Not Nano Day 7  
Abject failure: 0 words.

I have an excellent set of excuses, though. We were up in the mountains for Mr B to compete in a martial arts tournament, which ended in us spending hours at the hospital checking to see if he had had his wrist broken when it was thwacked soundly. Happily, it looks as though it might just be a massive amount of bruising and his tendon hating on him, as well it ought.

We made it back in time for the food afterwards (and to find that really lovely people had come first and second on the day), but alas, disasters were not concluded. One of my favourite kids sai 'Have you tried my meatballs?' I asked him if they contained pig, to which I am allergic. 'Nope, all beef,' he replied. I bit into one, which was very tasty, but seemed a bit odd to me though I couldn't tell why, so gave the other half to Mr B.

And then I realised. Cheese. To which I am also allergic. Happily, both my food allergies are minor: I just throw up rather than collapse. And I nearly got away with it, as sometimes it just nauseates me when I have a small amount of something. But sadly, it was not to be. My deepest apoologies to anyone in Hazelbrook who used the bus stop around 10 last night. At least it was a bit away from the stop, but I didn't quite make it as far as the garden bed I was aiming for. Happily, it was raining, so evidence should have been washed away before too long.

A bugger of a day all round, as there were many of our favourite people there who we wished to spend more time with, and the whole thing was beautifully run and catered. And now I need to tidy the whole house for my friend who is staying tonight, so I suspect today's word count will also be pants. Ah well. Tomorrow will be better!

PS: One upside in all the running around sorting Mr B's kit and getting him cuppas while at the hospital: 18,000 steps in just normal activity with no set walks involved!

Illness and injury prevailed, yeah?

Prevailed, or utterly snotted us ;-)

I heard it was a good event, but am sorry to hear of personal disasters! I hope you feel better, and that Mr B's wrist heals fast and cleanly.

It was terrific, I just wish we could have stayed for more of it. Alas, I went downhill as fast as Mr B's wrist was swelling! Poor Hazelbrook bus stop. Poor digestive system ...

I also had nasty food issues recently. Woman who runs the cafe who is normally wonderful about gluten free stuff forgot she put breadcrumbs in the lamb burger. We normally have beef burgers fine but yeah. We were in a rush and didn't recheck properly but yeah, lovely couple of hours spent over a toilet in Bathurst Maccas. I have spent way too much of my life spewing in maccas bathrooms. Really wasn't sure if I was going to make it to the bathroom though so yay for that.

Sorry you had to deal with that too.

Is it just cheese or all dairy?

Bugger! That is no fun at all, though I will applaud the hygeine standards of the average Macca's bathroom.

Only cultured dairy, common as much dairy I'm a bit lactose intolerant, but otherwise fine. And it is delicious!!!
