Daily Prompt: Being Stranded (in Space)!

Daily Prompt: You are on a mission to Mars. Because of the length of of the journey, you will never be able to return to Earth. What about our blue planet will you miss the most?

The beautiful views!




Daily Prompt: Being Photogenic!

Daily Prompt: Open the first photo album you can find — real or virtual, your call — and stop at the first picture of yourself you see there . Tell us the story of that photo.

The photo I can see is of my sister and I when we were much younger. I must only be about six and so she is probably three. We are on holiday, (I think it might have been in Norfolk?), and are standing behind a caravan on the grass, surrounded by two ducks and their ducklings. I remember so clearly that there was a river behind our caravan pitch, and that this family of ducks kept waddling up to us on a daily basis and we would throw them bread. In the photo, I’m watching as a duckling pecks at my foot. There is a reason for this. Because I am me, I decided to put pieces of bread on both my feet and watch the duckling eat them off my trainers. I remember being so entertained!


Daily Prompt: Being Decisive (once again)!

Daily Prompt: We all have complicated histories. When was the last time your past experiences informed a major decision you’ve made?

I’m afraid to say I don’t know. Perhaps I’m too young to have made any major decisions in my life yet, but I’m sure the answer is just around the corner!




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 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.
