Day six of Linda’s Just Jot it January and the first Stream of Consciousness post of the year. It is a double bonus in my book, combining the two!
Anyway without further ado, here is today’s prompt word.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “eco.” Find a word that starts with “eco” or has “eco” in it, and base your post on that word. Have fun!
Economising is the name of the game in January! After the over-indulgence of the festive period, it is time to cut back.
That means not only trying to save money by not splashing out on things that I don’t need (this is going to be tricky) but also not stuffing my face with things that I don’t need (this is going to be trickier)! Hmmm, I notice a bit of a thing going on here, it seems like I can’t do things by halves, it is all or nothing!
Most people can be satisfied with a small chunk of a family sized chocolate bar. Not me, I will have the small chunk then go back for another, and another until I have polished off the lot! It is the same if I see something in the shops that I want, (mainly gadgets). I think that I am economising by buying that new set of pans or more recently, my new multicooker when in actual fact, I didn’t need them in the first place!
If only I could become as over-indulgent at the gym!
Think we all need to economize in one way or another sis!
Yes indeed! 🙂
That brunch does look good. I’d want a nap after it and I don’t know when I’d be hungry again — kind of reminds me of eating big breakfast at a restaurant called Cracker Barrel. 🙂
We tend to cut back on things this time of year as well. Much as I’d love some new things, it’s time to fill the coffers back up! Sassy gets boots today, though, lucky girl. Hers are losing their soles! lol
Yes, it does look lovely, and it is unusual for him to have such a big meal, (well occasionally the morning after the night before he might)! Neither of us ate anything else until dinner when we just had a chicken salad!
Yes, Sassy is a lucky girl, I always love shopping for boots and shoes! 🙂
Hah! I know that going back over-and-over-again to the candy bar problem (did that with a bag of crisps last night! *sighs*). May you and I both find more will power and the ability to say no to ourselves when it matters (and yes when it does too).
Thanks for your support Eden, and I wish you every success too! (I love a bag of crisps but they are hidden in my house at the moment)! 🙂
I love the last line, Judy. That’s where I should over-indulge too! Lol.
Wouldn’t it be good if only we could?! 🙂
It is really hard to be a writer and exercise. They’re mutually exclusive!
This is me!
Judy E Martin
Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
