Moonlight Run


So there we were, one of us night blind and one of us with cracked ribs, just running in the moonlight!

The Old Goat has had yet another run in with a grumpy cow (I swear it wasn’t me.) ┬áIt flattened him against some agricultural structure and showed him who was boss. He insists on running but I’m sure there is a cracked rib or two in there. Obviously he won’t go to the doc – why should he? He has his own medical (and vetinerary) degree. And he has the cheek to get cross with me when I consult the esteemed Dr Google!

What with the stumbling in the dark and the injuries, it was a pretty awesome run – fast for me!


Fruits of the Old Goats Labour

My Old Goat is rough and tough. He throws himself off motorbikes, wrestles with mad cows and no matter how far I make him run, he never complains of pain. But when he wants to engage with his feminine side he grows roses. Absolutely stunning roses.

A couple of evenings ago he tried to make me come and inspect said roses in the freezing cold with my pj’s and socks on. I think he was disappointed that I didn’t seem keen so this morning I took my camera for an inspection. They really are gorgeous.

If this is Autumn, bring it on …

What a fabulous day for a fast 7 kay run in town followed by a mad dash to Cedarville to catch up with our Comrades runners, then cycling 21 km with them, playing water-boy. I now feel that if I could just learn to swim I could enter a triathlon. I just love those tri-suits. Maybe a black one with red racing stripes on.

No Flour Keto Pizza

While Fathead Pastry – find it at – makes an amazing pizza base and is known as the Holy Grail of low carb pizza, I think I have found a Holier Grail. Enter Keto Pizza with no flour at all! It’s too, too easy but you still need the baking paper.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and cut your baking paper to fit the pan you will use – one rectangular pizza doesn’t look traditional but is so much easier.

For the crust:

Beat 4 eggs and blend in 180 grams of cheese, mozzarella is best but I used white cheddar. Spread the mixture on to the baking paper on the pan. Bake at 15 minutes – the pizza crust should be golden. Take it out to cool for a few minutes while you prepare the toppings.

For the topping:

Increase oven temp to 225 degrees.

4 Tablespoons tomato paste

1 teaspoon dried oregano

120 grams grated cheese

sliced salami/pepperoni


Layer on top in that order and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes – you’ll know when it’s ready!
