day 30


8.30pm: Dear porridge,

I am writing to say thank you. Thank you, and goodbye. Without you, I do not think I would have made it through these 30 stomach-rumbling days - and for that I am eternally grateful.

However, there is simply no getting around the fact that, without a large helping of sugar/syrup/fruit or even salt, you taste like the smell of damp wool.

Best regards and kindest wishes,

Ruth xx

7am: Wake up to a hung parliament... and the possibility of absolutely stuffing my face.
