Windsor & Cookie Diets..... Which Is Murder??

Monday 14th April (Week 5, Day 29)

I woke, at the start, of a new week, at 8am, I had a meeting to go to, so I jumped in the shower, my eyes are red raw, due to having my contact lenses in, all day, to try spot, my pals, running in the London Marathon, yesterday. I shouldn't off bothered, I never spotted a single one!! Role on laser surgery, no more sore eyes then. So as well as jeans & dark blue t-shirt, I wore dark blue, sandals & sunglasses, to shield & hide my manky eyes (sexy!!) I had two chocolate Cookies for breakfast at 8.30am, then went to my meeting at 9.30am. I had a call asking if I was free for 3 days for a drama series, filming in Windsor, knowing a friend wanted more work with them, I said I was free, but only if they could also cast my friend (If he's free) as he's local & we could car share, plus share petrol costs, making travel easier for me & travel costs, cheaper for us both!! 

After the meeting, I got a takeaway cappuccino, to go with my two snack Cookies, at 12.30pm, and headed home with todays paper. At 2pm I went to Beauty Secret, for another Bailine session, Yalda, said she had heard, that Simon had come in, on Saturday & that he was very handsome. Today it was time to do my torso again!! I had my 3 tone, dip dye, lilac underwear set on & Yalda said it was very pretty & I looked very brown. We had a chat, over a black coffee, after & as we did, I followed her new Beauty Secret, account, on Twitter @yalda1360 they are a lovely bunch of girls, so I hope they do well. 

I had my 2 lunch Cookies, 45min late at 3.15pm & did 30mins on the cycle & 30mins on the stepper, in the gym, then headed home. Having not heard from my friend, by 4.30pm, I text him, to see if the drama series, had contacted him? And if so, if he was free on those dates? He replied to me shortly after saying "I said yes, then realised, I'm not!!" Awe what a shame, that would have been a right laugh!! Oh well, that's showbusiness!! 

Hungry I had a snack Cookie at 5pm, I applied to a few auditions, and chatted to some friends on Facebook & Twitter, after checking, my emails. By 7pm I was ravenous, I'd of eaten my own leg & for a piscaterian that's saying something!!! The 1st 3 days, are meant to be the worse on this diet, but today, it's absolute murder, I'm so hungry!!! I could almost eat meat I'm so hungry!! So I had dinner, plum tomato & mascarpone soup, plus two slices of soya & linseed bread!! 702 cals, But by 8pm I was still gagging for food, so I had the 2 remaining snack Cookies. By 9pm, I was still feeling famished, so I had two more slices of soya & linseed bread (No spread) plus my can of K cider, that has sat in the fridge, for days!! A total of 500cals (oops!!) eventually my stomach stopped growling. I watched some TV & tried to finish, last weeks blog, going to bed at 2am.

Tuesday 15th April (Week 5, Day 30)

I had a lay-in until 10am, it's another bright sunny day out, will do a bit a spot of weeding later. I got on the scales, after my bit of a blowout weekend with Simon, and was surprised to see I've lost more weight, 9lb in total, according to my scales!! I had a wash, and had two, breakfast, maple Cookies, with a coffee. Still waiting for a call time, for a drama series tomorrow. A fellow SA from Hemel, Felicity, is picking me up, and we are going on to Windsor together. Now we have to await call time & costume. 

I finished off last weeks blog & posted it. I had more Cookies at noon, then did a bit of weeding. Then I did a couple of classes in the gym. I had my lunch cookies at 2pm & another snack one at 4pm. In a complete change to normal, I was constantly on the loo today.... It's like I'd been slipped an ALLI capsule!! I got a newspaper & a few bits, from my local shop. I then had a call on my mobile, from a top agent, who was putting me forward, for a part I'd love, with The Royal Opera!!! I'm auditioning for them next Wednesday, he said with my personality, he thinks I'll blow them away & get the role. The rehearsals will be, for a few weeks in May!! I hope the rehearsals, if I get it, don't clash with my laser eye surgery date, as I'd love this opportunity!!! 

My friends Martin & Terry, told me, that they too, were offered, the same dates, on the drama series as me, but neither could do Thursday. Both said to me, that they were gutted, not to be working with me, as they miss me, as we always have a laugh. Terry said to demand to be on his ward, on Holby City soon, as it's been absolutely ages, since I've worked with him, on there. 

Renny messaged me, laughing about my mention of him, in last weeks blog. He asked me, when I'd be able to fit him in, for a St Albans visit? I said when my life gets less audition manic! He said he needs to, get with more agents, as it's been too long since we last worked together, I said that I'd put a good word in for him!! "Cookie Diet's" fellow Guinea Pig, Julie, messaged me, saying she liked last weeks blog (Unlike my hater GLP!!) Wardrobe called & the costume brief, was muted summer colours. I can do that no problem (lucky that I changed my winter wardrobe, over to a spring/summer wardrobe, so finding apt stuff is easy!!) 

At 7pm I had a Birdseye, prawn curry (Note to Birdseye, your prawn curry is 90% rice 7% sauce & 3% prawns!!) But it still managed, to somehow sate my hunger, along with two slices of soya & linseed bread!! At 8pm I had a diet coke & a snack Cookie, watching 'CSI' then 'The Mentalist' before a earlyish night, going to bed at 10.30pm

Wednesday 16th April (Week 5, Day 31)

I am not sure, if I actually slept last night, or if I'd just rested, when the alarm went off at 4.30am? But if I did, it was only briefly!! I got ready for the day, washed & dried hair (dryer fused) and was ready with alternative costume choices all packed. At 5.45am Felicity arrived & we drove to Windsor to set. I realised, as we drove to the location, that as Felicity was 15mins early, in my hurry to leave I'd forgotten my cookies!!! Oops!! So full cooked set breakfast it was. Then it was costume checks, they chose from my selection what they wanted for me & I changed in one of the SA trailers. It was meant to be a hot day, but at 7am to 9am it was bitter cold out & I wished I'd brought my puffa jacket!! 

The set, was a lovely Windsor, Tudor Mansion (Below) which is the present setting, for a famous, American Drama, being filmed in London & around the SE. It's Ideal for a Halloween party, but with too much dark wood, inside, for my tastes. Not somewhere I'd actually, choose to live, even IF I could afford to!! I wondered how many generations, had died there? Either in their bed? Or by accident? Or other means, over the 500 years, that the Palmer family lived there? I wondered, if there had been any murders there? Or if it was, mainly at Windsor Castle, that people lost their heads, or were brutally murdered, in Tudor times? I also wondered, if the inhabitants, ever experienced any ghosts? 

