I wake up to the aroma of garlic frying. It takes me back to living at home and my mum cooking and I remember that she passed away earlier this year. My mum was a great cook and from a young age we had to help her in the kitchen, peeling garlic, chopping vegetables, washing up. We always seemed to have a houseful of people and food, lots of it, was the centre of all social gatherings for friends and family the result being I've always had a 'healthy' appetite and I have always struggled with my weight.
I let my mind remember some of the good times we had when I was young and then go downstairs where my son's girlfriend is having garlic mushrooms on toast. They smell and look so good I decide to make them instead of toast my portobello mushrooms and have them with the smoke salmon and poached egg. Another delicious brunch.
I contemplate going to the gym but procrastinate watching X-Factor and Strictly from last night and catching up on a few household chores.
Later that evening my son and his girlfriend bring out a jam roly-poly and custard. How my mouth salivates with the smell wafting from the kitchen. How am I going to resist this. I say I will just have a bowl of custard when asked but when I check the carbohydrates in the custard I change my mind. I am not hungry and I have done so well. I have a teaspoon of jam roly-poly and leave them to it while I go for a walk to build up my steps. When I get home they have finished it. Saved for another day.
