Well, I’m still struggling with the M.E. Saw the doctor today, and he wants me to have a full blood test to make sure there’s nothing else going on. Today I actually managed to get up and dressed (obviously, went to the doctor!), then to Boots, Halfords and Hobbycraft for various bits and bobs. But got back absolutely exhausted and gaga.
After all that hot weather, we’ve finally had some serious rain. Not enough, though, I don’t suppose.
Meanwhile, the poppy plants I grew from seed have exceeded my wildest expectations. The rain might have battered them a bit, but people are actually stopping to look! Love it.
ED took me to Springs Hydro Spa for a pampering day on Saturday, which was just wonderful. I had an exfoliating massage and a facial. Lovely.
Tomorrow – dentist. Then blood test. Then home, sleep, then possibly Stitch, depending on how I am, but I really do like to go there. I have started having a cup of iced herbal tea, which is very nice indeed, and am hoping there will be some of the hazelnut and chocolate dairy-free cake they sell.
Made a dairy-free fruit cake – it’s just dried fruit, orange juice, and flour. You soak the fruit in the orange juice overnight, then add the flour and stick it in the oven. I froze it in slices because nobody else except me likes fruit cake. It’s absolutely delicious. Thank you Deb for the recipe! (google dairy free fruit cake).
The new chocolate regime is working. Instead of getting through approximately half a kilo of chocolate a week, I make 200 gms last 7 days instead. And have lost half a stone (3 kilos). Feeling much better about it all. And I get to eat chocolate Every Single Day.
Ha! that’s it really.