There wasn't a huge amount, of SA people about, but I knew 85% of those, that were. The 1st & 2nd ADs, were lovely & unlike on 'other TV/Drama shows' they gave you a pep talk, before each scene, what was going to happen next, plus when you did well with your, continuity, they were very vocal & complimentary! Also a nice change!! By the afternoon it was boiling out & I was baking in my synthetic blouse, that wardrobe opted for, for me. So I opened a few buttons & caught a bit of sun.... Atul sunbathed between takes too!! (Below) 

I saw from the scene sheet, that one of the actors, on the episode, was James Lance. I've admired his comedic acting, since the 90s, when he was in 'Ab Fab' as Patsy's Toyboy, then later in things like 'Smack The Pony' I was actually in the same scenes, with him on 'The Look Of Love' a while back! I didn't see him on set today though. The sunshine, was super hot, today, it was beach & bikini weather, I hope tomorrow is the same. With no cookies on me, I had the catering lunch, of tagliatelle & ratatouille, with an ice lolly desert!! I spent a lot of my lunchtime, throwing a tennis ball, for a cute, cross eyed, collie dog. 

Then it was back to filming again, by 5pm, the temperature had dropped somewhat & it was a bit nippy, if you were sat in the shade, between takes. They brought out some sandwiches & I was good, I only had 1/4 of a cheese & pickle sandwich & a coffee, plus a orange juice. We wrapped bang on 7pm. Felicity & I drove home, after first finding a petrol station, as her car was very low on petrol. I got home, just in time to watch 'Secret Eaters' on +1 at 9pm followed by 'NCIS' also on +1 having 3 snack cinnamon Cookies, with a coffee & going to bed at 11pm. 

I met two fab SA's on set today, who I'd not met before. Mohinda (below) a really sweet, Indian lady who actually had me weeping with laughter, when she was telling me, about working as an Extra, on 'Robin Hood' when she said "I really wanted to be raped & pillaged, in the rape & pillage scene..... But nobody wanted to rape & pillage, an old Indian woman!!!" It was so unexpected, I roared with laughter!! It didn't take long after that, to find she was a right "game for a laugh ole girl" she was a sweet, little devil!! There was also a lovely blonde girl, with the most amazing jewel coloured, green eyes, called Nib, who was lovely too. The woman who owns/runs the manor house got us to sign the guest book too, which was nice!! 

Yalda, from Beauty Secret, sent me the video, of one of my favourite, Greek, dance tracks, today, which was really sweet of her, I must get the album Geia, by Despina Vandi (below) as I'm always, singing along & dancing around my flat, to it's title track!! 

Thursday 17th April (Week 5, Day 32)

I slept on & off, in a bitty, wake up every 60-90mins, type sleep!! Which made me feel, tireder, than when I had none (or next to none) yesterday!!! Knowing what I had to wear today (The same as yesterday!) meant, that getting ready, was a breeze. I was ready nice & early, for when Felicity arrived at 6am. I put my puffer jacket over my costume, as it was so cold yesterday on base, before the sun heated up!! I got in the car, to see Felicity had done the same, with a warm coat & warm boots, as the frosty/dewy grass gave her frozen feet, before the day warmed up, yesterday. 

We got to set at 6.45am, wardrobe double checked the SAs that had been on set yesterday, just to check our outfits were identical to yesterday (which of course they were) then it was another cooked breakfast (I'd left cookies at home again.... Oops) There were some more SA's today, more good SA friends I'd not worked with in ages!! Like Pam who it was great to see, plus Feih, who rushed over & hugged me, which was sweet. Another friend Alin, was also in, with his wife, Alin & I, normally just miss each other, normally we are on the same production, but always, somehow on different days!!  

I enjoyed catching up with my SA friends, then it was all off to base for today's scenes. The 1st or 2nd AD, took a group picture of us all, on Atul's phone camera (Above) The comedic actor, James Lance, was on set today. The day was fun & went fast, I was actually placed, so I got to interact with James Lance, in one scene. We had a bit of a laugh, with it, throwing in some jokey innuendo & double entendres, banter for good measure. 

It warmed up outside, as the day went on, but hazy cloud meant that, it was nowhere near as scorching hot as yesterday!! For lunch, I had fish pie, with green beans & cauliflower. Then a very yummy, naughty, banoffee pie for dessert, yum yum!! (Sorry Cookie Diet!!) Then it was back on set for more scenes, I was getting very positive feedback, from the ADs which was nice. There were lots more cute dogs, to play with & fuss over, when back outside & not needed on takes! One of the SA's was talking to actor James (Or Jimmy as the director was calling him) about his comedy role, involving pushing a piano in '2.4 Children' and asked for his autograph, which James was very accommodating, in doing.

I'd never do that, I think it's a bit cringey!! But the SA was a young lad, so being star struck, is more understandable. I chatted a bit to James, about when he played, Patsy's Toyboy, in 'Ab Fab' plus us both doing the same scenes in 'The Look Of Love' some time back, with 'David Walliams' We both agreed it was a fun shoot. The autograph getting, young SA, took a pic of me with James (above) Just as we were wrapping at 6.30pm. I was chatting to James at the time & asking if he was doing scenes, the following Thursday, wherever that would be, when a lot of the same people were back? He said he was & he wished me, a "Happy Easter" as I was heading off (to get signed off) which was nice of him. 

I'd been chatting to another lovely SA, I'd never met before called Renee, who told me, that she follows me on Twitter & loves my BLOG... Yes this one!! (Pauses, while my hater, GLP, chokes on their bile!!) She said she came across it, by accident, when trying to find two old school friends, from St Peter's school, in Belgravia & it popped up, so she read it & loved it & followed me on Twitter & now, here we were, on set together, small world ehhh!!? So once home I followed her back on Twitter & we added each other on Facebook. I got home around 8.40pm & bought a paper & some mineral water from the shop next door, then fixed myself a prawn tikka masala, for dinner, watching 'CSI & Body Of Proof' eventually going to bed, at 10pm, exhausted, back on the Cookie Diet track, tomorrow!! 

Friday 18th April, Good Friday (Week 5, Day 33)

I woke at 6am, I'd had a weird dream, I dreamt that while I slept, someone had tattooed the whole of my legs & feet, my outer legs, were tattooed, as a soldiers trousers, red with a white stripe, down the leg, with the end of a sword, scabbard, running down my thigh, on one leg, and black boots tattooed on my feet. The front of my feet were tattooed as boots, then the rest of the front of my legs, had multiple designs, like a sleeve of tattoos, I was absolutely horrified & enraged!!!! I thought "I'd rather amputate my legs, than live with these, repulsive tattoos!!" Then I fell asleep again & dreamt I was working in a supermarket & sorting out a customer with some half price fabric (Peacock blue brocade) plus another customers complaint, about their spring lamb. (My dreams are bonkers!!)

