What Day is it Anyway…. A Day late. 31st March.

Why is Linda hosting this post.

She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

Why am I writing this post ? Because it’s day Seven since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.

Yesterday started as every day, except hubby was very tired and slept in. I got the house cleaned, let Ruby out to do her business then fed and medicated her. Hubby got up and had his breakfast. He took Ruby for her walk on his own on his own because I had a Zoom meeting. The Pilates group I belong to got together and we have started having virtual lessons. Six to nine students to a lesson and our instructress. It was our first meeting and worked really well.


The rest of the day became rather stressful, phone calls calming friends who were feeling the stress of working from home, family being bored or worried. Oh! remember hubby drove a 25mile round trip to take his mother and brother a mask each ( she had to go and have her INR tested. Hubby had impressed on her and his brother that she had to wear the mask. She did not, no she said I did have it on my lap she told him. …Did his brother not even think to remind her…No, did they care that hubby drove all that way to deliver the masks (we could of used) his time, his health, his diesel and my nerves…. obviously not. I am saying no more we are both upset that she was put in danger.


Then I decided to organise my medication, which though not due yet is important. That took longer than usual.

Anyway it was not a relaxing afternoon or evening but we survived!

Be safe out thete.

Rules for  Just Jot  It January

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WHAT?

What on earth  has  wordpress  done  to  the  way  we compose  our posts… I  am sorry  but I  hate change! I really,  really  do not  like  change  on  my  wordpress page! Why do  they  do this, why  do  they  change  formats …I did  not  ask  them  to  do  this, honestly I did not!

So what  do  they  think  they are playing  at? Is  this  a cunning plan  to  unhinge my  tenuous  grip on sanity. Are  they  trying to prize the  last  vestiges of me  being in  command   away  from me  so  they can toss  me into  the void  and watch  me  sink into the sloth of  despair.

NO, NO I am exaggerating,   I loved  the   way that  the page  for composing  posts  was set out I  felt  at  home  I felt safe! I knew  what I was doing , I  was in charge and in command .

Now it  resembles  what I have  to cope  with on  my  mobile ….WHY WHY?? It  is  not fair. I know exactly  what  will happen  it  will take  me time  but I  will begrudgingly  get used  to  this  format  and  then  just  when I  feel  safe  again  the  powers  that  be  at  wordpress will, without  a  by your leave or  a  tip of  the hat in my direction, change  the  format  again. I WANT CLASSIC BACK!

So I  ask why and  for what!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Rage

LindaGHill said : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “four-letter word.”  Use any four-letter word as your theme. Enjoy!

Here is  the pingback

 

Enjoy  I  can’t  enjoy,  I  am  so  burnt  up  with  rage . I am sick of  being  told  what  to  eat , drink ,  especially  how  much  wine I can  drink! What  to  wear  just  because I  do not  want  to  dress  like  everyone  else  does,  I have  my own tastes  and  if  they are  different  so  what…eh eh!! I like  the  way  I dress. I have  never  told  anyone  else  what  to  wear!

I  feel  the rage  growing inside  me  when  I am  told  what  I can  watch on TV  ….how  the hell old  am I. I get  indigestion  holding  down rage   when I  am told I  spend too much  time on  the computer……so bloody  what ! I  am not interested  in what’s on TV   so why  not  write  and  escape  into  a world  I  like, no love plug  myself into Imogen Heap  or Sia…. why  not , why  not?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rage , rage  scream  at  the  moon  shake  my  fist in rage

Shout  stamp my  feet lash out, rattle  the  bars of  my  cage.

Damn  Blast F##k  I am  a person  what use  to live  to an old age

If I am told  what  to  do, have  no fun , hardly  a life a plain page!

 

I want  to  drink what I want,when I want , not  smother  rage

Dance in  the rain  without  causing  a raised eyebrow

Wear an unusual  dress and  not  be  told  you look  fool now

I want  to me and make my  own mistakes, not burn with rage!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I said  at  the start of  the  stream of  consciousness that I  couldn’t  enjoy  writing  this post  because  I  am burning up  with RAGE , well that is  true  tonight  but I  did enjoy  letting off  steam!

Men  F###ing  Men….. apologies and  all  men on  wordpress  exempted …… unless  of  course  any of  you  start  telling  me  what I  can  and  cannot  write!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. Linda will post the prompt  on her blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance,  Linda  will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” or “Begin with the word ‘The’.”

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that Linda  and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of Linda’s post into yours.  Your link will show up in Linda’s comments, for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on Linda’s post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. Have fun!
