I think it's time to get back on the Slimming World programme.

During the night, I realised that my bed frame has broken.  Also, my office chair won't stay at the height I want it and it's embarrassing because it makes farty noises whenever it goes down a bit.  And the button pinged off my trousers this morning.

Yes, I definitely need to get back on the diet...

Anyway, the fact that my bed is broken obviously means that I need a new one.  I can get one from Tesco Direct and get double Clubcard points, but I don't know where to start.  You know those memory foam mattresses?  Are they hard, or soft?  And are they worth the extra money?  Any other recommendations at all?  Anyone?  Bueller?

I've had a lovely weekend!

Yesterday, I had a really nice lie-in whilst watching the cricket and doing some writing, and then I went into town where we had lunch at Positano, and then I went over to The Hair Priory and got my hair cut and coloured.  I'm glad Kate's moved there - they offer you wine and proper fancy coffees, none of the muck mixed with Coffeemate that you used to get at Vaughan's!  Apparently, he'd said to them all that he was putting the prices up by £1 but wanted to keep that extra £1 (on top of the 60% of the takings he was already taking), and was planning on putting them up by another £1 in April and doing the same thing.  When Kate asked during the staff meeting he'd called to tell them all this what he would do if they all said no, he said, "Well, you can all fuck off."  Lovely.  So she took him at his word and switched salons, and it's so much nicer there, even if they don't have vibrating chairs by the basins.  And it was a tenner cheaper!  Good stuff!  So I saved myself £10 there and I also saved myself money by resisting the temptation to buy the new books by Linwood Barclay and Dorothy Koomson.  Hopefully they'll be out in paperback before I go to Mallorca in SIXTEEN WEEKS' TIME.  Yesterday evening was spent in front of the telly with some lovely food, a couple of bottles of Italian lager off of Marksies, and then some Petit Chablis, whilst watching old episodes of UK Border Force (I am addicted to this, btw).

Today, I had another nice lie-in and then got up and watched the end of play from Bangladesh before walking Teh Dogge.  I then spent the rest of the day writing (I did over 5,000 words today) and watching the IPL, the second game of which ended up in a super over, which was really good fun.  I don't actually know the names of the teams because I'm rubbish like that, but I wanted the yellow team with Mattie Hayden and his mongoose to win, but the red team in the Arsenal type shirts won, which was a shame.  It was an awesome match, though.

I had planned on cooking chicken wrapped in parma ham and stuffed with Quark and parsley for dinner, but I got as far as getting the ingredients out and lighting the oven before deciding I simply could not be arsed, and ordering in a pizza instead.  Total diet fail.  Dominoes appear to be right on form, though.  The order was only placed 15 minutes ago, and already it's on the road.  Stonking!

Right, I must go and put my clean bedding on before the pizza arrives.  I'll never manage it once I've had a beer - it's tricky enough at the best of times!
