Back and hips still mostly pain free and I didn't have as much stiffness when I got up this morning. However, my left knee is problematical now, keeps feeling like it's going to give way. If it's not one thing it's another, joys of getting older I suppose.
The very low carbing is working, I'm slowly but steadily losing a few pounds. I shall endeavour to keep it up until Christmas. It's hard though this time of year, usual winter foods are all carby. And then there's Christmas foods everywhere you look! Hard to avoid them, TV and social media full of ads and pics, shops loaded with them wherever you go. I've got stuff for Christmas here, both things I've made and some bought, but at least they're either frozen or hidden in cupboards out of eyesight, so out of temptation. Will just have to stay strong.
All this Government stuff is really getting up my nose at the moment, something else it's hard to avoid as it's all over the TV, radio and social media. So unless we have the TV off all the time (not going to happen, not in this house!) and basically don't engage in any form of social media (which is how I keep in touch with some of our family), then it's almost impossible to avoid hearing about the Government's parties that did or didn't happen last year (bet they did) when none of the rest of us were allowed to mix with or visit anybody outside our immediate bubble. And all the rest of the unsavoury stuff that's now coming out.....once again it's as it has always been - THEY make the rules, WE are expected to follow them, but these rules don't apply to THEM, THEY can do what the hell they like!! And I'm not saying that any of the ones not presently in power would be any different, I think they're all a bunch of immoral sleazy self serving tossers, who wouldn't/couldn't answer a straight question with a straight answer if their lives depended on it.
The thought that there might possibly be restrictions over Christmas gatherings again will really upset me, as it will everybody.
Sorry, I'm feeling very irritable today! I will NOT succumb to the chocolates hidden away, will just have to have a big mug of coffee with cream in it......I'm NOT going to open the Chocolate Brownie and Orange flavoured Baileys lookalike also hidden away either. If we had any crisps in the house it might be a different matter, I can't resist those, so have deliberately not bought any yet.
