Invitations

I seem to be suffering jetlag from the change in the clocks this weekend. I am very pathetic. I think I just am so used to going to be at about the same sort of time most nights that any break to the routine and I get sleep deprivation. I know that we actually got an extra hours sleep, but I still went to bed later than normal and somehow my body clock take a bit of time to adjust to any change. The sooner I can retire the better.

We went to my parents’ house for dinner last night. We had sausage and mash and G fell off the veggie wagon again and ate pork sausages. Mum would have cooked G something different, but the temptation was too great. I had briefed my family not to comment too much is G ate meat, as I feel that being supportive of such moves is for the greater good. My nephew and sister were there as well and my nephew just does not get that things are not quite so hyper on a week night and tried to entice me into various activities, but without success. This did include him wanting to compare belly buttons, but I declined his kind invitation. I am actually taking Friday off work to do stuff with my nephew so I will have to be on better form then (but I think I will probably still decline the belly button invitation).

I too I'm suffering this week from a bad bout of jetlag. So we can't interest you in a spot of belly dancing then? TFx

TF - I feel particularly tired tonight, so perhaps an early night is called for.

I really do not think the world is ready for any belly dancing from me...

Mrs K hates belly buttons and you cant even talk about them! Vary strange.

Maybe you could introduce Organic meat to G, afterall that also includes humane slaughter of the animal.

Mrs K doesnt like red meat now, urgh. Everytime we go out I have a burger now!

Kahless - if ever I am trying to make polite conversation with Mrs K over the dinner table I will remember not to mention belly buttons.

I am not sure what G's dilemmas about meat are (I feel I should know this and feel a bit ignorant saying that... I do sort of know, I guess I have just normally accepted it!). I think the more ethical the meat the better though, although a dodgy kebab after several drinks has been known to pass G's lips.

When we go out for dinner I normally have meat - and was horrified once to find that we are in a vegetarian Indian restaurant. I felt like my one opportunity to eat meat had been cruelly ripped away from me!
