Today was a bleurgh day. I felt really tired all day and struggled to stay off the sugar. I did it but it was tough and instead of sugar I had too much bread. So I still feel bleurgh. But on the upside I saw a beautiful sunrise, found somewhere new to wander round at lunch time and one of my favourite colleagues is back after a break.
I made this the night before so it was ready to pop in to my work bag; oats, natural yogurt, some blueberries, Tahini and almonds. Not much of anything but a really tasty combination.
Sunrise this morning was delicate pinks and blues framed by a very dramatic black cloud. It became very red and orange but I was on the train by then so couldn’t photograph its beauty but it was stunning. At lunchtime my namesake colleague took me to the base of the OXO Tower where there are lots of really cute shops. Plus gorgeous views of London. Behind the OXO Tower is also beautiful in a very different way. Look at this garden. It has a little stream in it. And it is made inside a container. That is what you call container gardening! We went to EAT and I chose in a rush. A Marmite and cheese toasted on sandwich which was on white bread which I don’t like much plus it has very little to commend it. Plus an EAT salad which had honey in the dressing so I couldn’t eat it which made the salad dry. Also, it had dried Cranberries in it so it was a fiddle picking them out. So that was disappointing. This view wasn’t though 🙂
In the afternoon I had a bag of Bombay Mix and for supper I had wine with bread and cheese, bread and Vegemite and another slice with ham on it.
So I still feel bleurgh but an early night and very healthy food tomorrow should sort me out.
I love the photos you’ve shared. It is always wonderful to see another place through the eyes of someone who lives there. It’s much different than the usual touristy type of photos that I often see. Good luck with your sugar detox. I am going through a stage where I am constantly famished but I’m still eating. Go figure.
