It was a long work today - 9am till 6.15pm, with only half an hour for lunch plus morning and afternoon tea breaks. I couldn't even tune out during the day-long meeting, because I'm the minute-taker and had to pay attention.
The big plus was that our snacks and lunch were provided, and very nice food it was too. Because I've been brought up not to waste a single grain of rice in my bowl, it was impossible not to eat too much. Even with careful pickiness though, I still didn't have room for more than a smidgeon of dessert. Without meaning to be melodramatic, it was almost emotionally painful to see that huge block of melting strawberry and chocolate coated ice cream (and accompanying fresh fruit salad) left on the table as we left the dining room at the end of the lunch break, knowing it was probably going to be thrown out with the other leftovers. What a waste of creamy dairy goodness...
There. Now that I've got that off my chest, I feel so much better now.
The boy and I have discovered a new phrase to use on each other. I think it's Australian - it's definitely been used on Kath and Kim, and it's a synonym for to pout. It's To have a mouth like a pussy bum, or to have a mouth like a cat's bottom.
