It’s pure brilliant .

How great would it be if you could get fry-ups delivered to your door? Seriously,  how great.



Diets are no funsies

I lost a good bit of weight last spring. Motivated by my fun salsa lessons, I began to actually take care of myself. And eat properly like.

Take-aways were a big no no, especially Chinese and chips. It was a painful separation but my hips and thighs thanked me for it. The compliments I received were quite nice, although, on my more negative days, made me feel like I was a monster beforehand. ‘A fine girl’. Charming.

So when the end of my salsa lessons arrived in July, I was probably nearly two stone lighter than I had been the year before. I was excira and delira and celebrated by piling it all back on as promptly as I could manage. The fact that I swapped the salsa lessons for learning to drive only compounded matters. It meant I finally had an excuse for not walking; I needed the practice of course! Walking’s for losers anyways. Look at all those miserable people at the bus stops, eyeing their watches and mobile phones, wishing the bloody rain would stop because it’s so windy the fecking umbrella won’t stay up.

I digress.

Apparently, if you don’t have any saliva in your mouth, you can’t taste food. Drying your tongue with a paper towel might be a good suggestion but not one for doing in public, I would reckon.

Hmmmmm. Maybe if food was as cute as this, I could resist…..

ETA – This was my 200th post and I didn’t know it. Jaysus, I wish I’d made it a bit more fun now. Bugger.

This was me today

headless chicken

Sorry for the horrible image.

Speaking of chicken, that’s what I had for dinner in l’Gueuleton on Saturday night. Chargrilled cornfed chicken to be specific. Myself and 5 others went there for a meal on the recommendation of one of the couples. Whilst it was lovely… I wasn’t blown away. Especially considering at 6pm, there was a queue of about 50 people waiting outside. Having been forewarned, we left our names in and went to the Market Bar to soak up the atmosphere while we waited. I love the Market Bar. It’s such a great pub for having a good ould natter in.

We got seated in the restaurant about 9. My God that place is French. I couldn’t even see my meal but I had the yummiest white wine to drink. It’s name escapes me now though. I tried one of my friends oysters and I have to say, it was delish especially considering it was my first oyster EVAR. My chicken was tasty indeed, but not quite as exciting as others had said.

To be fair, the prices are extremely reasonable and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely recommend it, but maybe during the week when you wouldn’t have to queue for so long.
