Quickly Now.....

Just a quick update. Have been busy, had Ben's rugby on Saturday morning all the way in Culverden, a good 140km from Rangiora! Nearly a 300km return trip for frickin rugby and under 7's at that!

Went out on Saturday night to the Flying Burrito Brothers. Had a lovely gluten free steak with spanish potoates and salad. Lovely meal but a bit off that we had to leave the restaurant at 8.30pm for the next sitting to come in. Felt like a beast in a cattle yard being herded out.

Dog has been a nutter and has chewed up punga logs that are bordering one of our gardens and has taken to stealing shoes and hiding them.

I had a treat size Dairy Milk chocolate bar last night and feel like shit today. That is my first really bad thing since I went gluten free. It doesn't have gluten in it but I still feel like poo bums today.

I am in the process of doing a bit of organising so I will update soon and it will hopefully be with some good news.

Good grief, I complain when I have to travel the 45-50 odd minutes to Helensville!!! Isn't 7 yr old rugby so cute though? Both mine play, the 9 yr old games are getting a lot more serious but my daughter is only 7 so it is still cute (although some of the parents think it is a bit serious). I remember when she first started @ 5, most of the game was the parents yelling to get the kids to run the right direction :-)

wow that's a huge distance for under 7's!! And I complain at having to travel 10kms!! lol

That'll teach ya on the chocolate, hopefully it makes you feel so bad you won't want to touch the stuff again. (note to self, take own advice!!)

And I can't believe that restaurant!! That is so bad. I wouldn't go back out of principle!!

Tania said...

I don't know how you do it all! Does sound like a long way to travel just for a game, so please tell us that Ben's team won?

As to the chocolate - funny how it makes you feel so bad when you've been doing so good, but even though we know that it doesn't tend to stop us having that treat next time round.

You're as bad as me... today I bought 2 squares of weigh and pay honeycomb as a 'treat' and I felt like crap after it!! Of course it won't make any difference, but I feel so guilty. Oh well :)Like Tania said above, I'm sure I'll do it again hehe
