I’m going on a road trip from Sunday-Thursday so I decided to close my giveaway a day early, I hope no one minds!
I had to jiggle the list a bit because Kim asked not to be entered (she won my last one) and I inadvertently left a ‘ping’ comment too, d’oh. So, the final list of people to numbers was:
2. Lauren (rediscoveringlauren)
5. Lauren (ellemigliore)

Jemima! Email me your address and you should have the parcel by Monday 🙂
Incidentally, on blogger most commenters used to end up with their names linked to their blogs, but I had a few first time commenters on that post and I don’t know how to find your blogs just from your names, so please send me the links, I love getting to know new people.
More housekeeping stuff – I am having a bad case of the disappearing comments again, I noticed on Hannah and Elllie’s blogs that my comments didn’t show up, even hours later. Maybe they went into spam folders? WordPress is odd like that sometimes. I don’t want anyone to think that I’m not reading their blogs. I hope it doesn’t sound a bit arrogant of me to assume that anyone would even notice if I replied or not, but I wouldn’t want anyone to think I didn’t care, cos I do, so there!
More giveaway excitement – I got a package from Aisha this morning after being one of her giveaway winners last week!
Dark chocolate peanut butter – my hero!! I love the bag too, it says ‘save the animals’ all over it, which is highly appropriate for a long term veggie 🙂 I am going to take it out shopping with me later. And I had one of those coconut bars on my porridge a few months ago but haven’t seen them in Holland and Barrett for a while, so guess what I’m having for breakfast tomorrow! Thank you Aisha!
The dark blue background to so many of my photos is my bedroom carpet, by the way. While I was in my bedroom putting some of that stuff away I thought I would take another photo…of my dessert drawer. Oh yes.
Cofresh Pistachio cereal bars, Tesco dairy/gluten free chocolate muffins, Humdinger dairy free tangerine chocolate bars, Montezuma dark chocolate orange and geranium bar (there’s a plain dark chocolate one under that too – they do the best dark chocolate I’ve ever tasted), Humdinger dairy free chocolate buttons, free sample of Lizi’s granola, Provamel strawberry soya milk (waiting to find the bravery to try that one – I used to have weird reactions to soya milk, but I can eat tofu now so I thought I’d give the liquid version another try), Rice and Rice vanilla desserts (ahem…aka sugar in a pot 😛 but fabulous with some dark chocolate melted into them), and some fennel travel sweets. You can’t see them but there’s a package of DIY vegan marshmallows under the muffins as well! It never ceases to amaze me that I can keep things like this in my bedroom now and eat them in a calm, orderly manner rather than staring at them for weeks before throwing them away (last two years) or eating the entire contents of the drawer in one go and then nothing else for a week (previous nine years). Recovery rocks!
And finally, I shall leave you with a photo of a deer eating mum’s roses:
Alas, poor roses.
Three good things about today:
1. Aisha’s package arriving this morning
2. Getting to send my own package out – I really love giving people things 🙂
3. Half a can of artichoke hearts waiting for me in the fridge – I had the best pizza last night and I intend to repeat it today! My gluten free pizza bases come in packets of 2 and have to be used up within 48 hours after opening, which is a great excuse to eat pizza, as if I need another one! Yesterdays consisted of artichokes, onions and pecan nuts on a sauce of tomato puree, pumpkin seed butter and mixed herbs. Being allergic to everything can be fun, pizza always used to be just drowned in cheese when I was a kid, I never thoughts of making it with all the interesting ingredients I use now.
