12/31 Guilty Pleasures

A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guiltfor enjoying it. The "guilt" involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one's lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, such as campy styles of entertainment. Fashion,video games, bachata[disambiguation needed], music, theatre, television series,[1] films,[2] junk food and fetishes can be examples of guilty pleasures.[3]

I had to google it so I was 100% sure I was barking up the right tree. I don't like using the work guilty, it makes the think of criminals. I prefer the word naughty. Naughty pleasures or wrong pleasure!

So my 3 naughty pleasures are

Food.... I have all sorts of naughty food that when I eat, I feel bad! Like pot noodles. Pot noodle with a crusty, buttered roll to dip in. Dirty food!!! Food of the 80's. That was a wrong time for food. Super noodles, Crispy Pancakes,

Even posh food was wrong. A few years ago I was challenged to do a 80's themed dinner party. I had to do some research into what this would intale as I don't remember Mum and Dad doing much entertaining in the 80's apart from their legendaryTrivial Pursuit nights and they would just serve peanuts, salted crisps and if the were pushing the boat out, Twiglets. So, after completing my research I discovered that the best people served were a prawn cocktail for starters, chicken Kiev and chips for main and trifle for dessert.

Another naughty food I love is fish fingers. At lunch time, fish finger sandwich and dinner time, fish fingers, homemade potato wedges and tinned spaghetti hoops smothered in vinegar and brown sauce.

Next is

Naps or horizontal life pauses. Oohhhhhhh the thought of laying on my bed in the middle of the day, nestling my head between the millions of cushions that serve no purpose but for this moment and clutching my teddy. Then just drifting off...

Last but defiantly not least.....

Picking my nose. There we go, I've said it!

I'm with you on the food...I still grab the occasional pot noodle and oh how posh we felt to have a prawn cocktail LOL.

The nap thing is a no-brainer I could do that all the time - if I had the time. Even snuggling up on the sofa with cushions and a throw feels so naughty but isn't it great.

I think you can keep the last one Nina...giggle.
