I crawled out of a very comfortable and warm bed this morning, reluctantly. I was tired and wanted to stay but I had a big day ahead of me. I left my dear friend’s house just after 7 am. Morning horses 🙂
Round the corner, this beautiful view of the Leicestershire countryside in an early morning mist wowed me.
And this. How beautiful!
An hour later and I was parking at the Birmingham office. I popped in to EAT and bought a ham and egg sandwich and a skinny latte.
I went back at lunch time for a soup.
Thai spicy butternut which was ok. No bread or accompaniments.
It was a long drive home after an intense and tiring day. It took 3 hours and for most of that I was battling with myself because I wanted to go and buy chocolate in a service station, but I stayed in the car and just kept going and got home shortly after 9pm, 14 hours after I left for work in the morning.
The boiler is broken AGAIN so no hot water or heating AGAIN! GRRRRRR!
I promised myself a smoothie and it was worth waiting for.
Spinach, banana, apple, 2 dates, 1/2 a tub of cottage cheese with pineapple with almond milk and ice cubes. It was wonderful – refreshing and creamy and very smooth.
Followed by some Gruyere and oatcakes. So that was my day in Birmingham, briefly.
