What I'm craving today - 2/12/16

Five Minute Friday 

You can find the prompt for this challenge here.


Here’s how it works:

Every Thursday, a one-word prompt will be announced on Kate's blog at 10pm EST.
The link-up is open for a full week, until the following Thursday evening.

 To participate in Five Minute Friday, all you have to do is write for five minutes on the word of the week, post your words on your own blog, and link up the post on Kate's blog (via the InLinkz button at the bottom of the post). Be sure to add the actual permalink to your specific post, and not your blog’s homepage (e.g. and not just

Just write.

Also, the most important rule is that you visit the blog of the person who linked up before you and leave some encouragement.  That’s the most fun of all, and the heart of this community.

The word this week is Crave

Well I was craving two things this morning, peace and quiet and chocolate.  Well ok I guess that is three things but you get my drift.

I love being in my house on my own.  I usually get plenty of time to do that but hubby has been home all week (he usually works Wednesday - Fridays) so my routine has been disrupted.  Even more so because he has had a cold.  Just a cold, not flu or anything more serious but it has kept him home.  And under my feet.

This morning however, thankfully he was feeling better, he had an early appointment at the audiology clinic and then he texted me to say he was going on a shopping trip!  Hallelujah.  Peace and quiet to myself.

And as for that other craving?  Well my daughter bought me an advent calendar as a thank you for the help I've been giving her with moving.  But not just any average advent calendar.  A Lindt chocolate advent calendar.  I'm in heaven.  Although I'm a bit worried that my cravings will mean it not lasting until Christmas!

Cravings satisfied - for now!
