    At 90, you've earned it!

    • Big meeting day. Catering. Grazed all day - primal, but woah...cheese, dried fruit.
      B: yoghurt, banana, coffee
      L: see above
      D: pumpkin mash and broccoli

      Not much in the way of walking - had to stick around at lunch - but went up and down a fair few stairs today.

      DRY FRIDAY - I declared today love your liver day.
      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

          I googled cirrhosis pictures last night - very sobering. I was dry for the best part of a year a few years back - and obviously was very restricted when preg and heavily breastfeeding... It's been creeping back up and up recently though, so worth cutting back a bit.

          I waggled weights last night and am rather sore today.

            I'm no tee-totaler, by any stretch of the imagination.... In my younger years I went and got polluted on an almost nightly basis. Being young, dumb and much more quick to recover, I could deal with it easier. I just find that it has less of an attraction to me as I get older.. and the hangovers hurt alot more... oy-vey! That being said, I enjoy a good beer with some barbecue, or if my kids come over for a visit, I will imbibe a few, but it is an infrequent occurance....... and the wife does't like me much when I am deep in me cups, so to keep the peace/piece, I forgo the cups and the pain that goes with them...

            Congrats on the soreness from the weight waggeling..

              I'm 36. I drink differently than I used to and very much of my age group and social class in that I mainly drink at home these days. I think I - possibly - drink more than I did in my truly poor student days, although that's a tough call to make as my 'binges' are smaller, but more frequent. Certainly my ability to function with a hangover is much reduced. I am, though, open about how uneasy my thirst makes me. I could so easily become an alcoholic. I enjoy irish coffee breakfasts, wine with lunch, g&t before dinner, wine with dinner, a coffee and liqueur or two... I try not to do all of these every day! Dry days are important. I track my weekly intake and try to moderate it. But, lordy, I do appreciate a drink.

                    • Today I am mostly spring cleaning, given it is a warm and windy day and the house can air thoroughly while I pull out pieces of furniture, wash walls, vacuum and generally move through the place like a whirling dervish. Husband, having grown up with hoarders, cannot grasp the concept of spring cleaning and has to bite his tongue - in previous years he has accused me of OCD...no, husband, cleaning is NORMAL.

                        • Walked around the city for a couple of hours today - had breakfast at a fancy-pants hotel (gift from aunt for my birthday - birthday was in March...) with husband and then wandered around. We looked in lots of shops and I so nearly bought a green leather skirt to match our sofa...

                          But sense won and I left it in the shop. It was sooo soft, like butter, and heavily discounted. But. But. Got Christmas stocking fillers for the small boy.

                          B: coffee, tablespoon of p'nut butter
                          B2: fruits (strawberries, macerated dried fruits, fruit compote etc) and yoghurt x 2 bowls (oink) and a cooked breakfast of eggs, bacon, tomato and mushrooms (oink, oink)
                          D: chicken, bacon, leeks, cream; beetroot and carrot salad

                          ETA changed my mind about dinner...
                          D: steak! beetroot and carrot salad, broc with soy and sesame seeds

                            Chicken and bacon to steak, sounds like a reasonable mind change, saying that both meals sound pretty good to me!

                            And the colours for they batiks are wowza.

                            • B: two eggs scrambled with butter (making yoghurt is on the to-do list for the weekend), coffee, three dates (had these at work)
                              L: chicken, bacon, leeks and cream, leftover broc from last night; spinach, parmesan and pine nut salad, about a one-inch chunk of poached salmon
                              D: pan-fried pork, leftover carrot and beetroot, raw spinach, pineapple ring, new batch of broc (seriously, who doesn't love broccoli! heehee)

                              The government agency is at the workplace this week for back-to-back meetings to check that we really should/can do what we say we do... Doctors and professors all over the place. CEO looks scared. Happy days. Also, molto, molto catering. I have packed a green salad for lunch tomorrow.

                                The scariest words one can hear are "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help"..... they may be from the government, but they are rarely helpful...
