Bugs and diseases.

The hand washing boffins have said we should be washing our hands for 20secs (2 lots of Happy Birthday, I don’t think it matters who you are wishing a happy birthday).

Don’t get me wrong, due to my lifestyle I am a regular hand washer, but I’m not sure I can commit to 20 secs hygiene-ing myself. So it looks like I will be forced to take my chances with the bugs and diseases. After all when have bugs and diseases done anyone harm?

Cutting down on the white stuff.

Like Ian Wright I need to cut down on my sugar intake.

This realisation, like most realisations in life, came via porridge.

Whenever I’ve made porridge for myself I’ve always added sugar but for my 1 year old I make it without. Being so young I also have to check the temperature is suitable. I do this through the very sophisticated method of sticking my little finger in the porridge. This however means I then have a bit of porridge on my finger and the easiest way to remove this is by licking it off. On doing this I was surprised that it didn’t taste minging, in fact it was more than passable. Since then I’ve tried to take less sugar in my porridge, my other cereals and my cups of tea (down to about half a tea spoon).

Taking January Off

For the last few years I’ve taken January off. No Dry January or Veganuary or any such thing for me. I don’t even bother with resolutions.

January is no time to try to create a new me, it’s wet, miserable, grey, I’ve over indulged at Christmas and the credit card is due to be paid.

I find this approach quite relaxing, there’s no sense that I have to achieve anything just because I have a new calendar.

The only downside is that before you know it (31 days) it’s February and the only exercise I’ve done is running for the train and I’ve still got my mum’s Christmas cake to eat.

Perhaps I should take February off as well.

My Selfless Act

Hola. Hope you are well.

I got the other half an electric toothbrush for Christmas. I knew she wanted one, so got her one.

However, I accidentally let it slip that I bought the toothbrush with my Boots Advantage Points. She wasn’t overly impressed by this revelation and even canvassed opinion. Her mum said it was ‘grounds for divorce’. My first thought was, ‘we’re not even married’, my second was, ‘that’d make a good title for a song’.

In my defence, I’d built those points over the years and was going to buy myself an electric toothbrush but I didn’t want to get one for myself and leave my other half with electric toothbrush envy.

So with this in mind, is it wrong to buy presents with Boots Advantage Points? (loyalty points, vouchers et al..)

Ps. I’m now having to rebuild my Advantage points and I don’t shop at Boots much, so it’s going to take me a long time before I get my electric toothbrush, but I’m not looking¬† for sympathy for my selfless act.

Til next time, be nice to each other.
