I’m sick.


I swear, since I started the new role in April, I’ve definitely had two colds, and one killer headache (I’d like to call it a migraine, but it wasn’t).

Anyhow, despite being sick, I did make it to Foodcraft which broke the internet recently with it’s Tella Ball shake – a nutella shake with a nutella filled donut skewered on top with the straw.  It was not all that – but then perhaps my taste buds aren’t normal?  The BF has two of the donuts in the evening (see, I have SOME self control) and I advised him to heat them which definitely helped.  He also disclosed he’s never had Nutella?  If that’s not a reason to head to Europe pronto nothing is!

My super sweet tooth has somewhat settled of late – some days, I’ve not devoured sweeties like it’s going out of fashion (of note, today, Monday, Saturday, Friday too I think).  Today I weighed in when I woke up at about 2pm and I was on par with the weigh in before last, so slowly the fasting is working, despite some days being far more calorific than ‘normal’.

Oh, I mastered laundry in a new way this weekend – I finally tried a concoction of dish liquid and hydrogen peroxide, painted on the under arm stains (twice, with an hour in between) worked very well. I’m sort of asking why I waited so long!  Have you ever tried this, or do you have magical deodorant that doesn’t stain?

  1. I read in the paper that today is the 92nd day of winter. That is beyond endurance – no wonder there's still colds afoot! I have 4-5 kids absent in most of my classes at work at the moment. Hope you feel better soon!

    I hadn't tasted Nutella until this year either! What a mis-spent youth!

    I haven't tried that stain-remover but I do use the Sard Wonder Stick and…it's a wonder. And I only use deodorant when it's really hot or muggy, so I try to avoid it with light shirts that will easily stain.

    Get well soon!

    1. I can't believe it was still under 10C on the drive in the first day of sping :s

      Sard wonder stick huh – my mum also swears by it. I used some sort of soap to get stains out, but it's a lot of rubbing to work, unlike the peroxide mix. I'm jealous you can do without deodorant!

  2. People who haven’t eaten Nutella? Who are these strange ones? These outliers?

    As to underarm deodorant I use Mitchem. But to stop marking on clothes, I make sure my underarm areas are dry first. Quick wipe with a towel too sometimes.
