Well we had one really unhappy 6 year old at 2am.........she awoke and I wouldn't let her get up. I got into bed with her and made her stay there and she got really angry but she went back to sleep after an hour of fighting the situation. She totally could not understand why I wouldn't let her out of bed when she was awake!

They have just finished the final shop in the new row of stores in Pentwyn............ a BETFRED-just what we needed! I have known 2 serious gamblers in my life and it has not made them happy people, one was massively in debt and the other lost his family because of his gambling.

I have decided that I know why I do not drive my car around town much in the daytime because the roads are filled with too many idiots. On a roundabout an old lady pulled out in front of me and went I beeped at her as I nearly hit her the look on her face was.'oh dear, did I do something wrong'. A taxi driver undertook me and a huge row of lorries were playing convoys and wouldn't let anyone into the dual carriageway. Next time I will avoid the dual carriageway but I had to go out today as I needed to hand in a form at the County Hall.

I watched Half Ton Hospital on TV last night and boy was I really shocked. I know I am over-weight and I am trying to lose weight to live healthily and longer to be with my family and of course like everybody else I want to look good but if this show was meant to shock then it certainly worked. I was shocked!
Whilst I was ill and after I hit my head, I didn't exercise but now that I am feeling better I am definitely going to be exercising more. It must be devastating to be so morbidly obese that you cannot get out of bed. I really do not believe that food addiction is taken as seriously as addictions to alcohol, tobacco and drugs. I love making bread and I love eating bread, I wouldn't need anything else and I really believe that my love of bread is an addiction. I have spoken to other people about food addictions and all those who felt that they were addicted to food felt that their biggest problem was bread and potatoes.
Why is it then that fat people are judged as being stupid but not smokers or drinkers?

Food addiction is probably the worst kind of addition to combat. Any other addiction - be it drugs, gambling, alcohol - you can deal with by avoiding the substance you're addicted to. Problem solved (well, maybe not quite). But how can you avoid food?

Now you're just being a big old meany - bread indeed! We don't have bread out here, we have cakey stuff that they call bread. They wouldn't know a wholemeal if it jumped up and bit them on the nose, and as for granary! There is no translation [even if I could eat it!]

I have a food addiction problem and frankly I know better.

I stuff myself to make myself feel better emotionally.

I know that I shouldn't, that I'm a Christian and should use my faith rather than food. But there it is.

I overeat.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