I woke at 10am, and had a wash, plus a coffee & two maple Cookies, for breakfast. I checked out some casting sites, for auditions/jobs, then I had a second coffee, as I changed for the gym! I wore grey 3/4 yoga pants & my fluorescent, coral, FCUK, t-shirt & white, Reebok, Easytone trainers. I put my hair up with a clip & applied some mascara & lipgloss then headed for the gym. 

Before I went on my way, To the gym, I popped to the shop, bought a Sun paper & two diet cokes, then I grabbed my puffa jacket & bag & headed to Fitness First, getting a small soya cappuccino from Costa Coffee en route, to have with my snack Cookie. I got in the gym, threw my bag & jacket in my locker, then filled my gym, drink bottle, with the two caffeine free diet cokes. Then I headed onto the gym floor,
I did my usual, 30 mins on the bike, some exercises on the powerplate, I had another snack Cookie, then the usual routines on the hip abductor & hip adductor, before another 30 mins on the bike & some squats (I'm concentrating on my thighs) as they are responding the least to 'The Cookie Diet' & Bailine.... 

As my hater GLP could tell you (I have been told, by my readers, who were slagging off my troll) that GLP commented on my "Flabby Thighs" on my last blog!! (Exactly what was said, by GLP, I don't know?) As my NY Resolution, this year, was to delete GLPs comments, without bothering to read them 1st, as their opinion, is irrelevant to me!! So only have a rough idea, due to messages, from my enraged readers, about GLP. They said, they thought, that GLP, was a petty, idiot & of course ANY "Before" pics in a "Diet Trial" blog, would be bound contain, some less than flattering, bulgy pictures, adding the GLP comments had been pathetically laughable. ALMOST made me wish I'd read the comment, before deleting. I had my 2 lunch Cookies at 4pm

I got back from the gym, at 5pm & chatted for a bit, online, on both Twitter & Facebook. I'd watched my best friend Candie's husband Costa & her son, Xavier, on BBC1's 'Parking Mad' via iPlayer, earlier today. At 6pm I had 2 snack Cookies, by 8pm, I was famished & had a Quorn curry, with 'Good 4U' Super Shoots, lentil pea & bean shoots & 'Tesco's Finest' tomato, olive & rosemary salad, all washed down, with a litre of mineral water, with a drop of lemon juice & Fountain (Above) in it!! I watched 'NCIS' at 9pm & at 10pm I had the last snack Cookie with more mineral water, as I watched 'Gogglebox' on plus 1, then 'NCIS LA' on Ch5 +1, which is good, but not a patch on the original NCIS. Then I ran myself a bubble bath. I had a nice soak, which eased the aches, from the gym. After I watched a bit of Supercasino as I got ready for bed & while doing a few bits online, I also had a bit of fun banter on Facebook & Twitter & texting a friend, before going to sleep some time after 3am.

Saturday 19th April (Week 5, Day 34)

I woke at 8.45am, and watched a bit of TV in bed, while I checked my Email messages, Facebook & Twitter. Then it was a shower & two chocolate breakfast Cookies with a coffee. Then I got dressed, in my turquoise jeans, lemon, v-neck, t-shirt, plus turquoise & white, Roxy Life, trainers (below) Today I have an open audition to go to in London, the weather is sunny, but there is lots of rain clouds about. So it was puffa jacket & my holdall of leggings, for the dance part of the auditions & headed off for the station. I was glad of my puffa jacket, as it may have been sunny, but it sure was COLD!!!! 

I had a snack Cookie, while on the platform at St Albans station, and my 2nd snack Cookie, as I sat awaiting to go into my 1st part of audition, which seemed to go well. There was a couple of hours until the dance part, so a few of us went to McDonalds, and feeling very hungry & needing energy for the dance half, I decided to have lunch as my main meal & save the Cookies for dinner. I ended up having 935 cals oops!! (235 cals over) Well I'll hopefully dance some of that off!! Then it was back to, a lot of sitting around, waiting to be called, for our turn, at the dance half, of the audition. 

Eventually it became my turn & it must of gone well, as I was told to stay behind, as I'd gotten through to the second part of the dance audition. More sitting around, so I had my two dinner Cookies, with a coffee at 8pm. I was called in at 9pm & did my 3rd audition of the day, then I was to go take a seat, back in the smaller waiting area. 

At 9.30pm one of the audition team, came into the room & said that all of us in that room, had made it through, to the audition short list, HURRAH!! So now it's a waiting game, to hear. So I changed out of leggings, back to my warmer jeans & headed home. I got a soya cappuccino from Costa, on the way home & got in at 11.30pm. I got changed for bed, then watched the 1st bit of Supercasino as I checked my Emails, Facebook & Twitter, then crashed out at 1am, without even having my last 3 snack Cookies. 

Sunday 20th April, Easter Sunday (Week 5, Day 35)

I woke at 10.30am, after a weird dream, I dreamt I was in Katie Prices home, helping her rearrange her lounge, as she had too many couches in it, in a mix of coloured & styles!! I also dreamt I visited a male friend had another child, and he dressed him in a mini version of his own football kit. 

Then in my dream, I went to my holiday home, in Cyprus, my friend Candie was staying with me & we had a threesome with a guy I know, my place was amazing with a huge bedroom, with a panoramic window looking over the island & sea. I was in a bar when a stunning guy said we were neighbours & he could see into my bedroom from his. I thought "OMG!!! I hope he can't see me pottering around in the nude!!"... Then I was on a plane to my other holiday home in Jamaica with one of my older sisters, Julie, my kitchen was stunning & huge, I was showing her my new kitchen stools, that I seemed very proud of..... The subconscious is a mad thing!! Talking of mad things, look at this chap, imagine him eating soup or drinking coffee in your dining room.... With a WHITE carpet!!!! 

After my wash, I got on the scales, I've not lost any more weight this week..... But I have not GAINED any either!! So I'm still 9lb down. I had a coffee & the two chocolate Cookies, not eaten yesterday, for breakfast I wore my turquoise jeans with a pale grey t-shirt & pale grey, cardigan, with pale grey, pearled collar & turquoise & white Roxy Life, trainers (above) Today is a day of a marathon watch of my "V" video's (below) with a friend!!! As there is just rubbish, on TV, over Easter, mainly!! Plus typically the Easter weather, is it's normal cold rainy self!! 

