I made it through the weekend! Hurrah! This might seem a little over enthusiastic but I worked through it and got there in the end.
Sometimes it is rather quiet when I work weekends, meaning I have a little bit of a life but sadly that was not to be this time around. There still was a little bit of fun to be had though.
I’m actually starting my recap on Thursday as I was ill on Friday and took the day off. This very rarely happens but I began feeling awful on Thursday and things had not improved by the morning.
Here’s what happened:
I battled through feeling rubbish and met my Mum for dinner after work. We went to Carluccios, an Italian chain restaurant and pretty much devoured a bread basket and peach juice before my meal arrived.
Gorgeous Tuna Nicoise – minus the anchovies as they freak me out.
It seems I’m a good orderer – Men’s Fitness did an investigation into healthy eating at restaurants and voted the Tuna Nicoise the best main to have at Carluccios! Their guide features Nandos, Pizza Express, Wagamamas and Yo! Sushi and is well worth a look before you head out to eat.
Most of Friday was spent in bed feeling sorry for myself. Lots of sleep, fluids and erm chocolate was needed to get my body back to fighting form.
These also helped:
There was also an offer on strawberry clouds, which I hadn’t tried before and decided to give them a go.
Back to the grind with tissues and tears. I had a pretty rough job on Saturday morning and totally did not feel up for it but my colleague helped me get through it. We nailed it, if I do say so myself
When I reached home I told James I wanted my usual dinner in a bowl.
Is it weird that it tasted oh so much better? It was amazing! Then it was time for dessert. I warmed some frozen cherries by pouring boiling water over them and enjoyed them with some pecan caramel ice cream.
I like to think my cherry to ice cream ratio was pretty good
One thing definitely aided my recovery – cuddles with Flake!
Laughter is a great medicine too and finally watching The Muppets Movie was a great moment!
Oh the joys of eating lunch at my desk. This soup is amazing though – really chunky and tastes clean. I think its the second best thing to homemade.
I was quite pleased with the results – I’ll post the recipe tomorrow so you have time to make them yourself if you fancy it.
They were mainly plain but I cooked four baby hearts with dates in. Really tasty! All I can say is these babies are beyond easy and can be dairy free, gluten-free, vegan – they don’t have any eggs in.
Hope you had a great weekend – I’m looking forward to mine starting in five days time
