I think Dad was a bit disappointed yesterday morning when he brought home a cheese topped roll and a croissant and tried to force feed them to me but I turned him down. So I ate these for breakfast this morning.
Busy day of plans, involving meeting up with my bestie Hollie for a catchup at 9am. Her son Tom is now nearly 18 months and has started drawing. He is mega cute. I am not in any way a baby fan. I haven’t even touched Dan’s year old nephew, let alone held him! But I am fond of kids.
Dad picked me up from Hol’s at 10:40 and we headed through to an auction near to Hunstanton. I have always, always said that my Dad and his brother are very much Rodney and Delboy and they are both forever finding ‘great deals’ that they couldn’t pass up! When I was eight my uncle actually bought out a video store and had over 1000 videos in his shed for years which he gradually sold on! This was great, cos each week me and my brother would go round and pick two movies each to take home and watch. Beethoven was always my favourite!
Dad treated me to a lunch of a cheese salad roll and a slice of chocolate cake. The roll was really nice and freshly made, as was the cake.
For dinner Mum had cooked up a lovely meal of brocolli, carrots, butternut squash and salmon. I did also add some cheese sauce to this plate after I’d snapped a pic. She had added the squash remembering that I had mentioned wanting to try it the other day.
For dessert Dad whipped up some custard and we each had a slice of the blackberry pie I brought home from the sale on Thursday. Very filling meal. Again I downed about 5 pints of water (no exaggeration!) over dinner and was feeling it afterwards!
I suggested we all take Blue for a walk at the dog fields nearby. Unfortunately he got rather excited in the car and bit through his lead. Oops! It literally took him just one chomp and he was through it! It felt good to have a walk around after the big dinner. My foot is feeling so much now and I’m glad I took the couple of days off from running to let it recover from the start of the week. Hopefully when I go for my runs Saturday and Sunday I will be feeling strong again and pain free enough for a good run.
Dad brought out a chocolate bar for me to snack on on the way home. This was quite nice actually. Apparentally he bought it from Lidl and it was thick, rich but not too overbearing and sickly.
It was good to get home and see Bella last night but Dan is now away for the footy and a friend’s birthday until Sunday so I missed seeing him last night. Today is going to be a busy day of getting things done whilst I’m on my own in the house though I’ve decided…
