What a beautiful day! I can see from friend’s FB feeds that there were a lot of parents travelling around the country, depositing their children off at university. I hope they are not too sad. So while all that travelling, new beginnings and different ways of life began, I had a fabulous day.
I am always happy when I walk in to my kitchen first thing and find it filled with sunshine, as I did today.
These fruits and veggies were made for juicing. The apples were fresh picked from the tree and the cucumber was home grown too. Yummy.
Keven came to see me which made me very happy indeed and he brought his friends and travelling companions, Viv and Ian with him.
First stop was Frankie’s in Staplehurst. I had a soy milk latte and resisted the cake until they all gave me a piece of theirs to try – it was very enjoyable.
Second stop was the beautiful Sissinghurst Castle Gardens which I have not visited for years. It was stunning and I will let you wander round in peace and quiet, with no distractions from myself.
Wasn’t that gorgeous? I can’t believe this is in my village and I haven’t visited for about 10 years! Keeping it local we then had a late lunch at the Milkhouse who were very kind about accommodating a late lunch due to a misunderstanding over timings. The spicy bean salad with crispy shallots was a triumph.
The garlic bread, made with olive oil, was a high calorie low nutritional moment of weakness but it tasted lovely.
As did the chocolate I had later at home and then a bowl of porridge with fruit and coconut sugar. I think my resolve goes when I have a drink and I did enjoy 2 lovely glasses of wine with lunch so I may abstain for a while as I really need to shift some weight.
Thank you so much to you all for coming to visit. It was a lovely day and I really enjoyed it. Enjoy the rest of your trip and safe travels home on Tuesday.
