As another week passes I can’t help reflect on where the week has gone. Maybe it’s age but time just seems to flash past at a rate of knots.
At least I’ve had the amusement of watching those people who have just returned to work coping with the brain fog that decends causing your memory to fail and your energy drain away. Mine lasted at least three days when I first returned but now I’m needing to turn up the dial as all those things that were kicked into the long grass before the break have crawled back out for attention.
To keep spirits high mid week – and celebrate the arrival of a new manager – we had morning tea, so cake baking was required (thanks Sarah for the Mary Berry Lemon Cake Recipe which was a real hit). I could really get into this baking lark – a few whizzes in the food processor and hey presto instant gratification for those with a sugar deprivation.
Talking of sugar deprivations, we’re on a new eating and drinking regime which means no alcohol Monday to Thursday and more vegetables than you can shake a stick at. I’m also trying the 1 litre of water a day (I know it should be 2 but there is only so much time you can spend going to the bathroom!). Results are good so far but need to keep up the good work and avoid morning teas for a while.
It’s a long weekend this weekend which is a wonderful reprieve – Monday is Wellington Day (mor on that in Monday’s blog) so hopefully we’ll be able to enjoy the Wellington summer for another day. Now that would be a rare treat!
