Winter’s log, earthdate 201602.04 – Part 2

Well, we’re back from dinner, and a very nice meal it was too! 🙂 As I mentioned before, we went to the East Empress Bistro, and I ended up having pretty much what I had last time I was there! For “Starters” – excuse me for a moment, please, but can anyone tell me, seriously, when the term “Entree” – a word which denotes “entry”, or the part of the meal which “enters” the dining room first – get changed to “Starters” (such a terribly plebeian and pedestrian word!) and the term Main Meal suddenly become an Entree, or an “entry” dish?! Anyway, back to what I was waffling on about – here we go – for “Starters” I had the three little fried pork dumplings (each one is about as large as your common or garden variety “dim sum”) – I fergit what they’re called now – and then I had the Teriyaki chicken, which was so good I ate nearly all of it (Julian had to help me eat it! I couldn’t help him eat his though, because he took the opportunity of eating “fishy” things!) Julian had the chicken satay for “Starters”, and some sort of calamari for his main meal. I was going to have a different dessert this time around – but one look at the dessert menu convinced me to stay with the “Passionfruit Frenzy”, with its wonderful mixture of passionfruit ice cream. passionfruit sauce, passionfruit “pulp” (for want of a better word!), and the layer of strawberry and meringue underneath it all! Heaven in a spoonful! 🙂 Julian had the East Empress Sundae, which had green tea ice cream, chocolate sauce, meringue and strawberry in it – I think I got the better deal! 😉 I also had a Martini when we got there, and a half glass of wine with the meal, and quite frankly, it was a lot better than Julian driving up to the supermarket and looking for inspiration, and then coming home and cooking it – on his Birthday! He can do that tomorrow night! 😉

Weigh-in this morning. Maybe those horrible pills are starting to kick in after all! I went up two points this morning, from 62.3kg to 62.5kg – and I have a funny sort of feeling that I might just be up a bit more tomorrow morning! Oh well, as I keep saying, life is to be lived, and enjoyed as much as possible – not cringed at!

Tomorrow, as I mentioned in Part 1, I have my Warfarin blood test, which hopefully we’ll be able to get done a lot earlier than we normally do – we’ve noticed that the later we go, the more people there are in the waiting room, and the longer we have to sit and wait to be called in for a three-second jab of a needle! Anyway, I’m hoping we can get in early, because we have quite a bit of shopping to do afterwards – Julian has to get his Birthday Present (a new Tablet because his old one is dying) I need to get some long sleeve and/or three-quarter sleeve Tee-shirts from either Katies or Millers, with which to hide my hideously “ragged” arms, and Julian really, really needs a haircut – badly! So that’ll probably be our day tomorrow – unfortunately it’ll mean another fulsome meal – but I’m sure we’ll be able to force ourselves to survive it! 😉 And once again, that’s about it from me for this evening! Don’t forget to drop in again tomorrow night – I’m sure you’re all waiting with bated breath to find out if my weight skyrocketed, what with those ‘orrible little pills, and not one, but two meals out – and what the results of my blood test were, and if Julian’s had all his hairs shaved off! I’m sure there’ll be lots more to regale all of you with tomorrow night, so… don’t miss out! OK? However until tomorrow night, please try very hard to bee good, don’t forget that one must dare to be happy… and remember to keep cool – or warm – depending on how you like it, to drive carefully, and to look after yourselves… but please, most of all, remember to stay safe! 🙂 ciao, all! 🙂
