please excuse my little 'leave of absence'...i have been struggling with my 'creative' juices.
i believe this is all down to my lacking a daily dietary intake of chocolate spread...it has been five days since the 'horror' of the empty jar discovery.
five days of no 'hearty start' to the day...five days of going to the cupboard to grab the white bread (yes white, none of this healthy brown grainy stuff) only to feel my heart sink when the realization of my cadbury's chocolate spread 'morning moment' was not to be...
day 1 : toast with dark chocolate sauce on top...just so wrong it's not funny, managed two mouthfuls and couple of choking sobs...
day 2 : organic toasted rice flakes (belonging to our #1 and #2)...managed to eat half a bowl but only when covered in two heaped spoons of sugar.
(after 48 hours i am starting to get withdrawal symptoms...my hands are shaking)
day 3 : defrosted croissant (found lurking near the mouse in the freezer)...probably edible if i hadn't caused it 'trauma' with the microwave.
(by now the 'sweating' is setting in)
day 4 : organic oat bran flakes (belonging to my man)...little pieces of cardboard...once again made digestible with several large helpings of sugar.
(by now i have starting 'babbling' to myself and 'twitching' on occasion)
day 5 : a banana, not a nice one, but the last one in the fruit bowl that no one wants and is destined for the compost heap but out of desperation i eat it...covered in milk with plenty of sugar and trying not to look at the bruises...
(and yes dear readers, some strange 'hair pulling' movements)
so there you have it...apparently my man informs me it will take two weeks for my shipment to come...i have 9 days left.
it is quite obvious i am 'good for nothing' without my cadbury's chocolate spread (stop suggesting "nutella" cause it ain't the same)...my ability to ramble on my blog is near on impossible ("technically Tif that isn't true...you have managed quite a good ramble today"...i shall ignore you saying that).
my ability 'to craft' has been jeopardized by my weakening state...my usual 'slips per day' ratio has been greatly diminished...and i am fearing for my 'photographing' skills tomorrow when i start day 6 on a 'rivita crispbread'...
she is hoping the calvary (fedex) arrives sooner than expected ~ Tif
footnote : thank goodness my Dad has had a 'hearty' breakfast across the pond...he is 'on the ball' and kindly pointed out to me that it is not 'calvary' that i need but 'cavalry',
you see what happens without my 'daily dose'...the 'madness' is setting in :)
