Yesterday's decision: Choosing Pesto Spaghetti

We had a great Friday night out, with our friend Julie who is staying for the weekend, plus Matt & Jackie, Alice & Eddie. We met at the Wings Lounge, a bar styled like an plane, with aeroplane seats and pretend plane windows. I was quite good and had beer not wine (takes me longer to drink) and when we ate out, I choose a small portion of pesto spaghetti, which was the 'healthiest' choice on the menu! I fear I might put on weight this week, since we've been out eating and drinking 3 times, but hopefully I will have stayed the same!

Today's decision: Uninstalling Microsoft Office

I really did NOT want to have to do this, this weekend, but needs must! My laptop (3 years old, 20gb hard drive) is having a relapse, and I'm trying to prevent it going terminal. I've got 2 partitions. C should be just for the operating system (6gb) and D for apps and data (12gb). However, as time has gone on, I forgot and installed things onto C. In the last weeks, I've got down to 50mb on C and the system really doesn't like it. So today I unistalled as many programmes as I could and then eventually decided that at 250mb I should really kill Office and then move it to the D partition. Uninstalled fine, and have just run disk defrag - it took 5 hours! Fingers crossed that Office reinstalls again on C otherwise I am truly, truly f***ed, sorry, in the doo-doo.
