Perhaps it's the tongue-in-cheek cockiness of the way I signed off yesterdays blog, but overnight the cracks are beginning to show. I think it's because I was feeling tired and instead of just going to bed, I wallowed in my tiredness and that is never a good thing. And I ate both of the muffins. 

This morning I remembered that I had some cashew nuts at home, which I thought would be a perfect snack during my day, but when I looked at the back of the packed (after the crisp incident I have learnt how important this is) I saw that they contained soya which I know I am not allowed, as well as rather usefully mentioning they also contained nuts. So at lunch time I went to Tesco to see what gluten-free snacks I could buy myself, armed with my Coeliac food and drink directory book I was looking forward to jazzing up my lunch with some new and exciting treats. My enthusiasm wained instantly with the complete lack of labeling on the back of the packets, and the book although useful doesn't list all of the products, unless they actually aren't gluten free? But surely raisins aren't. Plus as I was having to read the packets so carefully I was being pushed and shoved out of the way by all of the lucky people who were able to quickly 'choose' what they could have. It was then I realised that I had lost my ability to choose what I could eat and was limited by my lack of knowledge and bad food labeling. I came away with a banana, some salt and vinegar snack-a-jacks and some cashew nuts. Dull dull dull.
