Almost Humpday guys, almost…..

But first! Thank you to everyone who read and commented on my post on Caitlin’s blog yesterday – your comments all meant so much! I was, and still am, very touched.

Ok, now onto the sheer joy that always comes with a Tuesday!

Actually…how about a bit of Monday first, in the form of dessert?

That brownie thing – I’d been really looking forward to it, and it was lovely, but oh-so-tiny! I had it in little nibble bites to make it last longer cos it was seriously small. I hate it when packaging is deceiving like that; you expect something to be one size and it’s something else entirely. HURRUMPH.

Ok, I really will talk about Tuesday now 🙂 6am start, 2 x wheatgerm at home, then an apple at uni:

And a nectarine with 1 cup of cereal:

And a most delicious smoothie – 1 cup milk, a banana, a big glob of peanut butter, a tiny tiny bit of spinach and a small spoon of pea protein powder (I need staying power to get me through an exam:p):

Gosh darn, good smoothie.

Post breakfast, I had a nasty evil toughie exam; except it wasn’t too bad! It went better than I thought which was a relief, and there were only a few questions where, even with my bright shiny thinking cap on, I didn’t know the answer too. All in all, I came out feeling pleased. Plus, I have JUST ONE MORE LEFT!!!! At 4pm tomorrow afternoon, I will be FREEEEE!!! Can you sense the excitement!!?? I plan on an ER/Gossip Girl/Green Wing marathon when I’m done….


When I got home, I had another nectarine:

And then did some DVD action. Afterwards, I decided to take Poppy out. I was prapper hungry though, but Poppy was dying to go – so I had my dessert first:

Dessert first – I think ALL meals should have dessert first. As the girl said in ‘Remember Me’ – what if you die the next minute, and you hadn’t had dessert?? It’d be disappointing, to say the least.

Real lunch was pretty awesome too actually. I picked up some lovely bread on my way home today, so I had 2 slices of that. One half had mashed parsnip (with seasoning), as well as roasted and very finely chopped fennel (my mum did it the other night; I’m a fennel HATER, but how she did it was so awesome!! It didn’t even taste like fennel, it tasted brilliant!). The other half had a mushroom/sauce combo – for the sauce, I cooked 1/2 cup milk, with paprika, 1.5tbsp Noosh, tumeric and garlic:

As well as 1.5tsp cornflour to thicken it up. When it was thickening, I added in the mushrooms I’d just stir fried. Alongside both of those beasties, I had some fresh edamame beans (Have I spelt that wrong!? I can never spell that word…..:p):

Ah it was so good!! The mushroom sauce thing was DELIGHTFUL, and obviously I don’t even need to state my opinion on the parsnips…it was just really, really good 😀

Afternoon snackage was an apple and a piece of the lovely bread toasted, and topped with yogurt and cereal:

AMAZING combination!!

I was a tad dull when it came to dinner – I had lots of ideas whizzing round in my head which were imaginative, but I’ve been cramming revision all arvo, so I just didn’t have time to cook anything amazing 😦 Alas, kamut spaghetti, with a homemade tomato, cocoa, thyme and cinnamon sauce, roasted veggies, and roasted beans, was the result of my hurried efforts!

It may not have been creative, but by gosh was it good. Though I can’t even describe how excited I am about actually doing some proper cooking in a few days – so many recipes, so much variety….I’m hungry just thinking about it 😛

Dessert wise, I’m thinking it’s been a LONG time since I had a banana chocolate crunch pudding….maybe tonight will be the night!?



Despite only arriving yesterday, Poppy seems to have taken over the Kovac’s special bed:

Bless 😀 He’s too self-absorbed to really care though – aren’t all cats!? But yeah, she’s doing really well! She hasn’t chewed the house to pieces and she hasn’t run away…good signs right!? 😛

I think it helps that I keep taking her for sprints – we sprinted round the fields twice today, and then in the afternoon – despite the pouring rain! – I took her for a run. We ran for about 13minutes, so probably about 1.3miles – she loved it! She’s SO good on the lead, and we appeared to have perfect pacing 😀 She’s going to love marathon training with me 😛 Poppy power!!

Barh, revision calls me now, so I must dash! Have a wonderful evening everyone 🙂
