Fun for Friday!

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

This week I decided to link my contribution to the current situation here in the Nesbitt household.....I am on a diet! Oh no! I hear you cry - she is going to bore us with tedious facts and revelations! Rest assured - I will not, I promise you - have I EVER bored you? Ok do NOT answer that!!! There are only so many free pies I can eat before the old waistband starts to complain and with the colder weather approaching (surprise surprise) it means my winter biking gear will have to come out of hibernation and I do not want "a scene" when I can not zip up my trousers - so I am being proactive in this and getting in quick with a diet courtesy of slimming world! I am not one to ramble (stop laughing)....and I will keep you updated, but for now just stick with me....anyway I digress.....back to my 55 for Friday.....inspired by a neighbour you may just recognise! lol!

You know what it is like being on a diet!

You would gladly give your right arm for a good meal – roast beef, a stack of yorkshire puddings, mashed potatoes with lots of butter, in thick onion gravy? mmmmmmmm!

OK ….back to the diet- so a nice juicy, crunchy, healthy fence all round then!


  1. I think maybe that's the exercise to go with the diet. That horse is definitely working hard at it!

  2. I love it! How long before the fence is demolished??

  3. jabblog

    Not long! lol! The horse is working its way along the entire fence! Will keep you posted! (get it --posted?)

  4. Yikes, all that lush field to chew on, and he opts for the post (shaking my head)..

    Good luck with the diet hon, I'm thinking along the same lines, the pounds have crept on this past year, I think I might need to take stock, too (sob)!

  5. Some diets can certainly taste like that, can't they? :-)

  6. Shrinky (hugs)
    You looked lovely when we met up but fully understand where you are coming from - people have said to me "But you are not fat" that is beside the point - I am bigger than I was and I weigh more - and that is as good indication for me. I enjoy the Slimming World diet - I am not hungry at all and certainly feel better,I know you can follow it online so why not check it out! I don't think you would enjoy the "class" I only go for motivation.

  7. Anthony -
    Hey a piece of fence post sounds good! lol! Yes some diets are dreadful and fill one up with mysery and blackness - let us always enjoy good food and good friends eh? I had 2 lovely home grown eggs with tomatoes for breakfast - set me up for the day!

  8. hehe. cute horse...i bet there is a lot of fibre in a fence...but the splinters may hurt on the back end...

  9. Brian....
    Ouch! They may cast a spell eh? lol!

  10. LOL on Brian's thought.

    But's not the KIND of diet per se if you ask's how MUCH.

    "Pop...goes the weasel" is my link to my 55...just scroll down below the Halloween part. I do hope you can find time to visit with me! Have a super Friday, and a blessed weekend.

  11. How many calories are in a fence post anyway?
    Loved your 55 my Dear.
    You always make me Smile.
    Thanks for playing today, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  12. LOL that fence must taste good maybe someone coated it with sugar!

    I'm on a permanent diet! :(

  13. Wood is not a proper diet. Love the metaphor just the same. Very funny.

  14. Love this 55. I crave chocolate when I am on a diet. Actually, I crave chocolate most days, HEHE.

    Thanks for visiting our 55's and our recipe blog. We'd love you to come back and share a diet recipe with us.

  15. LOL...too funny and that video is just perfect. Good luck with your diet. Keep us posted. Have a wonderful weekend :)

  16. LOL!
    I understand completely.
    Except for me it's pizza and tacos instead of yorkshire puddings. :)

    Thanks for doing Friday 55! :)

    Mine's been posted here since last night, but it's taken me this long to visit and leave comments. Sorry about that.


Thank you for your comments, always nice to know somebody has taken the time to let me know what they think.
