What’s in a Name 5th December.

Sadje is our host for the Sunday Poser and this week asks
When I started my blog in 2013, I had no idea which direction it would take. I was careful not to use names in my posts, and people began to address me as Pen, Pens or Pensitivity.
I did a post on how I came to be named and amended my About page and Gravatar introduction accordingly. Now everyone knows me as Di.

As for Pensitivity101, that sort of came about as a play on words, Continue reading

Sunday Whirl Wordle #530

Brenda Warren is our host for The Sunday Whirl. You can join in here


stars, edge, roar, role, burn, chatter, feline, hive, sign, curse, haze, secret

The room was a hive of nervous chatter,
Everyone waiting for a sign.
Through the haze she came,
Glorious, beautiful, deadly.
The stars dimmed,
They dare not outshine her.
Their role reduced in the night sky.
The edges of the Universe
Began to curl and burn,
Such was the magnitude of her curse.
It was no secret now
That this Feline had the roar of oblivion.

Song Lyric Sunday : 5th December

Jim Adams is our host and Paula Light has suggested the topic of Home, Room, Kitchen,
Shower and Attic.
Daddy’s Home” is a famous song by American doo-wop group Shep and the Limelites. The song was written by the three members of the band, James “Shep” Sheppard (1935–1970), Clarence Bassett (1936–2005) and Charles Baskerville. The group recorded the original version of “Daddy’s Home” on February 1, 1961, and it was released on Hull Records in March 1961 with the B-side being “This I Know”.

“Daddy’s Home” reached no. 2 on the Billboard popular music chart in May 1961. It was kept from No.1 by “Travelin’ Man” by Ricky Nelson.

Later songs by the band were not as successful as “Daddy’s Home”, but still sold well.

Lyrics are in the clip.

I first heard this by Jermaine Jackson in 1972, and Cliff Richard released it as a single in 1981, when he received the  Daily Mirror Readers Award: Outstanding Music Personality of the Year.

E.M.’s Sunday Ramble Prompt #2

It’s Sunday and the second outing of the Sunday Ramble Prompt. You can find out more and join in here

This week’s topic is “favorites“.

Here are the questions:

  1. What is your all time favorite food for any occasion?
    Cheesecake. I love it, and was given a foolproof recipe that requires no cooking!
  2. What is your favorite season and why?
    I love Autumn because of the amazing warm and rich colours.
  3. Pick three of your most favorite colors and tell me why you love them.
    My favourite colour is green, but I also like purple and blue.
  4. Who is your favorite person on the planet?
    He is
  5. What is your most favorite personality trait in other people?
    I’d normally go with loyalty, trust and honesty, but today I’m going for fun as we don’t have much to laugh about these days. It’s makes our daily challenge of making at least one person smile every day even more important.
    All photos except the above quote are mine.

Addendum:
Amy answers a different Q3 on her responses, so I’m including that one here too

3 (ii) Where is your favorite hiding spot when you want to not be bothered by anyone or anything? If you do not have a special place, make one up.
Years ago, the only place I could ever get any peace and quiet was in the bathroom!
I used to grab a good book and my radio, then run a bath with loads of bubbles and lock the door! You wouldn’t see me for at least an hour.

Today is Sunday Dec 5th

It is CHUCKING it down outside. It’s cold and windy, and in short, we ain’t going anywhere!

It’s been raining practically all night and I heard most of it. I could not get comfortable, if my feet weren’t cold, they were itchy, then when I got them sorted out, my shoulder or back hurt. The swelling has gone down in my back but it is still tender. I think I slept awkward a couple of nights ago and it was such a deep sleep, I didn’t move all night.
I had a hot shower this morning and just stood there letting the water do its bit. It’s helped.

Hubby is also out of sorts, we think having caught a chill the other day, so lunch is a quiet affair of jacket potatoes and tuna with mixed veg on the side.
The scales were OK-ish, but I have had a sock gain of half a pound on last week, but I am still within my target parameters so not too worried. I am intending to enjoy my Christmas Dinner and all the trimmings so working towards it now! I am looking forward to two days off with no syn counting!

Have a good day and keep safe everyone.

Memories of The Secret Policeman’s Ball

For some reason when I woke up this morning, this immediately came to mind, and it was such fun, I thought I’d share it for my non challenge musical choice today.

Natalie Imbruglia followed fast on the heels of Kylie Minogue, having also starred in the same Australian soap Neighbours.
It’s hard to believe this dates back to 2006.
Our interpretive dancer is David Armand and he is brilliant

If you’ve got 15 minutes to spare, enjoy this (plus We are the Champions afterwards!)

Weekend Writing Prompt 4th December

A little acrostic poem for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt today as the first thing I thought of was witches and cats!

Feline entity purring softly, secure, ever present
Always close, always watching, a permanent fixture,
Missing nothing, all is seen, you cannot hide
Illicit, illegal, illuminating meetings and encounters,
Lucky for some, black or not, but beware, nothing goes unnoticed.
Insurmountable loyalty and devotion, never ending
Adoration and servitude to The Mistress,
Riding pillion on her transport of choice.

Total word count 79.
