It's funny how one little crusket can make a differnece!

Cruskets---It almost feels like I am eating ‘normal’ food now. These cracker type biscuits are my latest addition to the growing number of foods I can eat, since my operation. I still don’t eat bread or pasta, but that won’t be for long. In the meantime I have started eating one Crusket a day. OK, that sounds pathetic, but given the ‘base’ from which I have come (hey---I said base, not basement!) that is real progress. It’s more about what I can put on top of the crusket that counts. Take today for example. I spread a thin layer of vegemite and then placed some spinach and cottage cheese on that. Finally I added a softly poached egg. It looked great and you have no idea how good it felt eating that. The difference between that meal and my past efforts? ---Well the ‘smallness’ and the healthiness are a pretty good comparison. I was easily able to manage the meal and I am still losing weight relatively easily. Damn, I didn’t take a picture. I’m off to take Perdy for a walk, even though it is raining. I dare not think about what she will get up to if I don’t!

Chad--- well I never!

What a surprise; Chad of all places. I hope you keep reading my blogs. I'd love to see more of you. I often wonder what life is like in country, surrounded as you are by the Sahara and countries that are having a bit of a biff with Islamic rebels. Hopefully you stay peaceful.

Politicians and wanna be 'copies' beware--The Civilian is on your case!

Good on you Mr Uffindell, for your 'satirical' efforts in reporting the 'news.' New Zealand has been waiting for such a momentous mouthpiece that tells us as it 'could be.' That Dear Leader,' Colin Craig, Leader of the fledgling Conservative Party, and possible 'bedfellow' for John Key and the National Party (who is so sad that his soul mate,  Banksie appears to be slipping beneath the sheets) Takes offence is a warning shot across the bows that if he ever gets into Parliament he will bore us to death. We shall all be checking out the website for The Civilian in order to keep abreast of important 'events' and to make sure our politicians are doping what we sent them to 'Play School' to do-----run the country and keep us happy. If they fail in this simple duty, then The Civilian will rip into them and expose their 'soft parts' so that 'we,' the populace will take revenge upon them at the first opportunity. Any politician not meeting the minimum standard (and that is very low) will be demoted to the role that the rest of 'us' face on a daily basis. Such is life. For those aspiring 'Play School' candidates, lighten up and smell the aroma of the coffee, drifting from the secure windows of the cafes in the building to which you wish to gain access.
