A little secret

Time to fess up, the last few weeks my interest in food has been suffering. I have spent weeks alternating between porridge,  beans on toast and beans on a Jacket Potatoes.  It’s hasn’t been an economy drive , the result of the cold weather trapping me in the house, or some faddy diet. It just that anything with a stronger taste  has been turning my stomach.

All pretty odd for a girl who has spent her entire adult life with the first and last thought of the day being “What can I eat next?”, and who would rather buy food than clothes except maybe that  Lady Gaga Meat Dress – always thought that looked spot on for some slow braising.

Despite these alarming symptoms I am not panicking because I am assured all this perfect normal for someone in my condition. My condition,  I am happily pregnant and until recently rather unhappily suffering the accompanying Morning Sickness

Now this is my first pregancy and I rapidly discovered that Morning Sickness was the biggest misnomer since “Happy Meal”.  The sickness  actually lasts all day, like travel sickness or a permanent hangover which is doubly unfair because of course I have given up drinking.  No big deal not drinking , who wants to drink anyway when a newly heightened  sense of smell makes all alcohol smell like old mans shoes.

With the start of the second trimester my morning sickness is beginning to pass, and I am getting excited about food again just in time for Christmas, so normal service will resume
