Yesterday I realised I’d failed

Posted by on Sep 30 2006 | General Ramblings

Last night Donal brought home a chocolate soya milk drink.

Which triggered a memory.

About 10 days ago, totally without registering it as something I shouldn’t have done, I bought and drank some chocolate soya milk. It was yummy. I only realised last night that I’d done it.

I’m so disappointed with myself. I don’t think it affects the migraine trigger testing, but I was hoping to have achieved a month off chocolate, and I didn’t. I don’t plan on trying again either.

In other migraine news, the drug the doctor prescribed to take when I get one seems to have worked. This is great, although expensive news. €10 per dose, 2 of which may be needed. One has set me right so far, but it may come back and I’ll need to take a second.

I don’t want to talk about the final assignment. It will all be ok in a day or so, but it’s not right now.

If this was February, I could have chocolate tomorrow.

Why didn’t I decide to go off these things during a shorter month? Roll on Sunday, that’s all I can say. I have some Butler’s chocolates waiting for me. They’d better not bring on a migraine: If chocolate’s my trigger I will not be impressed.

I’m about half way through my assignment. I will have it finished on time, but the next few days are going to be just as study filled as the last few, so blogging will continue to be reduced. Thanks for everyone’s good wishes. I can’t wait for it to be over. 3 years of studying while working full time is a lot.

There has been some knitting, but I don’t have the time to take pictures and post them – there’ll be a bumper update early next week.

Swap pals for the Knitters Tea Swap have been allocated, and I’ve been in touch with my spoilee. Then today I received an e-card from my spoiler that brightened up my day. Thank you Tea Swap Pal – if you have any questions for me just let me know. Oh, and it is ok to buy me chocolate now!

Right, back to the grindstone.

New Rules

Right. Until I’ve completed the 6000 word assignment, every evening after work I must write at least 1000 words before I pick up the knitting needles. This is very frustrating as I cast on something new and exciting (and unbloggable, as it’s going to be a present) last night. However, it’s the only way I’m going to get this done.

“So”, I hear you asking. “Why are you blogging instead of getting down to tonight’s 1000 words?”

Good question. Excuse me for a while…

Update: Gave up last night at 820 words and went to bed. No knitting. Got up early this morning to do some before work and I’m now at 1394. 600 to get done tonight. My brain is melted already.

Slow blogging weekend

Sorry, I’m too busy freaking out about my college deadline. Not actually doing anything about it, you understand, just freaking out. Cheryl kindly lent me her ball winder, so instead I’ve been making pretty yarn cakes. I have 2 finished objects too, but those’ll have to wait for a day or so I’m afraid.

Prior to the knitting group. It’s good, but they do great coffee here, and i’d love a cup. Have to wait for next time i guess.
