A little ditty

I have biscuits in the cupboard,
Ice cream in the fridge,
Chocolate in the kitchen drawer,
All making my taste buds itch…….
Just a little sample,
That’s all that I’ll require,
But I know myself better than that,
And won’t quench my sweet desire.
Once the packet’s open,
There’s no stopping me I’m sure,
Which is why Hubby’s protecting me
By a padlock on the door!
I can’t get in the kitchen
Unless it’s to cook or make tea,
Every move is scrutinised
To save myself from Me……
But next week is my birthday
And our anniversary too,
I’ll cook steak and all the trimmings
To make it a proper ‘do’.
I’m making cheesecake ‘specially,
Trying different cream for a bit
So’s Hubby can hopefully have some
And I won’t have to eat all of it!
Afterwards walks are compulsory
To burn off those extra carbs,
After all, as long as I’m careful,
It shouldn’t be that hard
To lose the few pounds in weight gain
Get back to the grind and book
As by then all the goodies are taken
And all I did was look!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.

    Lol. I can see where your going with this. Haha. I feel the same way. So many goodies, Lol. Good luck with the weight loss!

  3. Haha. I loved this one. Once the packet is open, there’s no stopping me too 😂

    • I have so far resisted the chocolate hobnobs gingernuts and custard creams (2 weeks!) but when I open the digestives for my cheesecake, the ones I don’t use won’t last long.

    I had a flatmate who could not resist chocolate. We’d moan about his thieving and he was contrite but an addict. Once i found half a flake with a note from him ‘i didn’t know whose this was so i only took half’. He was so proud of his self control. Love the poem btw

    • Thanks Geoff. A work colleague could give Hubby a run for the chocolate money as she ate all her grandchildren’s Easter Eggs and the replacements…………. 4 times! Hubby still loves his chocolate but doesn’t have any now because of his digestion problems, so I don’t buy it.
