#SoCS Sept. 21/19 – Wrap/Rap

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wrap/rap.” Use one, use both (for bonus points), use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Do you know how to wrap?

(No, I’m not talking about rap – the music form, though I have tried my hand at it!)

I think wrapping presents is one of the hardest things to do!

Usually, mine will be pretty neat, but I end up using too much paper because I cut too much for the object that is going to be wrapped… Then whoever is opening said present feels like they are playing pass the parcel, unwrapping layers and layers, until they get to the gift at the end!

I’d never get a job in one of those shops where you have to offer to gift wrap items bought… I’d constantly be getting my knuckles rapped for wasting too much paper!

Yay! Double points!

#SoCS Sept. 14/19 – Blue

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “blue.” Talk about the first blue object you see when you sit down to write your post. Have fun!

As I read the prompt and began to write, Celebrity Masterchef was on my telly, and the first thing I saw was a set of blue aprons on the screen. As I had been reading, I hadn’t paid any attention to what was happening on screen, but glancing up, I saw the royal blue coloured aprons and two ‘chefs’ carrying millefueilles to the table to be judged. They looked good!

Then the blue light on my USB hub for my new Macbook Air drew my attention to the backup that was occurring at the same time as I was typing.

It’s the end of my second week with my new class, and I am far from blue. The kids have settled down pretty well, all things considered, and despite some ups and downs with staffing, things have been okay!

Well, that’s a really odd #SoCS this week!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 7/19

September 6, 2019 by LindaGHill 3 Comments

It’s the last day of the workweek and time for your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. It’s been a crazy week for weather on this side of the Atlantic. Hope everyone is and stays safe and dry. Here’s your prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “weigh/way/whey.” Use one, use ’em all, bonus points if you do that last thing. Enjoy!

The way to reduce the amount you weigh is to use whey protein in your shakes!

Boom!

#SoCS August 31/19 – Couch

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “couch” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

Couch, settee or sofa
What's the proper word?
So many words to descrbe one thing
I mean, that's just absurd!

Now I'm from Luvverly Engerland
And sofa's all the rage
They come in so many colours
From the patterned to the beige

But just to confuse matters
We also say settee
A wonderful place to cosy up
With a book and cup of tea

Our American cousins
Just happen to say couch
And that, to me, seems to be
A great place to slouch

So maybe that's where
The saying came to play
You're a couch potato
If you slouch on it all day!

#SoCS August 3/19 – Astronomical

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “astronomical.” Use it any way you like. Have fun!

Well this totally suits my mood right now, as I have just been preparing Lil Princess for her start to secondary school.

Uniform buying is not cheap!

She doesn’t need to buy specific trousers/skirts etc, but the blouses have to be specific, from one shop in our area (Red and white stripes. Not attractive, but not as bad as my burgundy and pink ensemble from my school days!) We visited the shop today, having already ordered the basic stuff from a cheaper source. £23 pounds for two shirts.

£23!!!!

And I need to get another set yet too as two shirts won’t be enough.

Blazer bought too.

So far I think we have spent around £180 on her uniform, a bit of his and stationery.

Then it is shoe and school bag shopping time… Oh Jeez, let the fun begin!

It inspired an acrostic poem!

Astronomical
Secondary school uniform prices
Truly test a parents wallet
Ridiculous price tags
On everything from shoes to shirts
Nothing less than a tenner
Only the tie
Most has to be bought from specific shops
Impossible to save
Can't cheat and go to Asda
And she's only going to grow
Lordy! Let the spending begin!
