After reading Lynette and Shayne's blogs today, I saw that they revealed some of their guilty pleasures. . .
I thought that I should play along; ) so what is a guilty pleasure??
We seem to use this phrase a lot these days. It's an odd one if you think about it, since "guilt" really means a sense or awareness of doing wrong, whereas "pleasure" means a sensation of happiness, enjoyment etc.We tend to use the phrase a bit jokingly, to talk about quite trivial things. For instance, someone who is on a strict diet
might feel a guilty pleasure in eating a big cake: pleasure in eating the cake, but guilty because she (it's usually a she in this case) has not been strict with herself and stuck to her regime - she feels she's been weak.Some religious communities such as the 17th century Puritans have come close to saying that almost all pleasure is guilty - if you're enjoying yourself too much, then your mind is on earth and not heaven. However, not many people would go as far as that.
Ok, just a little something i got to describe a guilty pleasure. With no further ado,here is mine:
Anything, that is, should it be grocery shopping, shoe shopping, or just bread and milk at the Kwikshop, I LOVE SHOPPING.
I LOVE my Spinning classes, in the mornings there is actually nothing to feel guilty about, because it is in my own time, but I need to do at least 2 classes a day, so in the afternoons, when hubby is back from work, I really do feel guilty to leave him alone for that hour, he loves spending time with us in the afternoons.
I think most of us, following each other's blog,enjoys this pleasure, because we seem to have the same interests at heart:)
I don't need to shop at these lovely shops, just to walk around in them seeing what they do, what they create and sell. So whenever we decide to go away somewhere, I go on the Internet, to seek different shops in that particular area, i then go and add their addresses in the GPS, so when we reach our destination, i just press the button for hubby and then he must take me there.LOL!! He knows by now, that at some stage, where ever, we WILL visit a Scrap booking shop.
I keep making these fake promises to myself, actually just putting pressure on myself in NOT buying them anymore, but I cannot stop, I buy a lot of magazines.
I buy the following:
Shape, Womans Health(new), Sarie, Rooi Rose, Ideas, Garden and Home, Food and Home,Fitness, Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapping en Kie, I subscribe on ScrapbookTrends, Finesse and whenever a cover attracts my attention, i buy it!!
Well,this is where i met you all,hey??
I love it, just reading and reading and seeing what other people have to say and yes Lynette, I also watch the gate, then i just push the computer under the table, next to where I usually sit.LOL!! I am waiting for the day, when he will walks in and then pick it up, then he would feel that it is actually overheating!!LOL!!
Creme Brule and Sweets
I must admit, I DO NOT like chocolates. Ok, it might sound weird, but no, i do not eat a lot of that, BUT sweets, like Jelly Babies, Fizzers, Jelly Eggs, those i like and I do eat sweets everyday!!! And by now, you know that I LOVE Creme Brule,whether it is homemade or bought at Woolies, I do indulge in that sometimes:)
So there it is,MY GUILTY PLEASURES!!
