The smell of offal and onions permeated through their flat.
She’d read a clip in a magazine on budget recipes and taken a shine to one in particular, but felt her shoulders sag when things did not go exactly to plan.
Bobby had turned the perfect shade of celadon when he realised what she was cooking, and his seat at the table remained vacant as he threw up in the bathroom, his trenchant anger apparent.
She felt abashed at his discomfort, then gave a nervous laugh as she tried to salvage what was left of dinner.

Not sure whether I’ve pulled off number 12 this time.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Ugh – ugh – but not at the writing, but as I mentioned on Michael’s post, (he went in a similar direction) – it’s the (awful) offal meal that has my stomach churning and my head spinning! LOL – but well done and written Di – you’ve used the challenging wordle very well 🙂

    thanks for playing along this week 🙂
