    Bingo.
    That's what I've noticed too. Couldn't work out if it was the weather getting cold and relative humidity rising or allergies, but sugar is a well known acidifier and inflammatory apparently. Add that to the ever-growing list of things I am clueless about.

    Evening everyone. The first round of a series of consultations happened today regarding the new workplace 'look'. We were given the chat about our chances of being employed in the near future - with someone's kids and husband cavorting around in the background of the Zoom call listening in to it. is it just me?

    Morning and waves to the world,
    I cannot be doing with zoom........our worldwide zooming stopped six weeks ago. By the time we'd got through
    1)turn on your sound....still can't hear you.............try again............nope
    2)I can't see you..............followed by advice to sit on a cushion.
    3) You've gone blank again
    4) Ending up just ringing Jenny as its a damned sight easier
    5)Still can't hear me.............so I ended up holding messages on a note pad

    Cannot imagine trying to work with it. Got a vision now of a man in his grey underwear floating about in the background.

    Ticking boxes, Molls, for a full on return to work eh ????
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Re: International Army June 2020

    Evening all, have just been reading back and had a lot of good laughs so thanks all for that Today is my day 60 and I'm rather pleased with myself. Have had quite a few stressful things happen over last few days and by yesterday was feeling really fragile mentally. The old faithful (my inner critic) was banging on until I managed to stop for a minute and think 'OK, wow I'm getting stressed out, look at me'. Funnily enough, my IC was going gangbusters on that exact thing, about why was I such a pathetic wimp etc.. probably from times before where I'd been stressed and confided in someone close who said 'for gods sake just leave yourself alone'.. which meant I doubled down on myself about being such a wimp getting stressed about being stressed.
    Anyway, after realising what I was doing, I told myself I’d just got to keep my head down and get through the day. I got myself home and put myself to bed with a silly book. Had a HUGE sleep and today I was able to reflect more sanely. It was a pile-up combo of things that got me into that state. Good news is I did not think at all about drinking. It seems I've replaced that particular urge for now by recognising what was required was comforting and did just that. Am quite proud of myself

    Ask me anything!! First time I ever tried it Bridget was the old Atkins Diet (90s). It’s a bit more sophisticated now but back then the ‘induction’ required 3 days of nothing but eggs, cheese, meat. The day started with a 3 egg omelette. Obviously the main challenges about eating that way is to get enough fibre! Also, the thing most people in my house missed was cheese toasties. So I invented a clever compromise using my nutribullet (a super fast blender) which is now a favourite: 1 egg, 1 tbspn sour cream, 1 tbspn psyllium husks – blend quickly and throw on a hot frypan covered in melted ghee (there’s a great grassfed one from Byron bay that has all the extra vitamins). Once you’ve turned it over, melt some slices of bega cheese and ham, fold it over in half and then divide into two serves. This gives you zero carbs, plenty of fat and the eggs are a high quality protein. It’s very filling, plus if you do the right thing and drink lots of water, the psyllium swells up, you feel really full and it’s impossible to get constipated.

    We don't even get paid for the Nursing Home courses - the logic being we'd have to pay outside for a course .... f*cking wrong. So any courses even Manual Handling has to be done on your own time. I see the girls having worked 4 x 12 hour shift have to come in for some stupid 2 hour course. Makes me furious the way they are treated.
    I don't give a shit - I'm P/T but these are young with families.....

    You can make waffles with cheese and eggs, too. They are really good and don't bloat me up and make me feel dragged out like regular waffles used to. I either make savory ones with cheddar cheese or use mozzarella and then top with butter and berries. Really tasty.

    I cracked up the other day. We were on a MANDATORY zoom meeting and while the EO was speaking, the FREE session timed out and cut him off ! That's what happens when you're too cheap to pay for what you need.
