Wordle #160

This seems an easier mix this week!
Here is the selection:

1. Mundane
2. Neat
3. Vent
4. Spine
5. Wrapper
6. La gaudiere (n.)) the glint of goodness inside people, which you can only find by sloshing them back and forth in your mind until everything dark and gray and common falls away, leaving behind a constellation at the bottom of the pan—a rare element trapped in exposed bedrock, washed there by a storm somewhere upstream.)
7. Nudge
8. Partial
9. Tentative
10. Backwards
11. Oppose
12. Smile

Staring at its mundane outward appearance, she felt a nudge in the base of her spine.
‘Go on then,’ he said, having surprised her with his La gaudiere after months of torment and teasing.
Giving him a backward glance, she opened the door.
A tiny bell tinkled.
Inside, it was incredibly neat and tidy.
Taking a tentative forward step, the delicious aroma of caramel wafted across her nostrils from a vent in the opposing wall.
The proprietor rose from behind the counter, his smile dividing his face almost in half.
‘Ah, Birthday Girl! I was told you are rather partial to my merchandise. Here are samples of everything available. Help yourself to one or as many of each as you wish.’
She felt she’d died and gone to heaven as she wrapped her taste buds round the most exquisite chocolate she was ever likely to savour.
Guilt took a back seat as its Diet driver disappeared in a cloud of sugared cocoa dust.

I’ve decided if I can’t eat the naughty stuff, I’d write about it for

I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hi Di 🙂

    Interesting and fun tale for the wordle 🙂 I agree, if you can’t or shouldn’t indulge, or overindulge in real life, then at least satisfy the mind by writing about it! Hopefully though, it didn’t spark any cravings or persistent feeling of frustration. 😉

    I could smell the caramel wafting – how delicious 🙂 Great use of the wordle …. and definitely a treat to read – but now I’m wanting sweets! LOL – ah well, I’ll just have to eat some fruit instead 😉

    thanks for playing the wordle (kind of filling in for Yves, she might be ‘off’ ahead of schedule, so cheers!)

    • Hello! and thank you for your kind comment! It’s too hot for cravings, and the chocolate I have allowed myself is a jaffa cake cereal bar worth three syns, so well within my limit! As for eating fruit, I’m beginning to ferment!

        LOL – I totally understand about the fruit overload! It’s a poor substitute for the real thing – chocolate and sweets, although I admit, the Jaffa cake cereal bar sounds pretty good. And yup, oh the heat – shouldn’t complain, almost half the year we’re freezing!
