Some nights I can get away with just nibbling on the odd bit here or there and others I just can't seem to fill my belly. I usually have a stock of sausage rolls for snacking plus a plated dinner that my mrs has made for me. But tonight it's only 3am and the dinner has gone, 3 sausage rolls and a pot of olives! I have just stuck a pizza in but it looks small so I can see the hunger pangs continuing :( I think I may have to make myself some yummy porridge as that usually does the trick :) Mind you maybe I'm dehydrated? I read somewhere once that when dehydrated the body sometimes confuses thirst with hunger! I'll have a pint of sarsparilla and soda just in case.

I think I shall have a haggis croissant Happy Haggis for the great Scot who is about to embark on his maiden Slam win before becoming the GOAT. And the croissant is to celebrate Nicolas Mahut who is duky going to oblige by knocking Mr Djokovic from his perch at the plentful odds of 79 to 1.

Hi there bttdj, have'nt heard from you on here for ages, thought you must have given BF the flick.
Report back to the day job January 12, 2014 10:18 PM GMT
Hi Shiraz, not been on forum for over a year I think. Sill dabble on BF. Lose more than I win but a little hobby rather than an income now. Was such hard work relying on it for income. Did it for 4 years but burnt out. Work is so much easier and you actually get paid for your efforts regardless! Laugh
Report shiraz January 12, 2014 10:41 PM GMT
What ever keeps you sane I guess, I know what you mean about the uncertain income.

It's funny, just yesterday my daughter (14 y.o.) asked me about "work" and said she wanted to get a job so she could have some independence.  I told her that was commendable and then explained how it is tricky for me to instill that in her since I never go to "work".  When I figured it out the last time I had a job where I went to work for someone else was almost 20 years ago.

Anyway, hope to hear more from you during the AO.

Breakfast here was coffee and raisin toast.

Had an Avocado. You have to be careful when deciding when to open them, if their not ripe they're finished. Trick is to squeeze / press it gently to see if it soft.
