plodding along.

Just a small update from me. As I had more time this morning, I had a more substantial breakfast:

Porridge with strawberries and blueberries, with apple juice on the side.

Yum! When I have longer to eat breakfast, I do enjoy porridge. Now, if I could only persuade myself to get up 15 minutes earlier on work days, I'd be sorted....

I was also a nice fiancee and made some homemade bread this morning to go with our lunch, as my H2B loves it :) 

Nothing else to say, I'm having a lazy afternoon today as I'm not feeling that great. Plodding along :)

summer fruits.

There are some days, where the weather outside is pretty gloomy, but I still like to look forward to summer :) 

Cue: strawberries and blueberries!

And, even better when there's a meringue nestled in amongst them! 
I also made these this evening....

4 blueberry muffins and 4 chocolate chip :)

homemade pizza :)

So, I made homemade pizza for the first time on Sunday night. Apart from the shape, I think it went pretty well! 

Feta cheese, shallots, olives, pepper and mozzarella cheese - yum! =D

a little bit of radley.

So, I ordered these last week in the sale, and they arrived today!! :) 

They came in a pretty box (which had some marks, but never mind). 

Even the tissue paper inside is pretty! 

Shoes!! :) 

I never realised before how horrible my feet look....

With patent heels - so pretty! 

The best part? They were originally £85, but I got them for £29. A very nice treat, and something lovely to come home to :)

give it all away.

The days get busier, yet I love the fact that the evenings last longer, the sun stays out for longer and it finally feels like it's warm. 

Just a few pictures to sum up today.

I find it really hard to eat breakfast - more often than not, I just have a cup of black coffee and head out of the door. As I made myself have breakfast this morning, I took a picture to document the event :) Just a small bowl of shreddies, with orange and lime juice on the side.

This evening, I made tea loaf for the first time.

It turned out pretty well, I think! Just to make sure, I had to have a sample slice.

There is no fat in the cake itself, so it always needs a bit of butter on, like a slice of a bread loaf - it just makes it better! The butter is melting, as I couldn't wait for it to cool down before trying it.

Job done.

lazy days.

Sorry for not updating, life has been very up and down lately. 

Now, the best thing about Sunday? The breakfast! 

Poached egg on one slice of toast, with bacon.

Now, I must admit, I almost never eat breakfast. Only ever on a Sunday. I have good intentions; we have a variety of cereal in the house, but I normally just grab a glass of orange juice and/or a cup of black coffee and shoot out the door.

Maybe I should challenge myself to eat breakfast every day.... hmm..
