Saturday Mix: 2019 version

Sarah has made some changes and the 2019 Saturday Mix rotation will be:

WEEK 1 – Mad About Metaphor
WEEK 2 – Unique Personality
WEEK 3 – Sound Bite
WEEK 4 – Lucky Dip

This week we are hearing things as we explore the use of ONOMATOPOEIA.

Our three words, using onomatopoeia are:

  • bang
  • clank
  • glug

I was hopeless with onomatopoeia at school, and the teachers ridiculed me for it.
Sometimes I felt like leaving class and slamming the door with a resounding BANG, but they were on those special door closers.
Come cookery class, my bag would CLANK with the tins of ingredients as Mum didn’t have any of those delightful tupperware type containers, so that was another reason for staff to have a go.
I had the last laugh though (but no praise at all) when I was the only student to melt chocolate perfectly. A lot of attempts went down the sink with a satisfying GLUG.

How did I do Sarah? Do I get a pass or a fail?


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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
