I would like some more sleep please. And that is all I have to say on the matter.
Onto better news, last week I ordered a load of teapigs goodies;
(the badge says I <3 real tea, which I do!)
and yesterday I tried the licorice and mint for the first time. It was in the jumbo pack and as I loved all the other flavours I decided I would try it. I am not one for herbal teas but it had good reviews. It tasted very much like spearmint- very nice. I could not taste the licorice, but I found it refreshing- think it would be nice in the summer. No picture but I am sure you can imagine what it looks like!
I also used my new pots for lunch today- sliced pear in one, and half a graze mix in the other (dark chocolate buttons, blanched almonds and cherries). Delish!
And after aerobics (which I had loads of energy for again so that was good) I enjoyed a slice of stollen with cranberries- can you see the marzipan in the middle? It’s the best bit- save it ’til last!
Plus, exciting news- we are getting an extra public holiday in the UK due to a certain marriage- what would you do with your extra day off? The May bank holiday is my birthday weekend anyway so now I have 4 days! Although due to the marathon plan it is going to be a 20 mile run and then probably the other days to recover! See how I am being optimistic here!
Night all 🙂

Woop, loving the idea of the day off, especially as it’s the Friday before the Mayday Bank Holiday Monday which means a four-day weekend! Gawd bless their Highnesses 🙂
Ooh, and that’s the week before my birthday too – all the best people are born in May!
I love the look of the stollen, might have to give that a go and have you tried the chocolate Teapigs??
Wahay, an extra day off!! Hmm…what do I normally do on days off…I bake! 😀
Ooh a 20 miler on your birthday! That might be interesting! 😛
sometimes its nice to have a staycation (stayiday <- that doesn't have as good of a ring to it), basically its a vacation or a holiday where you just stay home and relax. It can be just as nice as one where you travel far.
Picnics are nice too
ahhhhh I want that stollen!! Yummm 🙂
Why does it always seem like there’s never time for more sleep? I swear, even on days off I end up staying up late and getting up early!
Eleanor- I love the chocolate tea- I have it with coconut milk instead of normal milk and it is amazing :)And hooray for May birthdays! They are the best!
Emma- I am sure I will bake too! At least I have the long weekend to recover from the run!
Sarah- I love picnics too- great idea.
Laura- I love your idea of using almond milk in the stollen- am going to try that out next time I make one.
Mary- I think we should have 25 hour days and then I could squeeze in an extra hour of sleep!! 🙂
The liqorice and peppermint is one of my fave tea pigs – lovely and sweet for after tea! I’m really looking forward to the royal wedding – I want to have a big British themed tea party to celebrate, all cakes and cucumber sandwiches! 🙂
Love the sound of that! Tea parties are the way forward- will have to make scones and jam 🙂
Hurray for an extra day off for your birthday / run-recovery! I would also like some extra sleep now too. Where do we get that from do you think? 😉
Not sure on the sleep thing 🙂
I found the liquorice and peppermint way to sweet. I think the extra day off would be great, although I think I would still be studying either way!
Extra days off are always great- shame you have to study…
