Good morning,was your weekend a good one? Mine was not that great, the blooming rain is past a joke, I am craving sunshine,after much debate John decided to come to my friends Sister’s Birthday party,he may as well stayed at home to be honest because it was obvious,much to my embarrassment, he did not want to be there, he only spoke when spoken to and was generally for want of a better word a pratt. He looked at his watch almost every ten minutes and asked we could go even before 10pm, the party was on until midnight so I just go up and danced with friend’s and ignored him until around 11.30 which pissed him off somewhat so I gave in and I said my goodbye’s and we left. We had a “discussion” on the way home and I was not in the best mood. I stayed up until 1.30 and then stayed in bed on Sunday until 10.52 which is unheard of as I always toss and turn and wake up during the night,I can’t blame booze as i only had two drinks,he knew I was annoyed and gave me lots of excuses for his actions, to be honest it was my own fault because I knew he didn’t want to go but these people are my closest friend’s family and I have grown up with them,one brother was coming from Tenerife to be there, I did not want to go alone and have to make feeble excuses for John not being there so I said you are going and that was that. As a new vegetarian(I do eat fish for now) I was worried about the food at the party so I had some homemade humus and celery before we left and around half eight at the party I had salad,egg mayo sandwich and two onion bahjis so that was ok.
I survived my first social occasion as a vegetarian and it feels so good. I also weighed in today and I have lost 1lb, I am aiming to lose 1-2lbs a week so that is great,I am on a massive learning curve and veggie does not automatically mean low fat so I have to be careful.
When I emerged from my bed at 10.52 on Sunday morning I was all behind and had to play catch up, I had a rushed breakfast of avacado on toast and two cups of coffee I set about my housework,washing and cooking, I cooked chicken for John for lunch which was ok because he is not a vegetarian and I am fine with that ,although he did say he would cut out meat a few times a week and see how he got on. I had salmon,roast potatoes,carrots,sprouts and green beans and I really enjoyed it.I put some washing away and sat and watched some catch up TV and then we went to visit my parent’s,when we came home we had soup and a sandwich and I got on with getting things ready for today,I made John’s lunch and put it in the fridge,I had planned on doing some ironing but I didn’t feel like it so I sat and read my book. I am reading The Woman Who Stole My Life by Marian Keyes, I am only a few chapters in but am enjoying it, one of my goals for this year is to get back into reading and my aim is for one book a month which is of course do-able I could read a book in a few days when I was into my reading and If I manage more then that is a bonus. I like real books I have the Kindle App on my tablet and I have a few books on there but am not that into it really. I had a restless night but I have vertigo and am going through the menopause and these are symptoms of that.So that was my weekend,how was yours? comment below and leave a link to your blog too as I am always looking for some new blogs to read.
Thanks for reading my post,I hope to see you next time.
