Fandango’s one word challenge today is FIT.
Loads of ways I can think of for that, from clothes that fit one week and don’t the next, fitting into society or the neighbourhood, or the purchase of something for a specific purpose.
At the moment, Hubby’s clothes are hanging off him, but the way he is polishing off cookies, sausage rolls, ice cream, biscuits and today half a pasty, he will soon fill out. Thank goodness for elasticated waists and the baggy look!
Fitting in? For years we lived our lives for other people, trying to fit in with what they wanted and expected of us. We moved away, and found we were still misfits, but it wasn’t us, just the people we had chosen to associate with. That all changed when we bought the boat and became part of a caring community, both on and off the water.
Now we have been back on land for three years, and still ‘fit’ with our neighbourhood.
Haven’t exactly come unstuck with something fit for purpose though. We changed our car for something smaller six years ago, but it has proven too small on a number of occasions.
We’re unable to replace it at the moment, so enjoy the plus side of cheap road tax (£20 per year), cheap insurance (less than £200 for both of us to drive full comprehensive with protected no-claims) and economical to run (58 to 60 mpg).
