I don’t like Mondays. Mmmmm not the lyrics to the song just not liking Mondays. It is still pitch black when I leave in the morning and jolly chilly too. I’d far rather be snuggled up in bed to be honest.
But work it is – it has to be done.
It’s not been a bad day at work – a little manic, but I have had worse.
I went to the doctors today about my raised cholesterol and explained I was worried that - according to the internet which is the root of many worries - it is high and I am doing every single thing already that is meant to reduce cholesterol. I was told it was Ok and they couldn't treat everyone with pills and my ratios were fine so I'd be fine. Mmmmm, Whilst i am pleased I don't need to take pills I wasn't entirely convinced by the argument I have to say!
I have a page to share today which I made at the weekend.
I am trying to cover the more unusual elements of our holiday and this page was another of the restaurants we like to eat at – The Cheesecake Factory.
The Cheesecake factory menu reads like a reasonably substantial novel – and there are so many things on it that I would actually like to eat. Quite unusual for me as I am a fussy eater.
However their speciality is obviously the cheesecake, although we never usually manage to make it to dessert.
We have learned to our cost that the best way is to order dessert to go. Nij has a favourite cheesecake –the raspberry Truffle. I have toyed with different desserts in the past but have now accepted that eh is right and that one is the clear winner.
The funny story about the cheesecake was that when we were in Las Vegas on the trip, having already eaten at the Cheesecake Factory at fashion Island in Newport Beach, we were so desperate for raspberry truffle cheesecake Nij walked all the way from the hotel down to The Forum to get some to take away. Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed it he was a little irritated to find that The Grand Lux Café at the Venetian where we always stay was a sister to the cheesecake factory and they sold it there. Hey ho – you live and learn.
Today I am thankful for
- Memories of great holidays
- Plenty of walking
