Well, Friday wasn’t the best day ever. I demonstrated my mile-wide streak of neurotic childishness and ended up virtually in tears over the whole ‘lime-scale on shower cubicle’ thing. (For context – the shower in question is in the rental house we’re finally handing over on Wednesday, and we had to put down a whopping deposit which on Friday I was convinced we wouldn’t get back due to my poor housekeeping) Fortunately M is actually sane, and talked me down from the cliff edge… Then we carried lots of weights around and did various other bits of rearranging and I did something so horrible to my back that I spent yesterday either flat on said back or very very slowly climbing stairs / bending over with loud groans and frequent pill popping. With some (not too terrible) comfort eating. And its hard to write blog posts when horizontal, so I didn’t. We did however watch a movie in the afternoon – ‘We Need to Talk about Kevin’. I’m probably way behind everyone else on the planet watching this as usual, but it was excellent – so interesting I’m almost burned the potatoes for dinner !!! Tilda Swinton is so good as the mother, and the actor playing Kevin is really chilling – I’ll be downloading the book soon, particularly as the reviews on Amazon say the book is better than the movie.
Also, I’m constipated, so the scales are going up but I don’t want to take a pill for it unless it gets really uncomfortable as I took one last week for no better reason than I regretted eating some cake.
Breakfast: All bran with raisins (all bran – why have you stopped working for me???? Maybe I need a break, I keep forgetting its wheat bran and gluten intolerance can lead to constipation – but its hard to stop eating it when that’s already your problem)
Lunch: Home-made spinach pea soup, finally finishing off the toxic looking green sludge which I promise tasted much better than it looked…
Dinner: Spinach & mushroom risotto topped with a soft poached egg and served with a miniscule salad. This was lovely despite my forgetting to add any soft cheese / crème fraiche or whatever to the risotto as I normally would)
Snacks: Fage 0% (run out now, hmph), a dark chocolate bounty bar
Lunch: Basil tofu, tomato & red onion marmalade sandwich
Dinner: Roast dinner with beef brisket slow cooked and roast potato, carrot & broccoli
Snacks: Greek yoghurt, 2 alpro dark chocolate soy puddings, some chicken slices, raisins, peanut butter…
