Is it just me or has this weekend really felt like spring?
Apart from an hour I spent standing outside taking the full brunt of a howling freezing wind on a job today, (always nice to have to work on a Sunday) I’ve been amazed, not just at the mildness but how soft and springlike it feels. If that makes any sense whatsoever 🙂
I had a lie-in yesterday (although not for as long as I’d have liked – thanks, neighbours, for deciding to get the hoover out at 8.30am) and time in the morning to make breakfast:
Carrot cake pancakes but without the blueberries mixed into the batter. I much prefer them crisp and juicy on top than soft and cooked inside.
I then went out on my bike to pay the mechanics who serviced my car last week. I was very grateful for their making it no longer feel like it’s going to fall apart – even if the driver’s door won’t lock or unlock and the passenger side window won’t open… details 🙂
Unfortunately, I’d forgotten how hilly the way is and hadn’t realised how windy it was. I cheated and came back a less hilly way but it’s always good to feel really exercised… and all I can say is that if 10 minutes on the Flabelos machine is more than equivalent to that then I’m a cauliflower…. 🙂
As a reward (although if I’m being honest, I’d have done it anyway) I made some more of these coconut cookies:
This was a new jar of coconut butter so it was much more liquid and the cookies came out much thinner and crisper. Both delicious though, as were these:
A cashew butter version… this is seriously the recipe that just keeps giving 🙂
And as I only had about five hours’ sleep last night and I can’t handle that like I used to, I think I might just have to scarf down a few (more) of the delectable cookies and take myself to bed. Have a great week!
