Friday letters – busy, busy, busy

Oh, hi! Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few days. Work has been craaazy. To the extent that I was up at 5:30 a.m. today and yesterday so I could go in early and get stuff done. It’s only half an hour earlier than I usually get up, but my “normal” time of 6 a.m., but somehow it just kills me. As I’m sure you can imagine, the weekend is very welcome this week!

Dear boyfriend. Now that your paper deadline has passed, I hope that you’ll be able to spend at least a little less time working so I can spend some time with you!

Dear Newcastle United. I know Yohan Cabaye has been sold, but please don’t panic and forget how to play. The last thing we want is another derby day loss! (Especially considering how far below us the Scum *ahem* Sunderland are in the table).

Dear scales. Your number has been slowly creeping up for a couple of weeks now, but today was the highest weight you’ve shown me since August! I would like to believe you’re lying to me, but in reality I know exactly how much cake, chocolate and clotted cream I’ve been eating recently…

Dear unhealthy food. Why must you be so tasty? Cream, butter and bacon just make meals taste So. Much. Better. Is it any wonder my weight (and waist line) have taken a turn for the worse recently?

Dear godson. The videos that your mother posted on facebook are very cute, but you’re growing up far too fast! What’s with all this walking and saying actual words? I wish I could see you more often…

Dear February. Welcome! I’m hoping you’ll be a more exciting month than your brother, January.

That’s all from me for today. I hope next week I’ll have both the time and the inspiration to keep up with my blog better. Happy weekend, everyone!

  1. Ha, so many of your letters ring true with me, as well! My youngest niece & nephew are 1 and 4 yrs old, respectively, and I wish I could see them more often. And with the very cold weather we’ve been having, carbs and starchy things have definitely been calling out to me, and I’ve overindulged. Fruits and vegetables are great, but just don’t fulfill winter-time cravings!!

    1. I always think “Just this once won’t hurt”, then realise on Friday that “just this once” has happened every day of that week! But how can I say no when people bring cake to work?!

      1. We *just* had homemade cake here at work this afternoon. Luckily, I don’t eat gluten, which means that I am unable to eat most of the snacks and treats co-workers bring in. That just means I bring in my own treats. šŸ™‚ Today: ginger molasses cookies. And dark chocolate pretty much every day.

  2. I find that unhealthy food always tastes better in the Winter. I chalk up winter weight gains to nature. Insulation, right? I’ll keep the Sunderland comment here though….I think that would go down like a lead balloon in my household šŸ™‚ x
