Saturday Mix – Double Take, 24 November 2018

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.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Nice holiday memories, I’m off to Alaska in Feb. and can’t wait to have some holiday memories of my own to share. It’s been way too long…
