Just Jot it January 21st – Mittens

Well, today’s Just Jot it January prompt word brought to us by lovely Linda is a bit of a fun one, ‘mittens.’

The first thing that springs to mind with this is those little rounded  gloves that encompass all of the fingers together and keeps the thumb separate. Great for keeping the hands warm, but hopeless if you try to do anything with them on. Getting money out of a purse being particularly tricky. This means that they have to be taken off quite a bit, thereby defeating the object of keeping your hands warm!

I remember when my daughter was young, she had a pair of mittens tied together with a long, skinny length of matching fabric that would be threaded through the sleeves of her coat. This was supposed to keep them from getting lost as they would dangle just below her hands if taken off. I think these turned about to be more hassle than they were worth, though.

Trying to get a squirming, wriggling toddler into her coat whilst avoiding tangling her up with the bloody  stringed mittens was no mean feat! Not to mention we were both hot and sweaty after the struggle and she didn’t want the damned thing on anyway!

Creative Differences — October 26, 2015

Creative Differences

I am jealous of those that are crafty

They make something out of nothing at all

I am hopeless at painting

In fact I can’t even draw!

So many times I’ve been scuppered

By my lack of artistic prowess

I wish I could master home sewing

And knock up a beautiful dress

My hair looks totally unstylish

It is either up or it’s down

My makeup I keep understated

Or I’ll end up like Coco the Clown!

I love to get gorgeous flowers

But just plonk them straight in a vase

My presentation is seriously lacking

I won’t get any gold stars!

Although I will never be arty

I don’t consider it a curse

Because I can still be creative

By writing a few lines of verse!
