After last weeks disaster I started this week determined to stick to my diet and get back on track. And I didn’t do too bad, at least most of the time I didn’t. It was a bit of a tough week so by Saturday I really felt like I needed a bit of a treat.
Now the town where I live, South Shields, is home to one of the best Fish and Chip restaurants in the UK. And don’t take my word for it. Ask Patrick Stewart, David Miliband, Alison Steadman, David Walliams, Tony Blair or even Sting because they’re just a few of the celebrities who’ve enjoy the delights served up by Colmans.
So on a rainy day, when you want to watch the summer parade without getting wet, it really is the perfect place to eat. So off we went. Me, my youngest son and my Grandson. We got a table in the window and watched the parade go by.
And while I’m not a big fan of fish I do love fresh cooked chips and count myself as a bit of a connoisseur when it comes to chicken chicken nuggets which in this case are made with big chunks of chicken.
So when I got weighed this morning I was hoping I would have lost some weight but wasn’t really convinced I had. And the result is…………….
A brilliant 4 pound. Which, as I followed my chips with a large ice cream, I am more than happy with. And of course that means another £4 to the Charlie Cookson Foundation.
