Word of the Week – Crisp

Each Friday, I would like to share a word of the week with you. Something that summarises what I’ve been up to, how I’ve felt and how life is generally going. I’d love if you’d share your own in the comments or even join in with the link up if you are a blogger. (You can find the details at the bottom of this post.) It can be so therapeutic to reflect on what’s been happening, good or bad. It will be nice to look back on these posts in the future too!


This week I have chosen the word Crisp

Please don’t laugh at me for this one. Yes, my word of the week is crisp. Simply because that is all I have been craving. Much to my husbands dismay as he absolutely loves crisps and normally gets away with keeping his stash safe as before pregnancy I was all about the chocolate. Now, no crisp is safe. Well, except from the Aldi version of Doritos. They just don’t taste right!

Every day, at any time. All I want is the salty goodness. Sweet snacks just don’t have my attention any more. I had obviously heard of cravings during pregnancy, but I though they were akin to when you occasionally fancy a certain dinner and then feel really happy once you’ve had it. Oh no no. One bag just will not do!

I’d like to follow this by saying that I am of course staying relatively healthy and not going over board, as much as I’d love to. I’m keeping the diet balanced and making sure fruit and veg are still a regular feature. This paragraph is mostly in case my mum reads this and begins to panic. I have to cover myself!

Food aside, crisp is also the perfect way to describe many of the mornings we’ve had this week. After so many days of very warm sunshine it has definitely been a lot cooler. I can’t say I mind it. We’re at home after all and I’m lucky enough to be comfortable inside and out. I’m also partial to a good blanket so a bit of a chill is always welcome.

  1. I love crisps. I had a craving for bananas during two pregnancies. Used to get up in the middle of the night to eat them. Strawberries for my last one. I was a regular visitor to our local PYO, that summer. There is no picking and choosing what you crave. Totally went off tea and still feel queasy if I smell it. Hope you have a lovely weekend. #wotw

      I’ve just scoffed a whole bowl of strawberries Cheryl…it’s such a shame we can’t go to pick your own this year, I love them! Slightly worried now that I will be off chocolate forever. It’d be good for my waistline but not for easter 😛 #wotw

  2. Oh dear, you’ve just reminded me, My shopping delivery is due soon and I forgot to add crisps! The kids will be disappointed. Personally, I have to really fancy them but I’m partial to cheese and onion flavour. I don’t think I had any pregnancy cravings though.

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Oh no! To be fair Anne, the shops might not have any left with the amount that I’ve been buying. Just tell the kids it’s my fault 😛 They could always try making their own at home…did you order potatoes? #wotw

  3. hehehe! This made me chuckle. This is me every day. I love crisps, probably a little too much. When I was pregnant I had a thing for roast parsnips and mashed potato covered in gravy. x

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      aaaaaand now I want mash potato…haha! It’s so weird that your appetite becomes so specific isn’t it? I wonder what the science is behind it. #wotw

  4. Lol, pregnancy cravings are intense aren’t they? I craved desserts when I was pregnant with Jessica and I had to have them – even if we went out for a curry! I think I might have skipped starters when eating out once or twice and had two desserts instead. Funnily enough as soon as Jessica was born, my sweet tooth instantly vanished. With Sophie it was pork pies and with Thomas it was Bovril. Pregnancy is a funny old thing isn’t it? #WotW

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Haha that’s brilliant, I love that you had different cravings with each one! Also, isn’t it great that you can have two desserts and justify it completely with cravings? 😛 Mike came home with a family sized 30 pack of crisps when he went for our last food shop. I think it’s the most I’ve ever loved him #wotw

  5. I love crisps anytime, and I’ve never been pregnant!! Sour cream and onion, the best!! #WotW

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Haha noone needs a reason to love crisps, they are wonderful! I’m right there with you Enda, sour cream and onion are THE best! #wotw

  6. Enjoy your crisps! With my firstborn, I craved tacos and with my second it was cucumbers and watermelon. Whatever baby wanted, baby got! LOL.

    1. Sunshine and Rain says:

      Well how could you deny the baby tacos?! That would be irresponsible! You’re clearly a very good and responsible Mum Cynthia 😛 #wotw
