I fell into the Instagram coma this morning while having my tea and watching the rain with one eye.... so I'm taking 15 minutes at work to quickly bash this out while I wait for a client to arrive.
1. It's been pouring with rain for two days now and I'm loving it. I love, love, love rain.
What I don't love is getting my laundry dry. Today when I get home I think I'll use the tumble drier for 20 minutes.
Do you have a tumble drier? I first fell in love with these amazing appliances when I was at Rhodes. I was smitten and we had one before we even had a washing machine!
A pity electricity is so expensive otherwise I'd use it more :)
2. Our nanny's sister is very sick so she's gone home to Zim for two weeks.
We are bribing the kids with a weekend treat (movies this week and restaurant for all of us next weekend) to keep them responsible. But it's actually a lot - working, cooking, cleaning, chasing kids, etc. I was pooped last night and I just collapsed with my book.
I realise that Nanny S does way too much for them simply because it's easier for her. However, it doesn't teach them independence.
3. I need to do something about my weight.
I'm not prepared to do banting or other such stuff. I have no insulin resistance - the two dieticians I consulted about this said this is really the only group of people who should bant.
So I guess that means cutting out something.... I suppose carbs at supper is the obvious one but oh my word, carbs are my love language.....
I don't want to lose a lot - 7 kg is enough - but I also don't want to have to radically alter my life :)
Anyone else want to share a few things on their mind?
