He’s a ferrety ferret. A hider of sweet things. He’s like a crack addict when it comes to lollies, sweet, desserts and candies. He’s a sugar addict pre-rehab. He works hard so the calories burn off him. Mostly. so even though I really, really hate that sugary stuff, I let him be. I’ve taken it out of our food pretty much everywhere else, so I let the man be.

Clearly though. I’ve been too strict.

He’s gone into hiding.

Gone underground with his stash.

Which is all kinds of weird for a grown man in his own house, right?

Sorry babe, it is!

But really, when it comes down to it, it’s my fault, isn’t it. Does anyone remember how badly I reacted in my second week of quitting sugar when he brought home a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts? I lost my head a little but in the end all it did was proved to me that without sugar in my life I just didn’t crave it any more. But it set a precedent. I told him it was absolutely not supportive and crap to bring that stuff into the house. So now, he hides it.


That’s not better at all, is it?

Now he’s a sneaky ferret?

A candy filled, sneaky ferret.

The sneaky bit is his fault. Mostly.

Decide for us Sugers, whose fault is this? Who turned Hubby into a sneaky candy ferret?


  • All the more reason he needs a man cave! HaHa
    I would probably do the same, you can’t rub it in your partners face that “Hey I’m eating these, and you can’t !!”

    • He can have all the man cave he likes, as long as I can get my car in the garage. Haha.
      So it WAS my fault? Hmmm.

    Our fridge is in a cupboard, and I recently found JW unwrapping his Cornetto in there. I think he was partly trying to be supportive of my current wheat-free, meat-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, alcohol-free, caffeine-free detox, but mainly because he was hiding from himself. He, too, was meant to be off dairy! I’m going to check out some of your sugar-free posts! I’m into week 2 and feeling veerrrrry flat today. My journey unfolds over here:

    • I had to have a little giggle at this. The fridge in the cupboard thing wouldn’t work around here, we’d both just end up hanging out in a cupboard all night. Haha.

      Hiding from himself too. I like that. We ALL do that.

    I’m gonna be a pain-in-the-arse fence sitter and say a little from column A and a little from column B 😛 He probably *shouldn’t* be hiding it but I can also see his logic. Strike it down as a lesson learned, no one’s fault just a new understanding.

    • That’s how I felt at the end of the post. I was all oh my goodness I’ve pushed him over the edge at the start, then I was like, hold on there candy ferret! Haha.
