Sometimes people other than me take photos, and then I get candid photos of me, which I always like much much more than photos where I’m looking at the camera and/or posing.
I rarely get to see my profile :P I used to hate it, but IDK, kinda like it in these.
This is last weekend I think? Pancakes are usually a weekend thing. Lloyd took these.
I am leaving all the extra, more butt focussed pictures off the internet.
It was sunny yesterday, so I went for a long walk with Lloyd.
The first picture is part of the route I go running on, but a new part opened recently. I didn’t know it was there until we got to the end of the path and it wasn’t blocked off anymore. It’s a cycle trail through an old railway tunnel (there’s two - one is 400m, the other is 1600m) which is pretty cool.
The middle picture kind of shows what it’s like in the tunnel - it was a strange experience! The whole thing is lit but it definitely feels like being underground, in a cave or something.
So that was my slightly unplanned adventure this weekend :)
Ok, I’m getting it together. I didn’t have the best night’s sleep, but I’m on my second glass of water today and this is my breakfast. Baked oats with cranberries and nuts and seeds. Plus dark chocolate, and my vitamin tablet :)
I also remembered to take the bins/recycling out last night. Which isn’t really related, other than that you could file this under “look I am being an adult yay me”.
Baking pizza with the boy for dinner :)
We had pancakes and coffee for breakfast, pasta for lunch, and I baked cupcakes today as well. Basically I’m having a really good food day.
Hiking pictures from this weekend :)
It was so weird walking through the snow in a t shirt! It’s still below freezing in the shade (it last snowed over a week ago, and it still hasn’t melted) but the sun was warm, and it’s mostly uphill.
Baking bread, because I am a domestic goddess ;)
There’s a load of seeds and stuff in there. A couple have garlic and herbs. A couple have olives (those are for Lloyd).
I did leave some plain, but experimenting is fun.
Finally got around to planting the windowsill herbs! We improvised with old almond milk cartons as trays, but it’s actually worked quite well.
Also, I was labelling them and I wrote ‘Basil Fawlty’ and ‘Basil Brush’ to differentiate the two basils. Then we had fun thinking of (terrible) names for the rest. We ran out of inspiration though, so our Parsley plants are called ‘Elvis Parsley’, ‘Parsleymouth’ and ‘Dave’.
- This mug only cost £1.50, but it is my favourite and I think coffee tastes so much better from it.
- Possibly because it’s called a ‘hug mug’ and keeps your hands warm too.
- But possibly because it holds more coffee than a normal mug does.
- I bought this sweatervest 3 years ago and had never worn it until a week ago. I have worn it 3 times since then.
Warm enough to eat outdoors! (Although don’t let Lloyd’s t-shirt confuse you, he doesn’t feel cold like normal people do. I was wearing a sweater still.)
I’m so so ready for spring now.
Trip pictures, part two.
Yep, sunsets! I even got a picture of the dog
posing staring thoughtfully out at the sea.
