The food trap

May 9th, 2008 at 07:34 pm

I have been warned of the "new worker's spread." There is lots of food at my new work place. We are provided with morning tea on Monday (cookies) and a fruit platter on Wednesdays. The trainer is handing out lollies as rewards and there is a snack machine plus baked goods for sale as a fund raiser. Not only could I easily spend a lot of money - I could get fat.

I went to the supermarket after work today, the 5pm crush is something I've avoided for a long time. I saw someone I knew and she had a deli cooked chicken, some salad greens and a bottle of wine. Her bill came to over nz$30. I asked her if the wine was for a special occasion and she said no, it was just a regular dinner. Guess I'm lucky I can't drink alcohol with my medication.

Money In

Today I received $28.47 as a tax rebate. Thankyou - I'll put it in my doing-up-the-house-to-sell-it fund.

I'm still around and full of good intentions, but hit a glitch with the computer this week. I am in the process of drawing up a list of needs - needs, not wants - to be purchased out of my first paypacket. So far I have listed:

1. mouse
2. socks
3. get defective light switch in dining room fixed.

Of course the list of wants is endless, from a 3mm circular needle to a laptop. I shall start a second list titled thneeds - "a thneed is a thing that everyone needs."
