Trying My Best!

It's all been a bit mad for the last couple of days, with working, rushing around and getting out and about. So sorry for the lack of a blog on Friday and Saturday! I'll quickly get you up to date so things can start to return to normal - Damn you Christmas and your confuddling of all the days!

Friday was a work day, I was hoping it would be the last day worked, but the chance of having to go in on Saturday was looming large :( As you may have noticed, I really don't like getting up early lol!

As we were going shopping after work, today's food was slightly samey...



 As you can see, along with the usual fare of muesli and yogurt, and a fair helping of fruit I had a cheeky Penguin. A refugee from the Christmas Hamper, and as it was only 5.5 syns it was a welcome bit of sweetness to brighten up a busy old day at work.

With work done and dusted, and with the threat of working on Saturday hanging over me, I needed some cheering up. Seeing as we had to head into town to go to the bank, we decided to have a little wander around the sales too. Now, obviously funds are limited, but we both managed to pick up a few bits we liked. Thanks must most definitely go to Boots for their awesome half price sale and I picked up a gift box which I shall be using as a handbag as it's just that awesome, and some rather gorgeous Soap&Glory lip glosses. Hague got himself a blu-ray and treated me to the second Twilight film that I'd been searching for. It was nice to get out and about in the fresh air too. It'd been a while! With the fun stuff done, we had to head to Asda - never that much fun, but with Hague in a fabby mood it wasn't bad at all, apart from the fact that had hardly anything! I did pick up these though....


I have been jealously admiring The Other Karen's blog when she has awesome spaghetti, and so I decided to treat myself :) I then gorged myself on Peppa Pigs.....is that allowed when you're vegetarian??? :)


You've got to love a dinner that makes you smile :) I'm not sure there's a whole 1/3 superfree there, but I did my best with the spinach and tomatoes in with the sausages and mash. I finished up with some pineapple as it had been reduced to 60p, rude not to pick it up really.


With a couple of cuppas inside me, it was time to head to bed, as as far as I knew, I was up at 4.30 for work :(

And so onto Saturday, which started at 4.30am when my alarm went off. I checked for a missed call or voicemail to see if we had been called off, and nothing, but then I checked my texts....not in! Yay! Best way to start a Saturday, to turn the alarm off and go back to sleep! With no work, I could have a proper cooked brekkie to start the day off right as well.


More LM sausages, with eggs, wedge and a mix of tomatoes and mushrooms. Yummy! With an evening with friends planned, the day was always going to be low key, and so Soccer Saturday was the order of the day! Although with not a single result going our way, perhaps we could have spent the time more productively :(

I did need snacks to get me through the bad news though!


Both Healthy Extras on one plate, with the ryvitas topped with blue cheese triangles and cucumber, with some gherkins and followed up with some Snack a Jacks (5 syns) and a healthy handful of grapes.


With all that lovely healthy food eaten, it was time to head to our friends house for the evening....where off plan was always going to happen, as it involved curry, nibbles and booze :)


The curry was divine, and had butternut squash, spinach and chickpeas in it, plus coconut milk..oops...but it was soooooo good :) Plus as you can see I had a nan bread, and bhajis and samosas. Then I had a lot of booze. But..........I had a fabulous evening, and Christmas does only happen once a year, and it's never a bad thing to catch up with friends and enjoy yourself, so I shan't feel bad about it!
