We are off on a European road trip soon & are feeling quite excited!
When we first organised the trip - we visualised a gentle run up, a slowing down of work & an immaculate house... Instead it has become chaotic & the complete opposite!
We have taken on extra work & can't believe just how crazy life has become (of course those of you who have read our blog for a few years will know this is pretty normal for us), but we had hoped this time would be different...
Not only is there work, but there's Bebe in the mix... Little does she know that we will have to take her with us to do a couple of jobs at the weekend, yes we are going to be working every day until we go away with little time to organise Bebe's clothes (which need labelling, as previously - lots of her clothes have gone astray), then there's all her medication to be ordered... Our sleeping bag needs washing, stuff getting together, food for our journey (not so easy when you live & work miles away from shops), we need to buy Euros & Swiss Francs & then there's work... Everyone to contact, rearranging laundry drop off/pick ups... The list is neverending, but we're feeling positive (well, Sime is).
We may not get the time to do everything we had planned, so we'll just do our best, but what we are determined to do - is eat well...
Our pre-breakfast juice.
Spinach, apple, cucumber & ginger...
We had a pint each, followed by our usual superfood porridge!
We are dog walking on top of everything else, so a quick late supper...
Baked mushrooms, stuffed with walnuts, breadcrumbs, onion & lots of garlic - slow cooked with tamari. Served with potato salad, which includes: broad beans, grated carrot, beetroot, pickled onions & mixed sprouts with a hummus & mustard dressing & a spoonful of cider vinegar. We also had a green salad for lunch with cherry tomatoes, green olives & bread.
We've been inspired to post our meals by Kath's Blog, as she's celebrating National Vegetarian Week.
And a thank you to Cathy for sending us these great photos... Us in 50 years?
That would make us 98 & 104...
Can't imagine Sime without a beard though!
Kay & Sime
