It’s Wednesday again! Which means it is only two and a half weeks till the Christmas holidays. And only two weeks till I see Tom again :-). And only a day till I open the first flap in my advent calendar. And…
My breakfast was my absolutely typical start to the day:
I do love my breakfasts, even if they are nearly almost the same!
Today I had a 9am lecture followed by a small gap before a doctor’s appointment. And I’m pleased to report that this doctor’s appointment was much better than the last. I think he’s starting to take me seriously and understand the severity of my pain and lack of mobility. I guess he had to take me seriously after I collapsed. So we spoke for quite a while about how things have been for the past two weeks and about the fact that things have gotten a lot worse since I got to university. I have to say, whilst I knew it was likely to get worse because it’s a whole new environment with a new routine but I am shocked at how much worse it’s become in the space of two and a half months. So as I only have two and a half weeks left this term he made the decision to double my dose this week and if that all goes without a hitch then double it again next week. We’ll see how it goes… I’m feeling a lot more positive about it though!
Lunch was pretty yummy, I tried these new meatless meatballs along with some whole wheat pasta, my homemade tomato sauce and some Parmesan. The dish was really good but I have to say the meatballs slightly lacked flavour, I wouldn’t recommend them without some kind of sauce or they are a bit bland. But still a very enjoyable cooked lunch.
This afternoon I did quite a bit of work and then laundry and food shopping. Both chores are pretty tough on me physically but I bought lots of nice food so it makes up for it! Hopefully I’ll be able to cook some more interesting and tasty dishes towards the end of the week.
As I was so tired when I finally got back I decided dinner was going to be a quick and easy option:
Dips. Made up of a carrot chopped up, half a cucumber chopped up, a handful of mini breadsticks and then some taramasalata 🙂
Followed by a little indulgence…
It’s hard to tell what that is in this awfully lit photo but the bowl consists of some greek yogurt with a teaspoon of nutella mixed in and then a load of frozen raspberries mixed in. The result? A creamy nutella and raspberry flavoured half frozen yogurt! So delicious.
Anyway I’d best be off, more work to slave over…
Happy Wednesday everyone 🙂
