Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated the day after Christmas Day, thus being the second day of Christmastide. Though it originated as a holiday to give gifts to the poor, today Boxing Day is primarily known as a shopping holiday. It originated in the United Kingdom and is celebrated in a number of countries that previously formed part of the British Empire. Boxing Day is on 26 December, although the attached bank holiday or public holiday may take place either on that day or one or two days later (if necessary to ensure it falls on a weekday).

A few sayings using the word box.

To box, to fight Pugelists.

All boxed up , all done, all finished all completed.

Boxed in, all options removed, unable to get out of a situation.

To Box your ears, to slap or tell off.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mini/maxi.” Use “mini” (the smallest of something) or “maxi” (the largest) or both in your post. Have fun!

Our first car was mini in 1969 it was an F registration 1967. It was an ex police car from Bedfordshire. An unusual colour, Burmuda Blue a beautiful colour. Mini’s in those days were tiny and basic and not very fast, not sure it could of been a traffic car, but it was probably a panda car.

That is how our Mimi would of looked before we bought it. The blues and twos had been removed from the roof and the doors had been stayed blue to match the rest of the car. We loved it so, we travelled to Cornwall, Scotland and Devon in it. It was a real work horse and we had it when we lived in London , until we moved to Exmouth in 1973.

The above dress is a mini dress the hight of fashion in those days! Talking of fashion, well I just mentioned it didn’t I? I was a window dresser in those days so what with staff discount and proximity to all the latest “gear” I had a chance to follow fashion which included, mini skirts/dresses, hot pants, midi dreses/ coats and of course Maxi dresses/coats. Though in my case, being vertically challenged, the middi sufficed as a maxi for me!

I had one like this in Brown and it had frog fastening at the front. I love my maxi coat and mini dress.

I also had one of these boy it stank!

I loved my Afghan coat but it really never lost its smell. Well I think that’s all I need to say about Mini and Maxi. Let’s ask George and Ringo to play us out, Fab a song that brings back those days to me 💜

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. Honey. 21/2020

Badge by Shelley Krupa

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday from Linda G Hill is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

The last thing I put in the fridge was honey. The little ditty is personal on how I feel and not a daming review, I am sure it’s lovely.

Honey, made by Australian Bees
Hit my tongue but failed to please.
The blossom sweetness failed
My taste buds were not excited nor regaled.
So I returned the jar to the fridge
Was I disappointed, yes, just a smidge!

Round like a circle it never ends

Intwining us within its resonation

Never ending it will bind

Gathering us to it’s heart.

Ringing in my head

Impetuous words said

No going back you shouted

Get on the phone we can fix this undoubted

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!

I have to admit I am not very good at spelling but I usually manage even if I do have to occasionally look a word up. There is a word though that I often get wrong and have to check up on regularly . That word is NECESSARY I often have to look that one up. I think it must be the number of C’s and S’s they just confound and confuse me. It’s a tad like Anniversary I always want to spell it as Anniversery? Why I just don’t know. Then there is adversary I think that should be adversery but again it is not. Anyway I am so late with this one so I am going to stop now before you think I am totally illiterate!

Is it ever necessary

To be an adversary to a fairy

Especially on their Anniversary?

Meantime, it’s not kind

Leaving like the tide

No way to keep some behind

It is limited meantime.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “new/old.” Use either or both of the words “new and old” any way you’d like. Bonus points for starting and ending with either one. Have fun!

News hit my email that made me sad. Though it was not other than my I might of expected yet I am railing against it. Nothing new, age old it’s the circle we all go through no one and nothing lives forever.

I tossed and turned and in my dreams I was lost on a journey on a train. Again nothing new about that, it seems I am forever lost. I awoke ever hour on the hour, same old scared feeling. Life goes on until it stops. None of this makes sense.

New Life brings new hope

Old nightmares retreat quietly

Souls never grow old.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. August 22nd 2020 Brush.

Good morning, it is Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt for us to make fast and loose with is : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “brush.” Use it as a noun, a verb, or an idiom. Have fun!

It’s 7.20am and I have been awake over an hour, looking out towards the trees opposite I try to brush the cobwebs out of my head. They are very stubborn cobwebs they do not want to be brushed!

So many thoughts are swirling around in my head not many happy thoughts in there though! Can I , should I even, brush them under the carpet. I could do that it’s the easiest way to deal with problems just brush them aside, pretend all is well.

No, it’s no good even though I don’t feel up to it I must 🎶dust myself off, brush myself down and start all over again 🎶. Yesterday 49years ago I married the love of my life yes we jumped the brush.

So even though I am tired and not being well is getting me down, and hubby is feeling down coping with his mother’s estate and his awkward siblings we must brush everything aside and just get on with life.

Okay let’s pick up life’s paint brush and create our own canvas, let’s make each brush stroke count. Like the dog brushing past my legs, the squirrel in the trees opposite with his brush tail, we’ll grab the brush and sweep up the pieces.

That’s enough I am slipping in to Madness here so that it for this week folks! I am not giving you the brush off.
