Afternoon all - cottage pie made, veg prepped, oranges, grapefruit and pineapple peeled and sliced and in bowls in the fridge for an easy healthy snack / dessert for when I feel tempted to have something sweet.
Not dieting but just trying to eat a bit healthier after the excesses of the festive season. I am also not doing 'dry January' (which masochist thought this dark, dreary, depressing month would be a good month to banish alcohol altogether?) but I am limiting my alcohol intake for the next few weeks. Might try to do a dry April or give it up for Lent when my spirits are somewhat lifted by the start of spring ..
Sorry to hear your holiday has got off to a bad start on several fronts Hosta - you'll be able to dine out on the tale for months though. Hope things pick up for you both. I have always found Russians to be charming / funny and rude / brusque in equal measure - often in the same person. Different traditions and upbringing I guess. Glad you are able to rise above their antiquated views and unnecessary comments
I love Kizzy too - I'm really more of a moggy than a doggy person - but those eyes - who could resist? - she's just adorable
