Weekend feed

So to finish the week of reporting… I made a smoothie with a banana, the (yucky) unsweetened smooth peanut butter, and… chocolate ice cream. Oh and milk.  Usually the banana is frozen and we don’t have ice cream :s And then I went to a friend’s housewarming. I ate many cups of boozy berries with …

Friday Feast

Sweet potato and smoked salmon

Well if one fasts, one must feast! Friday was a lovely work day – I felt like I (once again) tamed my desk and further thinned the large cabinet of inherited paperwork.  I felt very virtuous when i got home, and then headed out with teh BF to meet my parents for comedy (which was …

Thursday fast

Dessert yesterday

Last night’s meals ended with above, in expectation of fast day Thursday. I held off til noon to eat. Today’s light lunch was a small 100g can of tuna and 250g punnet of strawberries. Nice, but the strawberries weren’t as ripe and yummy as the last batch. I then had a hot choc (47 cals) …

The BF's go to bulk meal

So today, much like yesterday.  Started with oats and blueberries (thought about adding some banana for your sakes, but meh). Stopped by near my old office for a take away mocha.  The taste wasn’t as I remembered, but the barista was different.  It was still lovely to ‘catch up’ with people who remember me but …

Tuesday Tucker

Mocha to go

tucker: Aussie slang for food! I started my day with oats with blueberries – frozen blueberries go in with the oats and water, and defrost in their 2min cycle.  I also almost always have a glass or two of water. On non fast days, it’s almost the next thing that gets me out of bed: …

Somehow, I stumbled across a Cup of Jo series on motherhood around the world.  Fascinating (except for Australia, naturally).   It’s title is # of surprisingly things about motherhood in… Here’s what I’d like… – 3 hours every day with a kraamzorg for the first eight days after birth in The Netherlands.  How helpful would …

Cold, snow cold…

Thanks to Sally Reddy's photography

Last Friday I felt the niggles of a sore throat, so wisely spent Saturday sleeping.  And a lot of Sunday.  I worked Monday and Tuesday, whilst the man about the house took an unprecedented two days off in a row.  Unlike me, he actually is awake, and upright on his sick days.  My Wednesday, Thursday …

"Practical" heels
