Stream of Consciousness 10/3/2018

This post is for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week the prompt from LindaGHill of Life in Progress is : So far, use it as you like but have fun.

I have done an Acrostic Poem about the dawn, or life which ever way you read it. 💜


So far theres not been too much light

Only now as dawn prepares to fight.

Faint rays of hope break the cloud.

Awakening the dawn chorus loud.

Renewal is so near yet so far.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Fine.

This week’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: Use the word ‘Fine’ extra points if you end your post with fine also remember to have fun.

Rules and Pingback here at Linda’s Blog, Life in Progress.

Fine, your rules and not mine

So you are happy, fine!


Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Through the Door

It’s Saturday again and that means it’s SoCs. So LindaGHill of A Life In Progress has told us that our prompt is to tell everyone about a Door, that is not our own, that they have walked through this week. Main rule is have fun.

Rules and Pingback Here

My head was thumping and my chest hurt from a deep hacking cough, I felt rough. Yet there was the purple door infront of me. It would be rude not to enter.

Turning the handle I felt a blast of freezing air…. Oh! It’s so cold! Someone handed me a ski jacket and salopetts and a pair of snowboard boots?

The doorway had long gone when I glanced behind me. Well I had to put the snow gear on or freeze. A union jack wooly hat and helmet and goggles then I was handed a pair of gloves and a snowboard!

OMG! It looked like I was one mile off the ground a snow covered slope sped away from me and what looked like a tiny landing spot below. So many people all looking tiny.

A bell went off and I was off down the slope up the jump and then I did a Bloody Dracula landed bang! A cheer went up I had scored 95.5 and I was still standing!

The I woke up in bed to see this!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. His/Her

This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from LindaGHill is : his/hers use one or use both. Whatever you you do enjoy it.

His eyes met hers across the street. The world stopped for a second, then she found her voice and screamed.

His reaction was to drop his knife and run leaving the man bleeding on the ground.

Running across the road she reach the man, her husband bleeding from his neck. Her tears fell as she fumbled with her scarf as she put it around his neck.

Someone had called the ambulance and the police.

Help would not come in time he was bleeding out.

Later the police asked her “Would you recognise the assailant, did you see his face.”

“I would” she replied, ” I saw his face, his eyes.” They tried to comfort her.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 10/2/18

This week LindaGHill of Life in Progress has given two words , tail / tale for our #SoCs. Use one use both, have fun.

Rules and Pingback Here

A true tale of a tail.

Or lovely Ruby a Labrador ( Guide dog retired ) has been living with us for over two years now. She is settled and seems happy and is slowly learning how to enjoy her retirement.

Our Ruby is different to other Labradors, not only because of her training, she has a short tail. 6 inches shorter than normal!

Here is the tale of how this came about.

Hubby had walked Ruby since she arrived to live with the blind lady who we know and help.

We had a call from the blind lady one day, could Hubby help her partner out with some carpentry. Now you need to know the partner was also blind. He was putting some shelves in to a cupboard. Yes I did say he was blind, totally bind. He was using power tools too!

There was a particularly difficult angle and that he could not manage. So Hubby drove over to see if could assist. The sawing was being done in the garden so Hubby went through to the garden. Ruby, loving Hubby and associating him with fun and walks followed him out.

Hubby did manage to cut the angle and Howl ( not his real name) was pleased with it. Howl was a very good carpenter and hard to please . When Hubby went back in the blind lady Viv, ( not her real name) asked hubby to check out some damp in her bedroom.

Ruby followed hubby everywhere. After a few minutes he noticed red marks appearing on the walls and paintwork. It was like a horror movie.

Finally it dawned on Hubby it must be Ruby’s blood. Checking her over.. being the only sighted person, he discovered tip of her tail was indeed cut. He must of caught the tip of her tail with the saw.

Well after numerous trips to the vets and being sent away twice to the Guide Dogs Vetenary Hospital for long stays. Ruby had her tail operated on twice, and now as I said her tail is 6 inches shorter than most Labradors.

Unlike us humans dogs don’t make a fuss about illness, operations or even amputations, even partial ones.

So that is the shortened version of the True Tale of Tail!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday. 3/2/18

Linda of A Life in Progress has given us another interesting prompt for SoCS this week… “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “in other words.” Use the phrase at least once in your post. Have fun!

#SoCs. Rules and Pingback Here

I am surrounded by people who go around the houses to ask for something or even just tell you something. In other words they don’t just get to the point !

Instead of just asking right out for a favour or a cup of tea you get a convoluted diatribe! In other words, “I think I will make a cup of coffee, would you like one two?” Means can you make me a cup of tea.

I don’t help the situation because I usually go and make one, in other words I compound the situation.

97yr old mother in law might say can I borrow your pickaxe as I need to brake up those old paving slabs in the garden. In other words she wants my husband to do the job for her.

I could go on and on but I won’t because my stream of consciousness is slipping and I don’t want to bore you all. In other words I am done!

Just Jot it January. Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Movement Ripples. Haiku.

This is my entry for Just Jot it January,and today being Saturday it is also Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

Rules and Prompts




The green grass ripples

Like a wave on a green sea

Sent from ripples spread.

Ripe, ready for the cut

The golden corn undulates

The harvest awaits.

The crowd rises up

A Mexican wave sweeps through

Huge ripples of joy

Rings of blue