I had a snack Cookie from yesterday's leftovers, at 1.30pm with a diet coke, as we took a "V" break, to watch 'Spiderman 3'. We had a 105g of Minstrels (527 cals) each as we watched the movie (Well it's Easter & I've not had an Easter egg!!) so I skipped my 2 lunch Cookies & 2 snack Cookies. Then it was back to "V" the DVD marathon, until 7.45pm, when we stopped for some curry for dinner, 638 cals, while catching the tail end of Catchphrase & Off Their Rockers. We were about to go back, to the "V" DVD marathon, when 'Toy Story 3' came on. I'd not seen that one, so we watched it. Sweet Movie!!

 At 10pm I wandered home, with my DVDs, hungry, I didn't bother opening a cookie bag, for my 3 evening snack cookies. So I had a soya & linseed bread, super food, sandwich. I will get back on the Cookie bandwagon tomorrow! I slid this week as it is rather boring & repetitive & I'm not a fan of, same ole, same ole!! I read the Sunday paper, some EVIL American mother, killed her 4 year old son, smashing his head in, because she thought he was gay!! Because "He walked & sounded like it!!" WTF??? How butch can a bloody 4yr old boy sound? What is becoming of this world?? Meanwhile, a 65yr pensioner (But looks, much, much older) Calling himself, Roxanne, is demanding a £20K sex change on the NHS. Roxanne (below) says "Sorry guys, I know I'm pretty, but I'm a lesbian!!" No offence Roxy, but I think, that just maybe, laser eye surgery, is more urgent for you, first!!! 

I watched 'Fargo & Heat' on Ch4 +1, two good movies, on at Easter for a change. I can't wear any contact lenses next week, as I have a pre laser op, eye examination the following week. I can't wait to have normal sight, it's my birthday present to myself. I'm not going to be 50 & 50% blind!! It will be life changing, even if I will be paying instalments for a long time. I could get it done on the NHS but that could be ages & my eyes have really deteriorated, since their pneumonia damage, a few years back. Talking of NHS, that VILE piece of garbage, Josie Cunningham is in the papers again. Last time it was about her getting a boob job on the NHS after lying, she was broke & her small boobs made her DEPRESSED!! The truth was she was a prostitute, who could afford to pay for the Op herself, and wanted a boob job, to increase her clients & do glamour modelling!!! With that face??? (Below) 

Now the low budget slag, is pregnant, from one of her punters (So she is a nice, no condom, Aids/STD risk too!!! Classy!!) It now emerges, that the skank, now wants to abort the baby, to court fame, going in the Big Brother House. Is there no depths this little slut, won't sink to? She will be one of the most hated women, in the UK, long before she enters (If they are mad enough to have her, plus, that low life 'Big D' from 'Benefit Street') More exposure, will just make her further despised!!! She is beyond repulsive, I wonder if her parents are hanging their heads in shame, or if they are, the same level of scum, as her? I went to bed at 1.45am, a busy week of auditions & interviews ahead. I will try to get back on, the cookie diet, again next week, but this week, trying to stick to it was absolutely murder!

Rock Chick, Not Rock Cake!!!

Monday 7th April (Week 4, Day 22) Day In London

I got up at 10am, after treating myself to a lie in, and had two chocolate breakfast Cookies, with a coffee. Today I was off to London, to fill in some paperwork & have a small shoot, with a top UK model agency. I should have joined them 20-30yrs ago!! I was going to be photographed looking like a Rock Chick, I had on, shiny black Lycra trousers, a black vest top with chains hanging off it, chain earrings, studded bangles, a spiky necklace, pointed ankle boots, with cut outs & a fake, straight hairpiece, clipped into my straightened hair. I had a chocolate snack Cookie at midday & pulled on my long khaki leather coat & shoved my Cookies & a few bits in my leopard print tote bag, then headed for the station, grabbing my Versace umbrella, as it was raining out (When isn't it??) Annoyingly, it was that fine, misty, rain, and it was windy too, so it was all still getting blown, under my umbrella & making my hair wet!!! So with my hair being naturally curly, my hair started to curl, but of course the hairpiece didn't!!! Grrrrrrr!!! So now my hair was a shaggy mix of straight & curly, which I guess could pass as, rock chick messy!! 

I got the train to London & then the tube, heading in the Hammersmith direction, as the agency, is by the old BBC building. I had another snack Cookie at 2pm, once at the agents, I filled in all the forms & then I was photographed, against a backdrop, as a flirty, groupie, rock chick, then as an, angry rock chick, which was fun. After that I headed off to see my good friend Nat, in Walthemstow, who was a bit housebound, after having an op recently. Having my two lunch Cookies, at 4pm en route. I had a coffee at Nat's & another snack Cookie at 6pm. The news came on the TV, and we heard that Peaches Geldof  had died, this afternoon. She was found dead, at home, with her child, she was aged just 25yrs!! Oddly the last time I saw Peaches in person, was when I was on her short lived OMG!! Chat Show, as a cougar, and I was wearing, the exact same, chained vest top (Below, Peaches in spotted dress) on the show, as I was now, sat on the couch, watching the news, after the Rock Chick shoot!! Sad, she was a sweet, friendly girl, she ran around, and got me a glass of wine personally, the day we shot OMG with both Peaches & Janice Dickinson (Crazy but equally lovely) I'd like to say Peaches death was a shock, but sadly it wasn't. For a while I said she was a "Dead Girl Walking" as she was painfully thin lately, I didn't know if it was down to drugs, diet pills, illness or looking after her kids, while neglecting herself??? But it was obvious her weight had dropped well below a healthy one & was dangerous!! If I could see this, why couldn't the supposed support network of, friends, family, husband & work colleagues??? So sad & so unnecessary. 

