I have decided to ban Nutella from my cupboard – especially the really big jars that you can fit a really big spoon into. It’s all very well my Slimming World consultant saying that a teaspoon of nutella is only a few syns, but how about a heaped tablespoon – I mean dessert spoon obviously. I am not that much of a pig. Actually I am. So much for my plan to lose weight before Christmas – it is comfort food all the way around here.
And while we’re on the subject of comfort, I thought you might like to see a picture of Seamus making himself comfy on my lap. And yes he is heavy – 13 stone heavy. And the “tiny” dog curled up next to him is a Staffordshire bull terrier cross.
When people tell me they have a large dog I have this urge to say, “That’s not a large dog. This is a large dog.” Like Paul Hogan did with the knife on Crocodile Dundee!
