I seem to be spending so much time out socialising, running errands and travelling at the moment that I am really missing being at home. I don’t want to keep being out and away. I want to be at home.
Today was another very early start; I was on the first train out of my local station to get to Birmingham. I bought breakfast in EAT in Brindley Place, Birmingham. This passionfruit and mango bircher muesli was really tasty. I will have that again. It was my colleague Mitchell’s birthday today so we went out for lunch. We sat at a window seat beside the canal in Pitcher & Piano. This was the BBQ burger and chips. The picture is slightly misleading as it makes the burger look small and the chips massive. The reality is that they were both massive! Very tasty burger though, I did enjoy it. Happy Birthday Mitchell 🙂 I wished I could have stayed out here, in Brindley Place. Sitting on a bean bag, watching the tennis. No such option for me though so it was back to work. I was back just before 8pm. The apple tree is even more smothered in this heavenly scented rose. I would know I was home even if I was blindfolded by the scent. I breathed in deeply and was happy to be home. I enjoy a potter in the garden when I get home. This bed could have been laid to celebrate Wimbledon as it is the Wimbledon colours. Go Murray! Some more strawberries are ripe 🙂 I picked some spinach. So there was the basis for supper. I ate the strawberries as they were because it is a waste to blitz something this delicious in a blender. I was still full from the lunch I had eaten 7 hours earlier so I went for optimum nutrition instead. To my spinach I added 2 apricots, a frozen banana and 1/2 a tsp each of Matcha, Kelp and Spirulina. Lots of green goodness and something orange for sweetness and additional nutrients. All placed in the blender and blitzed until smooth with no liquid added. It had my favoured soft ice-cream like consistency. I liked the coldness and the smoothness of it.
I could have eaten more but this was sufficient. I wlil have some nuts and seeds to nibble while I watch some TV.
I was so tired I cancelled my planned evening out, even though I wanted to see my friends. I needed to be at home.
Sometimes you just have to listen to the body and say no to the friends. There will be other opportunities, but today is a “home sweet home” evening.
I’m happy to think of you having a lovely relaxed night at home…your friends will certainly understand. You’re a v busy lady. xxx
I am not sure about “relaxing”. I watched ‘Luther’ with James and Lara and now we are too scared to go to bed!!!!!
