Daily Prompt: Being Good? Or Bad?

Daily Prompt: While walking on the beach you stumble on a valuable object buried in the sand — say, a piece of jewelry or an envelope full of cash. What do you do with it? Under what circumstances would you keep it?

If it was a beach full of people, I think I would most definitely hand it in, probably to the life guards, (they always seem to know what to do). Seeing all those faces on a beach would make me feel guilty, and I would hope that if I lost something valuable, someone would hand it in for me.

However, if it were an empty beach, the story might be different. I think I’d be tempted to keep the treasure. Unless it was a lot of money – then I’d be scared of being dragged into some dodgy drug business and being chased by the police!

I’ve not been put in a situation like this yet – so I guess I won’t know what decision I’d make until it actually happens!


Daily Prompt: Being Happy Again!

Daily Prompt: What is the one word or phrase that immediately cheers you up when you hear it?


Whenever somebody mentions it, I can just picture everything; evening walks along a beach; colourful holiday cottages; sunshine, sand and sea; watching seals from a coast path… and the list goes on!

It really does help to think of Summer!


Daily Prompt: Being Decisive!

Daily Prompt: If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?

I don’t really like being decisive!

I would love to spend half my time in Bristol – it is very much a quirky, artistic city with so much to do!


My second place would be St Ives in Cornwall, because of the scenery and the seaside and all of the lovely little holiday houses there!



Daily Prompt: Being Intrepid!

Daily Prompt: What’s the biggest chance you ever took? Did it work out? Do tell!

Well, I’m only so far into my life so I can’t say that I’ve had to take any life-changing chances so far…but I’m sure my time will come!

One time, my family and I went on a long walk whilst on holiday in the south coast, (in England). It wasn’t the flattest of walks, in fact, it was really quite hilly. So by the time we reached the beach signifying that we were close to the car park again, I was so relieved. That was, until, we realised the sea was coming in. And that would mean we would have to take the long route around – over two more hills. The time came for me to take a chance, even if it probably was irresponsible. I started jogging across the sand, my family close behind, dog at my heels. The wind rushed past me, the sea roaring in my ears. We were nearly there. I could see the car. Just one last stretch; we leapt over a cluster of rock pools and onto the remaining sand beyond, salty water almost lapping at our feet. And then… we arrived. The feeling of warm tarmac beneath my feet had never been so pleasant. I sunk into the sun-kissed backseat of the car, and sighed a breath of relief and success. I had taken a chance and it had worked out.


Daily Prompt: Being Alone… Once Again!

Daily Prompt: Tell us your funniest relationship disaster story.

Daily Post, why must you do this to me?! I have no disaster to tell of… I have no relationship stories to tell of either!

To compensate for this, here’s a photo I took of a cute couple in Wales, (I’m not that weird – it was for my art work last year!)



Daily Prompt: Being Summery!

Daily Prompt: Theoretically, summer will return to the polar-vortex-battered Northern Hemisphere. What are you looking forward to doing this summer? If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, what are your fondest memories of Summer past?




Daily Prompt: Being able to Relive!

Daily Prompt: If you could return to the past to relive a part of your life, either to experience the wonderful bits again, or to do something over, which part of you life would you return to? Why?

Last year, we went to Cornwall, (as usual!). On a couple of the evenings we went for a walk, one down on a small beach and the other along the coastal path, both in the sunset. On the beach we could see some dolphins swimming alongside a boat in the distance, (I’ve never seen them before out in the open!) and from the cliff path, we watched tens of adorable little seals playing with each other in the sea. I wish I could relive those bits – they were magical!



Daily Prompt: Being Traditional!

Daily Prompt: Traditions: we’ve all got ‘em. They might be family dinners on special occasions, or having a particular kind of cake on your birthday (Jeanne Cake, natch), or popcorn at the movies, or meeting your friend for a 5k run in the park, rain or shine, every Sunday morning. What are your favorite traditions, large and small? What is it about your traditions that keep them going strong for you?


Visiting a lifeboat station every time we go on holiday…


Daily Prompt: Being Alone!

Daily Prompt: Ever been dumped by a boyfriend or girlfriend? Was it a total surprise, or something you saw coming? Tell us your best worst breakup story. Never been the dumpee, always the dumper? Relate the story of a friend who got unceremoniously kicked to the curb. Change the names to protect the innocent if you must.

Well… can’t say I can really relate to this daily prompt!



Daily Prompt: Being Free!

Daily Prompt: Imagine that tomorrow, all of your duties and obligations evaporate for the day. You get the day all to yourself, to do anything you please. What types of fun activities would make your day?


I would get a bus down to the coast somewhere and find a small, hidden cove away from anyone. I would lie on the beach for a while and knowing me, I would probably sleep for an hour or two! I would have packed a bag full of blankets so I could be warm and comfortable and a book as well, to pass some time. Then I’d walk to the nearest village or town and buy myself a bag of fish and chips and eat them next to the sea.
