Welcome to my Take Seven compilation which incorporates all 21 words (or derivatives) from the Three Things Challenge for the past week.
You are most welcome to join in using as many or all of the words too. Just pingback to this post and then leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can see it and respond directly.
As always, have fun, and I hope you enjoy this week’s effort.
Our words were:
avoid, bad, before, buy, effective, envelope, evening, longer, much, offer, own, plenty, post, problem, replace, rush, same, smug, temptation, tucked, well.
They were on special offer, 3 for £10, so she bought them for her grandchildren. However, Easter was well over two months away and after a particularly bad week at work, she thought she’d have one then replace it. Except it didn’t work out like that and she ended up eating all three.
Not a problem, she told herself. I’ll buy some more tomorrow.
The special offer was no longer available, but she bought three more expensive eggs and tucked them away for the holidays.
It was another bad week, and the replacement eggs went the same way as the first three.
This time when shopping, she bought six eggs, feeling quite smug with herself as if she fancied one now, there was no need to feel guilty and rush out to buy some more.
Before she knew it, those six were soon gone, and she was back in the supermarket buying more, plus a bigger a dress size.
She loved chocolate, so thought she’d buy eggs that she didn’t like so much, and put them at the very back of the cupboard to avoid temptation.
That didn’t work either, and she ate those too.
Easter was now a week away, and she had no eggs. There were still plenty available to purchase, but she knew that if she bought any, she’d eat them all.
That evening, she had a phone call to say the kids were poorly and they wouldn’t be visiting afterall.
Next day, she stuffed a tenner into an envelope and posted it off thinking
‘Let them buy their own eggs. It’s safer and more cost effective!’
