We had part 2 of our Nutrition course at Maggie’s in Oxford with Jennifer from Pillar of Health. We heard about dairy, carbs and sugar this week. It’s been really interesting. Still not keen on the healthy cakes though. We had ‘chocolate brownies’ made with red kidney beans. Yuk! But in the last week I have started going organic with the veg. Anyway, applying the 80:20 rule I can be bad 20% of the time…..Can’t I?. Shirley came over to discuss our trip to Milan and she brought with her some scrumptious home made cup cakes: Gin and Tonic flavour complete with a slice of lime and coffee with Bailys in the icing. Delicious! We reminisced about Celia Imrie in the Calendar Girls!!
Julia and I went to the Lightbox at Woking and after sharing a coffee and walnut cake at the café there we saw the Henry Moore exhibition. It was fascinating to see the pebbles he took inspiration from to make his giant sculptures. Did you know he was a war artist? I didn’t. We stayed in Woking for lunch and had a healthy Lebanese meze at Jeita. Just thought I’d add that in……
I had lunch with Sue while I was in Oxford at the Roof Top restaurant at the Ashmolean and we didn’t eat cake!! But I would like to thank her for the Donny Osmond’s signature she got via her neighbour who works for Jimmy’s fanclub. We both agree that the afternoon tea we had last year at the Folly in Oxford is one of the best we have experienced. See for yourself:….
I met Anne Marie this week at the Flower Pot for lunch. It was great to talk about training and Myers Briggs. The old memories came flooding back. Here am I looking a little flushed after eating some tasty home made tomato soup followed by a dainty slice of chocolate cake. But it did have the right proportion of sponge to icing!
Mum and I met for coffee and shared a rock cake at the Yew Tree garden centre – I don’t mean to put here at the end but it seems that we go out at the end of each week….Not as good as her rock cakes!
