What a mission! I’m editing this week so Tuesday (copy deadline) was always going to be busy but, on top of that joy, I had to go to a district council planning meeting last night. Starting at 7pm, it was to discuss and make a decision on a very controversial proposed development.
It finished at just before 10pm and I live about 40 minutes’ drive away. And, because the story is so big locally, we’d saved the front page for it so I had to start writing it when I got back – a late night 😦 Followed by an early morning as the paper goes to press on Wednesdays at 9.45am and the story had to be sent, checked, double-checked… knackered!
Luckily, I knew it was going to be a long day and had fuelled up appropriately with a HUGE bowl of porridge. Thank you so much to Laura, who suggested adding egg white to the oats/oat bran while it was cooking; not only more lovely protein but the texture was great; thick and fluffy *drools at the memory*
And, when I got home at about 10.40pm, I had this waiting in the fridge:
A broccoli bake, made with ricotta, milk and more grated cheese. This was the other half, which I had tonight with roasted butternut and more veg… how good?! One for the future…
So all good in the end but going to bed now…! 🙂
