolly is more my thing!

#SoCS March 30/19 – Dough – D’oh

Linda’s #SoCS Prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

D’oh! Gotta love Homer Simpson!

He’s given us the best reaction phrase for when you goof up!

And that Homer also loves donuts (or doughnuts as we should really spell it!)

Do you like doughnuts?

Short’n’sweet this week!

#SoCS March 23/19 – The Last Piece Of Mail I Received

Linda’s SoCS Prompt this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!

Hmmm… it’s not often I get mail nowadays. Most of my bank statements and bills are online, as I hate to throw so much paper away!

However, there are some things that are inevitable… Bills.

And Insurance renewals.

The last piece of physical mail I received was a renewal reminder for my cat, Sonu Singh. And his Pet insurance premium.

We are lucky to be blessed with a beautiful, healthy kitty who has just celebrated his 5th birthday with us too.

And his health means that we haven’t ever had to use the insurance, but is’s a ‘just in case’ scenario, as it is for all insurance.

He’s a fully fledged member of the family so he deserves to be looked after, just right too!

But the premiums! Oh my!

It went up by £100 just in a year, and that is even though we haven’t claimed ever.

Apparently it’s his age.

Seriously? He’s 5! And a house cat, at that.

Most insurers mention the 10 year mark as a time you would start to see rises, but not our company.

Suffice to say, we found another insurer, at a fraction of the cost, and the same piece of mind regarding our fur baby.

We love you Sonu Singh!

#SoCS March 16/19 – Soul/Sole

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “soul/sole.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

A sole soul
Is a very unfortunate one
Where others have lots of company
This one tends to have none

He leads his life
In a solitary way
Not caring at all 
If it's night time or day

So if you meet one
Approach with care
And give them a smile
Or a word, if you dare

#SoCS March 9/19 – Abash/A Bash/Bash

Linda’s #SoCS prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “abash/a bash/bash.” Use “abash,” or “bash” as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you manage all three. Have fun!

I’m going to a bash this year.

I’ve been to a bash the last three making this my fourth.

It’s not just any bash, but the Annual Bloggers Bash.

Have you heard of it?

It is a great event, where you can meet many likeminded bloggers, and mingle, share tips and ask questions.

There is an awards fuction too, which comprises of catergories whose nominees have been voted for by bloggers worldwide.

I’ve been lucky all three years, coming home with some sort of recognition, from second place, Best Overall Blogger award 2016, to the winner Best Overall Blogger 2017, to third place Best Overall Blogger 2018. I was even a guest speaker last year!

It appears that I have peaked.

This year I have been nominated for Best Book Blogger ( grateful for the nomination) but there is no way I could be placed in this category, as I know of many more, focussed on book, blogs that are more deserving.

But I shan’t come away from the day abashed. No.

I’ll come away with more beautiful memories of a fantastic day!
