The boy went into school full time this week and it was great. I had two whole days to myself, almost. In fact what actually happened is I spent an afternoon of one of them with my parents eating cake and most of the other day with my hubby on a date day cos it was his birthday. We went to the Ashoka westend and ate way too much curry. It didn’t help that I had eaten a slice of Caramel Apple Granny pie earlier. Plus I also made breakfast bread from the Hairy Bikers’ Big Book of Baking (if you watched the series, it was the bread the lady made at the monestary) which is REALLY filling…one plaited bun is too much for one person. I just about managed to eat one that day. It was delicious, but next time I make them (and I defo will make them cos they are so good), I’m making twelve buns instead of six like the recipe stated. NB We had a lovely day out together, but kept marvelling how quiet it was and relaxing without the offspring. We’re planning another soon!
Yesterday I met with my friends Janice and Tricia at Esca 2, which is a little restaurant in the Trongate area of Glasgow. In fact, it’s just across the road from the Tron Theatre. It was good to catch up. I haven’t seen Tricia for some months and although Janice and I work together (it was she who leant me the excellent Fifty Shades trilogy), I hardly see her cos we are both so busy. We had a lovely lunch and a good old blether. The only downer was how much it cost me to park there…I must have spent more than £7. Que sera sera.
Talking of the Fifty Shades trilogy…finished the third book last week and (saddo that I am) I’m quite missing it. I really enjoyed them. They were a good read (naughty bits aside!!). Am currently reading The Family Fang – sorry can’t remember the author – which is supposed to be hilarious. So far, I’ve managed a little smile at it. I’ll keep reading and let you know how it pans out.
Til next time.
