Z is for Zone...A-Z Challenge 2017

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 ( 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….

And 2 of my choosing (the generator let me down again)
Zombie &

Well I am not yet in the zone as they say.  The redecoration of our second spare room is almost completed.  There are still a few things to finish off but the carpet is laid and the furniture is back in the room including my bureau.  I haven't yet managed to sit at it with my laptop but that is my zone although the wifi doesn't always agree with me.  It's a fair distance from the router so I may have to consider a booster.  The bureau also needs sorting - I crammed lots of stuff into it when we were decorating.  I've also moved stuff from the kitchen as we have visitors here this weekend.

Normally I enjoy entertaining but due to the stressful time we've had the last few weeks this has been hard.  My energy levels feel pretty close to zero and I'm looking forward to Wednesday - visitors will be gone, hubby will be at work and I will have the house to myself.  Although I'm planning on being a zombie and not venturing out from under the duvet!

Actually I'm not a fan of anything zombie.  Horror films are not my thing and I'm certainly not a follower of The Walking Dead.  But on Wednesday I'm going to have a "me" day.  I think I have earned it.  Managing to get to the end of the A-Z challenge is definitely an achievement but I haven't done visits to new blogs and even commenting on friends blogs or replying to comments has been extremely limited.  All I've really done is get my posts up, mostly on time.  I hate giving up on a challenge.

What I really need now is a little zizz. No I didn't make that up, it means a short sleep or nap.  Although actually I need a big zizz! 

Are you a fan of zombie shows/films?  What's your zone?


  1. Not a zombie fan here either... but I have to confess I did enjoy " Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" . Book gore is not as in your face!
    My daughter has a friend from home ( a large lumpy 17-year old boy) coming to stay in our teeny weeny flat for 16 long days on the holidays... I can't bear to even think about it,

    1. We made it! Well done, you. Your theme worked well with the waffle Wendy style. Most enjoyable from this side, so I hope you had fun along the way, too.

    2. Well done to you too. You had obviously done a lot of research into your posts. Good luck with that visit!

  2. You did it and I enjoyed it sooooo much. Plus now I learned a new word. I am going for a Zizz right now!

    1. I think it's a great expression too!

  3. I learned a new word!! Zizz. Love it. We are Walking Dead fans!! Wendy, you did it!! Congratulations on completing April's A to Z!! Well done!
