Taking the service in the prison on Sunday and hoping the chaplain will let me light a fire. Only a little one. I can't see any problem with that, can you?

As long as we don't have any arsonists there.

I phoned Tech Support the other day as I was having problems. The man said, 'Look at the side of the machine. Can you see a little switch?'
'Is it on?'

Honestly, do I sound blonde?

A few of you lovely people have suggested that my knickers are falling down because I've lost weight. Oh that it were so.

I put on weight and now have two sorts of knickers: tight, uncomfortable ones or loose comfy ones (bought from one of those stores that doesn't like to upset its customers so labels extra-large as medium). Obviously if I'm going to be sitting down all day I don't want elastic digging into my bottom so I opt for the comfy. Which is fine until I walk more than 10 yards.

I have been on a serious diet for 10 days now and my shorts are no looser than they were when I started. (It was the tightness of my shorts that made me go into this dieting malarkey again.) The sun is shining and I am fed up of ryvita and low-fat yogurt. Be strong, girl, be strong! Have a banana.
