lovely lunch

I went into town this morning to pick up a letter which had been too big to fit through our letterbox, it was the photos of me shaking the guys hand (I can't work out who he was other than important!) at my graduation. The posed photos of me with the pretend scroll haven't arrived yet.

I then popped into Sainsburys to get some bits for lunch. I decided to have a cooked lunch as I start work at 5pm tonight and trying to eat dinner before then is a bit too early so I will take a sandwich with me. I have to say I bought the healthiest shopping ever. Well maybe not ever. I decided to have roasted veg for lunch with sweet potato, but for some reason there were no sweet potatoes to be seen so I went for butternut squash instead. I had butternut squash, onion, red pepper, mushrooms, garlic, chilli and cinnamon with a touch of olive oil all roasted together. Then just before the end I chucked some cooked frozen prawns in. It was bloody delicious! Wasn't sure whether it would be nice or whether the cinnamon would have been a mistake. Then I had strawberries with a little bit of melted dark chocolate. Yum, yum, yum.

I'm having a bit of a boring weekend really this weekend, got work tomorrow as well. I want to go for a bike ride before work tomorrow if the weather's ok. I'm not doing much before work today, being very lazy I think. I have next weekend off so am planning some fun things :-) I'm working on Monday and have to start extra early due to the antiviral collection point being in one of the rooms and them needing to get in to set up before they open. Which is the same reason why I have work tonight as they are open later than our usual closing time on a Saturday. I can't complain it means I earn some extra money and whilst I'm not a morning person there is something satisfying in being up really early and getting on with things. I'm off to give blood after work and then will probably do nothing for the rest of the day. Tues, Weds, Thurs, Fri I am working the late. Saturday I am planning to see my friend Gemma who is 21 this week. If we have time before that I am hoping to go and look at some cars to get an idea of the price for the type of car I want.

Right now I have to go and do some tidying up.


  1. Was the guy the vice chancellor or the chancellor of your uni or something? (kind of like the head honcho). At my graduation I shook hands with the vice chancellor. If you looked on the uni website, bet they'd have pictures of the chancellor and vice chancellor you could compare with.

  2. Yeah I thought it would be someone important like that!
