Just One Of Those Rainy Days

Well today started off well but kind of went downhill from there.

I woke up fairly early (early for the holidays, as in 8am) because I had a trip into town planned with my lovely Maman πŸ™‚

It was a pretty successful trip, I got what I went for (you’ll have to wait a while to find out, I don’t want to elaborate until I have a photo!) as well as some really cute pumps from Office (I’ll put a picture up tomorrow, I forgot to take one today).

Luckily for us, but unfortunately for the rest of the day, it started raining heavily almost the moment we got home. There’s just something about grey, cold and wet weather that makes you feel a little depressed isn’t there?

Lunch perked me up a bit though:

More avocado but this time on bagel! Even better πŸ™‚
In case you’re wondering, all I do is mash up the avocado in a bowl, add a little crushed garlic, some lemon juice, a teeny bit of olive oil and some chilli powder and it’s good to go!

Another reason for my below average mood was that I had a two-hour hospital appointment this afternoon. Something about those sessions just depress me. I don’t know why exactly, whether it’s the fact that I don’t find them very useful or whether it’s just the atmosphere of a pain clinic that does it but either way, I’m glad they’re over!

When I got home I felt like I deserved a little pick-me-up so I blended myself a smoothie of frozen banana, blueberries, raspberries, milk and ice and ate it alongside a coconut and chocolate cake/biscuit πŸ™‚

I spent the rest of my afternoon chatting with my sister who I’m really going to miss when I leave for uni next month. We’ve always been quite close and we can always have a good gossip and giggle so it’s going to be strange not living with her anymore!

Dinner was one of my favourite comfort food meals:

Whole-wheat pasta with homemade tomato and basil sauce sprinkled with parmesan. Yummy!

Just what I need after a “down” day.

{ Don’t forget that I’m after guest posts for next week and I would love contributions from anyone who’s interested, just go to this blog post πŸ™‚ }

What’s your ideal comfort food after a difficult day?

  1. Hey! Hospital appointments are the worst ugh! Glad I’ve found your blog, hope you don’t mind me commenting (I’m new nd am just starting to post and comment etc ;p). Comfort food for me…yogurt, muffin mess and a cuppa tea or a bounty bar!

  2. Mmmmm mashed avocado on toast is one of my faves.
    Hospital/doctor appts stress me out too, my blood pressure is always through the roof at them.
    Where are you off to uni?

  3. i was going to make something similar yesterday for lunch. i have some bagels and of course avocado but alas, i ended up making something a bit different. now i wish i had this!!! ❀


  4. Girl I LOVE mashed avocado on bread!! It is SO good!! And I’m sorry to hear you had a difficult day! Chocolate is my choice of comfort food hehe πŸ˜‰

    P.S. Normally I would LOVE to guest post for you, but sadly the coming week for me is going to be a little crazy! Let me know any other time if you would like one and I would be happy to! πŸ™‚


  5. I’m going to miss you too when you go to uni! But I can’t wait to come and visit you in my holidays. πŸ˜€
    Love you xx
