Morning all! Stealing half an hour of peace (my school group are exploring on their own) and taking the chance to sneak in and say hello.
I've decided to dig out my 5:2 diet book and do something about my
a) rather overly cuddly belly
b) increased family risk of diabetes
Today is my first fasting day. Has anyone else done 5:2? I did it before (when it first came out) and felt great, but I found (oddly you'd imagine) that come my feast days I... didn't really feel hungry! You expect to be famished but I struggled to eat enough (yes I admit to get my calories up I could snack on a chocolate brownie but I'm not really sure thats in the right spirit of things!) Perhaps when spring starts to make its appearance more work in the garden might help boost my appetite.
This year his lordship mentioned the garden was looking a mess. I can't disagree with him. But it matches the house so nicely (electrics SHOULD be going in soon.... haven't I said that before?) I still haven't finalised my plans for the garden, I keep changing my mind. I'm currently thinking about triangle shaped vegetable beds to make more of a visual statement (until the garage is built they will be on view from the house) and also avoid any having to stretch over long distances. I think tomorrow (yay weekend) I might get a spray can out if it is dry and mark out some beds on the lawn and see how they look.
It might at least prevent his lordship from mentioning the state of the place if he realises that he is my apprentice digger!
Keep safe everyone. I better get back out there and patrol the corridors of the museum. It is so strangle quiet with such a small group in today!
