A great big thanks to David and Sandra for their gifts via Oxfam. I have been told that total raised to date is $135. That's wonderful. Feel free to forward my blog to your friends, if you have found it interesting:
Breakfast - Oats. Again. I didn't weigh the portion out, I just eyeballed it. Big mistake. The water wasn't soaked in properly so they were a bit dry. There was far too much and I couldn't finish it. I felt like I should, but I just couldn't do it. What a waste.
Lunch - The final 2 frittatas. Looking a little grey now, it's been 4 days since those veges were cooked. I microwaved them until they were piping hot to try and kill off anything gross. Others in the office said "Oh, they smell nice". I couldn't much agree. A bit sick of same old same old. Glad to see the back of them.
More free food at work for me to decline. Corinne was so kind; she emailed me in advance to say there was fudge, that she had saved me a bit at home and she would give it to me on Friday. Aww.
Much as it would be lovely to have cake and ice cream and a big caramel latte with a pile of whipped cream on top, what I am really craving is green veges. I'd love some crisp steamed asparagus with hollandaise, wilted spinach with garlic, blanched broccoli with toasted almonds. And a crispy crunch chicken schnitzel. I know I know. A chicken's not a vegetable.
After work I had to go to the Dr to get a vaccination in anticipation of my university placement next year. I had a shot in my left arm last night and in my right arm tonight. Feeling a little sorry for myself. Poked and prodded but no jelly bean for me.
And because I had to sit around in the office, the way you do when they want to make sure you aren't going to pass out following a shot, I didn't get home until nearly 6. No afternoon tea to see my through. I didn't get a chance to go to the supermarket to spend my final $1.52 so I had to save some of my dinner allocation to make tomorrow's lunch. That made for a somewhat measly dinner.
Dinner - 3 piklet type things made with self raising flour and water, served with quite a lot of strawberry jam. They were surprisingly nice and surprisingly satisfying.
I had saved my last apple for supper but I didn't really feel like I wanted it so saved it for my final day. It seems strange to think that after just a few days my appetite has changed, but perhaps it has. Didn't finish breakfast. Full after lunch. Small tea and didn't feel like supper???
At a rough guess I think I ate less than $1 worth of food today. It’s nowhere near enough to fill my nutritional needs.
