    I'm also eating fruit and museli and Yoghurt every few days. I dont mind a bit of sugar. No alcohol , soada pops, chocolate or ice cream is where its at. A bit of sugar from some bread or tomato sauce is fine. It may add up too 20-40gms a day.

    Just get Mick to throw it over the fence. Can you ask him to unplug it first if that's OK?

    and the rest

    muesli = sugar
    fruit = fruit sugar

    yogurt is good for gut bacteria, the good bacteria if you take it daily

    I gave up sugar last year and lost a lot of weight and it does wonders for your fitness levels but its near impossible to give it up entirely, a little bit is OK if you are very active as you will burn it off

    Well that was my instinct as I am contracts driven in life.

    Having said that I was seeking @Suitman ‘s advice as to was is industry standard. I feel more comfortable with a contract.

    I have one guy who wants to start work on a 12 line email. Which makes my red lights flash as his vague quote could end up anything due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

    I just don’t want to be all legal weirdo on tradies if they never normally deal with contracts on a day to day basis.

    protecting yourself is not being a weirdo

    no doubt you are referring to the landscaping contractor as they have unforeseen contingencies underground for which they will try and slug you

    the benefit of a contract is that all the contingencies or potential variations are agreed to prior to the work starting

    we use the same contracts in Qld but they start from $5K, most of my work is just over the border in Qld and I'm a QBCC member and its mandatory for any work over $5K to have a small works contract in place, Suity will know whats mandatory in NSW

    I love chocolate and will have some maybe on weekends .
    I was never a huge sugar intake person. 30-100gm daily. I know some people who would get 200gm just from drinks.
    One mate was drinking 2 x cans of v a day. A powerade and 2-3 glasses of juice. That was about 200-250gm of sugar a day.
    He would have a cup of tea with 3 spoons as well at night.
    On top of that one bar of chocolate a day, and after dinner a bowl of ice cream and a piece of mudcake. We worked out he was having almost 1/2 a kilo daily without counting his 3 main meals.

    Sticking in a range under 50gm a day would be ok imo.And somedays under 20gm.

    Just reading through your post I’m just realising how behind I am in seeing movies over the past year.
    My partner and I had a baby 4 months ago, so I’m not expecting that to change anytime soon either.
