Daily Prompt: Buffalo Nickel…. 2000

Dig through your couch cushions, your purse, or the floor of your car and look at the year printed on the first coin you find. What were you doing that year?

Today’s daily prompt

20130224-175522.jpg

Well when I read today’s prompt, my initial thought was ‘crap I can’t even remember what year I’m in now, let alone a random year from the past’ so to be honest I didn’t think that I would be posting today! But just for curiosity I thought I wonder what year it would be? So of cause I wouldn’t have money down the sofa because I’m an OCD in practise, and it is to cold to go out to the car, the purse it was then. And the picture above is the first coin I pulled out and I can’t believe what year it was… The year 2000

So much happened in this year, probably the most significant year I had had up to that point!

This was the year because of my unhappy first marriage and to add some excitement to my life I dragged two young children in their pushchair up to London to see the millennium in on the embankment and then had to sleep on paddington station floor with a three and five year old waiting for the first train back to Devon because I couldn’t afford a room for the night!

This was the year after about eleven years of being with someone, one Monday morning in January I packed a suitcase, took the boys and left my marriage and home.

This was the year I moved into a new house as a single mother for the first time.

This was the year I meet my new OH and started a new adventure with them.

This was the year my youngest had his birthday party at my new house, dressed up as ‘woody’ and was so horrible I said I was never going to have a party for him again.

This was the year I adopted a dog and got a kitten, as if I didn’t have enough to do!

This was the year I had my first of many holidays abroad. Since then I have been all over the world to the most beautiful of places.

So as you can see the year 2000 was the year my life began at the age of 29! X

Daily Prompt: B+

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Today’s daily prompt

Tricky one! How do you do that? That is going to make us think, so I am just going to find some music that represents my last weekend! It was quite boring really!

Saturday, taught at theatre school and we are learning a charleston for a performance in a few weeks. The children are enjoying learning all the steps! Our inspiration came from strictly!

Saturday evening I did want to go to the cinema to watch les miserables, but I can’t remember why I didn’t! But I love this song, she sings it very well really for an actress!

Sunday, I stayed at home to potter while OH sorted the boat out!

I’m sure that wasn’t written like a music critic, but to be frank I didn’t quite get what daily post was talking about! It’s a good job we don’t have to put this weekend into music because it might sound like this…. I did look for sound effects but I thought better of it to post it, just use your imagination! X

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

This weeks weekly photo challenge

20130222-164838.jpg

The reason I chose this picture for this weeks challenge, is this picture was taken while on my last school trip with last years year six class. And I felt this picture was very poignant because these two boys had been best friends all the way from nursery, all the way though ups and downs of their primary life, both of them being sometimes a little challenging in their behaviour but just boys stuff, one of them having what I call ‘the swagger’ they where both lovely boys with great senses of humours, I loved them them to bits like they where my own. We had been though laughter, dressing up in dresses, hitting me accidentally with a cricket ball, cheeky comments and tears together.

I think this picture matches the theme ‘forward’ well, because here for just this moment they are both looking out to the lake, knowing that soon their lives will be changing and moving forward to separate secondary schools and this friendship will change. It does make me shed a tear.

Daily Prompt: Far From Normal

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.

Daily Prompt

Six odd things….. Ummm…. Unique…. Exciting…. Lets think….

1. If an outsider was to look into my life they would and have said how confident I am. But that is all an illusion! Inside I am a nervous reck! But that isn’t exciting is it…

2. I am very bendy! Thanks to years of dancing, teaching dance everyday and doing yoga I am extremely supple for someone of my age! …. Of my age? Now that sounds horrid!

3. I am a hippy at heart.

4. Not sure whether I want this to be public, but hey Ho, I used to do Morris dancing! I know, I know…

5. I can bash out a couple of tunes on the piano! I particular like my ‘Les Dawson’ version of ‘The Entertainer’

6. I like to say something wild like …. I can pole dance, but no sorry to disappoint, …. A sixth unique thing, I can make a good cup of tea… Does that count?

That was hard!

Thanks for dropping by! X

hang on, I have just thought of some things odd or weird about me, I have been many different things in performances, like an apple core, lamp post, yes i danced as both,fairy, witches, ballerina, clown, trapeze artist, cowgirl, spoken the whole performance in French even though I can’t say a word of it, and that is just naming a few!
Is that weird enough for you?

New family member!

Hey boys and girls!

Just letting you know why I haven’t been about in cyber world for a couple of weeks!

Welcome to our new member of our family ‘Prince Ty’, a 4 month old German Shepard puppy!

We picked him up from his breeder last Saturday and things are just about settling down now. For you that know it is just like having a new child in the house, so I have been knackered. But I think we are getting ourselves together now and into a routine. It does mean I have to get up earlier now to sort doggy out before school. He has been out and about with me to school and with OH to work and he has been very good!

Thanks for dropping by! And I will give him a hug from you! Take care! X
