11th – 17th June 2017
The other day I was driving and Matt was in the passenger seat. We had just been shopping and Matt decided that he wanted to try on one of his new shirts.
He found it quite a struggle putting it on in the car. Once he had got it on he thought that there was something wrong. He realised he was now totally entangled in the seat belt and he was trapped and couldn’t move.
My first thought, was not to help him or pull over – it was to laugh hysterically. The only trouble with this was that I laughed so hard that tears were filling my eyes and I couldn’t see. Which was not a good situation when driving.
I eventually managed to control myself fortunately without having an accident. Matt eventually managed to untangle himself without any help from me.
I told him that I had actually done that before and I soon realised that changing while in the car is something you must never do. It got me thinking about other things that you shouldn’t try and do as you will see below.
This week has been quite a busy week for me. This week I have had 4 parties to go to. I have always been a person who loves a good party, but 4 in one week can take its toll.
3 of the parties have been black tie events
It’s nice to dress up on occasions and have a good night out and I have to say I enjoyed them all. At this type of event you get to meet people you haven’t seen in a long time, it’s a good time to catch up, wear out your feet on the dance floor and eat good food.
Last week I also decided to start a detox. Detoxing, I have learnt, is a really good thing to do. So this week I have also learnt that you shouldn’t do it with so many events coming up.
The trouble with a black tie do is that it’s a set menu and you don’t get to choose what you can eat. The fact that I was detoxing meant that I was extra hungry by the time the food came. This meant that the detox went out the window.
I was also staying in a lot of nice hotels, which also meant a lot of nice food. It was like I was really trying to punish myself. The thing that crossed my mind was who in the world would ever start a detox with so many events coming up.
I thought I would not be able to get back on the detox after. However I did and I actually lost a few pounds this week too. But I wouldn’t recommend it – neither would I recommend changing shirts in a car with your seat belt on!
