I’ve been a wee bit absent haven’t I? Its not because I don’t love you all, or (gasp!) fallen out of love with tea, I’ve just been having so many issues with my medical condition. I’ve not been symptomatic for almost 4 weeks and I’m still only just getting back on track. Its been a major pain. Literally – I’ve had more pain medication than is medically recommended, but my doctors have said its better than me being in agony for weeks on end. I won’t bore you all here, but I’ve started writing about it on a proper normal style blog instead of just clogging up this tea blog, so have a read/follow/comment/ignore me at your leisure: http://mymissingfactor.wordpress.com/.
And, in other fun news, I think I mentioned previously I was doing a 60 Day Challenge at my local barre studio – I won the runner up prize! So exciting! I get to go shopping for more tights and other clothes for barre! Weehee! I totally think it was the overconsumption of iced rooibos that gave me the edge.
And to counter my good news, our blender became a casualty in our soup making process last night. I am now sad because medical bills mean I don’t have the spare cash to fork out for my beloved Blentec until tax return time. :(
Anywho, on to Elf Help! My lovely other half has a week off work this week (becuase he doesn’t have an inherited medical condition which has recently seen him drain all of his leave reserves to a blip. No, I’m not bitter about that at all!), so he packed my timolino with this while I was dressing this morning. Oh my he made it well! Perfect selection of green tea, orange and cranberries to give it s lovely zing. I really like this, I might have to order more. And its warming me up on this chilly day.
