Sorry for the unplanned silence. I've been in the US living it up in ways only an expat can understand. Now it's back to reality.
Not fun. Especially when reality involves returning to work less than 24 hours after arriving home.
But there was lots of fun to be had. Mainly involving food, of course. And coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
Which I also brought home with me.
What is it about eating bad for 3 weeks that makes me want to carry on the trend? I spent all day yesterday at work googling copycat recipes for places like Taco Bell and Olive Garden. You know, just the usual 5 star dining establishments.
Anyway, I better run and do some laundry with those Tide Pods I dragged back so it actually looks like I accomplished something today.
I know, right- you're thinking BASINGSTOKE?! Yes, I spent 3 days there for work and it really wasn't bad. Festival Place with Starbucks serving Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, beautiful countryside and rainbows all made for a pretty pleasant visit.
This show finally made it to these shores and I admit to watching every episode after getting hooked.
Nothing like a trip home to pick up essentials!
Yet again, they tempt me with their homegrown goodies. Frozen waffles and baby carrots reignited my love.
Some people even turned it into their wedding video.
What do you think?
August is the month of vacations in Europe and I certainly made up my lack of vitamin D this summer. Portugal is the perfect destination for a few reasons: 1)it's inexpensive, 2)it's in the same time zone, 3)it's a short flight and 4)the weather is perfect.
Pretty packaging makes me eat my five a day.
My new alternative to Saltines. They are pefect because they are wrapped in personal portions. Get them at Partridges. (They also come in whole wheat and unsalted.)
I've had a hard time finding some fake flowers that look decent enough for me to want in my house. So I made some out of tissue paper and I quite like them. This isn't their final home, just a resting place while I whip up a few more.
