The husband is away for the week (and will be absent weekly until Christmas while he does a work placement in London) and I have resorted to the kind of terrible behaviour that only a single girl can do, namely eating too many biscuits in one sitting and otherwise undernourishing myself. I have overindulged in lentils this week.


  1. Lentils are healthy!

    I have an interview next week (which involves pretty much 24 hours of dinner, breakfast, presenting to an entire department, lunch, endless interrogation, smiling, vomiting, all in front of the other candidates...). This has induced what can only be described as TERROR.

    Your drawing pretty much represents how I feel this week.

    Enjoy the alone-in-the-house freedom though-sew a crazy animal or watch a really trashy film or spend 3 hours one evening looking at lighting fixtures. You know you want to!

  2. Lentils are healthy! I made too many, though, and have been eating them for days.

    Your interview sounds utterly terrifying. Don't get too drunk (although a little bit drunk might be a good thing) and you'll be OK. Good luck! I'm sure it won't be as bad once you're there.

    I would do all of those things if only I weren't also overloaded with work this week - I did manage to find the time to watch a 'trashy' documentary on BBC Four the other night about the history of British landscape painting. Yeah, I'm so cool...
