Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three things today are:
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.
You thought you were being so sly
But all you did was make me cry
And now you can’t even tell me why
He cast her a sly look. Had she been crying again? He wondered why, when everything seemed perfectly fine to him.
Now for the story. Back later…

I don’t know if you would consider this family-friendly. It is on my blog, but whether you publish it on yours is up to you. I still have to resolve it and not sure where I am going with that yet either. If it makes it to a book it will be more dark and descriptive, but hopefully this isn’t too bad. Just let me know if you don’t want to publish it on your blog and I will understand.
I approve your pingbacks Tessa and read your posts, so the content doesn’t appear on my blog. People would read it by clicking on your link in the comments. It’s a hard subject to tackle.
It is a hard subject for sure, but I also feel that knowledge is necessary in some cases. It is on my blog and I knew you had to approve it for yours so I figured I would leave it up to your judgement on what you want on your blog or didn’t want. This one rapidly got out of hand and the characters took over. I had no real say myself. It just came out. Rape is an ugly subject and having been almost raped twice in a couple years and as a teenager I don’t like dealing with it, but obviously it was time to deal with it although not exactly how it happened to me and thankfully both times I was able to get away before it was completed. I was 13 and 16 and the one at 13 was done by two 12 year old boys and the other one was a 22 year old man. A man was bad enough, but 12 year old boys?? I was hired by their parents to babysit his younger brother and sister and no I didn’t feel as if I could tell his parents what he and his friend did. Somehow I managed to kick them off of me and grabbed the two babies and locked the 3 of us in the bathroom until I heard the parent’s vehicle come in and the boys sneaking out another door. I had just enough time to get the kids into bed since they were unloading their band instruments into the garage. I couldn’t go back and what was worse, was that I got a reputation as being “fast,” “loose” and other bad things for something I didn’t do. Highschool was horrid. Talk about bullying. How much worse could it get???
A dreadful experience for you Tessa.
Just a thought, are you OK for this comment to appear on my blog in the comments section? If not I can delete it.
Yes, I am OK with it appearing in your comments. I have no problem with talking about things like this especially if it is possible to help someone else. That was a situation where I thought I was absolutely safe and I am sure his parents would have been horrified if they had known. Don’t worry. I wouldn’t have written it if I had a problem with it being known.
Thanks, as long as I know it’s OK.
Not a problem, but thanks for asking.
I guess you would call that a trigger warning. Thanks for letting me know how that works.
