If there’s one thing you can say about international airports is that they’re not good for the ‘no sugar’ thing.
They’re full of duty free chocolate shops… or maybe its just me that sees chocolate everywhere…
I have to confess, I haven’t been 100% good. Yesterday I woke up feeling fluey and spent almost the entire day in bed. As a result of feeling sick and needing to nip it in the bud I’ve had more sugar than I’d like – in my throat lozenges, in the hot toddie’s I got Wayne to make me (honey, not sugar) and in the vitamin C gummies I’ve been chewing on since Wayne came down with the flu a week ago. (Thanks Wayne!)
Thank goodness it seems my flu shot paid off – I am better!
So, although I haven’t been GREAT, I’ve still been GOOD.
For instance I haven’t had a single sweet or chocolate. I didn’t touch my airplane dessert lamington and haven’t had sugar in my coffee or tea.
Ok, so I had one iced coffee… no cream but with a dash of caramel… I’m only human!
I think I’ll allow myself that small indulgence given all the other temptations I’ve let go by.
Other than that, the trip has been good so far. The first hop from Hobart to Melbourne was lovely and brief. The jump from there to Singapore not so much… three and a half movies later we had an an hour and a half to kill in Singapore walking up and down the gate lounge to get circulation back in my legs.
I can’t sleep on planes… times like this I wish I was a five year old again, able to curl up in the tiniest space… sigh.
Almost five hours in Dubai and honestly, there really isn’t that much duty free shopping one can do. Two coffees, two lovely chats with women from other parts of the world, and we’ll soon be boarding for the last leg to Athens.
By now I just want to BE somewhere. No longer on the go. This is such a long trip…
