Day 11 (x2)



I'm working from home again today as I have a massive document to read, review and then discuss with our solicitor. It's 88 pages long and v v complex and I'm really not looking forward to it. Honestly, I don't know why I chose the law at times like these, it's not really my thing! I'm much better with real times issues and dealing with people, all this detail work bores me!! I suppose that's why my job at the Council suits me as there is less pure legal work to do and more strategy and advising on the hop.


Anyway, today I'm going to have to suck it up and get it done. I'm starting early so that I can fit in a run if possible. I'd like to do a 6 miler but not sure how much time I will have as I also have my french class this evening. We'll see.


Now today, I don't feel thin!! Why is that? Yesterday I felt noticeably slimmer and today, bloaty. Grrrr. Could it be something to do with the slice of white bread and butter I had last night??? Probably. It's amazing how one transgression can weigh on you both physically and mentally. Physically, I genuinely do feel less "empty" and mentally I feel cheesed off that I weakened and had a slice of bread of all things!


When D is away there is no bread in the house (well, maybe a Burgin's seeded loaf in the freezer but I can ignore that). When he comes back though, there's lovely fresh white crusty bread just sitting on the counter (he could at least put it away!), right next to the butter.....sigh.....


Hope you like the latest pictures of Shelagh and her pups. Little Marvin looks so sweet there doesn't he? Full as a barrel and totally content just lying next to his sister and on his mum's belly. Bliss. They're gaining weight like crazy and no-one tells them off....lucky little blighters....

Hi Peridot - yes, we're keeping the girl. We've finally reached agreement on a name too - Minty! Thought we'd have to bring a UN negotiation team in on that one... You heard it first...

Haha, they're SO SO SO SO adorable! I would get NO work done, I'd be too busy ooh-ing and aah-ing over those little babes!
