I got lots of responses about my banana guard
Incase you were wondering- I got it from Amazon and cost between £5 and £6. I’ve yet to find a banana that hasn’t fit in!
I’ve had a heavy hand today.
Breakie/Lunch (I slept late today)
Heavy handed example number 1: almonds.
Maybe I should use a spoon to measure my porridge toppings.
With a chocolate milk. I went to the gym and did 40mins cardio and upper body strength work.
Heavy handed example number 2: chilli powder.
I thought I’d be really thrifty and make my own stir-fry sauce.
3 mouthfuls later and my lips were on fire! I can handle a lot of chilli but turns out half a teaspoon of hot chilli powder and a hot red chilli is more than I can handle 😦 It was so tasty but my lips were in severe pain so I had to give up on it!
so I finished these strawberries instead. Brushed onto a plate with a teaspoon of sugar. Eating strawberries this way reminded me of a poem I read in a Glasgow underground station last year sometime. I luckily managed to find it online-
There were never strawberries
like the ones we had
that sultry afternoon
sitting on the step
of the open french window
facing each other
your knees held in mine
the blue plates in our laps
the strawberries glistening
in the hot sunlight
we dipped them in sugar
looking at each other
not hurrying the feast
for one to come
the empty plates laid on the stone together
with the two forks crossed
and I bent towards you
sweet in that air
in my arms
abandoned like a child
from your eager mouth
the taste of strawberries
in my memory
lean back again
let me love you
let the sun beat
on our forgetfulness
one hour of all
the heat intense
and summer lightning
on the Kilpatrick hills
let the storm wash the plates
How pretty is that?
Then I went to my Mum’s to steal food to visit. My Mum is lovely- she won’t let me leave without taking something with me. Today it was fruit and a strawberry muffin 🙂
The muffin is no longer in existance, well not in that same form anyways.
I’m looking forward to tomorrow, a full day of the littlest kids in school. Bring on the fun, and the bogies 🙂
I loved hearing about your playground games- we played British bulldog too but it did get very violent and was banned! I also remember playing Thundercats and being made to be Mumm-ra. He was the scary ugly one:
Kids are cruel . . .
When I was doing teacher training one of the kids in a nursery placement told me I looked like Nanny McPhee:
Perhaps it’s time to do something about my eyebrows . . .
I personally liked to think she was confused and meant I looked like a girl from the film Nanny McPhee:
Much prettier 🙂
Have you ever been likened to anyone famous? Someone once told me I looked like Kelly Brook but I think he was hoping flattery would get him somewhere it wouldn’t , if you know what I mean 😉
