Time, I think, for a change of gear.
We went to Harlow Carr on Tuesday, the Yorkshire coast on Wednesday and Lincolnshire today. On Thursday I went to see my Dad. I’ve eaten scones, sandwiches and afternoon tea, plus a vegan sausage roll. I’ve ticked off another pier and another non-pier. And I have been to three garden centres
As I sit here typing I’m trying to digest two slices of Mrs Botham’s excellent Date & Walnut Spelt Cake. I would have been happy with one slice but Julia likes to ensure I’m well fed. I looked in the mirror last night and can confirm that she is succeeding in her endeavour.
Devon Style – Cream first, then jam on top. Cornish Style – Jam first, then cream on top.
A few days without cake, some exercise and a meal or two consisting of vegetable soup may be in order.
Tonight’s healthy tea was veggie burgers (pumpkin, spinach and quinoa from Tesco’s freezer) with potatoes and organic baked beans.
I thought I’d try something healthy but the beans cost more and had less flavour than the normal budget beans. Back to budget beans, I think.
I did the shopping in Corby last night, on my way back from Peterborough. If you know about Corby you won’t be surprised to learn I bought tinned haggis in addition to veggie burgers and organic beans. Actually you might be surprised – I was. Until last night I didn’t even know it existed.
Sorry for the repeat photos – I wanted to go further back but WP is stopping me.
