It’s been a hard week.

Back to London
And so back to London where it’s a balmy 7 degrees Celsius and work has continued on the Money Pit.
Perhaps I spoke too soon. After a stop-and-go trip to JFK with an annoyingly chatty driver who decided to give me business advice, I went through the usual pre-flight checks.
Brrr, chilly in New York
Temperatures are low, even worse in Celsius and it’s cold in New York.
Progress from the Pit: The Countdown is On
With six weeks to go until we reluctantly vacate the warmth and comfort of lovely, cosy Chalk Farm, time and money are of the essence. The budget is very tight and we’ve come to the realization that realistically the kitchen will have to wait until Stage Two when we’ve saved some more money.
Off to New York. Back on Friday!
London Spa Day
Sunday and the last day of the Christmas break. Letad and I decided we needed to get warm and clean after two weeks in the pit and so set off to the day spa at the Ironmonger Row Baths in Islington for a treat.
The Weigh-In of Shame
Happy New Year! Unfortunately it was time to get on the scales and face reality.
I will confess, we indulged over Christmas. We were working hard and eating more than we should. Coupled with champagne, wine and gin, it’s fair to say we were feeling rather toxic. The only thing to do was face up to it. We did the weigh-in of shame and reluctantly wrote down the results.
Despite my conviction that the scales were broken, I was horrified to see numbers I hadn’t seen for a very long time all stacked up next to each other. Surely a lie and perhaps I should buy new batteries?
The first step is admitting there’s a problem so I’m not very happy to admit that I’m the fattest I’ve been in a decade. Ouch, that hurt. I do have a tendency to exaggerate sometimes but sadly this isn’t one of those times.
We have decided to jump on the bandwagon and do Dry January. Also known as a Dryathalon, it involves no booze for January. One saves hundreds of pounds and thousands of calories and so we’re on Day Two and a nice glass of wine would be lovely now…
We’re drinking green juice, eating kale and we’re back on our bikes. The result? I was down 0.2 of a pound this morning so it looks like a long, slow road back to normality.
Happy New Year?
