Recovering nicely!


to all you gorgeous people, wishing me a good recovery. I love you all and I have been working very hard at relaxing and am well on the way to full health.

For months I have had to eliminate all fat from my diet and have been craving after chips, fried chicken, pizza and doughnuts, not to mention trading off the fat-content of a portion of steamed chicken against that of a latte or two (I’m addicted to latte, you know!) and experimenting with the ideal ratio of chocolate to painkillers.

Finally the good old NHS decided to bring the torture of limited food choices to an end and to chop out the offending organ and now that I can eat whatever takes my fancy again, all I want is Chicken Salad, raw veggies and juicy fruit.

The human psyche is a strange thing, of course once freed from my restrictions I attacked a jar of peanut butter and a 300g bar of chocolate whiled away a couple of blissful hours as I allowed each square to melt on my tongue and slide down my throat.

Since then and a scrumtious bacon and egg butty later; all cravings seem to have vanished and though I will never turn down a tasty morsel thrust my way, the urgency to devour anything with a fat content of 50% or more is no more.

I am hoping that the powers that be see this and accept that the only way to stop me from wanting more and more of something is to give me access to all I crave. So in other words if I was rich, all my desires will be assuaged.

If past experience is anything to go by, the new craving manifesting itself is an exception to that theory.

During my recovery I am to refrain from activities that raise my heart rate, so no gym and no work for a while.

So I am really craving work satisfaction - oh boy, I almost feel sorry for the first clients that walk in and crawl out my door, which will hopefully be soon. ;oP


Here’s mud in your eye!


Or in my case smoothie in your eye, to be precise Tesco’s new Plum, Red Grape & Pear Smoothie and delicious it is too.

However not recommended as eye wash. So why did I decide to put some in my eye?

Well, don’t be silly! Of course I didn’t do it on purpose and I couldn’t do this again if I tried.

Truth is I was being lazy and juvenile, so as there wasn’t much smoothie left in the carton
– which is actually a bit of a concern, hmm, someone must have snuck in in the night and helped themselves, this will need to be investigated. Anyhow, I digress –
I decided rather than having to wash a cup or glass later I’d drink straight from the carton.

mischeviousFeeling a bit like a naughty little girl again I gave it a good shake – everyone knows smoothie is better when it’s frothy – before I opened it and took a swig. Yum! Naughty and tasty feels good! So I gave the carton another swirl and promptly found myself experiencing the not too pleasant feeling of fruity froth in the right eye.

How on earth did a thick gloopy liquid manage to ‘jump’ from a carton, less than a quarter full, through a 10p size hole into my eye? And how can such a small drop of tasty liquid sting like that! Ouch!

That will teach me to try to turn back time and relive childhood naughtiness, from now on I shall behave as it is appropriate for my age – well, at least when it comes to drinking smoothies.

Now it is time to hunt the ‘phantom fruity goodness drinker’. I’m sure he/she also steals my chocolate! Grr!


Chocolates and carpet burn

Thank you to D.

those chocolates are melting in my mouth and sliding down my throat as smoothly as the other present you gave me ;o).

Thankfully I avoided developing carpet burn and I hope your knees have recovered too.
We must do it again soon.
