What a tough week and what a rubbish day! I guess I am lucky that I don’t often think this way but tonight I do.
Another week, another hotel room. My favourite hotel was fully booked so I tried the Hampton Hilton in Birmingham instead. Apparently it’s s little bit Hilton and a little bit more relaxed. Well, not up to scratch I am afraid. One of the windows in my room didn’t have a curtain yet we were in a brightly lit area so I struggled to stay asleep. Plus, noise travelled and the hotel was on Broad Street which, as anyone who knows Birmingham knows, is full of Gentlemen’s clubs and nightclubs. i.e. lots of late night noise. A very bad nights sleep indeed. GRRRRRRR.
I liked these in the shower though. When you need glasses, it is hard distinguishing the shampoo from the soap! But these were good.
After 3 hectic days away, I was thrilled to be home and happy about working from home today. BUT, my laptop decided to fail so I had to go to London, late and flustered to get it fixed. I had a quick smoothie first.
The advantage of being in London was Borough Market on a Friday. It was buzzing and vibrant and fun. I had a Heavenly Haloumi burger which was delicious. It was served with humous and spicy salsa and onion chutney in a seeded bun. Very tasty.
I also stopped by this lovely stall for the first time. I bought some Thyme honey with the honeycomb in it. Raw honey is so much nicer than the pasteurised rubbish the Supermarkets sell.
Plus I had a cup of this and it was lovely. Anyone know if these reputed health benefits are true?
I had plans for a homemade dinner but after a day in london I opted for something much simpler.
I had half a can of mixed beans, mixed with a heaped tablespoon of Cream Cheese and 1 level tbsp of the Chipotle sauce which I heated together in a saucepan. I served them with lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber.
I did add some Cheddar after I took the pictures.
This was a simple and tasty dinner. I have eaten really badly lately, with too much booze and way too many cakes, puddings and lattes. I have really struggled and the weight is going on, not off. Things have to change so I was pleased with supper tonight. Tomorrow I MUST do more exercise.
