For four-fifths of our history, our planet was populated by pond scum (:



I may be allergic but i dont care 



nice things that happened this weekend 

  • i have painted my toenails to look like mini eggs
  • i got free samples of newburn bakehouse yummyness
  • kimmy asked me to be maid of honour at her wedding (!!!!!!!!:D!!!!!!)


i miss proper toast…just the smell, and the pools of melted butter are the most comforting thing in the world…

and i really don’t feel right today, and i could do with some toasty comfort..

but i can’t



Someone’s gone and eaten my fruit out of the bleedin fridge! ffs people!

If it’s a shared work fridge, you should only be eating what you put in right? right???

last week I managed to leave a tub of mango in there all weekend and no one touched it, but nooo someone has robbed off with my tub of fruit, so fecking annoyed! never trust dockers i’m telling you, they’re all a bunch of wankers and deserve to all get heat stroke ¬_¬

would it be too much to leave a note? Sandra would have left a note…Sandra leaves notes for everything…

it’d be alright if I didn’t have a SERIOUS FOOD ALLERGY that meant I can’t eat anything else that you twatbags have stashed around this place!

can’t believe i’m this annoyed over fruit…



having to makeshift ice-pick your way into your own freezer like an intrepid arctic explorer, in order to get to the tasty gluten free lunch based noms concealed within for hundreds and thousands of years..



rainy saturdays were made for this.. 

rhubarb tea, sweet brioche, hot water bottle, fluffy blanket, cat, ipod, and a stack of books



fairly sure I’ve just been glutened off a salad.

A SALAD

after already sending it back once because they put mayo on it after I specifically asked for no mayo because they couldn’t guarantee it was safe.

silly contaminated ham salad

won’t be trying that one again

the tomato tasted weird anyway..and I don’t even like tomato..



day 12 - screenshot your desktop 

and in those open windows at the bottom:

chrome: 13 different tabs with journal articles and what not for my dissertation (and tumblr)

volume: which i just have permanently open because it’s easier

adobe reader: 1 ticket to Liverpool Allergy and Free From show waiting to be printed, and an 81 page document detailing the conjectural Kelly family tree

word: dissertation chapter 1 v2, more Kelly family tree based stuff, and a short document detailing the direct family tree from Robert Kinrade (1842) to me

outlook: email to Steve, in which i will attach the above family tree based document

fun stuff, busy day (Y)



Day 10 - If you could only live off one food and beverage for the rest of your days what would they be 

PASTA!

because as proven in my year 8 food tech project, you can do anything with pasta, including dessert (Y) AND it’s one of the few foods I can eat that tastes exactly the same whether its got gluten in it or not (Y)

water

I know it’s boring, but recently i get really paranoid if i don’t have a bottle of water with me :/ I drink 2 litres a day like a good girl, and as such my skin looks fab and i look infinitely less tired than i did before i started drinking vast amounts ^^ plus you can cheat with water and add things to it to make it into teaaa :D



day 8 - things you want to say to 3 people 

Dear Dr Jon Hogg

When you’re done reading my dissertation please burn it. I’d like nothing more to do with it. Thanks

Dear Matt (@ Matthew Street Holland&Barratt)

You really brightened my day. It’s the simple things, like hiding my bread under the desk so that no one else can buy it before i get the chance to, that make me happy, and make my life just that little bit easier. Thank you, I got to have nice sandwiches today :)

Dear Grandy

I wish I had just half the strong will, determination, and bravery that you had.



day 3 - describe your day in great detail 

(from yesterday)

SOOO good  ^^

got up really early, got dressed (working a lilac angel mohair silk mix jumper, with shorts, black tights and lace up boots, with my tatty devine fox necklace)

got dropped off at the train station, got on le train, found naomi, and mished down to ellesmere port

went to ellesmere port civic hall, and then got looooaaadsss of yummy gluten free freebies, and tried loads of stuff including cake, and pizza, and sausages, and beer, and ginger bread men, i got such a good haul of stuff i barely know what to do with it all ^^ 

i bought: an apple and blackberry pie, some trufree crackers and chocolate fingers, 2 packs of warburtons lemon and poppy seed muffins, a hunters pear and ginger pudding (sooo yummy), 2 pots of sticky toffee pudding (om nom nom), some barkat pretzels, anddddd 3 foodamentalist pork pies, so happy ^^ AND with all that i got a free juvela white loaf, some biscotti, and white mix, 4 glutafin rolls, more white mix, and mini crackers, some barkat biscuits, and loadsss of leaflets and recipe ideas ^^ also got a flyer for a coeliac friendly b&b in powys, trip to wales here i come.

