This is what boredom has done

So, my friend is back on the dating scene again after being in an 8 year relationship since she was 17. Her first date is with a guy she's been talking to online, and is tomorrow.

It's so exciting!

Then she came out with "It's going to be quite casual so I'll just wear jeans and a band t-shirt.

Band t-shirt? No! Jeans, yes. Cute pumps, yes. But a band t-shirt? Unless you're going to a gig, it's just like you're making no effort whatsoever. Save that for later, wear a smart top instead.

I've been reading the Bridget Jones book too, she goes through a big long list of funny dating rules in that.
I'm no expert on dating as I'm also in a long lasting relationship (and blissfully happy, by the way). So I'll just give my tips, rather than what the 'rules' should be.

#1: No band t-shirts.
#2: If at a meal, share a starter/pudding, rather than having individual ones.
#3: Take turns in arranging the dates. This way you both get to do what you like, rather than just one person making the ideas all the time!
#4: Try new things!

That's all I can thing of for now. What are your tips on dating?

Daily Food Fess #10

Who knows? Who cares!

I had a filling and healthy day yesterday and decided to take the alcohol out my weeklies. Completely lost count! I've guessed I used 18 on alcohol, it was a good night. Maybe I've underpointed, but I'm not planning to use all my remaining weeklies (30) so I should be alright. I had fried a crumpet soaked in egg as a snack for when we got home, it was so yummy!

Bee & Liz let me do their make-up for them last night. They looked lovely!! Once Liz uploads the picture of all three of us, I will share. For now, here is me and Bee.

Does anyone else always feel slimmer the day after a night out though? I don't have scales at home but it would be interesting to see.

Today I had fruit and Greek yoghurt with a coffee for breakfast. Lunch is vegetable and lentil soup if I can be bothered to make it, if not I have loads of other stuff. I just want to eat Shredded Wheat to be honest. I'm out for a meal tonight. It's a tapas restaurant but I had a cheeky look at the menu already, and they do a main dish of grilled salmon with tomato sauce. I'll use a few weeklies to cover oil etc, but otherwise it should be pretty good. Got a WW cheesecake in the freezer if I need it, and some WW bars, so I won't have pudding.
