I should be working...

...but I've got some sort of nasty tummy bug that has just wiped me out. I am SO tired, my head feels stuffed with cotton wool, and my stomach is achey-churney. I've cancelled my face-to-face lesson in Roanne, partly because I don't think I'd be a very good teacher like this, and partly because I don't think I'd be very safe driving the 30 km there or back, feeling as dopey as I do. This week is very thin work-wise (school holidays, I guess) so I could have done with the work, but there's not much to be done.

One student cancelled is lesson last Friday - usually there's a penalty for lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours to go, but I feel it would be unfair to penalise him: his house had been flooded!

So our food this week? I don't really want to think about food, TBH. We're fasting today anyway - I may eat some toast but that's about it. I can't remember the rest of the planned stuff, but I'm sure it will be lovely!

We're going to friends' on Thursday for a Thai Green Curry. I'm making my white chocolate and ginger cheesecake. But excuse me if I don't think about it today.

PomPom: My meal at the Bistrot was lovely - I had salade de gambas flambées, then a lovely steak & chips, then fromage blanc with confiture. The others had salade Lyonnaise, and the Quenelles Lyonnaise with Sauce Nantua. The meal with Cathy was when I started feeling grotty, so I didn't really enjoy that so much...but she made a lovely tomato tart: pastry case, baked blind, then spread with grainy mustard. Then a lot of peeled cooked reduced tomatoes (no juice), with grated cheese on top. Really delicious.

Trish: My weight loss has slowed down now (500g in the last couple of weeks) but I think that is (a) lack of exercise and (b) not being at all careful about what I eat on the other days. I know I need to increase one and decrease the other...But I like the way of eating in general. It fits our lifestyle very well (although Mr FD doesn't really follow it that carefully, claiming that he needs more calories for his cycling.)


  1. My French Dr used to advise plain boiled rice after a tummy bug.

  2. Hi Mouse! I DO hope you are feeling better very soon. A tomato tart sounds delicious.

  3. Fr the weight every person do many things. I prefer juice fast. It is really very effective.

    Mangosteen Juice

  4. Thank you Lucas. I will bear that in mind.
