aibu to think this is a major perk of being one? where no-one else can see you doing it? and no-one can ask for some?

I have just melted 20g of Luscious Orange Willies Cacao chocolate in a ramekin and then dipped a banana into it and ate the lot. Chocolate all warm and runny and then solidifying and sticking to teeth

This is what it is all about and only 3 weightwatchers points

This is the life wink

Well, I had nice, long workout at the gym this morning, so now feel less guilty about that huge amount of chocolate icecream I had yesterday.

One thing, I will NOT do is watch daytime television. I'd rather listen to the radio, much more interesting.

Oh ice cream I forgot I had ice cream!!

sorry to be rude but (unless you have money to burn or just can't) why wouldnt you work?? I don't really see why sitting around eating is something to be proud of?

<sigh>

I'm a SAHM to two preschoolers, my eldest starts school in September and my youngest will be in preschool for her 15 provided hours, I am really looking forward to those 15 hours grin

I won't look for a job until the youngest has gone into year 1, so when my youngest is in reception I will be a SAHM to two at school, again I can't wait.
We are assuming that I will look for work the September the youngest starts Yr1, but in all honesty if we are ok money wise I might even stay off a little longer. It makes for a relaxed house, it lets DH work and travel for work without any worry about childcare, I'm always around to do the errands and things that need doing, it suits us all.

Looking forward to some lobster bisque grin
