I’ve noticed this is a popular subject and I’m not surprised as it is something I get asked a lot. By that I mean someone at work asked me what I was having for dinner once… I can read between the lines. So here’s a typical week day in my house;
After walking the dog I go to the fridge to get out my bowl of soaked oats and chia seeds, prepared the night before. Once again I forgot to prepare it the night before. After swearing in my head about this and finding any way I can to blame my wife, daughter or dog for making me forget, I grab some toast with houmous and hope we’ve got enough bananas.
I have a shower then feed/play with my 8 month old while my wife gets in the shower before I have to go to work. I get distracted finding ways to make her giggle or wiping an unknown liquid from my shoulder. Just before leaving for work I realise I should have been spending some of that time making lunch, it would have been some lovely wrap inspired by a YouTube video but probably not tasting like it. Now it will be that packet of couscous kept in my desk drawer. Again this becomes a blame game in my mind, keeping me from picking up my fruit and crisps…twat.
I stop for lunch after already whinging for hours about being hungry. The couscous, although nice, doesn’t do it for me and I spend the rest of the day resentfully munching on almonds, walnuts and raisins which I keep at work incase of an emergency.
I get home, my daughter’s been crying all day and my wife is tearing her hair out. Neither of us can be arsed to cook. I put some pasta on, bung some veg and spices in it and hope for the best. If I can’t be bothered to do even that I’ll have beans on toast. Naturally I put marmite on the toast first.
I finish all this off by throwing half of it down my front and swearing.
