10 things I learnt today


  1. It takes longer than you think to fold up 92 letters, put 92 stamps on 92 stamped addressed post cards, and put one of each in 92 envelopes
  2. I really ought to have started working on my Performance Management report earlier as my meeting is tomorrow and I have done nothing towards it
  3. Going out to lunch on a Monday with good friends is such a good way to start the week
  4. Quatro Formaggio Pizza Express pizza is absolutely delicious, why haven't I tried it before?
  5. Eating a heavily loaded cheese pizza is possibly not the best idea on the day I have my Rosemary Conley 'weigh in' in the evening - pah!  It's too late now, I've eaten it!
  6. When I am feeling guilty about having eaten said pizza, it is easy to convince me that signing up for a new Zumba class on Wednesday evening is a very good idea
  7. The minute I agree to do a new Zumba class on a Wednesday evening, I regret it but having said yes, my friend Lynda will not let me go back on the deal.
  8. Two slightly aching but much improved hips are not sufficient reason for staying home and watching 'Doc Martin' rather than going to an exercise class
  9. It really is time to put the summer clothes away for another year
  10. The more I turn up the thermostat on the central heating, the more my husband will go out to the hallway and turn it down five minutes later

That's a lot to learn in one day! And #10 happens here as well. I swear DH has a built-in heating/cooling system and is never hot or cold even when all the females in the house are suffering!

I am trying to convince my man that we don't need to have the bedroom windows wide open all night now that the temperature has dropped.

Hope you enjoy the Zumba!...we are not at the stage of having the heating on yet, but I DO have an extra blanket on my bed that I haul up on cooler nights!

Just to let you know that the draw for the Painted Pages over on my blog was redrawn and you are the winner! If you can email me your postal address, it will be with you asap. (I'm hoping I understood right, that you DID want to be in the draw?).

#10 is the other way round in our house, I turn the heat down and tell him to put a jumper on and snuggle under the blanket!

Amy said...

Yep, number 10 happens here too! And, the new series of Doc Martin starts this weekend, really looking forward to that .. he is such a cranky old thing isn't he?!

Sian said...

Yes, I'm always the one turning the thermostat up in this house! Of course now I have to ask - did you have to lick all those envelopes yourself too?

Betting the pizza didn't hurt your weigh in, for me it doesn't show up on the scales until the next day or even the day after. You learnt alot in one day :)

alexa said...

Still trying to contact you about your Painted Pages win - can't find an email for you ...

The pizza is my favourite from Pizza Express! Although I can't eat one of the cheeses on it at the moment :(