thennnn we had some lunch, although wasn’t really needed after all the samples we had, i had an onion bhaji and a cup of tea, naomi had swiss roll, but apparently it wasn’t that great, but the bhaji was tip top (Y)

by this point my arms had started shaking from the weight of all the food, so we had another mish round now that things had got a bit quieter, and we got free strawberry sundaes, and “tested” the dietary specials margherita pizza again just to make sure it was definitely the best thing we’d tried all day :D

thennnnn we left, got the train back, and i got dad to pick me up from the station because my arms had gone to sleep, and i don’t think i’d of been able to cope trying to get on another train, then a bus, so easy option for me thanks (Y) :P

when i got in i emptied alllll the food i’d got onto the floor to demonstrate how happy i was, then watched the haunted mansion whilst texting naomi about how good the pies were, and then callum came round, and my arm fell asleep completely whilst trying to eat doritos :( but we had chicken korma, followed by gf lemon cheesecake, and had an all round jolly night watching celebrity pointless with brian blessed, let’s dance for sport relief, and the end of doctor who: human nature (Y) before discussing in great detail assassin’s creed 3 (SO EXCITED YOU WOULD NOT BELIEVE) and the in’s and out’s of Edward VI’s succession, because we’re intelligent types like that :P

and that is how i spent my saturday ^^



day 2 - 10 likes and dislikes 

likes

  1. warm weather, sunshine streaming through windows kind of nice
  2. being able to snuggle up all cosy with a blanket, and other warm based things, hot water bottles, hot chocolate, jumpers, cat on knee
  3. cake, of all varieties ^^
  4. comfort food, beans, apple based desserts, sausages, cheese toasties, pizza you get the drill
  5. wool shops, and book shops with comfy seats
  6. cute animals, most animals tbh, preferably with no more than 4 legs
  7. pasta! in all forms, i would quite happily live off spaghetti bolognaise forever, take me to italy someone please, and then leave me there, in warm pasta-y goodness
  8. duck ponds
  9. warm sunny days sat in gardens or parks, with pretty dresses and picnics, and the smell of the grass, and the sounds of the sea
  10. trips to the pub, full of sarcastic comments, and laughs

dislikes

  1. amaretto, or anything associated with almonds and the resulting flavour
  2. insecty things flying at me or near me
  3. dickheads
  4. weirdos on buses
  5. people who start raving over someone who has been doing well for years and years albeit not necessarily in the mainstream radar, then manages to get into the charts, and these people go on and on and on about how amazing they are, and how they’re their biggest ‘fans’, and then they lose interest within seconds ¬_¬ 
  6. the crapness of most gluten free bread
  7. watching injections or any kind of injury on tv, real or otherwise
  8. slow people, or ‘pavement drifters’, the ones who somehow manage to take up the whole pavement when you’re trying to get somewhere at a reasonable pace, and it is physically impossible to get round them :@ see also: ‘shop drifters’ particularly in primark, ffs hate that shop
  9. people who have pets but don’t care about them, resulting in neglect or abuse
  10. OMG windows in the dark! like if it’s pitch black outside, and the lights are on inside, and you can’t see what’s outside, literally THE scariest thing ever. I have to close the curtains when it gets dark, can’t leave them open, just don’t like it :/


so about 5 minutes ago I saw a post about gluten free (and everything else free) cosmetics company, afterglowcosmetics.co.uk

i went straight to their gluten free section to see what they had to say about being a gluten free company..

and in that section it explains how most vitamin E in cosmetics is derived from wheat

the only allergic reaction to a cosmetic I have had was to my dr organic vitamin E moisturiser…where my eyes inflated and were all red and sore for days, and i looked like some kind of reaction panda

IF vitamin e = wheat = horrible reaction THIS THEREFORE explains everything

excuse me whilst i go and check every single thing i own and have a cry about it…I always get sore irritated eyes if i wear mascara for too long, so i have to take it off and sit there with cooling things on my eyes…is this connected? as if things weren’t already complicated enough

*sulks*



how can i possibly be in this much pain, i haven’t even touched any wheat today >_< yesterday i caved and ate a singular dorito, completely fine, today i had nothing, even went to the trouble of finding a starbucks where they hadn’t sold out of gf sandwiches just to find reasonably nice noms ¬_¬

if this is still this bug thing, it needs to stop now, it’s been over a week ffs

owiie >_< 



couldn’t even be bothered updating about the bus pass situation, its been far too stressful

thursday i was just so exhausted i came in, got my pyjamas on and curled up in a ball under a blanket on the sofa, despite the fact i was starving. i just didn’t care anymore. but i did get gf fish finger butties out of it so it’s all good on that front (Y)

anyway, arriva say my pass is on its way, but when you use the royal mail track and trace system, or one of them..because for some reason there’s two…on one it says it’s on its way, and on the other the number isn’t recognised as per last week. so mum phoned the track and trace ‘hotline’ whilst i was at my seminar, and they said to give it until saturday, and then get back in touch with arriva ¬_¬ because theyyy have to report it lost, otherwise i won’t get my money back, this is just a complete, unbelievable, farce and a half

click please chaps and chappettes, i want my dragon to hatchhh
