I have had such a lovely saturday- some running, some gardening and some baking. These pretty much equal a perfect saturday.
First up is the run! The plan was for 10 miles- having a cut back week after the last few weeks of higher mileage. I thought I had run 10 miles a couple of weeks back, and so I went out on that route. I also thought the weather would be colder- I had on a craft long sleeved top and a jacket over that (luckily left the gloves and ear warmer at home)- well after a mile I had to stop and take the jacket off but I was still too hot. The run was ok- I had some clif blok things during the run. But it turned out that I miscalculated/ misremembered the route and ended up doing 11.7 miles- whoopsie. Then when I looked at my plan, due to me being ill and missing a few runs I actually have not run 10 miles for 7 weeks. Silly me again. Half a mile from home I had to stop and cross a busy road and when I started running again my muscles had practically seized up- the last half mile was a painful stiff hobble. I am alright now though. So another lesson learned- actually plan my route.
I got a friendly wave from one runner, and a “hello” from another one which I always like. Also when running around the park there was a big white hissing goose on the path- they are nearly as tall as me. I said out loud “I don’t like the look of you” and then a man (who was also right in front of me) turned around and said “were you talking to me?”- I had to admit that no, I was talking to the scary goose. Whoopsie again.
Kara coconut milk with nesquick, and a Hazelnut honey stick. This was so amazing (my first time trying it) that I took a pic once it was opened too- how unlike me;
Yum– a gooey carob (tastes like chocolate) centre coated in hazelnuts.
I also put all my nakd bars in a box today (remember a while back I got the deal off the website?)- well I think it will keep us going for a long time;
They are all about 4 deep I think!
After some soup it was time for gardening. I didn’t take any pictures but I saw so many ladybirds 🙂 It was such a perfect day for it too.
Then I got down to baking- I made some raspberry and white chocolate brownies for tomorrow. Basically I made a normal brownie, and then sprinkled it with some chopped white chocolate and the last of my frozen raspberries.
Before baking and then after slicing.
It is so good- the raspberries turn into a sort of sharp jam. Yum.
Then it was time to lay on the sofa (compression socks on) with some tea and snacks.
Lovely Whitards Christmas tea 🙂
So – your perfect Saturday?

My perfect Saturday sounds very similar to yours: good weather, a good run and plenty of raw chocolate 🙂
I laughed out loud when I read your story about the geese: they’re evil, particularly the white ones with the orange bills.
Hope your legs recover soon!
Great minds think alike!
Yeah those white geese are the worst!
I love the Nakd bar stash, I wish I had one! It sounds like you had a good run and a nice Saturday.
haha you made me laugh with your geese talking when the man in front thought you were talking to him lol 🙂 x
talking to geese ….. what are you like heeheehee 🙂
Perfect Saturday would also involve a good run followed by a big green smoothie to refuel then a trip into town for a coffee and some food shopping then coming home and chilling out, pottering round the kitchen to make dinner followed by a glass of red then bed! Sounds like you had a lovely day 🙂
That goose story is brilliant! Crazy lady. And I think my perfect Saturday would include one of those brownies 😉
Yeah I did feel a bit crazy in the park! I do talk to myself a bit at home, but not normally out in public!
Laura you would pack so much in to your saturday!
Alison- I have got to wait until Sunday to enjoy a brownie! 🙂
awesome nakd stash!
I hate geece! I was bitten by one when I was little and I’ve been scared of them ever since. The brownie looks delicious – I love your baking 🙂
Loving the look of that honey stick! And those brownies… DROOL!
Sarah poor you- not surprised you hate them.
I laughed out loud at your goose story! And those brownies look amazing and thats coming from someone who doesn’t even like white chocolate!
Well go for the raspberry and dark chocolae chip combo- that would be just as good 🙂
