I’m going home in 2 days!!!
In the end it’s easier for me to go home a little earlier and because my dad is the best he is picking me up in the car on the way home 🙂
I’m so excited to be back, to spend time with my family, to see some of my friends and to just relax and not have to worry about anything.
But anyway now on to today.
It’s time for another of Jenn’s fantastic WIAW parties!
My old favourite weetabix mush (I can’t go long without it!) topped with frozen raspberries. They are actually quite nice eaten still semi frozen and I think they look quite pretty like that, don’t you?
This morning I had my favourite lecture: Modern Literature and this week we’re studying sonnets as a form and genre of poetry. I love sonnets, definitely the poem form I enjoy reading the most. One of my most special possessions is my beautiful copy of Shakespeare’s Sonnets and I’ve read all 154 (can’t remember them all individually though I’m afraid). I particularly love Sonnet 116, it’s beautiful!
When I came back I did some close reading of Chaucer’s Parliament of Fowls and then cooked myself up a quick stir-fry:
This afternoon I did some more work and had a little nap as I’ve been really exhausted lately. And then made myself a little snack.
Then it was time for the doctors. It wasn’t exactly what I expected. I thought we were going to talk through my family history, get the background of my childhood and then talk about how I was finding things. He started by asking how things were and I don’t know about you but I’m hardly going to open the floodgates within seconds of going in and so when I was fairly upbeat he just moved on. I feel like maybe I shouldn’t have been so positive and should perhaps have shown how much I’m struggling. On the plus side, he’s prescribed me some pain medication which we are gradually going to increase as I adapt to it. Hopefully I’ll see some improvements…
Couscous topped with a mix of peppers, mushrooms, onion and garlic which I cooked in a little olive oil and some spices. It might sound like a strange mixture but it was actually really nice. Just the sort of warming, comforting meal I needed after a slightly emotional afternoon.
So there you have today’s eats. I think I’ve done quite well today, lots of veg and some cooking 🙂
What’s the best thing you’ve eaten recently?
Do you have a current food obsession?
