#SoCS Jan. 20/18 – #JusJoJan Day 20 – Oc

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “oc.” Find a word that starts with “oc” and use it in your post. Bonus points if you start and end with your post with an “oc” word. Have fun!

Occasionally, I wonder what it would have been like to have been the mother of multiple birth babies, you know, twins.

The year I was married we had 3 sets born in our family and close friends. I have a set of cousins who are twins, and their sister gave birth to 2 sets as well.

After marriage, one of my cousin’s daughters fancied herself as a palmist, and read my palm, telling me I would have triplets!

Obviously that didn’t happen!

But is it double the fun? Or double trouble? It would be 100% a full time occupation!

There are so many hardships: the expense, the lack of time and arms, the tiredness, the juggling schedules… but the joys you get are also double, and if you were looking for a ready-made family, then getting two for one is a perfect deal!

Triplets or any more would just be being greedy, and as for that mum who had eight – Octomum – that’s just crazy… octuplets!

That’s it for me today!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

#SoCS Jan. 13/18 – #JusJoJan Day 13 – Random!

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is as follows: read closely. When you’re ready to sit down and write your post, look to the publication (book, newspaper, a permission slip from your kid’s teacher, whatever you find) closest to you, and base your post on the sixth, seventh, and eighth word from the beginning of the page. Enjoy!

I had no written things in front of, or around me when I sat down, so I looked on my phone and my Facebook was on. The first notification was what I counted as my reading material, so the words I got were ‘Big Up Your’! Oo-er!

Okay, so I could just write about the fantastic group Big Up Your Blog that I am a proud member of, seeing as that was what the notification was about… but that would be too easy!

Big Up Yourself
Because there are times no one else will.
And if you lose faith in yourself
How will you ever convince others
That you are worth it?

That’s it for me today!

Happy Saturday Peeps!

#SoCS Jan. 6/18 – #JusJoJan Day 6 – Eco

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “eco.” Find a word that starts with “eco” or has “eco” in it, and base your post on that word. Have fun!


Well, I could have gone all safe and thought about eco-friendly things. We could have talked about recycling and saving the Earth… but no…

I thought I would try and find a few words with eco in them, and see what I could think of to write.

Meconium – for those of you not in the know, that is the name given to a baby’s first poop! It’s a strange black treacle-like substance that oozes out of that cute butt, and takes forever to scrape off!

Shuttlecock – My kids love playing badminton. Hubby Dearest played as a youngster and he got the kids involved in lessons for a while. It was great to see my son involved in a sport that was not ‘typical’ for his age. And he’s good at it! As a smaller than others kinda kid, he would get overlooked for certain team sports, even though he was good, like Football, but in badminton, he is his own entity and can take on the best of em! And Lil Princess enjoys it too. If there is an activity that gets her off her tablet for a while and involves her in physical activity, then I’m happy!

Decongestant – It surely is the time of the year for all those flu and cold remedies. At any one time from October to around March, at least one person in our family is suffering from the sniffles, a blocked nose or a cough. I’ve tried so many shop-bought decongestant medicines, but sometimes its the simple things like Viks that help, or my mother in law’s favourite, toasted ajwain seeds, wrapped in a hankie that you inhale the odour of!

Decorations – Mine are down now. They usually go down by the 1st Jan, because of our darling kitty. Sonu Singh has a field day in the tree, and I usually find baubles batted off the tree, and in all sorts of places. This year, the addition of my son thinking that the ornaments are great targets for his Nerf gun meant that I couldn’t wait to put the tree away! I have actually had to throw some things away this year because his over-zealous target practice has meant that some of the baubles have got dents in, or plain shattered! And yet, as I glance around the house I find things I’ve forgotten… Drat! Another trip up to the attic to put them away too!

Records – I mean the vinyl sorts. I was lucky enough to manage to unearth some classic vinyls that my parents had stashed away at home last year! It was like stepping back in time, finding gold dust, that was not just western music, but some old Bollywood soundtracks, and some Punjabi bhangra classics too! It’s just a shame that we can’t get the record player working!

Recorder – That was the first instrument I learned how to play! I still play a mean Polly Wolly Doodle, if I get my hands on a recorder today! It’s a shame hardly anyone knows the song!

There… I think I’ve streamed my consciousness enough to even satisfy my #JusJoJan goal too!!!


Happy Saturday Peeps!

#SoCS Dec. 30/17 – Resolution

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

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

Resolutions – at this time of year, they can be the bane of our lives.

What are we planning on changing in our lives in the New Year?

New car? New home? New career? New body? New holiday? New you?

Do you know what I want?

To be content.

For all those around me to be happy.

Aside from a few lbs that come and go, I’m pretty happy with myself physically.

I have a home, food on the table and a loving family.

I wouldn’t mind a holiday, but that’s not essential.

My car gets me from A to B and I do love my job, however tough it gets at times.

I have friends.

Good friends.

I have my Blogily.

What more can I ask for?

Okay, I do have one resolution for 2018.

I need to finish my WIP! Before it turns from teen into adult, I need to finish this story!!!!!!!


You got me.

My one resolution.

What are your intentions for 2018?


Happy Saturday Peeps!

#SoCS Dec. 23/17 – Yule/You’ll/Yul

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “yule/you’ll/Yul.” Start your post with one of them. Have fun!



Yule log.

Definitely a favourite pudding of mine during this festive period of Christmas!

Mind you, if there was a choice of stationing myself at the bar or the dessert station, you’ll find me near the sweet stuff, EVERY TIME!

I had a lovely yule log at my school staff Christmas party, accompanied by a mixed berry compote and ice CREAM – Yum!

We went to the shops today… the last Friday before Christmas, and it was manic, I’m sure I don’t have to tell you. The kids and I needed to venture into a food shop to pick up a few Christmas dinner essentials, like pigs in blankets, goose fat (best roast potatoes ever!) and dessert!

We ended up with a trifle, cheesecake and a profiterole tower… but no yule log! It appears my kids don’t share my love of a chocolatey swiss roll type thing!

Hmm… I’ll  bet Yul Brynner likes yule log!

(sorry, just had to slip that extra Yul in too!)

And with that, I’ll be off to take a child to a pre-Christmas birthday party… and get ready for my folks to arrive!

Happy Saturday Peeps!
