Sarah is our host for the MLMM Saturday Mix prompts. This week it’s opposites.
Our challenge is all about “opposing forces” and the use of antithesis in our writing. You will need to use the two opposing words in your response – which can be poetry or prose.
Our words this week are:
– fresh and stale
– flat and hilly
I found that a bread pudding is much better using stale bread rather than fresh
(provided there’s no mold!)
Riding a bike is all well and good when the ground is flat. Throw hilly into the route and it’s not so straightforward!
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.
I haven made bread pudding in years but always liked it with hard sauce

I like it hot out of the oven. My bread and butter pudding was also tasty.
I fully agree with both those!
Thanks Lisa. We don’t have bread long enough to go stale so it’s been a few years since I made a bread pudding!
Love these, I learnt the first through my Nan, the second through travelling too far 🙄
Love bread and butter pudding! Mmmm!
I haven’t made one for years, and we’ve been here 5, plus the boat 3, so it’s quite a while!.
