Menagerie Minus One :(

Today is very much a bad day. I felt too exhausted and anxious to make it into work, and then when Hague went to say good morning to the Little Dudes (the Gerbils) only two popped their little heads up - no Mousey to be seen. A quick investigation and Hague found poor little Mousey, all curled up, but not fast asleep :( So the menagerie is now back down to five, and I'm feeling horribly upset. RIP little MouseyGerbil.

Obviously I wasn't in much of a mood to do much today, including cook, but I need to eat and so just threw together a BBQ Brunch.

It consisted of potato wedges and a mix of veggies (mushrooms, onions, pepper, courgette and tomatoes) all liberally sprayed with BBQ FryLite and roasted in the oven along with the Quorn BBQ Sticky Fillets. I topped the wedges with 30g of cheddar, and that was that. It was actually very tasty, and it wasn't much of an effort really.

As the day has gone on, my mood has worsened, I've been teary, anxious and just generally feeling sick and down. Days like this can go either way really, stuffing myself with anything and everything, or just being utterly disinterested in anything, including food. Today has been the latter. I didn't eat my brunch/lunch til around 3pm, and I've only just had dinner and it's coming up for midnight. Again, it was a low effort job, as the slightest thing seems too much for me today.

Pasta, with chopped tomatoes, thyme, garlic and topped with 2 He's of Feta (100g) and some black pepper.  It did taste nice, but I can't muster up the enthusiasm for anything today - sorry :( I'll finish it up with some grapes, and I might have a yogurt or two later, but to be honest, bed can't come soon enough for me today. I want Monday 10th September to be over and done with, and hopefully tomorrow will bring with it a lighter mood and a much better feeling of health and wellbeing than today has managed.

Sorry for such a depressing blog, but hey, not all days (or weeks) can be good ones right? I'm not feeling too confident about this weeks weigh in either, but only time will tell. I hope you're all having considerably better days than me x
