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. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd_p1A7WVNs&feature=PlayList&p=5505018970D42764&index=0

Hmm. Why can't you have both?

Fabby new frock AND scrummy party food? That gets my vote :o)
