Ooops – I missed Monday again. But it was a good day – despite being very tired after the broken sleep at the weekend, I had a good time at knitting group. One of the ladies who I’d driven to Seamills for our day out, had baked me a chocolate cake to say thank you – which was so lovely of her, and she really didn’t have to do that! It is a very delicious cake too – the boys and I really appreciated it last night – and I think at least one of them has appreciated it for breakfast this morning!!
I had a lie-in this morning – only until 9.20, but I really appreciated it.
I have been reading an article on sugar addiction in today’s paper, and the author is suggesting that sugar is absolutely the worst thing to have in your diet – and the side effects of too much sugar include weight gain, inability to lose weight, tiredness and slowed mental faculties – all of which ring true with me. So despite all the sugary loveliness in the house, I am going to start drastically reducing the amount of refined sugar I consume – and that is going to mean no fruit juice, almost no squash, no sweets or cakes etc etc. I am not going to go completely sugar free – but if I can reduce the amount of sugar I consume to a small fraction of what it is now, the odd sweet or cake won’t do me great harm. Big bagfuls of wafer rolls filled with chocolate hazelnut loveliness will do, though – so I shall tell the boys they can eat as much of them as they want – and they will vanish like dew on a sunny day!
