I stopped in at Sainsbury's last week and surprisingly got heckled by the church organist as I walked across the car park
" going in for a scotch egg?" She cackled loudly
She is the third person to question my supermarket visits recently
She reads the blog!
Yesterday I counted 14 scotch egg wrappers hidden away around the Berlingo....this morning I took my old weightwatchers point counter to Marks & Spencer to check the calorific total of their luxury Lincolnshire Range . ( which is pure heaven ambrosia in breadcrumbs I must say)
12 points! 12 friggin points!
That's nearly half a day's points in two eggs!
It's no wonder I am starting to waddle again
Seeing my shock a middle aged bored shelf stacker came over and asked if I needed any help
" I need to put the scotch eggs down....and I need to walk away from the scotch eggs that's what I bloody well need to do" I told her
She laughed and tapped her arse with her hand
" don't we all love" .
So I rang the " Scotch egg abuse help line " and now have formulated a controlled scotch egg eating plan in conjunction with weightwatchers, (an organisation I shall be rejoining next week)
From today I will allow myself just two ( non luxury) scotch eggs a week.
And I was proud of myself when I walked out of the supermarket this morning without picking up a packet!
Mind you I did linger just a tad too long next to a rather attractive display of Melton Mowbray miniature pork pies..............
