Wanting some cake, and needing a break...
Gosh, my second Journal entry this month. I'm on a roll here.

So, what's new? Hmmm, not much I guess. Work. Still working full time. Was in a slight bad mood yesterday, partly because it got really busy yesterday and Victoria kept trying to offload tasks and extra customers onto me so she could get whatever managerial paperwork done she needed. It annoyed me partly because I'm always rushing around with too much to do as it is, and also Victoria just told me to do things, didn't even ask politely. I mean, she is a manager, technically. But experience wise, we're actually on the same level.

Anyhoo, I suspect my annoyance was also because I was just generally feeling tired and groggy. I felt the same way on Friday, and a bit this morning too, and it only occurred to me a couple of hours ago why that might be. Because it's been pretty busy this week, I haven't had much time to go to the supermarket and stock up on food and stuff. As a result, these last few days I've been eating mostly processed stuff, bread/pastry based foods from cafes and stuff rather than making food or buying from the supermarket. This also meant I hadn't eaten much fruit and veg recently.

And it occurred to me just before, that my slump in mood and decrease in energy coincided almost perfectly with when the fruit and veg ran out at home. And this morning, me and Tai went to the supermarket and got food there for breakfast/lunch. I ate once of those fruit salad pottles you can get at New World. And now, sure enough, I'm feeling a lot better. So I guess I need to remember this from now on. Fruit and veg= happy and energetic. Sugar and carbs= sleepy and irritable.

And yeah. Tai's at work at the moment. It's a bit of a shame because Sunday's usually the only day we both have free to spend with one another, but it's alright. At least we spent this morning together. Sadly this week instead of a typical two-day weekend of Sunday and Monday, I have a split week. I have today off, then back at work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, then I have Thursday off, then working Friday and Saturday. I'm not much of a fan of split weeks. It means I don't manage to fully relax on my days off. But oh well.

This last week I had Wednesday off, to make up for working on Monday that week too. Me and Tai had the earlier part of the day both free, so we went up town to the cake shop in Upper Hutt, called Go Cake Yourself. We had a look at the cakes on display, and the lady talked to us a bit about options and pricing for wedding cakes. Our wedding is still just over ten months away, but as I keep being told by many people, January is the peak season for weddings, especially as our wedding is on a Saturday. So this means we have to organise things fairly early if we want to get first dibs on all the best options and vendors. I am a bit excited about designing what our cake will look like, and getting to sample flavours and stuff.

Other than that, not too much else is new. I'm looking forward to April, as we have Easter and a little mini break up to Auckland to look forward to. I could really use the change of scenery and having something to look forward to. At the moment, it feels like my life revolves a little too much around work.

I think also I should get back into baking. It's a good hobby that I get a lot of enjoyment out of.

Oh, and also I ran into Brennan's Mum the other day, at the Mobil petrol station when I stopped to fill up my car. It was great because she filled me in a little on what was going on with the family and with Brennan. I haven't spoken to him in ages and so I often wonder how he's going.

Anyway, I haven't much else to report, so I guess this'll do for now.
