The hazards of sitting in front of a computer all day

I now have an entry in my diary for the annual posh Xmas company dinner evening.

Think luxurious country estate, walled gardens, a library larger than the public library in the small town where I grew up, and pampering with wonderful food and wine. Gorgeous open fires and huge sofas. Magical.

And one of the very few times in a girl’s life when she has the chance to wear SERIOUS frocks and bling. Shoes with heels and thin soles. Make-up from department stores which cost more than your first wage packet.

In other words, all of the items which do not form part of normal life.

Writer’s grunge. I shall say no more.

So I now have about six weeks before deciding between :

1. I have lost SO much weight and look SO fantastic that none of my current collection could POSSIBLY do the event justice -new cocktail dress, and shoes coming up!

2. This mince pie is only 100 calories. And home made are so much nicer. And yes, of course I will come along to your Xmas party and scoff sausage rolls and trifle – it would be rude not to. Those hand made fresh cream dark chocolate praline truffles are just for me? How kind.
I already have outfits – I’ll be fine.

Um. Tricky one. Any ideas?

What’s playing on my YouTube right now? Morning Adrenaline Power Song. Listen with coffee before writing. Repeat as necessary. Foo Fighters. The Best of You.
