I am on the first day of my 3 potential diet danger days - Friday , Saturday and Sunday .......and so far have survived!
It is so cold and dark at the moment and after looking at everyone's snowy Alnwick pictures on Facebook I was feeling a bit sad and nostalgic - thinking about all the fun we had in the snow when growing up and also thinking how my Dad used to keep me up to date on the weather in my hometown.
When Dad died I took away all his old diaries which never disclosed any shocking revelations but, without fail recorded the weather on that day. It was part of his routine and as every true Brit knows, always a good topic of conversation.
So I was feeling a little low and decided to go the local salad bar to get one of their delicious salad boxes. The salad bar is unfortunately situated next to and opposite 2 bakers shops but I ignored them both. I didn't however ignore Pauline, one of the lovely ladies from Slimming World ( or Fat Club as we fondly call it ) as she works in a shoe shop opposite and beside the 2 bakers. I showed her my salad and she showed me an apple . We then had a mutual chuckle about soup spurting out of the pan - 'porn soup' , poo and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!
When I got home and had eaten my salad I texted Pauline to say that I wanted a cream cake and she pointed out that she did too but she had just had a banana and that I must shush as the bakers was only 10 steps away.........now THAT'S what I call willpower!
