Managed to make it through the night, woohoo!
It’s amazing how becoming increasingly aware of the plight of others, brings home just how lucky I am. I get out of my comfy bed, shower in water that is clean enough to drink, put on freshly laundered clothes, put the telly on and watch Game of Thrones that I recorded on Sky last night. All stuff I take for granted in my comfortable little world. I must never forget just how privileged I am.
Wearing my fave t-shirt today.
Breakfast 7:30 am. 2 slices of toast.
Dry toast is something that I would not recommend for breakfast, certainly not without a LOT of fluid!
Had to go into the office today, I made a decision that I’d not bring any lunch with me and to come home after my meetings and take lunch when I got back.
By 11 o’clock however, I was hungry. This I told myself was probably more psychosomatic than actual, I mean, it’s only been one day! Drank a litre of water in about an hour, more as something to do rather than being thirsty.
Meetings done, homeward bound!
“Lunch” 2:30 pm. Rice and chilli beans with 2 slices of bread.
The chilli beans were not what I imagined (hoped), but when you’re a bit hungry, it doesn’t matter so much. Bulked it out with bread to add a little variety, need to be careful though as I am going to run out before the end of the week. This thought makes me strangely nervous!
Still chugging water, the blessing of domestic plumbing!
Dinner 7:30 pm. Half a tin of “Smart Price” beans on 3 slices of toast.
Miss putting tabasco sauce on the beans.
Well its now midnight and I am ready to sleep. More thrilling stories tomorrow!
