I started today with a delicious roll. The bread was so dark and full of seeds and I had it filled with ham. With a skinny latte on the side.
I have had a challenging week at work. It has been the week to deliver what I have been working on for 4 weeks so it has been stressful and busy and demanding. It seemed to go well and today I could begin to relax a little which was much needed. I went out for an early lunch today and it was sunny again. Market Day :-).
The market was buzzing and I really enjoyed it. It was full and noisy and vibrant. Yet again I thought how lucky I am to work next to such a wonderful place. Look where I ended up again!
Well, it has been couple of weeks.
I sat and ate outside next to the Cathedral, breathing slowly and deeply and feeling very happy.
I didn’t NEED 2 of these cookies but I had them anyway – they were great.
I also gave in to temptation and bought 4 of these massive meringues; 2 raspberry and 2 plain. We will enjoy those this weekend.
Back to Turnips. Harvey loves figs with yogurt and a drizzle of runny honey so I bought some figs for him.
And some mango. Aplhonso mangoes are here :-). They are much smaller than others and very intensely flavoured. Hideously expensive too but what a lovely treat.
I left work at 5:30 pm on the dot and tried a different route home. I walked across Southwark Bridge and took in the views and felt the warm sun on my face and felt excited for the weekend. I got on the train at Cannon Street which meant I got a seat – hooray. I too often have to stand until Sevenoaks when I get on at London Bridge so by taking a lovely walk which was 5 minutes longer then the normal route, I got on at the start of the line and had a seat. Result.
I over-ate today so apart from a glass of wine, I had a super healthy supper. This was one of the best smoothies I have ever made. I love looking in the fridge, fruit bowl and garden and choosing what to blitz up. I think about how the produce is bursting with goodness and by having it in a smoothie, my body can so easily absorb and digest it all.
- 2 Swiss Chard leaves
- 1 Bulls Blood beetroot leaf
- 2 Medjool dates
- 1 frozen banana
- 6 large strawberries
- 1 tbsp golden linseed
- 1/2 carton cottage cheese with pineapple
- Almond milk
- 1/2 an avocado
- Ice cubes
It was perfect. Thick and smooth and creamy. It had the consistency, texture and coldness of an almost melted ice cream. Perfect. I know I just said perfect twice, but it really was. Perfect, perfect, perfect :-).
Have a great weekend.
