Day 158 - Sweet Deal

I had such a lovely day. I worked at home this morning and then James and I took our work to a nearby cafe and spent the rest of the day working from there.

We ate both lunch and dinner there. My food was a little bit richer than usual, especially as I had a slice of bread at lunch and sampled three of James's fries at dinner, still I am happy that I made sound healthy choices when ordering my own food and everything was delicious.

The cafe we went to is called Pick More Daisies and fancies itself a California style joint. Yeah righttttt!!! Still it is a really sweet place, made much sweeter by a special offer they had going today. To celebrate the American holiday of Thanksgiving, you could pay for your meals in American currency. So if the bill came to £30, you'd pay US$30. Now that's a sweet deal. Don't you think? We have lots of various currencies floating around our apartment, so this deal gave us a chance to round up all our American dollars and spend them. Yippeee!!!

  1. What a gorgeous day you had! I think you did very well. Glad you had a chance to spend all that american money you had lying around you jetsetting little bugger!

  2. If you have some more American money just lying around, send it to me!!

    Just ate my Thanksgiving meal, and headed out for my evening walk to try to halt the damage!!

    Down to 220 this morning!

    Hey, do find yourself obsessing about this whole weight loss thing? I catch and stop myself from making it a focal point of my conversations - hate folks that do that!

  3. You always make me laugh Livy. I wish I were jetsetting.

    Tracy, don't have much now after those meals. LOL!!! Hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving. Congrats on the new weight loss. Doesn't it feel goooood???? I'll answer your question in my next post.
