Friday Fill-ins

The Zombie Outbreak Response Unit
1. I hold on going round corners, particularly in THAT car......

2. Kim is someone I like to travel with because we like to eat the same things and never argue over the money.

3. That day, when we landed in Broome, everything came together perfectly.

4. I'd like to find more time this year, but I dont imagine I will.

5. Best words on TV: "Trust me, I'm the Doctor."

6. I love to lie in bed at night and listen to the radio quiz in the dark.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to salt & pepper calamari, tomorrow my plans include a blueberry muffin and Sunday, I want to make scones!

Friday Fill-ins

by Electra
1. I am from radio broadcasts, from Singer sewing machines with a treadle and books in every room.  I am from the Goons, and Rogers and Hammerstein musicals, from rolling back the carpet and learning to dance a foxtrot.  I am from photogaphy and water-colour, oils and pastels.

2. I am from the flat at the top of the stairs where the walls are painted grey and my cot is beside the window but its too high for me to see out.  I am from a room where the curtains are white linen with bamboo drawn on them and one wall in the bedroom is painted dark red and the dressing table has a cane covered door.

3. I am from the dahlias in my grandfather's garden and the nasturtiums beside the laundry door, the garden bed that was my own and ringed with tiny stones so that ants had to walk around instead of over.......but they never did.

4. I am from people who read themselves to sleep and people who needed to know the answers, from women who sewed whatever was needed and men who went to sea and relatives who married better.

5. I am from the gardeners and the vegetable growers and the artists and the long-haired women who always found time. I am from the jam makers and the picture-takers.

6. And as for the weekend, tonight I was looking forward to reading a book, tomorrow my plans include coffee with my parents and Sunday, I want to fix the back gate!

Friday Fill-ins

1. Blue skies and bright sun on this cold winter morning...............

2. Looking back into memory lane just makes me laugh, most days.

3. Kids need to get dirty.

4. New people, seeing with relaxed eyes, time to enjoy what's around me; these are some of the best things about vacation.

5. Love is to be found in unexpected places.

6. I dont think I'll be entering any submarine races.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner at a local Thai restaurant, tomorrow my plans include making the most of the wind and sunshine (its laundry day AGAIN) and Sunday, I want to spend the day with friends!
