Although, last week when I didn't go to class because of my cold, I weighed at home and I'd lost one pound, so really that means I've put on two and a half pounds in one week. Which is an awful lot.
I blame the bread.
I've had two large helpings of home-made pizza as well as soup and bread twice. And when the bread's nice I can't just eat one slice. So that's what it will be.
George looks at me and coughs.
'What?' I say.
'What about the cheese, cake and chocolate?'
'I wasn't going to mention that.'
He is unkind to me. I've been poorly y'know. Like my granny said, I had to feed a cold.
Cherie in class is much kinder. 'Are you taking anything?'
'There's a ridiculous number of calories in Lemsip. Something like 150. That'll be it.'
I much prefer that explanation. However I've googled it - as it doesn't give the calories on the packaging - but can't check the accuracy of that statistic. But Cherie said it so I'm happy to believe her.
