Another jam packed week full of the good stuff (they all are you know, if you take a bit of time to look!)
Thai Times We discovered a cracking new Thai takeaway on Friday night. Pad Thai and Beef Massaman enjoyed with the loveliest of company and a lot of laughter. Those are the best nights aren’t they? The company more than the Thai…probably. It was a bodacious Thai though.
Wonderful Wednesday In Real Life I got to meet the seriously fabulous Kate and Lynsey on Saturday. They were as wonderful as their respective blogs in person, we spent a couple of hours scoffing Boston Tea Party’s finest and chatting all things and everything. It was so lovely to see both their faces, the greatest way to while away a Saturday morning. Thanks for the chatter ladies. And for the Rocky Road. Maaan was that delicious.
Plans My most bestest of friends and I hung out last night and made all kinds of plans over leftover chilli and a Gu something or other. I’ll tell you all about it soon enough but for now just know that we laughed A LOT and made whopping great lists.
Return of the sunshine These lighter mornings are fantastic aren’t they? Even better when you can watch the sunrise and feel the sliveriest of slivers of warmth on your face. Yes yes and thrice yes.
Satay Chicken Salad I cobbled together a version of the Body Coach’s Satay Chicken Salad off of Facebook. The chicken was ALL kinds of delicious and super easy to make, do it. Do the whole thing with slightly less cabbage though, there is definitely such a thing as too much cabbage. Search him on Facebook for the recipe.
Cheeky 7k Yep, I’ve committed wholeheartedly to this running lark and did a 7k trail* run with hounds and humans. It was the longest I’ve run in a very long time and it felt AMAZING. Not sorry. My legs felt strong and my lungs were handling it and it all just came together. Followed up with a chinwag and an elderflower bubbly <<might be the most middle class I’ve ever been.
My Dad Wrote A Porno If we’re Twitter friends you’re almost certainly sick to death of me going on about this and I’m definitely late to the party but man alive is it the greatest thing that’s ever happened to podcasts. Seriously. Jamie’s 60 year old dad wrote an actual erotic novel, it’s appalling. Listen to him and his mates read it and rip it to shreds. You won’t regret it.
Snowdrops On the Sunday morning run of dreams I stumbled across ALL the snowdrops (not the snowbells as my fingers keep trying to type). There is something magical about their little unapologetic arrival into the world, ‘yo bitches, Spring’s a-coming’. That was the snowdrops talking, they’re less cool than I imagined.
Spaniel Free It is incredibly rare that I get home for lunch and el poochos aren’t there to wag their tushes off at me. It happened on Monday, they were out with the dog walker *sniff*. Of course I missed them spectacularly BUT I managed to get over it by perching in the window in a patch of sunshine and reading a book and supping a cup of perfectly brewed tea. For ten minutes it was spectacularly blissful. Then i realised that I missed the very bones of them. SO that’s freedom and sunshine and love and reading and more love in ten minutes and then they came home and it was all wonderful.
And that was my week. How about yours?
Sally, Kate, Helen, Jo, Cat, Emma, Sam, Laura, Lynsey, Kerri, Peta , Sarah, El, Jasmin, Debbie, Katie and Mimmi are all also full of the cheer. >> If you’re in the gang and I’ve missed you off, please please let me know! There are so many now I lose track!

*i’m even saying things like ‘trail’ rub-it just means off road right??
