And everything else improved, too

Perhaps as a sign of my renewed fortune in what has been a bad year thus far, I have found that "Twenty Years After" has improved immensely, largely by virtue of things actually starting to happen. In fact, so great is the improvement that I actually considered buying the first volume in the epic-length third part of the trilogy (a book so long it itself had to be split into three parts, the last of which is "The Man in the Iron Mask").

And, added bonus, this morning for breakfast I had my porridge with very dark chocolate and orange marmalade. It was very much a winner.

Huzzah!

Is that chocolate and orange marmalade, or are they two separate things? Because either sounds amazing! I may have to try, except I was on a diet again really...

Word verification: lochian - I like!

Two seperate things, both added to the porridge simultaneously. The marmalade didn't quite work as I'd expected, though, as I don't think it got enough heat. I'll try adding it a bit earlier next time.

They reckon that people who have a larger breakfast (especially one heavy in whole grains) have a much better chance of sticking to a diet than those who skimp on this meal. So, that shouldn't really be a problem. And very dark chocolate, in moderation at least, is very good for you.

No no no no no no no....

I am SUCH a purist when it comes to cereal. Wholegrains and that is it! Be it AllBran, Porridge naturale, Wheetbix. None of your pigeon-loft scraping (AKA Muesli) for me.

I feel physically sick...
