I'm trying to be healthy and eat more fruit but it mostly makes me gag, so I blend it into a smoothie and all's well.
Today's lunch was a Power Smoothie with strawberries and yo-gurt (please say yogurt the American way) from a Leon cookbook (my current fave). It's meant to be a breakfast smoothie - it has oats in it - but the husband and I have found ourselves in a happy little routine (for me) where he brings me coffee and toast in bed every morning. I am worried that if I suggest a variation to the menu it might suddenly draw his attention to the fact that he is slavishly delivering my breakfast each day (I think he does it on automatic pilot now, being half-asleep first thing) and that might make him stop. So I struggle on (!) with my toast each morning and have something breakfasty at lunchtime whenever I can.
Favourite choices for my lunch-breakfast include almond granola with coconut Greek-style yogurt, or thick and creamy full-fat French yogurts (they come in proper little glass or ceramic pots... adore them). Such fun, though, whizzing up a load of stuff in the blender and quite therapeutic if you're having a bad day.
My crochet progress can only be described as manic at the moment. I'm still working on my scarf (pattern and moral support provided by the lovely Emily at Unravelled). I have decided to make it as long as I can so that it winds round my neck several times. I've found a second wind - am totally motivated to finish it. I will be doing a 'taa-daaa!' very soon indeed - making it my mission to do the BIG REVEAL at the weekend. Bet you can't wait... (ha!)
I noticed earlier that our favourite bird Cuckoo has given me an award. Am ridiculously pleased - yayer! So I'll pop on over to her pad, pick it up and be back here with my acceptance 'speech' over the weekend when my life has slowed down.
Must dash - I am on my laptop in bed and the husband has just put my silk sleep mask on. I think he's trying to make a point. Not sure that's a good sign for a newly married couple - ha!
