#Highlightsofhappy Blog Linky December 2018 ~ because life’s for the good stuff!

Highlights of Happy Blog Linky December 2018

#HighlightsofHappy is my monthly blog linky where I invite you to share anything and everything that’s made you happy!  It’s quite simple (we like simple!)

If it’s made you happy, share it!  A new linky opens on the 1st of the month. 

The linky was born when I started to write in my gratitude journal every day and I’ve really felt that it’s made a difference.  Every month I look back over my journal and bring you my #HighlightsofHappy , which is great because it gives me the opportunity to look back and be grateful all over again 🙂

So if you’re a blogger, why not share your happy post from past or present?  It doesn’t matter how many you share as long as it’s your happy!  If you’re on instagram, why not tag your happy snap #HighlightsofHappy and link up your pic here?  If you’re on twitter, why not tweet your happy?  If you’re all 3, why not do all 3??

You can link up here!

And don’t forget to add my badge to your blog post (it’s at the bottom of this post).

 

(If you join in with my #HighlightsofHappy community on instagram, I post up my favourite snaps of the week every Friday on instagram.)

 

The badge is below.  Just copy and paste the code from the box below the picture.  Then paste the code into the ‘text’ tab of your blog post or sidebar.  Thanks!

~

Now it’s time this poem was shown the light of day again… inspired by a cafe menu made by our little girl, then about 3/4 (now 6 !)

Step into the cafe

~

Step into the café,

And pull up a pew.

There’s something for me,

There’s something for you.

~

It’s all listed here,

From left to right.

Just choose what you fancy,

If you’d like a quick bite.

~

Our daughter asked me to spell

The words that you see,

Then wrote them herself

As easy as A, B, C…

~

Now here’s the tricky part,

Nothing rhymes with orange, instead

We’ll choose a staple, how about

A sandwich? It’s bread!

~

There’s apple, sweetcorn,

Carrot, cucumber, grapes.

Not forgetting the milk

For those delicious shakes.

~

Thanks for popping by

Our little girl’s café,

Leave a tip and next time

You’ll be offered a latte!…

~

And here it is in its full glory! (without overlays!)

Has your little one done something similar lately?  Have you got fond memories of your child doing something like this?  I’d love to know!  Please comment below or tweet me @AllSortsHere

‘Q’ is for Quotes #AtoZChallenge

Hello and welcome to my take on the #AtoZChallenge.  You can find out why I’m taking part in ‘From Alpha to Zulu and everything in between…’

Onward!

Q #AtoZChallenge blog writing a to z april challenge quotes footnotes anecdotes linky

Q is for Quotes for #AtoZChallenge

In my desk diary every couple of days there is a quote at the bottom of the page.  You might call it a ‘quote’, ‘footnote’ or even  an ‘anecdote’ from a famous person, past or present.  I love to read these little snippets and I love to share them with you!  Here is the most recent one…

…but now to revamp!  So, on the last Monday of each month, I will share my favourite quote of the coming month from my diary.  Depending on the words, I may share my thoughts on them.  Or they may simply ‘speak for themselves’.

I would also love to hear your thoughts on the quote that I choose to share by way of you commenting on my blog post.  And I would like to invite you to share any of yours in a blog post by linking up each month.  It can be any quote, footnote or anecdote from the top, middle or bottom of your diary or calendar, or even a website that has inspired you with words.

Full details will be posted up in the next ‘Footnotes’ blogpost on 25th May…  Come back and join in the fun! 

~

 This post is for ‘Q’ in the #AtoZChallenge.

A Spectator’s View pt 2~ Short story #WonderfulWorldofWriting

wonderful world of writing blog linky link up party short story

A SPECTATOR’S VIEW part 2

Read part 1 here…

Liar”, thought George, “I bet you couldn’t look me in the eye and say that.”

With a pregnant pause John continued, with his head in his hand, “Perhaps we can arrange a suitable time and place to go through the figures again?” He threw the empty cup in the nearby bin and waited for the reaction.

It’s funny how you can read the truth by watching someone’s body language. Have you ever found that John? I never did like the muck they pass off as tea at train stations either.” George saw the look of amazement on John’s face before he turned and walked further up the platform as the train pulled up.

John saw George weaving in and out of the disembarking passengers and followed but George was too quick in step and in chain of thought. John had to hop onto the next carriage. George had seen John hop on, minus the phone in his hand.

As quick as a flash George hopped off the train and made for the bench on the platform. He rang John as the train chugged off.

George I…”, the salesman stuttered as he saw the name and number displayed on his phone.

Save your breath John. A word of advice. Next time you use body language to sell, take a moment to consider who is watching you. Because you have just walked away from a promotion-worthy contract. Bad luck!”

With that, George put his mobile phone in his pocket and sat back on the bench, opened his newspaper and resigned himself to waiting for the next train. He often people-watched at train stations but this morning his spectator’s view had certainly been worth while.

Whilst at college, back in the day, I compiled a ‘writing portfolio’ of which I was very proud.  And I still am, which is why I’m now sharing this story on my blog for my blog linky #WonderfulWorldofWriting.  Join in and link up with any genre of writing…

Linky open from 0630 Wednesday to 12 midday Saturday GMT
