I was so tired this morning when I woke up. I thought I would be as I did not do much relaxing this weekend but I did not anticipate being so sore. My legs and back ached so much from walking up and down so many flights of stairs so many times this weekend. I definitely need to do far more exercise next year so that is one of my resolutions for the New Year.
I think work should consider themselves rather blessed to be graced by my presence today. I was so tired I could easily have slept on, for another 10 hours or so.
But no, I was up and at it. Neither bright nor so early as usual but I was still in just after 8am. The Shard looked slightly mystical in its shroud of pink cloud. As seen from Waterloo East station. I went for a stroll and a shop at lunch time with my namesake colleague. She suggested Tsuru which I had never been to before. I was slightly tempted by the Sushi but decided instead to go for something hotter. I like this part of London very much. It was quite mild today and I would have enjoyed sitting in one of the deck chairs under an orange blanket. I may have been stuck in the deckchair; they can be tricky to negotiate at the best of times and with sore back and legs, impossible so just as well we didn’t have time. Back at work I enjoyed the Miso. But I did gag slightly at the very firm and slimy green stuff. Some kind of seaweed I assume so I ate it and tried to think of the goodness in it. I hope there was some goodness as it tasted vile. I chose the chicken Teryaki from Tsuru. It was served with pickled vegetables which were lovely. And far too much white rice. It tasted good and was a lovely consistency but I felt a bit blobby after all that white carbs.
Sadly not so blobby I didn’t go on to eat 2 very large cookies later. Plus I had 2 lattes today. It is difficult to keep on track when you work in a large office. You are surrounded by people who eat sweet things and it is often someones birthday, leaving do, recovery from the night before or other such event which seems to necessitate large boxes of doughnuts/chocolates/cakes which are offered round. I shouldn’t use it as an excuse as I did manage 2 months with no sugar but today I was very tired and weak!Despite a snooze on the train I remained tired back at home so we had a very simple supper. This little lot fed myself and Harvey; one packet of prawns and 1 large tomato shared between us and 1 pitta bread each. I threw away the mayonnaise when I removed sugar from the house. I intended to make some but the first lot I made was inedible and I have never had another go. Harvey has really missed mayonnaise in sandwiches as he can’t eat butter and I refuse to buy margarine. So we tried this tonight and it was ok. A very quick and easy supper.
Off to bed any minute now!
