The oldest thing I’m wearing right now.
Hey hey guys, Today’s prompt was “what’s the oldest thing you’re wearing today?” I’ve read a few of the responses and I like the ones where people have answered “my skin” or “my smile”. One guy was brazen enough to say “my looks”, bless him. In terms of physical things that aren’t part of my…
Quotes I live by.
I like the WordPress “daily prompt”, it reminds me of how much fun “Bloganuary” is and sometimes gives out prompts I can’t help but respond to – like this one: “Do you have a quote you live your life by or think of often?“ These are the quotes that mean a lot to me: “Even…
Thankful for my “bespoke family” and bonus parents.
Today’s daily prompt is to describe a positive thing a family member has done for me. It’s like asking someone to describe a particular strand of grass in their garden. How do you pick from SO MANY??? It’s not necessarily “positive” (it is absolutely lovely, though), but I am thankful for my bonus parents, Lyn…
Autobiography – the hook
You’re writing your autobiography. What’s your opening sentence? Since I’ve actually completed my Memoir, I can tell you what the first sentence is! Haha. However, this writing prompt asks for the first sentence of my autobiography, so that’s a different ‘animal’ altogether. My first sentence would probably be “growing up as the black kid in…
My budgeting approach
Write about your approach to budgeting. Is non-existent. That’s the short answer. I’m driven by the need for instant gratification, so I’ll spend my week’s pay every week and not save for the future. Terrible, I know. Sigh.
The after-effects of losing a parent.
How does death change your perspective? Death has irrevocably changed me and I will never be the same again. Having lost my Dad – my hero – has now meant my journey through life has a tear through it. I am now the before and after of myself. Before – when I had my Dad…
Bloganuary – Sports
What are your favorite sports to watch and play? This will be easy because I’m incredibly lazy and don’t play sports or watch them! Lol. Done 😉 I am enjoying documentaries on Tennis players though and I loved watching the movie “King Richard” whose daughters are Venus and Serena Williams – Tennis champions of the…
Bloganuary – if you could make your pet understand one thing, what would it be?
If you could make your pet understand one thing, what would it be? Well I don’t have pets, so this blog will be a lovely short one 😉 lucky you! No ranting today! Because I don’t have pets, I’ll move to the garden which is the closest thing I can think of as a pet…
#Bloganuary – What’s my dream job?
What’s your dream job? My whole life, I’ve wanted to be a Kindergarten Teacher. I love children and even when I was a little girl, I’d set my bedroom up as a classroom and teach younger children everything I knew, bless my heart. As a teen, I was always involved with kids clubs and after-school…
