The Holly and the Ivy in one spot together on the riverbank ... every bloody day when I pass it it gets the song in my head and I fight to shake it off for ages. Very festive but very annoying ... although in a good way I guess. 😄
Fuelling me at the moment are simple meals made from simple ingredients.
I made a gorgeous Potato, Quinoa and Chickpea coconutty curry for my tea yesterday but while I let the flavours develop more on that, there was a baked potato and homemade coleslaw for my lunch I feel better for eating more nutritious food, but it's a vicious cycle isn't it, when you most need it you feel the least like making it. I had to force myself out of a fug of eating all the packets and ready made things in the cupboards and actually get out some ingredients before they all went off.
A woman can not live off vegan sausage rolls and crisps for too long!!
Cheering me each day have been my Advent Calendars ... I know I'm just a great big kid 😁
But searching for the date, opening the little door and revealing a Christmassy image in one, a jar of jam or marmalade in the other and a little animated clip or cartoon in the Jacqui Lawson online one is making my day. Finding the little Gonks is also proving fun and having them ding, dong and dance on the shelves of the Christmas holiday cottage makes me laugh, you won't know what on earth I'm on about if you haven't got this years calendar, I've not lost my marbles completely ... honestly!!
