#SoCs and JusJoJan for Jan 5th, sip!

That first sip of my cup of tea, yum! I need it too this morning!

I have a hangover! Oh no! I only had one drink last night, so how could I have a hangover? I really dont know how that happened!

I didnt sleep too good either. Sigh. I couldnt settle. I kept scrolling on my phone, scrolling on fb. And replying to email!

Now, 3 cups of tea later, I’m starting to feel human again.

At least I dont have to be anywhere today, or do anything, I can just relax. I was going to head home to my own house today from mom and dads, but my sister offered to take me tomorrow instead. So I opted to stay another night. I will save some money on taxi fares if she takes me.

So now its just a day for resting! Kicking back and relaxing!

#SoCS 29th december…ask someone!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is ask someone else. Either ask someone for a prompt word or, if you cant, turn on a TV or a radio and choose a word from the first sentence you hear. Enjoy!

My word is, song!

So many great songs this year! I just heard on the radio this morning that the former president obama put hosier on his list of great songs for this year! I dont particularly like hosier myself, but he’s irish, so…yeah! Good that obama does!
I like a lot of this years music. Ed sheeran, arian grande, and my newest favourite, sweet but psycho by ava mac. I’m too lazy to link it here but…go look it up on youtube! Its a great tune! Very catchy!
This week our local radio station here in cork has been playing a top 5 at 5 each day. Each day they feature a different genre, I like listening to them.
Music is so cool. I couldnt live without it!
I have both apple music and amazon music. I’m totally addicted! Life isnt complete without music IMO!

#SoCs 22nd Dec Tin!

This week I am participating in Linda Hills prompt for stream of consciousness saturday.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is tin. Use it as a word or find a word with tin in it, and base your post on that word. Bonus points if you start your post with that word. Enjoy!

We have a ton of chocolate in our house. Well, because its christmas! Chocolate is everywhere at christmas.

My fave are the tins of roses, cadburys roses. Yum yum!

My favourite kind of sweets in the tin are the ones with the nuts in them. Or the coffee ones. Oh heavenly doesnt even begin to cover how delicious I find them.

I am eating way too much chocolate though. My diet has gone out the window. But the thing I keep saying to comfort myself is, its christmas! Everyone has some treats at christmas time!

Did you know though the tins they use to use for roses, metal tins, they no longer use? Now they come in plastic tins! And another thing, all the wrappers on the sweets have changed too!

I still love them though! It doesnt deter me from eating them thats for sure!

I hope you all have a wonderful christmas, a christmas full of good food, and many, many treats!

#SoCs Dec. 8th Musical!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “musical.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

One of my fave genres to listen to is musical theatre. I love it.

Maybe because I was in stage school for years, I have so many wonderful memories of stage school, of performing, and I made so many amazing friends. I highly recommend it.

I also have been to many shows. I love going to the theatre. Musicals are my absolute favourite!

One I love that came out recently is the greatest showman!

This song from the movie means so much to me!

#SoCs Roll, roll!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is roll/role. Use one, use both, its entirely up to you. Enjoy!
So yeah. This one I had to do when I saw it. Because, well, this week on friday I had a gorgeous bread roll, filled with turkey, cheese, and a lot of chili sauce too!
I was soooo baaaad!
I’m on a diet you see. I’m in slimming world. And I shouldnt be eating this sorta food at all! But my thing is, every once in a while for a treat, its fine!
You cant avoid the bad foods all of the time. Indulging is ok every now and then! Once its not every single day!
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed my bread roll too! It was humungus. Its like my friday thing now to get one. The last two fridays I did that. I enjoy a treat on a friday after my gym sesh!
Do you go to the gym, or do you enjoy a treat on a particular day of the week?
You only live once after all! Live and laugh and love and all that, right? Of course!

#SoCs-mean, mean!

This week, LIndas prompt for socs is mean!

Tonight the kids are telling me I am mean! The littles, in our system, that is!

Why am I mean?

Because I wont let them eat junk food! Chocolate, crisps, cake, nooo, not having that!

What I want, and what they want, are totally different!

They want to binge on junk food because they miss Eileen and, you know, eating chocolate and crisps will make them feel good! Not happening!

I miss Eileen too but…there are better ways to cope!

Eating junk food will just lead to binging, I know it!

So, we will distract from the pain of Eileen being gone in other ways, like, for example, watching some X factor on tv, the kids love that show! Or I will maybe read my book later this evening and try to finish it! Its an anthology of true crime stories! So pretty intense, pretty dark! But I’m almost through reading it! I have an hour and 40 mins left to read on it!

Im now drinking a cuppa! Tea makes everything better, as Emily always says!

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 10/18


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is point. Open a book on your lap, close your eyes, and put your finger on the page. Whatever you land on, whether it be a word, a phrase, or a sentence, write about it. Enjoy!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what youre going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry it doesnt matter. Just let the words carry you along until youre ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say Write about dogs; the prompt will be more like, Make your first sentence a question, Begin with the word The, or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! Its important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write This post is part of SoCS: and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If youre self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other persons blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If youre the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, Stream of Consciousness Saturday, which youll find below the Like button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if youd like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers youll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post SoCS and/or #SoCS for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

Cooking! I opened a cookery book! I landed on the word cooking!

So cooking. Mom and me are going to cook this weekend. Not sure what we’ll make yet. We may make a chilli, or some butternut squash and carrot soup.

I have some slimming world recipe books in braille. I told mom I’d call out some of the recipes to her that is when I decide on what to make. That way I am helping too!

I love spending time with mom doing the cooking. We make lovely food, have quality mother daughter time, and most important, I have healthy food to eat for the week!

Now that I’m steadily losing weight again, I wanna keep it that way!

I am going to go now and look through my recipe book, comfort collection! See what comfort food I can come up with to make!
