Your 3 words today are:





Sarah did her best to get rid of the bugs that were in her kitchen. A nest of ants. She was so freaked out by ants. Afraid that they’d fly at her, or bite her.

Some idiot had left the sugar bowl open, and sugar had spilled all over the kitchen table.

Ants loved sugar, and had immediately come in when they smelled it.

Sarah hoped she could get rid of them.

She decided it was time to go to the store and get something to spray them with. All of the home made remedies she’d used hadnt worked.




Di has given us the following 3 words today for 3tc.






The boy was very confused. His mom had to work so hard, why does she have to work so hard, he thought, whistfully, I miss her, I just want to spend some time with my mom.

His mom knew how it pained him that she wasnt able to spend time with him and she felt so guilty about it.

She knew though that working meant she was creating a better life for her son and that gave her a warm feeling inside.

Your three things today are:

She had a happy brood. Four kids, all under 10. They were very loud, and sometimes they drove her to distraction.
As they all sat outside, she looked at her garden.
“Oh my, she said to herself, this garden needs so much upkeep, I’m not sure I’ve got it in me to manage it.
Just then, her metal gate swung open.
Her husband walked in, and much to her delight, he said:
“I’ll mow the lawn! It could do with it.
She smiled.
Thanks, dear! Your a gem, she said.

His mouth twitched as he tried to make his point.

“Your so thick, she said, do you really think I believe you?”

“But I am telling you the truth he said grinning.

She knew that grin. That grin meant he wasnt telling the truth at all.

“Well, she said, we’ll see about that.”

And with that, she marched out of the room.

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
For those of you unfamiliar with the challenge, every day I list three things that may, or may not, be related.
You don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to, simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish.
Have some fun with the words and invite us along by creating a pingback to this post. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. While you’re there, why not check out some of the other posts too!
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30am UK time, so as pingbacks have to be approved manually, they might not show immediately if I’m late accessing my blog. I will get there though, I promise!
Your support has been amazing, so many thanks to all of you for taking part.
Your three things today are:

The two friends began to argue.
“Your making a mistake, ben said. Dont do it?
“Its ok, said kate. We’re not in any danger.
Ben wasnt holy sure.
“I believe we are, he said.”
They argued on for a while, before agreeing to disagree on the matter.

Your three things today are:

Sarah stood transfixed. All around her she felt the humdrum of the busy streets. She was not really there though. She was transfixed by the memory of a long ago time. Suddenly a piece of paper started to blow in the wind, it brought her out of her thoughts as she looked at it. A wrapper from a pack of sweets, she gazed at it moving in the wind, life was so strange she thought. Then she started walking again as she made her way back home, the weather had turned suddenly colder and the wind was whipping up. She was looking forward to getting inside and making herself a mug of hot chocolate.



Your three things today are:

It was a very eerie evening, the woods was silent, you could hear a pin drop. As pam walked, she felt uneasy, and she hoped no one was following her, but then, who would be in this woods, she couldnt think of anyone who’d want to walk here, except her, but then, she was always a little crazy and she always did weird stuff.
All of a sudden she heard a noise, she froze, her heart thumping wildly in her chest.
The silence was broken, and suddenly she wasnt alone any more.
