Today's excuse

Death is bad for diets. And there've been lots of deaths this last week. Death, especially of someone younger than me, makes me say, 'Blow the diet, life is too short.'

I will start again. Soon. But perhaps not today.

Excuses

Had family to stay.
Been busy.
Husband has athlete's foot. (Okay, not really relevant.)
Scale not working.
Diet gone to pot.

But now I'm back with a new all-singing, all-dancing weighing scales from Weightwatchers. I only got it out of the box today and I've already spent too much time shouting at it. Not because of my weight: that's still - amazingly - 140 lbs. But because it says 'tap lightly to switch on'.

I tapped lightly. I pressed long and hard. It seems the scale only turns on when it wants to.

I thought it might be that I hadn't fully removed the bit of tape that stops the battery going dead but in order to check that I had to find the teeniest screwdriver in the house. It looked as though the battery was a bit wonky so I removed and reinserted it and ... the scale still only works when it wants to.

I've put it to one side for a bit to see if it decides to start behaving before I have to take it back to the shop.

Meanwhile I'm trying again.

Very trying.
