BloodiedGhouloshes Thu 24-Oct-13 07:03:35


Plan for today:

B- fruit and yoghurt
L- soup and a salad sandwich
D- spaghetti Bolognese with garlic bread made using half beef mince and half red lentils plus lots of other veg so the DCs are tricked into eating veg! And two glasses of red wine... one for dinner, one after they go to bed. Sigh. I feel tired already!

Hi FRs. smile

I am conducting a self-imposed MN ban. I have managed to waste my whole morning on one of the AF threads when I really ought to be working. Will have to catch up over the weekend now. sad. So, I am banning myself until Monday. I need to engage with RL for a bit!

Hope everyone is fine and well. See you all soon.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Thu 24-Oct-13 15:49:13

Will miss you esteemed leader.
Catch up soon

MillyRules Thu 24-Oct-13 19:08:25

MillyRules Thu 24-Oct-13 19:10:03

Me today
lots of cups of tea
one homebaked maple and honey roast ham sandwich
5 squares of Green and Blacks Butterscotch chocolate (yum)

that's it for today. No appetite really.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Thu 24-Oct-13 19:51:40

milly that's a teeny amount. I do need to cut down on sheer volume of food.
Me today (scoffing really. It is utterly comfort eating)
B: coffee and a cinnamon bagel with flora buttery.
L: cheese on tast with sweet chilli sauce shock, s&v crisps blush and a lemon yogurt
D: spaghetti with pesto, half an avocado, mini magnum.
S/D: one glass Fleurie, 1 chocolate digesive, 1 buttered breadstick, 2 sauté potatoes, teas and coffees
Must try harder.

MillyRules Thu 24-Oct-13 23:23:33

Your food sounds lovely Amanda.
I stopped drinking alcohol this year as a had enough of the really bad headaches that followed within the hour. I used to have to take 2 paracetamol and codeine plus 2 ibuprofen just to deal with it. I thought it would be hard but I don't even think about it now. The pain for me was just not worth it. Ooooo.....I tell a lie.....I did think about it when I saw the new Belgium Baileys and realised I would not be having any but then just as quickly I thought about the headaches and moved on.
I just wasn't that hungry today but will probably eat more tomorrow .

Morning FRs. smile Hope everyone has survived the storm and there is not too much/any damage where you are.

Well, I did quite well with not being on MN.... granted I could not resist, but got myself down to about 30 mins a day.... I need to keep that up.

Food me -

B- nothing
L- carrot soup with home made cornbread
D- roast chicken with pots and green beans and gravy. I am craving bread sauce... but not enough to go out and buy an onion.

Childminder is closed today. Anyone have any ideas what to do with bored DCs? I am thinking of dressing up, doing some finger painting and C-Bleeding Beebies. That will last until lunchtime then. hmm

Hope everyone is fine.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Mon 28-Oct-13 14:50:23

Impressive activities Ghouloshes
Quick update: Fasting. Tired.
Back soon

BloodiedGhouloshes Mon 28-Oct-13 15:18:14

Not really... have just been doing CBeebies to be honest.


TheGhostofAmandaClarke Mon 28-Oct-13 19:26:52

Poor ghouloshes. They are wearing aren't they.
I can't keep up with the little blighters tbh. And omg. The mess thlgrin
So. Fasting ok. I planned to just have tea/ coffes, soup for supper.
I actually had half a slice of French toast with a drizzle of maple syrup (really bad I know but that's what I was making the DCs for lunch.)
Then I had my tomato and lentil soup for supper and half a banana. 3 cups tea with milk, 1 coffee with milk.
That's got to be fewer than 500 calories, surely.
Really would like some sleep
O&D FRs.

Hi All,

What a weekend! Lots of drinking happened but it happened with lovely, lovely friends.

Sunday was amazing. Had 11 friends over with 3 babies. The noise levels were unbelievable. DH cooked a fab chilli (and was thoughtful enough to do mild & hot versions), we served it with nachos (made by moi), potato wedges and loads of bread rolls. Had lots of crisps, olives and nibbles out. My famous G&T granita for dessert which was hailed a success by everyone and lots of alcohol - everyone got slightly tipsy (or rather drunk). Babies were amazing. DH is not great with children but coped amazingly well, he wasn’t bothered by the noise and even got involved (from a distance, admittedly) with playtime. The highlight of the day for me was when one of them refused to say bye to DH, yet happily said “ba-bye” to the fruit bowl thlgrin

Let’s not talk about food. It’s not been good. I’ve put weight on again but I’m trying not to let it take over my life at the moment. I need to get my health sorted (doctors appointment is today) and I need to get my working day back on track rather than staring into space.

