Sugar

Sugar is highly addictive. 

I eat it when feeling depressed. 

Maybe it's just a coincidence 

that desserts spelt backwards is stressed.

      Jazz for me.

        Jazz and classical for me, I go to a jazz club every month and I used to play in a swing band, great fun.

        'You'll get your just desserts', they said to me, as in 'What goes around, comes around'.
        Yep, I got those desserts - strawberries and ice cream and jelly! lol.

          Sounds like you're well prepared for Wimbledon fortnight.

            I've gone off sugary things somewhat. Some are surprised when I can't face a chunk of a chocolate bar.

            That last line! Really. We have gone on a no sugar diet over a month now. Of course there are cheat days but none of the sugar spiking. Thanks for sharing.

            I'm off sugar too. Bad for the gut.

            It started simple and ended with a mind blowing fact! Love this! You capture such a wide area with few lines! Splendid!

                  Yet another smile of recognition, thank you! Except that I don't eat sugar in its pure form but disguise it as honey, chocolate, even dried fruit. All rather good for stress I think.

                  • Blueledge

                    I'm trying to cut it out Morwenna. It really is bad for us.
                    Easier said than done. It's in almost every food we buy in some form.
