I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Sunday morning started off for me with a trip to the allotment:
It was super weedy! We let the grass grow on the paths between the beds, but the weeds were not paying attention to my rules. Anyway, about an hour and a half later, I was very satisfied with how it was looking:
My Dad planted those leeks for me a few weeks back, so that bit only needed a teeny bit of weeding. I also managed to pick some raspberries 🙂 I am amazed they are still going strong.
I spent a bit of time envying the plot next to mine:
Amazing pumpkins- they are massive and there are loads! My pumpkin plant still only has teeny flowers on it- no chance of one this year.
After that I was in need of breakfast!
After some work, Andy and I popped into town as we needed to get a few bits- we also popped to Starbucks 🙂 He tried a pumpkin latte (and made me try a bit even though I don’t like coffee- the coffee taste overwhelmed anything else, but Andy quite liked it)- I had the usual chai tea latte- sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg. I heard someone order a vanilla chai tea latte, so I am sure I will be able to ask for the pumpkin syrup with that- has anyone done that before?
I also went into Waitrose, and picked up a copy of the Love Life magazine.
I have bought it a few times and it is OK, but I saw a sign saying it was free with a My Waitrose card (I was persuaded to have one a while back, but usually you get 1p off each shop!)- anyway, inside was a little Almond Breeze booklet, plus vouchers for free plain and chocolate almond milk! Result!
As it has been getting colder I have been having porridge (with almond milk or coconut milk)- this week was with pumpkin purée molasses, spices and sometimes a nectarine too. Nice and warming 🙂 It is so dark in the mornings now- pitch black outside when I have my breakfast 🙁
Then, when I got home from work today, I had this on the door mat! Less than 2 weeks til the next half marathon! It spurred me on for my 3 miler- managed 3.1 in 31 mins, so keeping up the speed 🙂
What are you excited about right now? Anyone tried the pumpkin latte (without coffee?)?
