Prompt for #SoCS April 18/2020

Thanks to Linda for setting the word prompt yesterday.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “practice/practise.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
I admit I’ve gone a bit off the boil with some challenges lately, some of which I haven’t participated in at all this year!
They say practice makes perfect, and it doesn’t matter how much I practice, perfection is never the end result. However, saying that, the results aren’t actually bad, and in the case of food, usually edible!
Practicing scales when I had piano lessons was boring, and I’d try to vamp things up a bit.
I do a pretty nifty version of chopsticks too.
I used to love netball practice at school, but one PE teacher seemed to think that anything I enjoyed or seemed to, was off limits and she’d put me on the hockey field instead in the winter months, and in the summer rather than tennis, it would be athletics. Needless to say, I am not a sporty person, though I have taken up the miniature javelin.
Hm, practice makes perfect, and the lampshade was a nervous wreck as we both hit it on more than one occasion. My game improved somewhat when we put the board up in the hall, and the closest I got to 180 was this
Sadly with the current status quo, the darts league has been suspended for the foreseeable future and although Hubby and I still play at home, it doesn’t seem to matter how much I practice, my game is going to pot.

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.

    Well, at least home gives you a nice quiet space to practice…you’ll knock it out of the park once the league starts back up.
