I worked much longer and harder today than I expected to. This is going to be another tough week!
This looks weird but it was quite tasty. I had some left over smoothie from yesterday and I used it to make porridge with this morning. The chunks are banana to sweeten it as it was a bit sharp.
Lunch was reheated lentil and aubergine bake with rice, yogurt and cheese. It reheated really well. Too well actually because I ate most of it before remembering to take a photo! I will definitely be making this again, it really was very good.
After working from 6am until 6pm (yes, I did!) I hastily packed and drove up to Birmingham. I was so tired when I got here because I had worked flat out all day, without even time for a dog walk at lunch time 😦 . I knew I must have been tired. On my way out to dinner I stopped at a cashpoint machine to withdraw £200. I carried on walking and this man called after me – I had only left the cash in the machine!!!! He could easily have taken it as I had definitely walked away and was round the corner. How extraordinarily kind of him. Whoever you are, thank you very much.
Look who I packed in my suitcase!
This Mama has had enough of being without her babies so she brought them with her. We had a superb drive up here and arrived about 2 hours and 40 minutes after leaving home. No traffic at all, it was brilliant. We checked in to the hotel and went out for dinner to Wagamama’s.
I had miso soup (Lara was posion tester), edamame beans,
with a beer,
and white chocolate and ginger cheesecake – oops.
Our desserts were on the house as an apology for not having a dairy free dessert except an ice lolly – happy with that!
We had a stroll along the canals to stretch our legs before retiring for the night
and then headed back to the hotel. Lara and I had sleep on our minds but the little fella had other ideas!
All relaxed now and sleep beckons. It is so much fun having them here with me. I must pack them more often.
I’m glad you were able to bring the kids with you. Well, Lara is far from being a kid. Tell her I like the new lighter look with the hair. Bob noticed it too a couple of days ago.
Your food definitely looked really interesting today. I love the idea of left over smoothie to make porridge.
