I did an oopsey

Sounds like you really are doing well @Jacinta (Australian) It still surprises me that my trips to the supermarket don't cause me any upset/cravings anymore and I can walk past the bakery aisle or sweets aisle and not be tempted to buy that stuff anymore. I get really upset though if they don't have my favourite cheese or Greek yoghurt or olive selection or peppadew peppers stuffed with feta or double cream as has happened recently. Lidl need to pull their socks up as I am not happy having to visit 2 supermarkets to get what I need.
Thankyou Rebrascora :)
Your doing any amazing job also, even the smell doesn’t seem to bother me either especially when you know they made fresh bakery bread. Oh if they don’t have my favourite yoghurt or cheese I kindly go to the closet supermarket and find it . I try not to go to many places though if 1 or 2 of the supermarkets don’t have it .
Lidl defianetly needs to pull up there socks and add more stock into the one supermarket so we don’t have to drive all over the country side.

You all seem to be doing super well compared with me....I tried yougurt once and nearly gagged on it. The trouble is I was brought up in the 1950's post war when rationing was just being eased. Bread and dripping with lashings of salt, tooth decay invoking sweets and everything laden with sugar and salt. Unfortunately that set my taste buds for the next 60 years and only my heart attack in 2012 made me take a long hard look at my eating habits. I have gradually toned down the salt and have gone from 3 teaspoons of refined sugar in my tea to none. I still can't drink coffee without it, so I put 1/2 teaspoon of honey in. I still love my beer, but now limit it to 2 pints a week (of proper English cellar temp. ale). I have switched from 2 glasses of red wine to a single of rose. with my dinner.

I'm a sucker for fillet steak, but it isn't the same with a poxy salad instead of a plate of fatty chips and mature cheddar cheesy sauce. The lovely Jane is trying to get me to enjoy (not the word I would choose) something called broccolini, something else called artichokes (eggplant to you Aussies) and asparagus, (I quite like the last one).
The only vegetables we had growing up were cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and peas, runner and broad beans in season with lashings of salty gravy to take the taste of boiled to death veggies.
