Apparently I am one – a criminal. And I’m mad, sad and..er..bad(?) about it. I’ll get onto why later
Monday dessert! = Incredible!!
- 1 super ripe pear
- 1 peach
- 170g silken tofu
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp agave
Blend and chill for the afternoon whilst you go and do other fun things. The result:
The BEST pudding ever! LOVED IT. 😀 (BTW – That bowl is kinda funnel shaped – it’s not that wide all the way to the bottom!! Otherwise that would be one HUGH JASS pudding!)
It was an exercise day off today (Boooooo…) so instead of a run, I did Poppy’s hour walk 🙂 I was out of the door by 8am with the dog in tow and off we went, with only a book and an apple for company…twas good.
Breakfast – an extremely thick EGM:
Heck knows why it came out so thick today, but I LOVED it!! The thicker the better IMHO.
Post breakfast, the only stuff I really had time to do was hug Chika for five minutes, do 10mins of abs work, pretty myself up (or at least attempt to look appropriate for public viewing) and make lunch, before I had to head off to work. Lunch today was pretty cool though – tres healthy! And rather white too – apparently I love my white veggies!!?? Anyway, I haaaad:
- Green lentils
- a vegan sausage
- parsnip (only a little bit, I’m saving my parsnips :p)
- lots of mixed spice
Oooh it was sooo good – celeriac and parsnip are a freaking match made in heaven! It was FABULOUS.
And I sure needed some fabulousness today. Let me explain/rant/be rather angry and sad…..
So, where I work, I have to park in the public car park. 2-4hours of parking costs £1.80, 4hrs+ costs £5. So for me, it works out cheaper to pay £1.80, then top up towards the end with an extra 1/2 hour (40p). Sooooo today, I dug around in my purse (I specifically remember finding a pound, finding a 50p etc etc) and put in £1.80, stuck my ticket in the car and ran off. Apparently while I was gone however, I donned a black mask and a stripy black and white top and threw a sack with a $ sign over my back, cos when I came back to add the last half hour on, I HAD A FINE. Not just any fine, only a freaking £40 fine!!! SHEESH! I checked my ticket and it said the expiry time was 2.32 (not 4.32, which I thought it should be). Turns out, I put in the ticket machine £1.70, not £1.80, which meant I paid for only two hours, hence the fine!! So in that split second, I suddenly became a naughty nasty cheating criminal :O :O I actually almost burst into tears on the spot 😥 GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. X 1billion 😦
To cheer myself up, I did what any self respecting criminal would do – I did some thieving buying:
The Sun, Heat and 2 books from my work (charity shop books = 95p each, plus 25% staff discount = very cheap books!)
Strawberries (100% free!), Diet Lemonade (isn’t that what criminals drink nowadays? Bah, sometimes you just need bubbles :/) and sushi nori (dried sea vegetable):
And a delayed mystery purchase….
The return of Princess Freya the Third, PhD, should help you guess!! Yes, I did some SUPER CHEAP Amazon buying t’other day, and bought two FABBY vegan books!!
That would be VEGANOMICON folks! AT LAST! Sense the excitement!!?? I was cheered up considerably 🙂 (BTW – I just realised the book on the left says ‘to jump-start weight loss’; don’t worry, that’s NOT why I bought it! I just read a good review of it on a blog :))
After all that crazy excitement, I had to attempt to cook dinner for myself in my dirty prison cell kitchen. With the 5sq feet space I had, I made a seitan/durum wheat/kabocha/parsnip/aubergine/soy sauce/mixed spice/cocoa powder stir fry, with some of that sushi nori stuff sprinkled on:
Simple but freaking fabulous 🙂
I’m probably going to have some cereal later..I want to mildly carb load, seeing as I have a 9miler planned tomorrow and I must be FRESH, FIT AND FABULOUS! Sooo I shall go back into hiding (I don’t want those pesky police to catch me just yet) and see y’all tomorrow 🙂 Have a lovely evening!
QUESTION: Have you ever had a fine? Or felt like you’ve been wrongly accused of something you never did?
PS – Cheryl Cole has malaria?? How mad is that!? I hope my sister doesn’t come back with it, since she’s in Uganda atm…if she does, I’ll have to set the hose on her and send her on her way :s
PPS – I WORKED THE TILL FOR THE FIRST TIME TODAY! That was the thing I was really dreading doing :s I had horrible images of huge cues of people spitting knives at me while I got confused, got my tie caught in the machine (if I owned one), gave the wrong change, fainted from fear etc etc…but thankfully, it went smoothly! Mrs Till only bleeted at me once, thank goodness. Now I can rob shops, with my new till-knowledge – a step up from cheating car park ticket machines, dontcha think!? 😛
