Playing roulette & It's a knockout.

Freezer roulette that is, I'm getting a bag out of the freezer when I get up & when I get home I make a meal out of whatever I've defrosted, so far we haven't had anything inedible.

I went up to bed a couple of nights ago, didn't bother to turn on the lights. I misjudged where I was standing, bent forward to take off my knickers and clocked my forehead on the chest of drawers. I now have a bruise & a small scab, what a ditz I am.

Dgd Eileen stayed over on Friday night, we were up and making sprinkle cakes by 8 o'clock this morning!

I have fallen of the diet with an almighty thump this week, sometimes I get thoroughly sick to death of dry toast for breakfast and a plain jacket potato for lunch. We have lots of rhubarb coming up in the garden, so I started to eat stewed rhubarb, HM low fat plain yogurt with salt and sugar free muesli (after picking out all the nuts & dried fruit out of the mix). I thought this was a pretty safe bet, but no, I've been adding a couple of spoonfuls of sugar when I cook the rhubarb, two tsp to 8 portions. This, the practice nurse has told me, is a no no, but I really don't think I can eat unsweetened rhubarb, hey ho, back to the dry toast!
The jacket potatoes are occasionally eaten with cottage cheese or baked beans, but there is a limit to how often I can eat beans, or I will need a kite.

I know this is an old post, but would like to asvise putting chalk on your rhubarb. It will react with the acid, and then you will only need very little sugar. You may need to google the exact ingredient, it is called 'krijt' in Dutch, the white stuff teachers use to write on the blacboard.


Non-moving day and funny questions.

We were intending to move on today but the next two places on our journey are full. So we will stay here at Woolhampton until Monday, when I...
