This post is brought to you by the words “oh” and “dear”. I really am working on a lot of projects at the moment, but almost all of them are for other people! I’m terribly proud of them, but can’t show them off until their recipients have seen them – it just doesn’t seem fair somehow.
Actually, my biggest current work in progress I started this morning and won’t know the results of for some time. Drum roll, please!
I have decided to give up caffeine.

Right, now you’ve finished recoiling in horror, you can carry on reading! No, I haven’t gone mad, I’ve just become very aware of how dependant I’ve become on coffee to keep me going. And as someone who has a cluster of anxiety issues, migraines and sleeping problems, I can’t help feeling that’s a little unwise. It’s also the first thing a health questionnaire always asks, and I feel a bit daft for complaining about the problems wihtout doing anything about them. So I’m giving up the caffeine and trying to get back on Slimming World 100%. The two may actually be connected, since coffee makes me crave cake, something else that’s not doing my headaches or energy levels any good! My head is not happy with me this morning, and I’m sure it’ll be even crosser tomorrow, but I know from experience that if I can get to the weekend without cheating, I’ll feel a heckuva lot better. Also, I’m allowing myself decaf coffee, which at least has the placebo effect! I’ll report in on progress, assuming I survive…
(Incidentally, I am trying not to substitute sugar/caffeine for other things, which isn’t easy when Fabric Rehab go and do something like this: Thrifty bits. Polka dots for £5.30 a metre? *whimpers*)
Which give you a flavour of what I’m doing without (I hope!) giving too much away.
Also, after doing these for a while, I’ve decided that I much prefer playing with others, so am adding my link to those over at Tami’s Amis. Click the button below to head over and see what others are up to.
