I’m so tired but only because I’ve been racing around doing unbelievably energetic things this week. We got a cat! With an hours drive each way to get her. I mowed the lawn and gardened for at least an hour. Yesterday I put together 4 flat packed bookcases and today I was out for about … Continue reading Day Ten: Wow
This time is not like last year when everything tasted like metal for about a month. No-one could really pin down what the reason was but the most likely culprit was candida overgrowth.

Stick with me, it gets better... It's Sunday. I got back from holidays a week ago and I've worked 3 days out of the six and I'm BLAH!