BloodiedGhouloshes Tue 29-Oct-13 11:11:05

That sounds like a GREAT weekend Hazel!

I laughed at the saying goodbye to the fruit bowl. grin

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Tue 29-Oct-13 19:36:41

Hi FRs.
Hazel your Sunday sounds great. I'm glad you had a good time. Good luck with the GP.
NFD today: DH cokoked/ chose food.
B: coffee (lots, no sleep recently) croissant, apple.
L: large ham roll, toffee apple (DH bought this for ds but he declined)
D: Chinese chicken dish, fried rice, ice cream.
Drinks/ snacks: tea, coffee, carrot cake blush
Exercise: 3 miles with pram.
Not sure whether to fast tomorrow... Hmmm.

MillyRules Tue 29-Oct-13 23:27:14

Hi internet is down since last weeks storm so using my phone which is not brilliant.
Hazel......what a lovely weekend.
one slice toast with salty welsh butter and Bon Maman Blueberry jam
small portion homemade fresh curry and two poppadoms and glass of celebration Shloer
vanilla real icecream.

Have inserted the Paul McKenna Hypno Band....ooooooo......!!!!!

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Wed 30-Oct-13 07:20:23

milly I hope you get your connection back soon.
Your breaker sounds delicious. grin at "insertion" of hypnoband.

I will be happy if I manage to eat "mindfully" today as I am too tired to consider anything close to a fast, maybe tomorrow.
B: muesli and coffee with gingerbread syrup. (already had)

L: small cheese roll and fruit
D: cheese and ham omlette. Probably with Actifry chips.
Hopefully no snacks apart from fruit.

BloodiedGhouloshes Wed 30-Oct-13 12:30:27

Good morning!

Hope your connection is back soon Milly. How did everyone weather the storm? we had strong gusts here but thankfully no damage.

Me today:

B- 1 orange and a cup of carrot soup
L- baked salmon with a HUGE salad
D- chicken goujons with a HUGE salad.

Am going mad over raw veg at the moment. That ought to be good! (Will not discuss the Caesar dressing....)

Hazelbrowneyes Wed 30-Oct-13 18:03:23

On sofa, pjs on, dressing gown on, snuggled in to duvet & I'm still shivering.

I've got a cold, reflux & gastro (for the second time in a week)

I've eaten
1 mini bag of Haribo for some sugar
1 small bowl plain boiled rice

Will have the same tonight, if I can stomach it. Am missing out on dinner with lovely friends so I'm feeling v.sorry for myself sad

MillyRules Wed 30-Oct-13 19:05:35

Poor you gastro doing the rounds or something.....a few people seem to have it....on the plus will lose some weight lol grin grin

Hazelbrowneyes Wed 30-Oct-13 19:45:10

It's doing the rounds here, definitely. Ha, Milly can you believe after last weeks bout I put ON 3lbs?! So unfair! grin

MillyRules Wed 30-Oct-13 20:05:21

O how bloody unfair Hazel.

BloodiedGhouloshes Wed 30-Oct-13 23:04:50

Gastro is doing the rounds here too. Am hoping ti will hit us in time to allow us to avoid a family function this weekend.

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Thu 31-Oct-13 06:16:05

Hazel twice? brew

TheGhostofAmandaClarke Thu 31-Oct-13 06:38:11

thanks for Hazel
Fasting today. DH will make spag Bol for the rest of them thlenvy

Hazelbrowneyes Thu 31-Oct-13 09:06:05

Thanks Amanda have dragged myself into work but I'm snapping at DH and staff as I'm feeling so poorly.

Am left with a stinking cold and sore throat. I really didn't want to come in today but it's the end of the month & lots to do.

Last night I had a mini bag of haribo & half a slice of toast with some beans. Was all I could manage. Haven't eaten yet today. I have sandwiches with me but I doubt I'll eat them. I can't stomach the thought of food still.

DH said he knew I was properly ill when I turned down the offer of Chinese takeaway.

Ghouloshes I'll breathe in your direction, hopefully it'll strike in time grin

Oh! saw my hot GP. He's not worried about it being an ulcer, he's sure it's just a nasty bout of reflux and has prescribed me some gaviscon advance stuff. If that doesn't work then he'll prescribe something harsher. He noted down the stress I'm going through and he's advised me to cut down alcohol (although he wasn't at all bothered by the amount I do drink), cut out spicy foods (was pretty shocked when I told him how often I eat spicy food blush) and avoid tea & coffee.

Of course, I felt so crap yesterday that I couldn't make it down to the chemist but my lovely friend offered to grab some for me - he could only get normal gaviscon (felt a bit rude to ask him to come up, get my prescription, walk down, wait for it, then walk back up) but that helped a lot yesterday.