Nat's husband, Terry came home & we went out for a bite to eat at 7pm (Fab, as I was now ravenous!!!) we went to Le Delice, 114 Hoe Street, Walthemstow (There is a joke in there somewhere!!) I had either the #2 or #4 pizza (Gorgonzola & Chilies) which was VERY TASTY!! Plus a cappuccino. My friend Renny, was texting me, as we ate, suggesting we meet up before I head back to Hertfordshire again, so we arranged to meet at Kings Cross station, as I'd be heading there after leaving Nat & Terry. I had a chat & gossip with the boys & talked about my laser eye surgery in May!!!! I can't wait, it will be life changing, to no longer be 50% blind!!!! Nat said I could probably stay at theirs, the day of the op, before heading back to Harley Street the next day, for my post op check up. I left Le Delice, and said goodbye to Nat & Terry at 8pm & got the Victoria line to Kings Cross. I got there at 8.36pm & headed to Costa & got a large Cappuccino, while I waited for Renny, who said he'd get there around 9pm. He'd been busy earlier, putting together a CD, of acoustic covers, sung by him. I first met Renny about 3-4yrs ago, while doing a pilot, of a show called "Is It Just Me" which sadly never got commissioned (It was a fun concept!!) when he was The Rock God & I was The Cougar and he was also on "Take Me Out" last year, or the one before (below) he didn't get a black out, thankfully & he came across really well!! 

Renny arrived pretty much bang on 9pm, and had brought me a copy of the CD he'd just done, which was sweet of him & we were laughing & catching up in Costa, before we then, headed off to Millers Pub oops!!... Renny & I were gassing away, ten to the dozen, it wasn't like we'd not met up, for a few years. I really like Renny, he is really funny & good fun, easy to talk to, down to earth, cheeky, talented & passionate about what he does, which really, is all the essential, qualities, a guy needs, plus he is a genuinely nice guy, and a cutie too, sometimes, the odd expression, or mannerism, he does, reminds me of my 'one true love' & for a 30yr old, like me, he is still a kid at heart. Renny was telling me about a musical, project, that he has been working on for the past 8yrs. Which is now, pretty much, fully formed & has legs, which he wants, to get me involved in. I absolutely loved the concept & he brought it all to life, as we sat there chatting, I could really get the feel of it & bounced a few ideas off him myself, which he liked. Time flew, and before we knew it it was midnight & he'd only get his last train, by the skin of his teeth, if we left. Which was a shame, as we both agreed, we could of happily spent, at least another four hours, or more talking. But maybe it was for the best, as I had an earlyish start & I'd now added, a pint if cider, and a couple of Vodka slimline's, to my diet consumption (Oops!!) 

We both continued chatting, via text, on our train journeys home. I text him, thanking him for a fun night, saying "Damn the trains, I could of happily carried on another 4-5hrs!!!" Renny made me laugh, when he text "I know, that was awesome!!! I know it WASN'T a date, but if it was, I would be feeling pretty fucking chuffed about that!! ;) ha ha x" I laughed as I had to agree & text back "Ha ha well if it had been a date, it would of been my best date in ages, too much fun x x" He replied that, that had put a big smile on his face & to let him know when St Albans was ready for a "Renny Visit" which made me laugh. Peckish I had my left over snack Cookies on the train & once home around 1-1.30am I put Renny's CD on, I liked it a lot, he has a good voice, and his project is fun, so I hope it takes off, I will certainly have a laugh, doing what he has me lined up for. I had a wash & got ready for bed & crashed around 2-2.30am. 

Tuesday 8th April (Week 4, Day 23)

The day started off earlyish, in Hatfield, where I had my two cinnamon breakfast Cookies, with a coffee at 9am. I forgot to weigh myself, after my meal out with the boys yesterday..... And a few bevvies with the Rock God, Renny.... Maybe just as well, maybe I'd of had a shocking setback, but back on track again today. I played Renny's acoustic CD again, this morning, I really like it, he's covered some good tunes, in his acoustic style, the only one I didn't know, was track 8. I had my snack Cinnamon Cookie at 11am & on bus home at 1pm. Renny was at the Xfactor open auditions in Romford today (to make his mum happy) he text me, that he didn't get through (I think he was relieved) just before 2pm. At 2pm I went into Beauty Secret, today I got 15mins on my arms, as well as my torso section.... It felt really funny, as you can feel you are being electrocuted, as you can feel, the fuzzy, electrocution in your hands, my phone flew out if my hand as I was trying to text Renny back. Your arms really shake, as your arms, are much lighter in weight, than your legs & torso!! I had to grip a rolled up towel, to stop them flying everywhere, it made me giggle.... No pain no gain!! The torso session below was a breeze!!

Renny & I text back & forth, as I had the Bailine treatment on my torso, I really like Renny, he's funny & passionate about what he does. I checked my emails, Facebook & Twitter on my mini iPad, as I listened to Heart Radio on it. Then after I had a black coffee, plus my two lunch Cookies at 3pm & chatted with the lovely Yalda. Then it was time I went home, so I tackled the laundry, rearranged my dressing room & bedroom draws (below) to also tackle my ever increasing, clothes, shoes & undies collection, as well as put away dry laundry!!... Listening to Renny's CD again, as I did so.... Singing along!!! Then I had a snack Cookie at 5pm, with a coffee, while watching "Millionaire Matchmaker" then it was back to the household chores, while listening to "Home & Away" At 7pm I had a grilled Tuna steak, chopped up, with salad, in 3 Warburtons sandwich thins, at 491cals which made up for yesterday's calories, hopefully. 

Knicker draws, R to L - thong/g-strings, briefs, French knickers
Bras moved to bigger draw under bed
Bras & lingerie sets, in other big draw under bed. 

I had another snack Cookie at 9 & 11pm while watching TV. Finally going to bed around 1am. 

Wednesday 9th April (Week 4, Day 24) 

I woke at 8am, after a restless sleep, I got up & jumped in the shower & then had 2 cinnamon Cookies, for breakfast with a coffee. I did a shed load of job/audition applications & then a load of housework, laundry, ironing, hoovering dusting etc (boring!!) having my snack Cookies at 10.30am & 12.30pm. Then I spent the afternoon changing my winter wardrobes, into spring/summer wardrobes, as below. Having my two lunch Cookies at 2.30pm with another coffee. 

I then had a spell, reading the paper, with a few glasses of water, plus snack Cookies, before finally finishing off, my spring/summer wardrobes (above) I watched Home & Away then had some cold, steamed, salmon steaks, mixed with smoked salmon & salad, in 3 Warburtons sandwich thins, for dinner, washed down with some diet coke & some Reisen chocolate sweets for desert, coming in at 664cals in total. Then I chilled in front of the TV for the rest of the evening, as I had a long day ahead tomorrow & a busy weekend. 

