Struggling this week. Food is difficult, especially avoiding snacks.

Went into the city today for a regular activity, on the way home one of three boys around 17, shouted out "cream cakes" at me. I am fed up of people thinking they can abuse me in the street. So I gave them back as good as i got.
"Please come over here and say that to my face."
"Cream Cakes," screamed the lad again. I gave chase, and crossed the road.
"Watch out she's going to eat you," said one lad. "Sausage rolls."
"Why do you think its okay to abuse people in the street" I screamed.
They went into a shop, I followed them and bellowed after them, "abusing people is not right." I could see people looking at me. I didn't care. For once I had my say.

Was wondering about you the other day as I've set myself a writing goal this year, and I wondered: does violet still do the NANOMAMO (I know that isn't correct, but it's always what I want to say when I think of the novel writing month). My goal is much less ambition, though. I'm giving myself a year to put out a draft. What are you up to these days?

You are SO right! I'm so glad there are people like you who are brave enough to talk back to them. You didn't just stand up for yourself- you did it for all people who are body-conscious. Well done. :) x
