Auf Wiedersehen, Your Restaurant/Salon/Real Estate Agency in Paradise is Closed.

The past three days have been a blur of constant finger pricking to check the ol' blood sugar, running to the loo courtesy of my new diabetes meds and label reading to check the carbs in everything.

Rather than go away for the long weekend or potter around the house taking care of all those little projects that I've been putting off, rather than canning the lovely figs that are sitting in my kitchen waiting to be put into a delicious compote or spending time taking my children to local museums and attractions, I chose instead to spend the last three days completely absorbed in reality television.

Because, you know nothing takes you away from your mundane reality like Reality TV.
