This week we are seeing double with ‘Double Take’.
The ‘Double Take’ challenge focuses on the use of homophones* to build your writing piece. You have two sets of homophones and you are challenged to use all of them in your response
Our homophone sets from Sarah this week are:
guide – one who shows the way
guyed – secured with a rope or wire
maize – corn
maze – a puzzle
I’ve already mentioned the guide we had at the slate mine in a post a little while ago, but today’s matching goes hand in hand with the guyed tent we slept in as it was a camping holiday we were on!
Our other pairing is a little more tricky I suppose, though I can remember fields of maize when we lived in the cottage being ground into flour and used in baking at the windmill tea rooms we used to frequent (and barter for a cream tea in exchange for our surplus veg, tomatoes and apples).
Hubby and I visited The Alice in Wonderland theme park in Christchurch before we left the area, where we played croquet in the rain, complete with flamingo mallets and ‘hedgehog’ balls and fought our way through the maze to climb the little platform in the centre.
All of them are great memories.