Thursday 10th April (Week 4, Day 25) 

I woke at 9am, I got on the scales & according to them, I've lost 8lb, but I hope I don't mess that up, over the weekend with Simon, before my weigh-in. I had a shower & my two chocolate breakfast Cookies with a coffee. Then I got ready for my day of filming ahead, hair, make-up & outfit done. I set off with my accessory bag & change of outfit options. Once in London had my snack Cookies at 11.30am & 1.30pm. I had my lunch Cookies on set, while all around tucked into tasty, stodgy, winter food. The smell of the food made my stomach growl in protest!!! At 7pm I finally had some food, a gorgeous, pea & creme fraiche soup, with some wholemeal bread, it tasted amazing!!! But that may have been down to my hunger & it's comparison to my rather bland Cookies. That came in at 508cals and my tummy thanked me BIG TIME!!! I finally wrapped at 9.45pm & left Chelsea, to head back to Hertfordshire. I was so gasping for a drink en route home, but there were no Starbucks, or Costa Coffees, en route home, or any other drink outlets open. I was so parched that on the train home, I fantasised about a cider stall, being on the St Albans, train platform, when I alighted. When I got out of the station, directly in front of me, I spotted a NEW off-licence had opened up & was still open!!! Damn, maybe there is something in that cosmic ordering after all!!!! Lol!!

So I bought 2 cans, of my favourite K Cider, drinking one on the way home, like someone who'd been wandering in the desert, with no water, for 3 days!!! Which added another 252cals to the earlier 508 (Oops!!) making the total 760cals, 60 over (not too bad) I put the other one in my fridge. I had the last of the snack Cookies, with a decaf coffee, while answering messages, on Facebook & Twitter with Supercasino on in the background. Renny text me at 1.33am, after seeing I was on Twitter, tweeting, so onviously still awake, asking me, what I was doing still up? I told him I'd been getting a few things sorted, for Simon's stay, over the weekend, we had some cheeky banter (the best sort..... I soon bore of guys with no banter!! Or who lose their banter!!) he said not to forget, to arrange for him to visit St Albans, at some point. We bantered a little while longer, then tired, I hit the sack around 1.45am. 

Friday 11th April (Week 4, Day 26) Simon Coming To Stay The Weekend

I woke at 9am, I got on the scales, they say I've lost 8.5lb phew, cider didn't blow it.... Let's hope I don't tonight, out with the boys, as it's my 4 week Cookie Diet weigh-in tomorrow!!! I had 2 cinnamon Cookies for breakfast at 9.30am, then a long long LONG bath!! I popped to one of my agents, to see if there was anything coming up, in the pipeline, that I might be apt for? Plus picked up some mail. Then I went home & went through the mail, while eating my two snack Cookies, at 1.30pm. Wearing turquoise jeans & a matching t-shirt, I popped in my local shop, to get a paper & a gay guy in there, buying some groceries, recognised me from when I use to manage, a local night club, years ago & said I'd not changed a bit, over the years, except being, a bit trimmer, which was encouraging!! Then I headed off to Beauty Secret for my Bailine session at 2pm. Today it is my legs, thighs & love handles (Below) Yalda printed me off my original body results chart & my progress one, along with my latest results (also below) 

The graph shows, how far away, my body parts, are from being the 100% perfect, body for my frame!! Originally my body weight was 86% perfect! (14% away from perfect) with a slightly overweight BMI of 26.1 (Normal is 19 - 25) on March 18th. Today on 11th April (3 weeks & 3 days, later) My body weight is 88% perfect (12% away from perfect, after a 3.5kg loss) another 13kg to lose, for my weight to be 100% perfect!! I NOW, have a NORMAL, BMI of 24.9 (My target is 20.5 BMI) With 4cm off my back at bust level (8cm to go) 3cm off my torso (9cm to go) 4cm off my waist (11cm to go) 3cm off my hips (12cm to go) 5cm off my butt (11cm to go) 1cm off my thigh's (7cm to go) NOTHING off my knees, so (8cm to go) 2cm off my calves (So I have hit my target, so there's none left to lose) 1cm off my over arm (2cm to go) but no change in under arm, which is already, 1cm under target (Which just needs toning & which, I am very self conscious about) they are hard area to sort, unlike the rest of me, as most arm exercises are out, at the moment, as I'm unable to do due to them, as doing them, adds to my upper back problem, if I do! (Hence the Bailine, on them, earlier this week. In the hope it has an effect, Or eventually in desperation I'll be saving up for a "Limited/Axillery Branchoplasty & Smartlipo!!"

When I first went, before my 1st tightening, Bailine session, on March 18th, according to the graph (Above) My bust/back area was 87.5% perfect (Needing 12.5% improvement) My torso/back 86% perfect (Needing 14% improvement) My waist 81.5% perfect (Needing 18.5% improvement) My hips are 85.5% perfect (Needing 14.5% improvement) My butt also was 85.5% perfect (Needing 18.5% improvement) My thighs (Both legs together) Surprisingly to me, were 91.5% perfect! With more muscle & water retention, under the surface, than actual fat!!! (Needing only 8.5% improvement) My thigh's, singularly, were 88% perfect (Needing 12% improvement) & finally my knees are 83% perfect (Needing 17% improvement) 

Now, today, after my 8th tightening, Bailine session, according to the graph (above) my bust/back area is 91% perfect (A 3.5% improvement. Now needing 9% improvement) My torso/back is 89% perfect (A 3% improvement. Now needing 11% improvement) My waist is 85.5% perfect (A 4% improvement. Now needing 14.5% improvement) my hips are 88% perfect (A 2.5% improvement. Now needing 12% improvement) My butt also is 89.5% perfect (A 8% improvement. Now needing a further 10.5% improvement) My thighs (both legs together) are now 92.5% perfect! (A 1% improvement. Now needing 7.5% improvement) My thighs singularly, are now 87% perfect (Taking a 1% step backwards. Now needing 13% improvement) & finally my knees are the same 83% perfect (So still needing 17% improvement) After my session there, I did two hours in the gym, to work on those thighs, which were going backwards, not forwards!! But before I did, I had a chat with the girls, as Yalda, had made me, a black coffee. You can find out more about Beauty Secret in St Albans by following @yalda1360 on Twitter. They asked me, what I was doing this weekend? I told them, that my friend Simon (below) was staying over, at mine, for the weekend & showed them his picture, on my phone & they said he was "VERY HANDSOME!!" 

