3 weeks

3 weeks, 1 day and 6 hours I've been living without sugar, dairy, animal products, coffee.
It's been pretty hard and heaven knows how much honey I've used in my tea's in that time but I've done it. That is up until this morning.
Yesterday some friends of ours came over and gave us this chocolate box:
 Which just happens to be filled with my favourite chocolates in the whole world.
John's eyes light up like a Christmas tree as he has eaten all chocolate in sight, (he claims that is so I won't get tempted), and I knew he would down this box in no time. This is what was left when I opened up the fridge this morning:
So I cracked.
The chocolates tasted absolutely  D I V I N E . I had 4 of them
and are now suffering from withdrawal. 
But it was totally worth it. 
Nom, nom!

"When the moon......




..hits the sky like a mozarella pie, that's amore" 


 The full moon "moonsets" down here are pretty spectacular and I always slumber through it from my bed, through the bamboo blinds. (Yup, the moon is up and shining, zzzzzzz, still up,zzzzzz ah it's morning and the moon has gone).
I always miss it so this morning I figured I wouldn't.
So I followed John down to the beach at the ungodly hour of 04.30 and sat there watching the "moonset"

Not a whole lot of "amore" going on since by now my hubby was already halfway out the reef but it was still nice and beautiful and serene and actually not a bad way to start the day. 

Although I can feel a huge na-na nap coming on later in the day.
