Captions for Big Ben

KL Caley is our host for the Thursday Write Photo Challenge. You can find out more here

Ben

For visually challenged writers, the image shows the London ClockTower Big Ben against a grey sky.

I’m playing catch up so have opted for some captions for KL’s challenge this week.

‘If you think I’m climbing that, you are very much mistaken!’ said Minnie Mouse.

Why can’t he have a cute alarm clock like everyone else?

Does it run on solar power or batteries?

Pass The Baton Challenge for February 2023

Midnight Hour

Darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand*”

She finished lacing up her thigh high leather heeled boots. Standing up, she did a once over in the floor length mirror, checking to make sure that her short skirt was short enough that despite the height of her boots, there was plenty of skin between the hem of the skirt and the top of the boots. She did a quick wiggle to make sure the skirt didn’t ride up too high, and that the rest of her stayed where it was supposed to within the confines of her dress. Satisfied, she grabbed her jacket and headed out.

As she walked down the street, she could feel the goosebumps break out all over her body, although she didn’t know why. It was just a normal night, just like any other, and there was nothing out of the ordinary. She pushed the uneasy feeling aside, and took her spot on the side of the street, waiting for her shift to begin. ( Marla’s Part)

Bathroom Project Day 8

Although a week has passed with no work done, we have done pretty well today.
The shower tray was fitted with the risers and clips for the plinth boards and the pipework juggled with for the plumbing.
Just a small problem in that said pipework was fouling one of the centre supports, so a bit more jiggery pokery and a longer straight piece of pipe was required.

Love is in da Blog 2023 :Day 2

Bee is our host for Love is in Da Blog and today is

A Hip-hop or Rap Love Song from your teenage years”(if the genre didn’t exist in your teens, choose your own)

Rap was, and never has been my ‘thing’, but this came out in 1971 when I was 15 and there’s a lot of narrative on it.

Have You Seen Her” is a song by American soul vocal group the Chi-Lites, released on Brunswick Records in 1971. Composed by the lead singer Eugene Record and Barbara Acklin, the song was included on the group’s 1971 album (For God’s Sake) Give More Power to the People.

Bathroom Project : recap

This was how we looked a fortnight ago before we started.

Day 1 saw us get the bath out and putting down new floorboards.

Day 2 started off with a tip run and getting rid of the bath (a neighbour told me today that he could have used it to clean out his fish pond). Continue reading

FPQ 1st February

Fandango is in the chair and his question/s this week are:

Which of these four types of communities do you currently live in? Are you happy there? If so, why? If not, why not, and which type of community would you prefer to live in?

  • An urban community is one that’s in a relatively high density city or town.
  • A suburb community is a place where people live just outside of a city or town.
  • An exurban community is an area further out and just beyond a typical suburban community and bordering on rural communities.
  • A rural community is one with lots of nature, open spaces, and farms, with a relatively low density.
