sleep until it's done.


"I'm a mess, I'm a wreck, but you wouldn't know 'cause I'm at my best when I'm with you." - Big Deal.

When I'm feeling tired/sad/anxious/negative, there's not much that makes me feel better in the way that food does. To be honest, sometimes I'm surprised I'm not overweight considering the amount I comfort eat. Also, when I get a craving for food, I HAVE to have it soon or I'll probably get grumpy...

So last night I had to make a cottage pie, and today I had boiled eggs (from Elliott's mum's chicken's bums) and soldiers. I also went all the way to Tesco just for some "choco snaps". I was convinced by the packaging - I'm a sucker for a fat feline.

Feeling pretty tense in general at the moment. I'm pretty sure it's down to my new sessions of CBT and not really knowing what they'll entail, and the Cosmo Blog Awards which are now less than a week away! Hoping I don't have a nervous breakdown by the time it rolls around...!






Thanks if you've bought anything from my blog sale! I'll be posting things tomorrow :)

  27. when i'm sad i do the opposite and go off food completely. i have no appetite at all, although the picture of the eggs and soldiers is kind of tempting.

  28. i introduced someone to the concept of eating boiled eggs with soliders and she has informed me her life has been so much better since! it really is the ultimate in comfort food & i hope that you start to feel better soon missy. until then you have full permission to eat as much comfort food as you want, because that is what its there for! xoxox
