My theme for the 2017 challenge is waffling on about random words!
That might not seem like a theme but if you read on you’ll discover it’s not quite as random as it sounds. The words were generated using a word generator (https://randomwordgenerator.com/) and I opted for 4 words each day. I might focus on one or try and incorporate them all into the post.
Choosing the words this way has given me a challenge and a common thread to my posts but it has also allowed me to be myself and just waffle! It’s what I’m good at. (Don’t worry, I’m aiming for around 500 words per post so hopefully you won’t get stuck here for too long 😉)And the words for today are….
I’m not very good when it comes to estimating. I’ve been to several baby showers where one of the games played was to estimate the measurement around the “bump”. I failed hopelessly every time. A good game though. One I hope to be playing sometime between now and June as that’s when I expect to become a Grandmother. Although I’m opting for Nanny.
I’ll need to enhance my baby skills. They’re a bit rusty. My baby is now 27. He gets annoyed if I refer to him as the baby. Once he has kids of his own he’ll understand. He’s not the expectant father though which is a good thing as he and his wife are currently living with us. They have joked about there being enough room in the house if they did have a baby before moving out into their own place. I think I’d be the one moving out. East London would not be east enough!
Our area is becoming very desirable. Our main station will be a Crossrail station when all the works are finished. The Crossrail line will provide a fast service from Essex to the east of London to Heathrow airport and as far as Reading to the west. It will also be known as the Elizabeth line in honour of our Queen.
While the works are being carried out at our station there is a temporary footbridge in place which means additional steps to get to the platforms. Instead of just being able to go down to the platform you need you now have to go down, up, across and down again. Not great when you’ve got a dodgy knee! In addition, the other railway line in our area was also closed for months while they prepared to electrify the line. It meant more people using that footbridge!
Are you expecting anything nice? Would you consider moving East?
