Baking a loaf of bread turned frisbee...

My sweethearts,

It is November. The wind is really strong, and the rain is relentless. Hurricane Thomas has been to visit, and he is not a happy bunny. Walked down Shop Street at 6pm on a Sunday evening, and the street was deserted, it was the strangest thing.

I baked a loaf of bread in the oven last night. It's a mixture of a lovely wheat-free bread. The ingredients included oats, rice flour, rye flour and barley flour. But, with the size of the tin, and the size of the mixture, the result was a frisbee loaf. I'm really hopeful the next loaf will be thick enough to cut a good slice for a sandwich.

The last few weeks have been fun-filled, with * a short trip to Boston for my cousin Colin Daley's wedding to the beautiful Ida, * a weekend away to An Oireachtais Irish speaking festival in Killarney Co. Kerry, * and the Japanese Film Festival in Galway city.
So, am just looking forward to the next few weekends being all to myself. I have so much studying to do for the next few weeks, so am happy to have done all that socialising.

Being someone that goes from eating good to bad very frequently, it really can be a struggle to stick to the good side for lengths of time. I do try though. Was eating wheat bread a lot until last Thursday 4th, and have gone back to eating wheatfree bread. You can get a loaf of spelt bread from the bakery these days at between €2.40 to €3. There may be only a few slices, but you do feel full and happy after 2 slices of that bread.
The fillings I have been using the last few days have been: ham/tuna, grated light cheese, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers, chopped cabbage, grated carrot, and light butter/ light mayonnaise. You should not buy a lot of fresh produce if you are eating for one, having too much in the fridge can actually turn you off eating the produce because there is too much selection. It makes me rebel and end up eating something bad.
If I need a snack, I will have multigrain rice cakes in the cupboard, and top it with a tiny bit of grated cheese and tiny ham/tuna. Or, there will be a treatsize chocolate in the fridge for me. I can't buy a large pack of treatsize chocolates to portion them out, as I would probably eat the whole pack in 1 or 2 days (this is from experience).

Am looking for information on either an Android phone or a Japanese style phone in Ireland. There is not much information to be found on the Japanese style in Ireland, which is really saddening, because they are the coolest phone. As for Android, it has been on the market in Ireland for the last few months, but still very little information on what phones the Android OS is on.

More news tomorrow... M x
