Well I dutifully looked after that cake as it came with me on my travels and when I returned home this afternoon C was delighted to open his little cakey parcel. Wow! What a sight for saw eyes! A perfect rainbow Swiss roll cake to rival Joseph's Technicolour Dream Coat!
C ate the red end (see picky below) and can now be located hovering approximately 3 inches from the living room ceiling!
Last night whilst staying in Crewe my friend and I found a fab little Indian restaurant. Really good value once I had had the menu translated. Now, I do know my Korma from my Jalfrezi but I had trouble distinguishing between:
- Tandoori Mixed Grill
- Mixed Tandoori Platter
- Tandoori Mix
- Tandoori Mixamatosis (OK so it wasn't that but you get the picture)!
I've already mentioned in a previous post that I can't eat all this and maintain my non Miss Piggy proportions without some sort of exercise to mitigate it so today I have been for both a walk and a run (halo shining). The walk was around Queen's Park in Crewe, whereas the run (5.5 miles) was upon my return to Stafford. Queen's Park has these adult "Gym-Style" equipment in it so friend dutifully watched like a proud parent, whilst I tested everything out. I tried really hard not to let the outrage show on my face as a little boy occupied the running machine, taking away all the fun from the adults! OK - it was just me!
Having not slept too well the night before (friend snores - loudly) I wasn't much in the mood for a run so I took it nice and gently, averaging just over 10 minute miles, chewing a few dextrose sweets along the way to try and prevent myself from lying down on the kerbside and dozing off! Result! Over 500 calories burnt :-D Go me! Go me!
Time to scape C off the ceiling now and try and get him into the swing of earlier bed times in readiness for the start of term....