Which of course he is & I said, that I'd pop in with him, at some point over the weekend. Then after the gym session, it was back home, for a bath & hair wash & to get ready, for Simon's arrival. I dried my hair, tied it back with a faux ponytail added on top. Tonight I wore a black, off the shoulder, long sleeved top, black glossy nylons & a black leather mini. Plus my black, stiletto, ankle boots & some gold jewellery and watch. Simon had already eaten, so I had Butternut Squash, honey & sage soup, with 2 slices of soya & linseed bread!! 532cals to try to be good before my weigh-in tomorrow!! Simon tweeted me at 7.30pm, to say that he was on his way, with a chilled bottle of bubbles, so to get the champagne glasses ready. So I got 3 ready, as our friend David, was picking Simon up, from his parents, after David had finished work, and dropping Simon at mine, before dropping his car, back at Hemel & then his parents, dropping him at mine, so he can drink tonight. Simon arrived around 7.50pm & we cracked open a bottle, with 4Music on the TV, providing the music!!

We caught up with each others gossip. Simon said i was looking really good & trim & also that he has decided, he wants to move to St Albans, to be near me, plus it's good for commuting to London. He said he was saying that he'd told David that, in the car, on the way over, and David said, that he also wanted to move out, of Hemel & his parents, so they were thinking of renting, a two bedroom flat together, so we'd all be close to eachother (Excellent!!) Then while waiting for David's arrival, we messed about taking silly selfie's. 

David arrived, he had some bubbles, then we headed to The Peahen, where we got a table & ended up, getting through, 3 bottles, of pink champagne (Oops I can expect to weigh-in 3-4lb heavier tomorrow, due to fluid retention bloat!!!) plus nibbles of sticky sausages, Haloumi, and polenta, chunky chips. I had around 6 chunky chips & 3-4 slices of my beloved Haloumi (but I didn't have my last 3, snack Cookies) Our waitress, Alexandra, who is also a model, was lovely & had the patience of a saint with David, who after losing a large bonus at work, was on one, being the total, loud, party boy!! 

Peahen Posse!! 

David, turns into a Jack Whitehall, clone, whenever he's on one!! We got back to mine at 1.30am & Simon went upstairs, while I chatted to David, who was smoking in my courtyard, while waiting for his dad, to pick him up Taxi Service style. It was bloody cold out by then, brrrrr!!! I locked up about 1.50am when David's dad arrived, and went upstairs, to find that Simon, had fallen asleep on the couch, bless him. So I put a cover over him & got ready for bed, and got in bed & crashed out myself!! Zzzzzzzzzz!!!  

Saturday 12th April (Week 4, Day 27) Official 4 Week, Weigh-in 

I woke at 8.30am, around the same time as Simon, we chatted & laughed about last night, Simon couldn't believe, that he'd crashed, before I'd even got upstairs. We both had a wash & I made us a coffee each & I had 2 chocolate Cookies for breakfast, Simon decided to have breakfast later in Costa's while we are out shopping. As we can't do our traditional J.K Palmers breakfast, before I have a Cookie Diet weigh-in. My next 4 weeks sully of the cookie diet, cookies, arrived at 9am & I dressed in my turquoise, skinny, low rider, jeans, matching t-shirt, turquoise drop earrings & black gladiator sandals (below) with my Alexander McQueen style, navy & white, skull print, neckerchief & slate grey Paul Costelloe leather jacket. Simon wore skinny jeans, a grey, v-neck, t-shirt & grey jacket. We popped in to say hi, at Beauty Secret & the girls went all soppy, over Simon as usual. Which amused Simon & I, he agreed they were all very sweet, as we walked to Costa Coffee. We got in Costa & both had soya cappuccinos, I had another cookie & Simon had a porridge & a energy bar too. Then we had a good mosey round the St Albans shops & Simon bought a coral t-shirt, in the shade of the one he use to wear, when bronzed in summer, but no longer has. 

Then we headed to St Albans, train station, to go to Elstree, for my Cookie Diet 4 week, weigh-in, then we are catching up with our friend from Big Brother 6, Kinga Karolczak. As it was her birthday yesterday, I'm dying to see her adorable new Pomeranian Cindy, in the flesh too!! As we were headed up the high street, in Borehamwood, Simon popped into a shop, so needing a pee (a Cookie Diet, side effect!) I decided to go to the pub next door & buy a diet coke & have a pee. I'd stepped only four paces into the bar, when the rotund, ruddy faced, landlord, bellowed out to me "Oi where do you think your going?" Confused, as I was only half way, into the establishment, I said "I'm going to have a pee & then buy a coke & wait for my friend!" Looking around the establishment & seeing only 3-4 male customers, I wondered, if the reason for the aggressive outburst, was due to it being, a men only establishment (Are they still allowed??) He continued aggressively "No!!! That's not the way it works in here, you buy the drink, then you use the loo!!"  What kind of clientele does he get? (If any, judging by the empty bar?!) That a punter can't relieve their bladder first?? I was smartly dressed, in designer gear, I was hardly about to rip the cistern off the wall, or inject smack, in there!!! And the place was so empty, I wouldn't of been able to pee & then sneak out, without buying anything, unseen!!... No wonder the bloody bar was empty, if that's how he talks to customers!! 

I almost wished, that I was in a skirt & had the shits, and couldn't hold my bladder, as I bought the coke first, as it would have served the old git right, if I had a bowel accident, on the "Toilet Nazis" floor!! He then charged me, an obscene £1.40, for a 'small' on TAP Coke, not even bottled (That syrup & soda water mix, wouldn't even be 1p, in costs, talk about BIG markup!) I'd get a pint of cider for that, in the Weatherspoon's across the road. I went to the loo, then drank my drink, as I waited for Simon. The old git probably spat in it, while I was in the loo, it tasted rank, it was over diluted, with soda water, the syrup bag, obviously needed changing!! At that moment Simon came in, leaving my rank drink on the counter, I walked over to Simon, exclaiming loudly, for all to hear, "Don't bother getting a drink here Hun, they are over priced, over diluted & their customer service skills suck!!! Lets go somewhere else!! No wonder they are dead in here!!" As we left, Kinga text Simon & said she was here, so Simon arranged to meet her, in the Ibis Hotel, and I'd join them after my weigh in. I got into the 'Cookie Diet' offices and saw Julie & Gaynor (Gaynor is also the name, of one of my older sisters) I'd chatted to the girls, on twitter, but had not met either before (below) each of us, were weighed & measured in turn.

