I got tagged by Sparky's Girl to reveal what is in my purse.
Unfortunately, I don't have a purse anymore because last night I was mugged. I wish it was just one of my feeble attempts to be funny but alas it is true.
Some c^nt [only word I can think of] attacked and robbed me outside my back gate. I gave chase but to no avail.
What kind of world do we live in? Did I look like a victim? If I am so strong why didn't I tackle him to the ground before he could get away?
I'm off to self defense training tomorrow because this is never going to happen again.
There are positives though - there are strangers who are exceptionally kind, Police who are good at their jobs, and husbands who run off into the night with a kitchen knife in their back pocket. I didn't get hurt, I reacted with anger rather than fear, I only lost my wallet and not my phone, blackberry, keys or work security pass, my debit and credit cards were cancelled before they were used and I will be much more careful in future. I was contemplating learning martial arts before this so it has given me impetus to enrol in a class.
Notwithstanding all that -- if the laws of attraction are true [the Secret blah blah ...] then God know why I am attracting all this crap into my life. Cat dies ... get mugged ... bloat up like a balloon ... all in the space of a week.
Speaking of bloating up like a balloon, the pill is officially banned. I have been consistently significantly over 62kg for the past week which is above my "ceiling". I didn't have a real period last week, it was just spotting because now I am in the midst of serious PMT. No better than off the pill - just larger boobs to be even more painful. Stopped taking the pill two nights ago and this morning I am down to 61.9kg so an obvious correlation.
Going to have an easy carb-up tomorrow - probably just porridge, toast and a bit of fruit in addition to my usual fare. I will try to stick to lowish calories.
Hope your life is better than mine!!
