I am really enjoying the new work I am doing and the people are great but I really found it hard getting up and going in to work today. Working from home on a Monday was such a benefit. I hope I can do it again soon.
I made breakfast to take in and it was lovely but no photos. I got the mix perfect today. I weighed and measured so take your pick of cups or grams/mls:
Uncooked Oats with Yogurt and Blueberries
- 1/2 cup or 40 g oats
- 1/2 cup or 110 g Natural yogurt
- 1/2 cup or 110 ml soya milk
- 1/2 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
Mix everything together and leave for 3 – 4 hours for the oats to absorb some milk. It was great and I will have exactly the same again tomorrow, hopefully with a photo this time.
At lunch time I went outside to stretch my legs and walked through an alleyway to investigate what lay yonder. I was so tempted to press this bell! I didn’t though.
This part of London, to the North of the City, is a real mixture of ages and styles of architecture. Through the alleyway was this little park which had a well equipped playground and a seating area for those wanting to eat outside or just sit and relax.
Tucked away in the corner are some raised beds and a little sign designating this as a growing area. What a brilliant idea. I do hope I get to see something growing in it.
I strolled along past the market stalls and decided to join the longest queue which was at this Burrito wagon. They were very efficient and I was soon at the front. Too soon really because I was enjoying chatting to Gini but on the other hand I needed to be back at work.
I went for the vegetarian option and it was FAB-U-LOUS !!!! It had cheese, rice, black beans, coriander, tomato, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream and chilli sauce. It was so good I want to eat it again so I shall be returning.
I know lunch would have been loaded with calories. The white wrap and white rice had little nutritional value but everything else was healthy but calorie dense so I made a smoothie for supper. I started with the same as yesterday: spinach, kale, orange and a banana. I then added another orange and a stick of celery.
This one doesn’t look like pond algae! I preferred the flavour of yesterdays though because the celery was a bit over powering.
All in all, a very satisfactory day.
