Just when I was really feeling down and rather joy-less, I finally (after many fruitless applications) got invited for a job interview on Friday!
It's not to say I'm going to get the job (I'm not familiar with one of the software programs they actually require), but just the flickering of interest has lifted my spirits already. It's for a journalist/editorial coordinator role at a good magazine publishing company.
Job or no job, I must eat healthy, exercise and sleep enough, so that I can be energized for any eventuality!
I've dragged out my box of oats (that I keep for making breakfast for my husband) and will have some of that tomorrow. I'm half scared it will make me feel weighed down, but I have to make friends with it. I'm not eating enough wholegrains.View Thread
I want to try and improve my mental state, for a start. The last few weeks I've had to really fight off feelings of loneliness and feeling a bit worthless; I have had days when feeling "what's the point of even getting up?". Must try to infuse my days with more meaning. If I can get a job, it will help so much.
Also, just continuing with my efforts to get into a decent eating pattern. Routine, regularity - that's what I'm lacking. Some more predictability in my eating. I have to limit and control my snacking far more, for example.
Well, that's two big areas to work on, although not exact goals!View Thread
Good idea to doctor the cake as much as you can, to give it a chance of tasting better!
As a novice, she should of course have gone for something plain and easy, just a standard cake without unusual ingredients like raspberry beer... She is underestimating the complexities of baking, if you ask me.
I hope it will turn out better than expected. You should take a photo of the end product (together with the new pastry chef of course).
Thanks for sharing this entertaining saga with us!View Thread
