Lessons learned today

  1. The IT guy at work gets it wrong sometimes too (he he he!)
  2. It's still fun trying to do the Guardian crossword with my son via Facebook Chat when he is 150 miles away
  3. It probably isn't a great idea to have a large slice of carrot cake at work on a day when I have my Rosemary Conley weigh-in in the evening
  4. It is no good trying to convince myself that the carrots in said cake are part of my 5 a day and are therefore a healthy option
  5. I have no willpower when it is 11am at work and someone says 'Does anyone want some of my birthday cake?'
  6. Cream cheese in the icing on carrot cake does not contribute to part of my milk allowance for the day
  7. It really is time to put the central heating on in the evenings
  8. No matter what temperature I set the heating onto, my husband will turn it down 2 degrees when he walks past the thermostat as he comes home

I think I'm pretty near turning the heating on in the evenings....but I'm determined to last til October!!!

Yep, I'm wanting the heating on too- and his truly always turns it off just as I turn it on and says'put another jumper on' and birthday cake at work is totally compulsory!:-)

LOL at your carrot cake observations!!!...& I can also identify with a hubby who follows me around turning down thermstats & switching off lamps!!!

Central heating - what's that, unless it's 2 degrees below he insists on sleeping with the windows open! Love your post today Deb.

Now I'm craving carrot cake!

Yes, I'm the only person in this house who ever feels the cold - everyone else will be in a tshirt when I am going to fetch a jumper.

I don't thin birthday cake has any calories, so you are probably ok.

I love that carrot cake can teach you so many lessons :-) See, it was worth having a piece for that reason alone! xx
