Bridget Jones

J has to write an English 'A' level homework in the style of Bridget Jones diary. Here's mine.
Weight: 8st 10 3/4 lbs. Hurrah.
Waist: Back up to 33". Boo.
Diet: Muesli,weetabix, tea, toast, boiled egg, more toast, macaroni cheese, ham, baked beans, sweetcorn, salad, no sugar apple& raisin cake baked by Ruth (yum, thanks Ruth), apple juice, apple, eccles cake (felt a bit queasy after that - 9% butter plus vegetable fat), local butcher's pork and apple burger, (lots of apple today) roast parsnip, mash potato, fromage frais, cornflakes.
Exercise: Walked 1/4 mile to the paper shop and back. Hurrah
Activity: Karen has introduced us to Sudoku and T wanted the Guardian to try the next level, hence the walk.
Completed 2 and 1/4 of my NVQ level 3 workbooks. Hurrah. Still have 1 3/4 to go. Boo.

Riverford Organics www.riverford.co.uk deliver a box of English apples, parsnips and carrots plus oranges, bananas and a large melon. They taste so much better than supermarket varieties. We don't eat enough English apples and orchards are in decline but this year's weather has produced particularly sweet fruit. Tempt J away from donuts to a lovely juicy orange as an after school energy boost. For someone claiming not to like 'bits' in juice he concentrates hard on squeezing every last drop from the orange halves.
