How sad am I?

I had to do this to try and fit everything in. Now everyone knows what we eat. See how much cholesterol we consume but do we have high cholesterol? No idea, don’t want to know. I’m more interested in my oestrogen and thyroxin levels and hopefully they might be regulated if I cut out all the rubbish from my diet.

At least I have a free day on Tuesday, I’ll try not to get too excited!

I’m wondering how I feel about Costco. Whizz and I are enthusiastic customers of Costco, we love the meat – well that’s out now, and we buy Parmagiano Regiano in big lumps and large blocks of haloumi as well as lovely veg – also out, and tins of all sorts, organic kidney beans, catering sized tins of italian tomatoes and large packs of Pepsi Max. We also get all our cleaning materials from Costco: giant boxes of washing powder and packs of washing up liquid.

I have already said that I won’t buy brands that are found in supermarkets but what of the other brands? I need to investigate Costco.
