The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS June 15/19

Linda’s Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “social.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Ah, the days of the firm’s sports and social club, and the perks such as half price concert tickets (we saw Barry White, Neil Sedaka and Whitney Houston as a group party, though a colleague used the club to see Michael Jackson and Diana Ross too), a trip to Stratford Upon Avon and Alton Towers for a tenner, which included 2 nights hotel accommodation, and a weekend at Euro Disney when it first opened for £30 apiece, which included coach fare, an inside cabin on the overnight ferry, hotel accommodation in the Theme Park and all day pass plus our return ferry journey.

In contrast, first husband was on the committee for his firm’s social club, which had a meat draw once a week, and a social event once a month. We were dressed to the nines for one where everyone else was in jeans and tees, and on another occasion, we wore casual clothes and the rest were dripping diamonds and furs. I didn’t attend any more.

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.

    It is difficult to get it right every time.

    Quite an experience both times 🙂

  3. Oh dear, I am not a fan of work socials and really attend my own. I force myself to attend hubby’s.

    • Having got caught out twice with first husband, I was never keen to go to any more. The Bank’s Sports and Social was different though as you could choose your concerts or sports events like Wembley or Wimbledon, and the organised trips were terrific value for money.

    Is “the meat draw” a drawing for meat? Or is it British slang that I don’t know?
