I'm feeling uninspired about today, so here are a few basics. I might come back later and add more.

Basic stuff so I can stay on top of things:

* 2 x 15 in the kitchen
* 2 x 15 tidying, cleaning etc
* make bed
* freeze yesterday's stock

tlc for me:

* exercise (done)
* drink water
* wash hair, and give enough attention to it afterwards that it doesn't frizz everywhere
* spend some time outside, weather permitting
* do something fun and / or creative
* make some food that I can eat, as peas gave me mouth ulcers last night rolleyes
* think more about priorities

Ivy: you are so far ahead of me. No relaxation or napping, am just now getting to put my feet up and rest for a bit. Can hardly contemplate tomorrow. Hope you have a great day.

be home for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with my daughter

TLC
go to bed by 11
nap once
stay hydrated
eat proper meals

bonus -- finish thank you notes

Inflamed, I missed them too. I know my mood has lifted a LOT since we restarted. And "tlc" is a lot more nurturing and loving than "pacting", don't you think?

How's your little boy today? And what does your little girl say about her new brother?

I've done 15 minutes washing dishes, but basic tidying etc has been put on hold because the rest of the house has been so cold. Hope to catch up this afternoon. Have washed hair, though, and prepared a friend's gift for posting.

I have veg steaming for mashing and pureeing, and I am about to make a bread and butter pudding. I'm going to be the size of a house if this keeps up much longer - talk about stodgy.

Ivy -- I like tlc better too. It's an appropriate title. Baby boy is great, and asleep on my lap (no phones, but wifi in the NICU). His sister keeps asking to talk to him on the phone. She at least likes the idea of him. Sounds like you've made a great start on your Monday. What is bread and butter pudding?

Bread and butter pudding is classic nursery food. It's nice and squishy and slips down the throat easily, so is good for small children and for invalids.

http://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipe/Bread-and-Butter-Pudding-L342.html

It's also quite good nutritionally, especially if you serve it with some soft fruit. It has calcium and protein and carbs and fat, as well as a smallish amount of sugar, and then you get extra vitamins from any fruit you serve it with.

Yes, I know it's not ideal, but I have always been given Brownie points from dietitians whenever I've eaten it on a soft diet, because it is much better than some of the other options out there. They say it makes a really balanced meal.

And it's quick and easy to make, and tastes nice too, which is a bonus.

I'll have to make that. We all need the extra calories in this house. I like that I have all of the ingredients on hand too.

It's quite economical, too, and good for using up old pieces of bread that have gone a bit stale.

4pm.

Bread and butter pudding made; done a wee bit more tidying; attended a long appointment; sorted out a paperwork drama, so more Brownie points for me.

Bed is still unmade; stock is still unfrozen; too tired: might go to bed, made or not.

'night for now.

Yum, Bread and butter pudding, I'm drooling already! Is not something I make too often as it is only myself and dd(who is usually at uni)who like it (so I would just have to eat all of it)however she is home now so will have to indulge.

Bread and butter pudding is lovely; one of my favourite desserts. It probably sounds a bit boring, but it isn't. For extra calories, use whole milk (you should anyway) and add a bit of double cream. Also, consider trying it with brioche bread. Very nice.

Tlc for today:

*Get dressed, brush teeth, etc.
*Get lunch
*Stop feeling woefully sorry for myself (easier said than done :-/)


That's all I can cope with right now =/ If I feel better in a couple of hours, I'll come back to add to this

9am -- missed breakfast with my daughter, but did sleep in. I'll try to be early for lunch.

Mmm brioche would be yummy in that.

Sadly, I can't handle dairy, so no cream or brioche for me :-(.

Keep hanging in there, NCOT. You're doing brilliantly. (And I haven't forgotten I owe you email).

Other than breakfast, I e come close today. Made it home for the other meals, laid down for a nap, and did the thank yous. 11pm bed will be the tough part.

Thank you, Ivy :p

Ack. Thought if you could eat bread & butter pudding you could also eat milk and cream. I suppose you must use one of the milk substitutes instead. Sorry about that :-/

No rush about the email. In your own time. There's nothing worse than a nagging, guilty feeling you should have replied to somebody by now, so I don't want you to feel that over me.


Anyway, I did meet all of Monday's tlcs in the end :p The hardest was the last one, obviously, but by the evening I did cheer up. As a bonus tlc, I also got the tedious task of shaving my legs and doing my underarms out of the way for another week. I let it go for a lot longer in winter (not like anybody is seeing my legs), but in summer, shorts + unshaven legs don't go.

I'll get dressed, brush my teeth, get a cup of tea and come back and do today's tlcs in a little while. I need to do all this to "boot" up my brain up in the morning, otherwise I can't think :-/

Nice cup of tea -- that was my bonus today too. Feels so much better to be able to don shorts in this weather.
