This is my first time joining in withThree Word Wednesday
using the three prompt words.
This week's words are . . .
ABSTAIN, HALO and PRAYER
It was late afternoon and I was feeling suitably pleased with myself.
Not only had I walked past two cake shops, I'd also actually scribbled CHEESE and WINE off my shopping list.
I arrived home that evening with a skip in my step, my halo still well and truly intact.
I'd had a cuppa soup, an apple, a salad with no dressing and one boiled sweet.
As I was rummaging in the freezer for the broccoli and planning my super healthy, calorie controlled tea, the phone rang.
"I'm on my way home, do you want me to bring a Curry and a bottle of wine?"
Eeek ... I'd managed to abstain the whole day.
I looked skyward, uttering a little prayer.
"Please ... pleeease let me say No!"
The prayer was still running through my mind as I heard the words.
"Yes, and get some onion bahjees while you're there."
Aaaghh ... what had I done!
The halo went clattering to the floor.
I closed the fridge and looked up once more.
"Please, if you are listening, let me for just once make it through ONE whole day!"
