Yesterday was a big family get together with my husband's family, very much centred around food and drink. It was a fabulous day, 13 of us, 6 "adults", seven cousins (9-27 years) and four dogs. The day starts with massive fry up but I had my usual porrige with fruit to set me up for the day after dog walk number one. Lunch was delayed but I resisted the crisps and nibbles, but really enjoyed my roll, cold meat and salad. My treat was small helping of full fat coleslaw! Second long dog walk and an afternoon of boozing, nibbles and games. Being designated driver I had fizzy water but still laughed and had great fun. Chinese take-away in the evening and I had one moderate plateful. . . unheard of!!! Then karaoke and dancing until I fell into bed exhausted. Just a lovely, fun-filled, happy family day. My point? I have finally realised that you can have fun and enjoy life without over eating!!! Yippee happy days <3
