This year, my eating habits have been excellent. I satisfy my sweet tooth by storing low-calorie ice cream bars in the freezer and drinking low-fat chocolate soy milk (in moderate portions, of course). So when one of our clients dropped off a mammoth Christmas package full of sugary and carb-olicious snacks, I almost avoided it successfully. That is, until my boss put some of the chocolates on my desk.
Hey, once it's right in front of me, my self-control has no fighting chance.
Alastair also promised me that he'd take me to see the Xmas lights in Lobethal in the Adelaide Hills (for Chicago people, it's the equivalent of our Sauganash) tomorrow night. This is the last weekend that we'd be able to go, because we're going away next week. We don't have a Christmas tree (where would we fit it?), and I have hardly heard any holiday music this year, so I need to get my fix!
I'll also have to remember to post pictures of the West End Brewery Riverbank Christmas display from last year. I have some good stories about that...
Bye for now, friends!
