Food Diary – June 29, 2011 – and… the virtues of working in an office

Principles of working in an office environment: You will start the day pretending you are a yuppie in the Eighties, but with a girly side. You will measure your daily intake of provisions carefully as not to oversnack. Pardon me – ‘overeat’. You very much WILL eat peculiar combinations of foods. You will fail to … More Food Diary – June 29, 2011 – and… the virtues of working in an office

Food Diary – June 28, 2011

Quick one! Breakfast. Then I went outside, and was amazed to be able to hear lightening and SEE fork-lightning, whilst basking in temperaMENTAL sunshine. Though it was very warm. Lunch! Post-running treat. Yoghurt is awfully filling, so the dinner was light. Water count: ~2l. Warm days.

Well, radio and podcasts too I suppose. Considering I need a form of official licence if I wish to survey people on a large scale for my current project, I was hoping that those who read this little blog are willing to provide snapshot versions of opinions.

Food Diary – June 26, 2011 – and… heat exhaustion

So, I have been ridiculous again. Against my better scientific judgement, I was lured outside by “it looks so nice out there”, to go for my run in the middle of the afternoon.

Food Diary – June 25, 2011 – and… job cuts in the emergency services

Stepping outside my “comfort zone” if you like: I know that 900 jobs may not be THAT many, but something about the cuts made to public services is making me feel a bit nervy. We know that corporate fat cats work for their bonuses, but there is something about cutting expenditure within health, education and … More Food Diary – June 25, 2011 – and… job cuts in the emergency services

Food Diary – June 24, 2011 – and… Swedish Midsummer (apologies for deviation from science)

Midsummer is an actual holiday that is gleefully celebrated in Sweden, with lots of shellfish, herring and potatoes, berries and cream, and ‘snaps’. The key element however, is good company. Personally, I left my good company when I left work, but I did stop by the supermarket, tiredly, on my way home, to see what … More Food Diary – June 24, 2011 – and… Swedish Midsummer (apologies for deviation from science)

Food Diary – June 23, 2011 – …and slideshows on WordPress

Does anybody have any experience of putting slideshows on these blogs? Advice would be appreciates, thank you. So, I got up at 0615 hours to go running, and was greeted by Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” on BBC Radio 2, by way of clock radio. What a way to start the day. … More Food Diary – June 23, 2011 – …and slideshows on WordPress
