Well it's been a while since I did a SoCS post and today I'm combining it with Just Jot it January.
Check out Linda's site here for full details of how these work.
Ok so SoCS means I just write about the prompt without any planning etc. The prompt for today is "in the corner".
Well I did have my Christmas tree in the corner of my living room. But then while we were still anticipating being able to have all the family here for Christmas we decided to work out how we would seat 8 adults and 3 toddlers down for dinner. This involved putting up the folding tables we'd borrowed and playing musical tables and chairs. It also involved moving the Christmas tree!
Yep we moved the whole thing. You're probably thinking how mad was that? But actually it was quite easy. We have wooden floors. I'd had the foresight to put a cloth under the christmas tree stand. (We're talking artificial tree here - I've had it for years but it still looks good and trying to be eco friendly it's not going anywhere until it really needs replacing which is not yet!) Anyway we managed to slide the Christmas tree across the floor and park it next to one of the sofas.
It wasn't an ideal location but it allowed for the best seating arrangement.
But then everything changed. We went from Tier 2 to Tier 4 of restrictions in less than 2 weeks and were essentially locked down. "Stay at home" we were told.
Of course it was a huge disappointment but we made the best of it and bent the rules slightly but nothing went in the corner! I was not moving that tree again!
Personally I'd like to put Boris Johnson in the corner and keep him there so he can't make any more mistakes. Not my corner of course but I'm sure 10 Downing Street must have some nice dark corners tucked away somewhere that he could be hidden in. Although I expect most days he'd like to find his own little corner to get away from dealing with this horrible situation.
Speaking of corners. Why is that spiders always seem to hide in corners making it hard to trap them with a glass and piece of card so that you can catch them and then release them outside?
Right I'm waffling. Time to stop!
