  • Baggy trousers

    Attention NHS purse-string-holders: I wanna start getting paid for these blog entries. What do you say to a quid a word? Actually, call it a fiver. I need cash, you see – and lot's of it! New, smaller attire won't be stuffed into my wardrobe by effortlessly stylish pixies (more's the pity; I don't care for clothes shopping, and...

    After what seemed like forever, I reached Easter - my self-appointed diet break. Over 4 days I have thoroughly enjoyed every single hot cross bun, cupcake, piece of chocolate, glass of champagne, cocktail, tub of ice cream and slab of cheesecake... etc etc etc. And I do not feel one bit guilty, surprisingly.
