  1. Your guess is as good as mine. Did you apply??

  2. I haven’t weighed myself yet. Don’t dare to, as I rather fell by the wayside yesterday, my first fast day. Reason being I have started an online course in creative writing and I was due to have a Skype interview. I was so nervous that I had to have some cheese and biscuits, and afterwards I was so relieved that I treated myself to a fry-up of bacon, egg and tomato! Today I started again, but again a busy day and I feel I’ve eaten more than I should. I’m thinking of changing my fast days a) to Sunday, when I’m not doing much and b) some other day when I’m not so busy. Shall weigh myself later on and see the damage!
