Five Minute Friday
I came across this party from my friend Paula's blog so thanks to her for the invite.
You can find the prompt at
Here’s how it works:
Every Thursday, a one-word prompt will be announced on Kate's blog at 10pm EST.
The link-up is open for a full week, until the following Thursday evening.
To participate in Five Minute Friday, all you have to do is write for five minutes on the word of the week, post your words on your own blog, and link up the post on Kate's blog (via the InLinkz button at the bottom of the post). Be sure to add the actual permalink to your specific post, and not your blog’s homepage (e.g. http://katemotaung.com/five-minute-friday/ and not just katemotaung.com).
Also, the most important rule is that you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement. That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.
The word this week is Enjoy!
This morning I'm enjoying the fact that I can do as I please, which is currently sitting in bed with my laptop and browsing blogs and now taking part in this challenge. Being home definitely has its perks although I do have to be more careful with spending. Hubby, who now only works 3 days a week is clearly a bit jealous on the days he has to get up and go to work, like today. Bless him though, he always brings me a cup of tea before he leaves which I enjoy.
I also enjoy having a forest right on my doorstep. Originally the whole area to the north of us was Epping Forest. The name of our town, Forest Gate, denotes that there was once a gate here into London. Of course the area has been developed since then and although there is still a large part of the forest remaining, some of it has been built on. We are lucky enough to have a large common facing us and a woodland park within a mile of the house. I enjoy taking walks there.
Phew! That five minutes seemed to go really fast!
