Blogs, holidays, guild quiet times and health

Well, I've been busy, but not doing much WOW stuff that I can post about - a lot of guildies are on holiday and stuff is quiet, so today's post is a bit more personal than normal.

I noticed the other day that I should really update my blogroll, so I went to my reader and I have 86 blogs I subscribe to. Eeeek - how the hell do I list all of those? I might have to move my blog now so I can start to arrange it how I want, but after reading how other people have gone about this I'm not sure....

The kids are still on holiday and I'm slowly turning to a grump 24/7. Nine weeks is TOO LONG. They are going to my parents for a week next week and I'm looking forward to the peace and quiet. I will completely and utterly miss them like crazy too. Damn kids - can't live with them, can't live without them.

At least daughter is having fun now - she's playing with her grandfather on her level 37 rogue (he's boosting her in Scarlet Monastery). I'm very proud of my little girl - she's only 7 and has a level 37 rogue which has 34g and she has 94g on her bank alt (I taught her to play the auction house). She's started her own blog (which we have limited the audience on) and is loving it!

On a personal note, I'm in the middle of changing my whole diet. I suffer from Multiple Sclerosis (was diagnosed last year - kind of late in life for MS), which most of the time doesn't bother me at all, but periodically I get numbness in my hands (seriously messes up my playing and typing abilities). I did some reading on the web and found that diet can have a massive effect on symptoms so I did an allergy test and found that I am intolerant to cow's milk, yeast and blackcurrant (where the hell did that one come from!).

So I switched milk to soya, cut out bread, all dairy and all sorts of other stuff. I'm going to write a blog on all that too, so maybe if it all works I can help other people who suffer the same.

So - all in I've not been playing as much because I get frustrated that I can't type and I end up with stiff hands and pain. Last time it was my right hand and I switched to doing everything off key-bindings, but this time it's more my left hand so I keep messing up my movements and misclicking keys.

Yeah, I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. Time to go see if it's the fishing quest to give me a much needed croc pet, and do some web research for dairy free chocolate.

If you like icecream "Swedish Glace" ( is pretty good and its gluten/dairy free. It also comes in rich chocolate flavour and tescos sell it.