I wore the same underwear set, as I'd done for my 1st weigh in, so I couldn't blame any weight loss or gain on what I was wearing!! My results were I'd lost 6lb (I knew I'd of gained weight due to yesterday's night out, 2.5lb it seems) I was expecting a 3-4lb gain, as I often can fluctuate daily by up to 5lb, due to water retention!! Then it was the measurements taken, I've lost 1" off my hips, I've lost 3" off my waist, I've lost 1.5" off my chest/back area, I've lost 1" off my arm & a had a 1" GAIN on my troublesome thighs!! (But that could be water retention though!!) Then we had a group photo out on the freezing cold & windy balcony, our hair blowing all over the place!! (Above - Gaynor centre back, Julie to my left!!) They then took a video testimonial from each of us, asking questions re our experience thus far. I was also asked if there had been any negative responses to my 'Cookie Diet'  blog, I said "Not unless you count my "Hater Troll" GLPGoddess but, thats due to, their own, personal, hatred of me, not the diet!! Other than that, the comments re the diet's progress, has been positive, the only other, negative comments, have been people saying... "Who's that petty, bitchy, nit picking, Troll moron, making negative comments, on your Blog? Don't they have a life? They are making themselves look so petty, stupid & obsessed!!" So again not about the diet!!" Then after a chat & a munch on an apple, I discovered that, sumo wrestler, Sharran, had discovered, that she had type 2 diabetes (Which may explain, as to why the Cookies, made her "GAIN" weight!!) Then once the chat was over, I met Kinga & Simon, in The Ibis Hotel & I finally got to meet, the adorable Cindy (Below) She was just so cute, when I held her, she was light as a feather, a bag of sugar, would be at least double her weight!! 

I had a cappuccino & a chat, Kinga told me, a funny story, about a female relative, wearing a pair of white trousers, after using diet pill ALLI (that is meant to stop fat from food going into body) the side effect of which is, greasy poo leaking from your butt (as side affects go, I prefer the constipation of the Cookies) Then Kinger drove us, to the Elstree train station. Once back in St Albans, Simon & I had a proper look round the shops. He bought a few bits, including a clear protective cover, for his iPhone & I got some tea tree cleanser. Then we popped into Costa again & he had a soya cappuccino & some nibbles for a late lunch, and I had a soya cappuccino & more chocolate cookies!! Then I bought a newspaper & we headed home. We got cleaned up, and changed, then about 7-7.30pm we both went to Waterend Barn, for dinner. I really fancied a tuna mayo jacket potato, I had a bit of a craving for one!! So when they had it on the menu, I ordered it, without even perusing the rest of the menu, having it with a cappuccino was 580cals in total. Simon had chicken, chicken & more chicken, he was a hungry boy! He had a white wine & I discovered a Toffee Apple Cider (below) Oops!!! Very nice, it had a real, burnt caramel, toffee apple taste!! 265cals a bottle (I had two!!.... Oops!!) Oh hell, I'll get back on the program again, next week!! 

We chatted about when Simon use to be in Hollyoaks & his time as a Abercrombie & Fitch model, in LA for 5 years, plus Renny's project. We got in at midnight, then crashed on Simon's makeshift bed, on my lounge floor, to watch the rerun of tonight's Britain's Got Talent pyjama party style, then at 2am we both retired to bed. As we had a busy day, tomorrow, in London, before we went our separate ways, back to our own homes, and it was to start off with our traditional Sunday Breakfast in J.K Palmers. 

Sunday 13th April (Week 4, Day 28) London Marathon 

I woke at 8.30am, Simon was awake already!! I had a wash & made us both a coffee. We got dressed for the day ahead, me in dark skinny jeans with diamanté studding around pocket areas, a black off the shoulder top, black ankleboots & I put my sunglasses & light weight puffa jacket in my black studded tote bag (below) as it's beautiful & sunny now, but being England it will probably snow tonight (Slight exaggeration..... Very slight!!) I tied my hair back & added a faux ponytail, so my back & shoulders could catch some sun & maybe tan a tad!! Simon packed his small case & we trundled past the St Albans, Sunday market, to J.K Palmers for our traditional Sunday Breakfast, I was salivating at the thought of FOOD IN THE MORNING!!! Arriving at J.K Palmers at 10am.

Simon, had his Full English Breakfast, with added Haloumi & a tea. I had the vegetarian breakfast, 2 rounds of wholemeal toast, mushrooms, grilled tomato, fried egg, baked beans & Haloumi (Simon also gave me, his two hash browns) & a cappuccino. The breakfast taste amazing, and the service excellent as always!!! Even the Maple Cookies, in my bag, couldn't compete with that!!... The food didn't last long (below) We left around 10.40am & got two Costa soya cappuccinos & did another mosey round the shops, before walking to the station.

We bought our tickets, and a Brighton train, semi fast, into London was due soon (London would be the place that we'd eventually go our separate ways) On the train we spoke about a train bang opposite mine, that was up for rent, Simon said to check how many bedrooms & the rent, as moving in opposite me would be perfect!! I couldn't help but laugh looking at Simon with his Costa soya cappuccino & Ray Bans looking like an Ad for the Coffee Empire!!! (Below) 

Today's The London Marathon & a bunch of friends, are running for charity, they said that, the route goes past, Blackfriars Train Station, so the viewing platform, would be an ace spot for me to watch, I looked out from the platform, at the viewing platform (below) when I arrived & it was clear, but I could see it was also quite empty close to road level, so opted for there instead. As it would have more atmosphere.

It was lovely & hot & sunny & I got a coffee frappe, from Starbucks, to cool me down, once Simon left, after standing in the sun a few hours. I didn't spot a single friend, even though I'd put my lenses in especially (They irritate my eyes long term.... Role on laser eye surgery) The atmosphere & the crowd were great fun, and time flew by, at 6pm the partner, of one of my friends running, said the BBQ was all fired up at their place in Kensington, so to come over any time I'm ready!! So I hopped onto the tube from Blackfriars & got the district line, to South Kensington. 

On the tube, around 6.30pm I started to feel hungry & realised I'd not eaten a single cookie!! By now, when on the usual pattern of cookies for breakfast, lunch & snacks, I'd be ravenous for dinner by now!! But after breakfast, a soya cappuccino & a frappe coffee, I'd only just become peckish!! Maybe next week, or on a more balanced, less hectic week I should do the diet with my main meal for breakfast!!! I got to my friends & as I was peckish & not ravenous as usual, despite the tasty smells of the BBQ I resisted the food or the booze, sticking to my cookies & diet coke (good girl) enjoying the good company, instead of the good food. I left there around 10-10.30pm & got the tube back to Blackfriars & then my train home. Getting home about 11.45pm, I sorted & tidied the lounge where Simon stayed. He text me to say he'd left his phone charger behind, I couldn't see it at first, as it wasn't where he normally plugs it in, but then I saw it by the TV. Not sure if I should post it, or if David will pick it up from me & drop it to Simon, after work, one day next week?? I had a wash & I was in bed & ready to crash by 12.30am!!! So another week begins!!
