This Week - 10/10/2021

What if this is all real

This week has been tough. Last week I couldn't even bear the limited amount of self-reflection it would take to write a round-up and just posted some more magazine scans. I don't know if it's the weather or the earlier nights or simply the never ending barrage of bad national news, but I've been mightily depressed. 

The next thing on the horizon is the election and everything it entails. I've got a pre-selection interview next Tuesday. Then it'll be branch selection. Then, providing I've jumped those two hurdles, canvassing for the actual election. (We did a session of door knocking in South Sebastopol yesterday morning. I amazed myself tbh by knocking on about 50 strangers' doors, lol.) Then the count. I feel physically sick every time I even think about it. 

I've been starting to look at job adverts for the local area, etc, because even if I make it through selection it's no guarantee. In the meantime I will try and make a doctor's appointment to ask if I can have my dosage increased again... 

Today, to add insult to injury, my laptop has been on the blink and I've just noticed I have my first grey hair. It's really not been my week!

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
