1. I've found a new way of being able to drink coffee without milk ... if you add one teaspoonful of the vanilla shake mix, close your eyes and hold your nose you can almost believe you're drinking it white .
2. I actually quite like the strawberry flavour shakes... and I didn't have to hold my nose.
3. Saving the best 'til last ... today I walked into the ( ironically named ) Fat Face (hitherto forbidden territory being over a size 18) in Farnham and bought a pair of jeans 2 sizes smaller than my normal size. Admittedly I had to lie flat on the bed back home to get them on (reminiscent of the teenage years only then it was a size 8) but it was worth it and presumably in another month's time, I'll be going back for a size another 2 sizes smaller.
