Hands up who’s had a work meeting cancelled because the other person was castrating a wildebeest?
Just me then
I was supposed to be watching tapirs be given ice lollies for a feature for the paper but yep – didn’t happen, as the keeper was, er, busy at the time. I was disappointed, as tapirs are my favourites
…and there’s even a baby one there at the moment…
… but to be honest, as excuses go, there can’t be many to top that one.
It’s been a bit of a flat-out week; I don’t think I’ve got home much before 9pm at all except today, and that was only just – but Saturday tomorrow, so it’s all good.
It’s all been about quick dinners from the freezer this week, for obvious reasons, like aubergine burgers:
And some bought things too, like Beany burgers:
They’re so good but too expensive to eat more often!
I’ve also been watching as much of the Olympics as I can, ie turning round to catch bits on the TV behind me at work… and go Great Britain! We’re fourth in the medal table, brilliant silver for the eventers, golds for Bradley Wiggins, the rowers, Chris Hoy and the rest – and dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin set a new Olympic record with her 83.66% score, helping the British team into first place at the moment – less than a week till I’m there!
I’m looking forward to doing not a lot this weekend; riding, sleeping and watching the Olympic showjumping will all feature heavily, I feel.
What are your favourite quick-fix meals? And have you ever had a work meeting cancelled owing to a wildebeest’s being castrated?!
