F4Thought #130 - 2019 in a Nutshell

2019 in a nutshell
#F4Thought #130 - 2019 in a Nutshell ~ Did you complete your 2019 goals? Is there something that you are particularly proud of from 2019? What were your most popular blogging posts of the year?

Reading through your Catch Up posts made me realise what great topics we have covered over the last 6 months. Please message Floss or me with any suggestions you have for future prompts.


Spotlight Post for #129  catch up by May More


I knew almost as soon as I started read Miss Scarlet's post for the MeToo topic that I was going to relate to it and I was right. I felt so apprehensive on Miss Scarlet's behalf as she set the scene and took me step by step though her ordeal. 

We went through the stile and immediately we got to the other side I felt him try to grab my hand.  I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t want to alarm him and put myself in more danger and I didn’t want to panic, so I just moved my hand  right behind my back and just walked as fast as I could. He kept up with me and said, ‘ we will have to arrange to meet here every day.’  READ MORE

F4Thought #129 - Catch Up & Further Thoughts

Catch up and Further Thoughts #F4Thought
#F4Thought #129 Catch Up and Further Thoughts

As the festive season approaches we are all slowing down a little, or in some cases getting busier with family, or in my (Floss) case, work becomes the busiest it will be all year. So we are grateful for anyone who pitches up and shares their work with us for F4T whilst you have so many other things going on. I personally did write a post for last week’s prompt, but just didn’t get to share it in time, luckily that will be remedied soon though with this week’s prompt. 

Spotlight Post #128 by Floss

This week’s spotlight post was first in the link-up for our topic of lies and while it was hosted on May’s site, it was actually penned by her partner Inigo More. I must admit in part I’ve picked this for the spotlight post, not only for my own reasons but for people’s reactions to it. I think it for sure would have been the people’s choice too. I think the honesty surrounding a decision that perhaps isn’t one we are used to hearing and the explanation behind his reasoning and how things have moved forward for him since that moment meant we were all moved by Inigo’s post and I am thoroughly grateful he shared his story with us. 

‘Having assured me she was using the contraceptive pill, my girlfriend had in fact lied. And for several weeks had been doing no such thing. She decided that becoming pregnant was a good idea. Arrived at this conclusion entirely in her own mind, making no attempt to discuss the subject with me. The relationship itself was already foundering and I don’t doubt that played a part in her rather desperate actions.’ Read More …

#F4T Chef List 2019

#F4T Chef List 2019

To be a Food for Thought Chef you need to put your thinking hat on regularly. And turn mere words into a gourmet delight.

In my opinion those who eat well, think well.

Floss and I love that Food for Thought is a thinking meme. Always remember good food feeds the brain.

And without further ado I will give you the #F4T Chefs of 2019

F4Thought #128 - Lies

#F4Thought #128 - Lies -
How old were you when you first realised Santa was a lie?
What are white lies?
Thank you all who entered into Bucket Lists for last weeks prompts. It was great reading them and I also got a few ideas of things I would like to do in the future.

Spotlight Post #127 by Liz Black

When you think of bucket lists, you often think about bungee-jumping or holidays far away. What struck me with the entries this week, was how practical and close to home our wishes were. Many of us have seen the darker side of life and know it's futile to aim for the stars when all can be changed tomorrow. I chose Sweetgirl's post as Spotlight post this week because she talks about wishes and how feasible they are, or aren't. Despite her setbacks, she still has dreams and desires. I hope for her, and for all of us, our dreams will come true in 2020!

Quote: “I don’t really have lists of what I want to do, I gave up on them after my dad died. What is the point of making lists and plans when they can be taken from you at the drop of a hat? So I can’t really do a bucket list. I believe if you want to do something bad enough don’t ever wait, you’re not guaranteed tomorrow. Instead I am going to do a wish list.” READ MORE...

Bucket List ~ Guest Post

My Bucket List

Well I guess I had to pen something as this theme was my idea.  I have been incredibly lucky because in my real life I have pretty much done most things I want to do; I’ve met some amazing people, been to many amazing places and done lots of fabulous things.  I’ve enjoyed a truly fantastic career, too.

F4Thought #127 - Bucket Lists

Bucket Lists #F4Thought
#F4Thought #127 Bucket Lists
It is no surprise that books got us all talking. I absolutely loved reading about everyone’s first experiences with reading and what books they hold dear to them. Some of them really tugged at my heartstrings and others had me heading straight to amazon to add them to my reading list. However, my favourite is not relevant because the wonderful Molly of Mollysdailykiss fame chose the spotlight post for us this week. 

Spotlight Post #126 by @Mollysdailykiss

I love books and I love reading and so I was delighted when May asked me to pick the spotlight post this week. I read them all and came away with a few possible books to add to my collection but one of the posts stood out to me more than the others because of how similar it was to how I feel about books and reading. Floss's post almost feels a bit like a love letter to books and I have a feeling like me, she could have easily written another 1000 words on this subject and written a much longer list of books she loves.

‘All this to say, I couldn’t possibly pick one book, there are so many books that have moved me, excited me, enthralled me and whisked me away on adventures as I read them. I read for the same reason I write … feeling. I write in the hopes I will make people feel something, and I read to feel too. If a book doesn’t stir something up inside me then it isn’t a book for me.’ Read More …

F4Thought #126 - One Book

#F4Thought #126 - One Book ~ What do books mean to you?
We all love to indulge and it was fun reading about how indulgence and vice are viewed by you guys. We always appreciate the support you give us by linking up to the meme.

Spotlight Post #125 by May More

My man entered the meme this week over on his new blog with a great post and Melody also pushed my indulgence buttons. But the one that I really kept thinking about is from the previous host of Food for Thought – Kilted Wookie. He wrote so openly about his feelings regarding cunnilingus. So personal and so inspiring. I hated this act when I was younger. It really takes someone who shows they love it, to make the difference. And KW is that person in this post.

“So combined with taste is the scent of her; so impossible to avoid breathing in as my tongue explores every fold of her cunt. Then there are the sounds she makes as my tongue works it magic” READ MORE...

I recommend it!
