It’s in.

Yes my application is in and it is amazing how good that feels. Firstly it is an affirmation to sit down and write an application to tell someone you are good, and secondly it’s a relief to have it off my plate.

I guess I’ve been waiting for this to happen for at least 12 months.

Now that it’s out of the way I have space in my life to concentrate on me!  I’m going on a bit of a health kick, one that includes moderate amounts of red wine, coffee and tea.  I’ve been reading a book called “Very Wellness” by a local naturopath Val Allen. According to her ‘O’ blood types should avoid wheat and dairy products where possible. Suits me. I prefer goat’s cheese anyway.

Today I spent a lot of money on exotic weird flours like spelt (which is an ancient type of wheat but allowed), rice and a weird bread called Essene Bread.  I also bought a proper blender for smoothies for breakfast. Yum yum.

She also recommends for O’s protein three times a day. Result!

Tonight we had veal steaks “crumbed” in rice flour, egg then sesame seeds and ground almonds.  It was pretty good.

Tomorrow I’m going to try and make her lamb tagine.

I’ve even bought some bathroom scales…
