My new task is to do no tasks after 8:45pm except Civ, cooking or politics.
I didn’t drink last night and woke up feeling much less grumpy than usual.
I might make Hugh’s chicken and mushroom casserole with cider next week.
Adho = Down
Mukha = Face (like ‘mug’)
Svan = Dog
Asana = Pose
Everyday I’m going to learn the Sanskrit for a new pose and then do the pose. I hate doing downward dog in class. I can’t get my heels to the floor and it’s a struggle. Maybe one day I’ll enjoy it. Our teacher says it’s suppose to be relaxing.
Had only two glasses last night, so got my reward of the next Coroner Jenny Cooper book. It’s the most unputdownable stuff I’ve read in ages. Need to have only half a bottle of white tonight – I’ll decant half into a smaller bottle.
I’m meeting up with some friends for dinner tonight. I need to do the water every two drinks thing plus no more than two large glasses of wine (or half a bottle if someone wants to share). If I do this, I’ll get the next in the Coroner Jenny Cooper series.
If I don’t buy any bottle of wine over £10 until the end of the month (this sadly rules out Tesco’s excellent Carpentier champers), I’ll give £30 to Médicins sans Frontières. I read an account by one of their doctors who performed a c-section from the light of mobile phones when the electricity gave out.
