#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!

#SoCS Feb. 9/19

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ends with -ly.” Start your post with any adverb that ends in “-ly.” Bonus points if you end with an adverb too. Have fun!

Seriously? Words that end with -ly? Well, okay then.
Finally I am back, taking part in all the challenges I used to!
I've thankfully got off to a good start!
It's stream of consciousness, so I mindlessly tap away at the keys.
What I am writing is making no sense, honestly.

#SoCS Dec. 1/18 – Ma

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ma.” Use it as a word or find a word with “ma” in it. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

Maybe I’m a cheatin’, but I am writing this on Friday evening, scheduling it for the morning, as I am off out out!

My mamma friends (The Tootie Frooties) and I are off for our Christ-Mates meal tonight, and though I shan’t be hung over, I am pretty sure I won’t be thinking of posting as soon as I get up!

So, it’s a short and sweet one this time!

Have a great Saturday! 

#SoCS November 17/18 – Roll/Role

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “roll/role.” Use one, use both, it’s entirely up to you. Enjoy!

I love a bread roll.

A beautiful crusty fresh baked roll is the best, slathered with butter and jam… mmmmm!

Gong back to general bread rolls though…

You might not call it a roll. Here in the UK there are so many different names:

  • Barm
  • Bap
  • Roll
  • Cob

Those are the ones I know, anyway, but check this infographic out…

Fascinating, isn’t it? And rather crazy!

Shows the important role bread plays in our life here!

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!

#SoCS November 10/18 – Mean(s)

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mean(s).” Use it with or without the “s,” any way you’d like. Have fun!

In my job, it is an essential skill to be able to work out exactly what a child means.

At three or four, or even five, some children are just not that articulate.

(Please don’t get me started on the whole ‘technology’ debate… devices may be great, but they are the sole reason why children can’t actually socialise face to face, or even draw decent pictures, and write decipherable words… swipe? just sayin’)

Be it English is not their first language, or they have speech issues, or more generally, they are used to dumbed down vocabulary, they cannot always verbalise what they mean.

Questioning is a skill we really have to hone. From working out what they are trying to say, to recognising the object they have drawn, it’s only by our talk that we sometimes get to the bottom of it.

Believe me, I have seen some strange things in the past, as well as heard some weird things, which translate to normality, but what you first hear/see… OMG!

I loved a child telling he his dad was getting an electric chair for Christmas ( a gaming chair!), reading a sentence telling me the child “loved to taste cock” (Coke!), and that they enjoyed riding a dick (bike!)… and don’t get me started on the phallic drawings, scribbles and randoms, that I have to translate!

And all this has to be done with positivity. We don’t want a child to lose confidence if we just say “What on earth is that?” or “What did you say?”

Recently I noticed a poster in school, and to be honest, I want it in the nursery – it encapsulates what our reactions are to a lot of things the kids draw…

Perfect, isn’t it? You know what I mean?

Catch ya later Peeps! Happy Saturday!
