    Ordered a grocery shop about a month ago for this Saturday. Obviously with events I have not been home, so I have too much food. If I cancel the order I won't get another this side of 2020 so I decided instead to start clearing out the freezer.

    Tonight I had duck and a rump steak. Proper got the meat sweats after :D

    Pulled pork for two people (yeah, right) tomorrow lol.

    Those 'serves this many if you only want enough to fill your little toe' are always nonsense.

    The worst is those drinks/snacks where they say a single pack is two servings. So dishonest.

    I’ve been smoke free for 3 weeks after 15 years of very heavy smoking to the point where I couldn’t lay flat because I struggled to breath.

    I’ve also hit the gym for two weeks in a row while improving my diet massively.

    500ml drinks bottles are worse IMHO; it's a blatant ploy to make the product look healthier than it actually is.

    I positively hate the "500 ml = 2 x 250 ml portions" text on coke bottles. Why, thank you very much I already passed third grade maths.

    It's all about the sugar/salt/fat

    Make the portion size small & you can then claim is a lot less of your daily allowance.

    Aye marketing BS 101.

    One serving of this pack of lard is low in fat* (* based on one serving of looking at the packet)

    Yesterday's beard removal went well, waiting for bits left in follicles to fall out.

    That bonus I mentioned? Permanent black dye with blue tint on my upper eyelashes and dark brown dye on my eyebrows. That combination made my eyes look unusually green. Me likey.

    Baby steps. Literally

    Going through puberty vol 2 has "funny" side effects. My boobs to be hurt 24/7.

    Only took me two years. Happy though. Covered all of the big black marks the removal men left. Then when I woke up at 2pm someone had stolen Butlins LOL.

    My sister's two cats are staying with me on a temporary basis. They're both pretty shy*, but I have really, really missed having animals running around the house.


    *Until I brought them some cooked chicken, then they suddenly got super brave.

    Cats are awesome critters. We've got three. They are at times pure comedy gold :D

    Our first anniversary of cat ownership is in a couple of weeks, it is quite something having someone furry and characterful living in our house.
    I grew up with cats and haven't had one since leaving home.
    We hadn't had a cat since I met me wife as she has an allergy.
    My daughter found a British Shorthair that was allegedly hypo allergenic, so we went to look.
    My wife had no reaction, so that was it, we bought a dear little girl.
    Our house is now a home!

    Over six hours on the phone with my sister.
    She wanted a big sis. She'll have one.

    My eyes have been red many times this week. For good reasons.

    if you every fancy another feline friend, the Siberian breed can be good for certain allergies; yes its a long-hair cat, but if its the protein in the saliva that your wife is allergic to you're quids in!

    Playing the Doom 3 E3 2003 alpha version again. Still ridiculously impressive after all those years.
