Healthy Living

Mark was enquiring recently how my healthy lifestyle plan was progressing so I thought I'd update you all on this as I may have been a little bit evasive in my answer.

Wee Sweetie Mice

Woke up this morning at a quarter to eight
And said to myself 'I hate to lie late'
Then changed the alarm to a quarter to nine
Told myself another hour'd do me right fine

At breakfast I said 'It's porridge for me,
It's healthy and filling and practically free'
But then I considered that this might be nice
Croissants and coffee and wee sweetie mice

After breakfast I thought I'd go for a stroll
For the sugar and croissants were taking their toll
And what better thing than walking the dogs
Except spending all morning reading your blogs

At lunch I feasted on lettuce and eggs
And then thought I really must stretch my legs
So I planned to head out for a bit of a run
Then it started to rain and I ate an iced bun

At dinner I dined on a healthy baked spud
And virtuously refused the offer of pud
And stuck to my plan to fast after nine
Except for a bottle of really nice wine

Thanks. As you might imagine I'm looking pretty 'swell' on it.

If he knows what's good for him?

He got a bottle of Glenlivet (from Dee Mac) today. He says it won't last until his birthday - on Saturday! The stress of house selling is unbelievable. Not to mention having to live with me.
