not so smarties

Saturday, July 06, 2013

Things have been a little topsy turvy the last few weeks. I've been very unwell and my last pet cat of 20 years was euthanased. 'Last' as in I have had pets all my life until now, and I have agreed to be pet less or pet free, however you want to say it. Interestingly, I wasn't asked for how long ... But I have some travelling ahead of me within the next 18 months, as I want to conduct my research project either interstate or overseas to complete my Master's degree.

My partner is very supportive of my healthy lifestyle efforts, but got each of us a small box of Smarties as a pick-me-up. It was in response to one of those times that we were both feeling sad about the absence of Shelby puss.

The small box is 50g. Looking at the nutrition panel and treatwise information I read that I had eaten two and half 'serves'. That is, in the box, there are two and half serves, a serve being 20g. Who eats 20g of smarties one day, 20g another day, and then 10g another day? I wish I had counted the number of smarties. Probably could have using the non-smart way as it would have only taken two hands, or less than 10 fingers!

    Grief takes many forms and if a box of smarties was a comfort food, so be it.
    I don't think one box would be a disaster.
    I am guessing that, if you were to do your research interstate, a kitten or a rescue cat would travel quite comfortably in a cat carrier.
    There are ways around it, if you felt the need to give a another puss a good home. emoticon . Hugs Susie. emoticon

    I'm sorry that you've been feeling unwell...and that you had to have your cat put to sleep.
