Wow! Monster straws. Though the thought of peanut butter makes me feel quite queasy. That and Nutella; two things I do not eat.

Too thick for a straw! I think it’s fine, doesn’t bother me, but I know some people think it looks vile. It’s a bowl of potato, carrot, leek, onion, garlic, purple spouting broccoli, watercress & spinach, seasoned & with cumin, coriander, garam masala & ginger spices added. Oh & some chicken stock. Gotta be healthy!


Veg box arrived yesterday, so it’s thick, gloopy green soup for lunch again. Looks vile, tastes delicious!

I try not to, but sometimes I can’t help it and I fall asleep in a chair, if I’m at home, not busy, etc.
I prefer not to, as I don’t think that helps the night-time sleeping in the long term.
I wouldn’t mind, but the last couple of nights I’ve woken from some really unpleasant dreams. That’s left me out of sorts all day. I have a cold though, so maybe that’s why. 🤷🏼‍♀

Sigh. Fitbit tells me I’m still averaging 5 1/2 hours of sleep a night. Not enough, it really isn’t. I was hoping that once I’d recovered from the stresses of the last several years I would start to sleep better. Maybe it’s an age thing, but I would rather not spend my remaining years living through the fog of insufficient sleep. ☹

I know! Thoroughly rubbish start to the day. Think I have a cold, hence the muddled head. It’s nearly lunchtime and I’m only just getting going.

Well so far this morning I have managed to wake up early, drink tea, feel nauseous, get out of bed, tip coffee over the worktop, put coffee in the wrong part of the Aeropress, spill that, grind more coffee, spill some of that - and finally make a damn coffee.
Clearly I need coffee in order to be able to make coffee. 🙄

It only grinds beans. I still have to do the rest. I think it’ll grind around 10-12 cups worth of beans. Though I set it to 6 to grind the amount I usually use in two mugs of coffee.

Ahhh, coffee. In the interests of not aggravating my shoulder, this arrived. 40% discount offered by Amazon, so too good to pass up.


How did you manage to lose that?!
