World cup 2018


Qualification matches. Nothing to complain about regarding last night’s game against Holland. A long way to go still.

I am also not 100% sure that the world cup will take place in Russia as planned. So much tension everywhere right now.

Figues (in French)

My little fig tree has been producing quite a few small and sweet fruits. They rippen in a matter of hours and I am glad none of the birds have caught on yet. There is nothing better than a fresh fig.

Figues de Barbarie

I love those as well. A completely different origin since they originate from the cactus family (originally from Mexico and introduced in Southern Europe by the Spanish).

Anyway they were some to be had at the fruit and veg market this morning. Had one at lunch time. Delicious. They are apparently available between August and October. I feel like a special diet coming on. All in moderation of course.


I came across a blog from a fellow Diabetes Type II sufferer who appears to appreciate figs as well.

Weight loss

Ten days ago I started a fairly strict diet to get rid of the effects from recent visitors and before the next lot arrives.

This involves very very low carbs (I need to for my diabetes anyway) and absolutely no alcohol (despite the fact that whisky – my favorite tipple- has no carbs)

Have I lost any weight? The answer is a

big NO. Not worth the effort really.

General info on drinks:

The numbers represent grams of carbs per drink, e.g. what you’ll get if you order one in a bar.

When it comes to drinks it’s pretty straightforward. Pure spirits like whiskey, brandy, cognac, vodka, tequila contain zero carbs and they are all fine on low carb.
