Last Friday I headed to Glasgow Fort with my Mum to try to catch the end of the sales; but all the good stuff was mostly gone. I got this cute bow necklace for £2 in New Look though, and I did enjoy a yummy lunch at Prezzo. Their £9.95 lunch menu is great value as the portions are huge. I had breaded mozzarella, then pepperoni pizza with chilli oil. I’d eat pizza for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I could!
Talking of pizza, on Sunday night my husband made his homemade pepperoni pizza. He makes the dough from scratch and it’s amazing. I’ve been on the 5:2 diet this week, and I am liking it much better than cutting back to 1300cal everyday, which i’ve been doing for months. This way I can have 500cal two days of the week and then up to 1900cal the rest (although i’m often not reaching that high). I’m definitely a comfort eater, so I can have a lot more nice things on the 5:2 diet.
I am so happy that Birds of a Feather is back on TV with a brand new series. Pauline Quirke’s character makes me laugh so much, and it is such a comforting watch as it takes me back to the golden age of TV comedy- the 90s- with Keeping Up Appearances, The Brittas Empire, and One Foot In The Grave. The new series is on ITV on Thursday nights, and is three episodes in. Once the next five are finished I really hope they re-commission it.
