So much to do, so little time.

I think this is the longest I’ve gone without updating this blog. It feels kinda weird. The truth is, work is keeping me so busy I barely have time to do anything else. I’m so tired I’ve gone delusional. This morning I was feeling incredibly dizzy so I sent a text to one of my coworkers telling her I won’t be coming in. Or I thought I did. Apparently, it was all in my head. I had imagined that I sent her the text, just as I had imagined that she had replied and told me to get better.

At random moments during work, I will suddenly have a craving for something, whether it’s potato soufflĂ©, caramelised biscuits, Oreos covered with peanut butter and/or Nutella… or like today, tuna.

Yes, I was actually craving tinned tuna at work. Don’t look at me funny; tuna is a perfectly delicious and healthy food, and I like eating it either in a wrap (with mayonnaise, sweet corn and lettuce) or with pasta (my favourite recipe includes lots of steamed veggies and a dollop of mayonnaise mixed altogether – yum).

So I go to the grocery store and pick out a can of tuna, and I tell myself that’s all I’m going to buy, but then I cross some really dangerous territory.
