As you can see Marie also agreed to choose the spotlight post. But because we had so many entries there is a spotlight three and you can find it here.

#F4Thought #131 Roundup - Intimacy - by Marie Rebel
I think both Floss and I were very pleased when Marie agreed to do the spotlight three for her prompt suggestion of intimacy. It could not have been an easy task. We had 28 entries and all were particularly good. Here is Marie's RoundUp.

The turn out for our 2019 in a Nutshell prompt was fantastic, it fell to me (Floss) to do the spotlight three, because that’s our number when we get over 20 links and I will be revealing them in a moment. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts on the past year though, you all shared some amazing thoughts and myself and May absolutely hope we see more of you return to F4Thought in 2020. 

Spotlight Posts #130 by Floss 

In a Nutshell by Eye - I defy anyone to read any of Eye’s posts and not fall in love with her writing. She has such a beautiful way of composing her posts and this one was no different. I loved her reflections on 2019 and I can’t wait to see what she shares with us in 2020. 

Reflecting and Looking Forward by Zoe K - I could relate to the need to find some quiet time away from the constant buzzing that many of us have in our brains, we all have our own methods of finding the quiet and I very much enjoyed reading about how Zoe is finding her hers. 

Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020 by Little Switch Bitch - This is perhaps a tactical inclusion. I love reading posts from LSB that share her personal thoughts a little more and this one was no different and I know this is something she hopes to do more of in 2020, because it says so in her post, but a little extra encouragement never hurts, right?

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 …
