Lock and key, tasty toasty, corporate rebel

A glimpse inside AAMI Park

A graduate at work today complimented me on the necklace I was wearing, which was a silver keyhole. Then I noticed she was wearing a necklace shaped like a key!

That reminds me, I wore my button brooch yesterday and several people commented on it. 

I made a batch of gluten-free muesli last night with oats, rice flakes, buckwheat puffs, pecans and sesame seeds toasted in brown sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Tis yummy!

I wore my black knit armwarmers in the office today. I quite like subverting the corporate culture in my own small way.

Where did you get gluten free oats? Everywhere I ask store clerks just tell me oats naturally have gluten in them (which I am pretty sure is a fallacy).

Oats do containe gluten but it's a different type of gluten to wheat which is more easily tolerated. I never used to eat oats until I read that 1 in 7 coeliacs can tolerate oats. Since I'm gluten intolerant, not coeliac, I thought I'd probably be able to tolerate them too. And I can. Just make sure you get oats that are free of wheat contamination (eg Carmens).
