The three things Challenge #176

Welcome to Di from pensitivy101: The Three Things Challenge. #179
Every day she’ll give you three things that will hopefully trigger your creativity.
You don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see what comes to mind. Today’s Three Things are PANIC PUNCH SHOP

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.

It’s war out there, each man woman and child for themselves. Except it’s not war is it this is a time we should all be pulling together.

Trina approached work with the rising panic she had felt all this month. As she tapped in the entry code on back door pad she checked behind her to make sure no one was watching. Entering the warehouse she was relieved to see all her co workers there. “Hi, Trina are you ready for another day of panic buying fun? ” It was Tom the shop manager, a say shop was an understatement it was infact a superstore.

Trina laughed wryly “Fun, really , I wouldn’t call it fun. Not after that woman threw a punch yesterday and it all went south! It took SCO 19 an hour to sort out the pandemonium. ”

Ten minutes later in her Waitrose uniform and stab jacket Trina walked up the shop floor to the customer service desk, dodging customers and goods alike.

One-Liner Wednesday : Shopping

I’m shopping around for something to do that no one will like.

This  is  part  of  Linda’s  “One Liner Wednesday” The  rules  can be  found  here.

Here is  the  Pingback  and  the  unique  hashtag  is  tag #1linerWeds.

It we were having Coffee at Gene’O’s place!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: 

Well this  is so nice of you Gene’O  inviting us  all over  to yours  for a coffee , I am really pleased to accept  not least  of all because I have been doing  the Sunday, ‘If we were having coffee’ along  with your  Diana , who is part of your  group  at  partimemonsters  for  a good  few  weeks  now. Recently Paul Curran  blogger extraordinaire of  no fixed  blog  has been making use of  my garden  to hold  a coffee gathering  and meeting of  minds. So if it is Okay  we will join you and all your  other  guests!

I do like  what  you have done with the place Gene’O  it is very, very  you! It feels odd  to be sitting here instead of handing cups and cakes  to he the guest.

Okay  what’s been happening  this week so IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  blogging  wise,   Johncoyote got  me up on to my  soap box  and  I dug  up  some old posts  and wrote  a new one or  two  on the subject  of how badly we are treating  our beautiful plant. Taking  her for granted, burning and deforesting her, raging  wars on her belly  and her back  killing  not only each other   but all her flora and fauna  and any poor creatures trapped in the war machine’s  way! Mining, covering her  with  concrete so she bleeds  and is starved of air. Time is running out  and we are  the only ones who can do anything to save  mother earth/ mother nature  for our  children  and our children’s children!

Oh! you have all gone quiet, I got up on my  soap box  didn’t I …..sorry I did mean  to get carried away! I am not a raving loony  honest!

New Shoes

New Shoes

Right I  am embarrassed, what else  … IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  tell you that on  Wednesday  I went shopping  with  my  friend . I needed shoes, thanks  to a bunion  on  my left  foot I now appear  to have difficulty  finding  shoes that  do not  hurt!

So we  went off  in search of sensible  shoes.  It was a hard  job  but  someone had to do it!  Was it a successful trip I hear  you asking.

New Dress

New Dress

I  managed to buy three pairs of sensible wide fitting shoes  that did not look too awful!  Not  to mention  a pair of pretty platform sandals….. well they were in the sale  and so pretty. I also bought  a lovely floaty pink and  white polka dot dress it was not on the shopping list  but it is also very pretty, also not on the list was an outfit  for the Newbie, buy outfits  for the Newbie well that just goes without saying!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  tell you  that while I was at Pilates on Friday  my  phone  rang  and it was my  youngest  son asking  me  where I was, at pilates,  I replied, where is dad,  he asked  he is not  answering  his phone, polishing  my  car I replied  OH!  he  said  we are  coming to visit  you ! Hooray I  thought  returning to pilates  excited  about  an extra chance  to see  the Newbie  and his mum and dad! It  was lovely  to see them  they were on their way out to lunch  but  it is always lovely  to see them flying visit  or not!

 

strange flowers

strange flowers

Today after my  core  class  we went over  to see them , two  days in a row  such  a treat! We  spent  the afternoon gardening, while I was tiding up one  of  the flower  beds I spotted  these  fabulous  flowers  does  anyone  know  what  they are ? I certainly  do not recognize them. I have had  a lovely  time  with my husband, my youngest son  and his family.

Now  just  before I go IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would  ask if you remember  me telling  you that I have been looking after   our friends cats  while  they are away on holiday. The cats  have been staying with us  for 3weeks so far. Well they are lovely  cats, house cats  which  means  we are not allowed  to let them out at  all. Well I have to report  that  they are very mischievous animals. One of them has made several escape  attempts  luckily  we have foiled  them all! ( so far) , here are some photos of them at play!

Kissy kissy

Kissy kissy

Well all that remains is f0r  me to say thank  you  to Gene’O for having  us  we have  aha  a lovely time!

Interior Design and Baby Grows!

Buy me !

Buy me !

Buy me, buy me came  the chant

Buy me, buy me came the shout

You know you want to, don’t say  you can’t.

We are just what you need without a doubt.

 

After coffee what shall we do

Ladies of leisure today just us two.

Let’s go and look at interior designs

Then that special shop ? yes,that’s fine.

 

You need ideas for decorating your dinning room

While I want to clothe my Newbie who is due soon!

We had a busy day and we walked  miles

We saw some fabulous interiors and shared a lot  of smiles.

Thanks L. for the toy

Thanks L. for the toy

 

We both did what we had in mind to do, on our shared  busy day

Thank you for the gift with which,the unborn Newbie will play.

I have always hated  shopping it has always seemed such a chore.

But with the unborn Newbie  to shop for it is a chore no more!!

 

 

Another glimpse of my day, hope it’s not too banal.  😉 xxxxx

 

 

 

JusJoJan: 2/1/14 Awful day!

Today has just busy today has  just been mad

Rushing here and dashing  there not a moments rest to be had!

To the gym  work work, pump pump dashing round the shops

Cleaning up the house washing floors and hoovering until I drop, drop!

Husband in a tis when he got in, at least dinner was ready so I’d committed no sin! 

Then the phone started ringing and as usual  we have to sort out everyone’s problems .bloody kin, kin, kin!

 

EvDaDaDec : Walking away.

It is the day after boxing day , it dry and the sky  was blue!

I was alone  and restless  so I went  for a walk  for something to do.

As left  the house the streets were deserted and quiet

But as I neared the town they were having  a riot!

The  shops were full as  full as  they could  be

People  pushing shoving  arguing as far as the eye can  see.

Please , excuse me, thank  you have  become redundant words

As I walked  pass the shops I thought  they were all acting  like a herd!

As I turned upon my heels and headed  back away from the town

I walked toward  the fields and trees away from the crush

The  cool air took the breath from me I felt my stress go down.

Walking  was so  much better out here in the open away from the town and the rush.

As I walk I start to breath,

As far behind  the shops I leave.

People pushing , grabbing what’s  the gain

I prefer to be out here alone so much  more to gain.
