I have come across a couple of websites on MSE that I thought some of you might be interested in as well.  One is called The Austerity Kitchen, and the recipes are more for entertainment and remembering the old times than actually cooking the items as a lot of them make enormous quantities and are quite old in terms of the ingredients that they use, but it is an interesting read, nevertheless.  The other one is Recipes Past and Present which is really good!  There are recipes from Wartime and Victorian times, for example, and I shall be having a good look through them when I have some spare time.  Let us know what you think, please, if you get there before me!

I couldn't believe it at the slimming club tonight - not only did I lose a pound, but I was Slimmer of the Month for April at the class - and I only lost 4.5lbs the whole month, so I guess a lot of people didn't lose a lot, with Easter and chocolate temptations perhaps.  I have a half stone to go to get my Club10 award when I will have lost 10% of my body weight, and I am hoping to achieve that by the end of June.  The EFG isn't doing so well at the moment, having stayed the same last week and then put on a pound this week, but I am convinced that she just isn't eating enough.

Otherwise, today has been spent at school - shortlisting candidates for interview next week.  We whittled the field down from 4 to 2, and hopefully one of them will be a good candidate for the school.  It is one of the most daunting responsibilities I find, to employ new staff - such a responsibility to choose the right person!

Hope you are having a good week - I can't believe that this week has flown in quite so quickly and it will be Friday again tomorrow!  This week, I am looking forward to some rest and recuperation at the weekend - I just have to face the tooth inspection tomorrow afternoon [I won't say the D word as I know it gives some people the willies just thinking about it!] but it is just a check up and hopefully she won't find any work!

See you tomorrow xxx
