OK – For the record, I have learnt two things this evening, if nothing else:
- Taking photos, in dim lighting, of hyperactive kittens is hard
- My camera sucks.
So I’ll apologize now for the T E R R I B L E quality of photos!! Can anyone recommend a really really good digital camera? I say digital (and small) cos obviously I can’t lug around a giant camera with me wherever I go But yes, recommendations please! My birthday is coming up so it might be the right time to upgrade…(oh HAHA – Kovac just tried to leap onto a chair, but landed on the cushion on the back and just backflipped right off again – TOO FUNNY!!)
And another thing before I launch into my post – don’t forget, sometime this week (maybe even tomorrow!) I’ll be changing my blog name to britchickruns – so it’ll be www.britchickruns.wordpress.com! Don’t forget!!
OK, now onto the day! Just quickly, here is my beautiful tub of cereal from this mornin’
Gosh it was so good…
Following that came the lectures! I left 5minutes early today on purpose, so I could shed a bit of Operation Beautiful love over here!
Anyone who reads www.healthytippingpoint.com (or www.operationbeautiful.com) will know what it’s all about I have no idea if it made any girls in the lecture building toilets happy or not, but it lifted my spirits briefly :p
After my day of lectures, I ruuusshed home as quick as possible (with a brief stop at Waitrose for my mama on the way). While I was driving, I ate this:
A marmite flavour cereal bar!! I’m not even a fan of marmite, BUT the bar had about 4.5g of protein in it (impressive for a little bar!) and pretty good ingredients (ie no added crap, bar vitamins). It definetly had that marmite taste…and a very strange texture – crumbly yet sticky! I very nearly spat out the first bite, but I’m a trooper who doesn’t give up! So I stuck it out and ended up quite enjoying it (who’d have thought, all that effort for one little bar!?). Plus, it held me over til the all important dinner, which is the main point
Then, the inevitable happened….at 5.52pm, CARTER AND KOVAC ENTERED THE BUILDING! They are SO funny and SO cute and SO friendly – everything one could wish a kitten to be I’ll just present you with a bunch of photos, with again, sincere apologies for the quality…(oh, and before I forget – Carter just dug himself into a bag, then ran all round the room – IN the bag. MAJOR LOLZ!!)
Oh gosh, they are the sweetest, most playful friendly things! I don’t think kittens larking about together will ever lose their novelty value :p
Except of course, for Obama – she HATES them! She’s not attacking them or anything, just growling and staring and being a grumpy so-and-so – she’s refusing to come into the kitchen cos that’s where they are. I feel sorry for her at least she has my bed to sleep on! Either way though, the kittens have to live in the kitchen for the next 2 weeks or so – they’ve never been in a room bigger than the little cat cage at the rescue place, so if they had the whole house to themselves….they’d be very confused!
Anyyyywayz, onto dinner – I wanted to play kitten/research US unis, so it was very quick and very dull!! Stuffed pasta:
BUT, to be a little different….I threw in some of THIS into my roasted parsnip/squash mix (Carter is climbing up my back as I type this….):
Yes – that is CAULIFLOWER!! I decided I had to re-try it…so I cut it up small and poured cinnamon over it – I decided if I didn’t like it roasted with cinnamon and garlic, there was no hope!Can you spot it!?
The result? I LIKED IT!!! Oh my.
Do you spy it!?
A fabulous meal, made better by the kitten trying to crawl over the table while I ate it
For dessert, I had my usual, OF COURSE!! Dessert time is one of my favourite times of day
My other favourite time is BED TIME! Yes, I’m an old Granny at heart
Sooo that’s it from me!! More tomorrow
