A very nice lady PM’ed me on Loquax to ask if I enjoyed eating on a pound a day.
I thought I would share the answer with you all.
NO! (but I do like it when I’ve bagged a real bargain like the Thorntons Chocolate cake).
It is really stressful, I hate crowds and confict which there is a plenty when you need to get bargains. I long to do a normal shop and miss fresh fruit terribly. I even get trolley envy! I really find it much harder to feed me as a veggie than my OH, as meat products aways seem to get reduced where as the veggie stuff is hardly ever reduced. His diet is much more varied than mine with different curries and meats, mine seems to be pasta, pasta, pasta.
I admit I am now taking a multi vit everyday because I am worried that I am not getting all that I should out of food.
It is not a sob story, but one many people in the UK are going though today. They either pay the rent/mortgage and give up most other things or you loose your place to live. I wish the government would wake up to this! What some MP’s spend on a lunch has to last us well over a month on all our food and bills!
It’s even harder if you have kids (which we don’t). I know people who can’t afford waterbills and have to bath only once a week, we are not on a water meter, but I know people who are and they are in water poverty!.
What country do we live in where you have to restrict the amount of water you drink from the tap each day!
While the fat cats get fatter, the rest of us struggle just to keep body and soul together…So ends my rant. Love to all!
