So far today

Today I have a day working at home. So far I've written about children and allergies, and chocolate brownies, and I'm just working through Romanian wine. There are two big problems when I'm working at home:
1) George;
2) George - no, that's not fair - food.

1) I have to keep getting up to: let George out - he's very not tired today; see what George is doing that he shouldn't be; following George round the garden; bringing him back when he escapes; running to fetch the camera because George is doing something cute (and naughty) etc.

2) Getting up for George means I have to go through the kitchen and that means I think about food. So far today I have eaten, in reverse order, 1 yogurt, half a bag of grapes, a slice of melon, 1 nectarine, 1 banana, 1 bowl of Frosties, several handfuls of Frosties, 1 plum, 1 bowl of Bran Flakes. See how healthy I am?! And how I cannot be losing weight when I spend so much time on the loo I don't know.
And I wonder why it takes me so long to write anything. Oh, yes, I should have added blogging as my number 3 distraction.

Only one slice of melon? I think I would have eaten the whole thing and yes - I adore Bran Flakes!

I followed a link from somewhere and found myself here.

"....See how healthy I am?! And how I cannot be losing weight when I spent so much time on the loo I don't know."
made me laugh so much because I so know the feeling!

George is gorgeous - Gorgeous George - even if he is eating your laundry basket! :)

Wilma is next to me here on the sofa. We have just returned from tonight's bike ride...1.5 miles. This morning we did 3 miles. I am now very tired but Wilma is asleep. We should be in for a quiet night. We can only hope eh?

Somehow I don't think the Denise/Wilma solution would work for you and George! I can just see you pushing your bike through hedges and brambles, trying to catch the escape artist!

So healthy! Every time I go through the kitchen I reach for my hidden chocolate bar!!

PS. This reminded me of the childrens book 'The Hungry Catapillar'.....he ate through one cup, cake one piece of swiss cheese etc!
