Dear Desperate Diary...
Dear Desperate Diary,
Here goes nothing... Literally.
Even your milky white pages are reminding me of cake frosting, or Betty Crocker's table spread
…Is that a sponge cake I spy on the horizon?
No, it’s just a meringue.
Well, it’s Day One and all is going reasonably smoothly.
By 6pm, I was still in budget:
20p for a porridge breakfast, another 20p for second porridge breakfast 2 hours later, 25p for a fish fillet, 10p for a portion of frozen vegetables and 20p for the boiled potatoes. That’s 95p for the day. Not bad going, huh?
Truth be told, I found myself doing a lot of Math in the frozen section of the supermarket...and salivating in front bakery shop windows most of the time. *Apologises. I’ll bring window cleaner tomorrow, Greggs.
Stocking up my freezer and cupboards with one big shop, I even have left aside a little leg-room in my budget for fresh ingredients when needed.
Right now, it's 9:40pm and I’m craving something smothered in chocolate and/or marshmallows.
But all in all, I had a balanced and filling meal.
Let’s see if I can keep this up.
Chocolate fingers, and toes, crossed for me.
P.S Are tea-bags an essential item?
