Hello there and happy Wednesday! How’s this week going for you?
Hope you haven’t been hit by too much snow or bad weather, it’s been super blustery here in Bristol – I was almost blown off our outdoor stairs taking the recycling out!
This week is whizzing by super fast, I can’t believe I’m only just getting round to recapping my weekend.
One thing I’ve been trying to do recently is take a breather during my drive home. This gorgeous sunset was in Somerset on Tuesday, it was so nice to get out the car, stretch my legs and relax a little before getting back in for more hours..
Here’s a link to what I was up to in Somerset.. There really are no words sometimes!
Yesterday, I had more than six hours of driving and I broke it up in Salisbury with a visit to their super Waitrose. It really is worth a visit (my wallet is lucky its so far away!).
This weekend was a chilled one but I managed to sneak in some exercise – a huge plus given my lack of movement this week!
We’ve been buying herb plants on sale recently and I love using scissors to cut them onto salad. So far we had basil, chives (they seem the least affected by my savage pruning!) and parsley.
Friday night’s dinner was a plate of all my favourite things! I was so ready for a big plate of goodness as I did a long walk accompanied by podcasts beforehand.
The weather was a bit rubbish for running so I did some Youtube workouts instead, 30 minutes of HIIT later and I was ready for pancakes!
We spent the day doing the usual chores and walking around the city while I tried to work out Vine. I have to use it for work and am still a bit confused as to the point of it..
Joy! A big pile of apple slices and dates to enjoy with the Saturday papers was a lovely way to spend the afternoon before we hit the shops for dinner.
Let’s talk liver. I love the way it makes me feel, I really hate the texture. We tried some local, free range, organic liver as a meat replacement in fajitas.
I have to say it’s the best way I’ve eaten it so far but I couldn’t manage very much. Next time we’re frying it with onions and serving with gravy and mash.
Saturday’s film was The Queen of Versailles, which I really enjoyed, especially when I Googled how things were working out now.
We ran! We ran! It may have been 3.4 miles but I absolutely loved it. Our legs and core were pretty sore from the previous day and I sneakily made us run all the big hills.
My Mum visited straight after the run so we did extra coffee and pancakes, which she was very impressed with. “So easy.. it’s just two eggs, one banana!”
Mum and I spent a great afternoon going round the shops and stopped off for tea and cake at the Arch House Deli. Their gluten free, dairy free chocolate cake was divine.
I was sad when she left but very chuffed with the beautiful flowers she brought from the garden, they’ve been cheering up my week.
Dinner was salmon cooked in the oven with herbs and a slice of lemon, sweet potato chips and avocado.
