I foolishly stayed up til 2am last night, partly from being too weary and cold to muster the energy to climb the stairs and go to bed. 

I'm really paying for it today, though. So tired. Can't face Olivia's info dumping or Bodhi's noises. I have bought noodles and veg but am cringing at the thought of cooking dinner. 

That's all, really. Yawn. Kinda wish it was Friday. 

I ordered some boots. My car repair will also cost me around two hundred quid. Boooo. I will be relieved when I 'm no longer spreading petrol stains and vapours round the neighbourhood, though, and dripping it onto the ground. Then I can go back to pumping the carcinogens out into the air instead. Sigh.

Oops, I'm eating all the chocolate I bought to make a ganache for the cake I might get round to making at some point, even though I've been meaning to for 2 weeks. I was seduced by the description, 'vibrantly floral and fruity, first taste is of mixed berries with slight acidity, which is balanced by notes of light honey.'

It might even be true.

I think I am going to try and give up refined sugar for awhile. Not, however, as found in alcohol.
This probably isn't going to help anything, is it?

I firmly believe that we should all do that. I'm just weak, Mary. Weak!

My friend who gave it up years ago says she never gets tired. She needs sleep, etc, but she never feels weary. Healthy blood sugar levels I guess. Also, no PMS. My mother who didn't eat sugar/refined carbs/dairy etc never had any menopause symptoms.

It's ... a good idea.

I stayed up way too late last night as well, just watching a movie. I knew I should go to bed but it was so lovely being alone and quiet and not having to do anything. Sometimes going to bed feels like another chore.
I'm trying to be good about sugar and alcohol. My dangerous time is around six in the evening, when I'm cooking and the children are a pain.

I don't think there's much way round that, Mwa. Except maybe have the snack you'd like to eat instead ready and waiting. This chocolate was fairly dark, in fairness, could have been worse.

I feel exactly the same about going to bed. If I could float upstairs in a sitting position, I might be ok. But then, brushing teeth... and it's so cold...
