Breaking my duck

Been a little quiet around here, hasn’t it?

2012: time on my hands, money in the bank – surely my blogging should have shot through the roof? And that was, indeed, the theory I had. But instead, I’ve been following the patented Adders Plan Diet for dealing with your festive weight-gain:

  1. Get very ill on Boxing Day evening
  2. Spend the next 10 days continuing to be very ill
  3. Barely eat for the majority of that time

The pounds just fall off, I can tell you. You also end up exhausted, a little shaky, and somewhat scared of food. But hey, no pain, no gain.

Thankfully, for the last 48 hours or so I’ve been eating normally again, and have got much of my strength back. However, at least one pair of jeans now look like comedy clown trousers when I put them on…

Which is a rather long-winded way of saying: normal blogging service resumes now.
