Celebrating Wednesday's #28

Well here we are again. I must say, after such a long time of not doing our little Wednesday slot, it feels a little odd to be back, but in a good way. It's nice to have a day of the week where you know what you have to do and there is a definite focus. It does take the pressure off just a wee bit. Fellow bloggers will know that coming up with content can sometimes be a real challenge. Writers block is, indeed, a real thing.

Thankfully, that is not a problem today because here we are, ready to celebrate the middle of the week. Not only is it downhill to the weekend from here, but it is also a special day.

Today Wednesday's special day is...

Square Dancing Day!

I'm not going to lie, I know nothing about square dancing whatsoever. Apparently, according to my sources it's roots go back to 17th Century England, who would have thought.

I'm thinking it's country dancing, but minus the maypole. Hands up all of you who had to partake of country dancing when at primary school? I must confess, I quite enjoyed it, it was a complete mess, because no one actually every listened to the instructions being called out, but that's what made it fun. Sadly, I never did get to dance around the Maypole, because I broke my arm and the school wouldn't let me. I know, it's a sad story.

Anyway, school country dancing aside. I think square dancing is probably the grown up transatlantic version and because it is square dancing day, I think we should dust off our dancing shoes and do our best school dancing to honour the occasion.

So get dancing, have fun and stay safe.


  1. Hi Lisa, I'm trying my hardest to will myself off my seat, but memories of a dragon of a country dancing teacher still fill me with dread. I don't think she let us near a Maypole we were that bad!

    Happy Friday & thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.
