Just a little over 12 months ago, I mysteriously collapsed in the bathroom and broke my nose. In retrospect I am exceptionally lucky it was only my nose as I’ve heard horrible tales of much worse from the same sort of thing.

The incident proved a revelation to me – I have not worn make-up save for a smidge of mascara and eye pencil, since. No foundation, no powder, no &etc. It has been intensely liberating! I will never go back.

Apart from this new freedom, I’m left with a wee scar and semi-crooked nose, but I’m not overly bothered about either of those.


In other news, now that I don’t have a gym membership I don’t have easy access to scales, so I’d not really weighed myself for a good while.

While I was shopping last week, I impromtu-ly jumped on a set of scales in a store and ZOMGWTFBBQ! I have lost 9kg since the beginning of September! Most of this was from 5:2, but I think not drinking wine for a month I think assisted a bit. Certainly isn’t from exercise because it is only very, very minimal at this point. I don’t think I’ve been 60kg for about 8 years.

Here’s hoping I can sustain the momentum over the Xmas break.


Half day at work tomorrow and then TWENTY SEVEN glorious days off!
