(photo of dinner missing as I swapped phones with my daughter)
It's been a week since I completed my Living Below the Line challenge.
I was at various points, hungry, tired and headachy - but never unbearably so. I grew fed up of eating the same things over and over again and yearned for something tasty to eat. I was acutely conscious of food all around me and my inability to snack on demand. I realised that the value I place on food extends far beyond the need to survive. Most of all I missed the restorative powers of a cup of tea.
Thanks to the generosity of family friends and work mates I have raised £249 for Oxfam - just £1 off my target.
It's been a week since I returned to my normal diet. 1.4 billion people are still living on £1 a day.
If you would like to sponsor me you may still do so here.
Thanks if you do.
