What I ate Wednesday #33

Hello, and welcome to Wednesday.

It was my Nanny’s birthday last weekend, so I thought it would be a great day to do a WIAW :-)

We booked a river boat trip, Nanny, Mum, my sister, brother, and Nanny’s sister took a ride from Totnes to Dartmouth, and we went out for a meal in the evening.  You can read more about my weekend with pictures on my MIMM post.

Coffee #1 review

What Newton Abbot really needs is another coffee shop, said no one, ever.

But, nonetheless we have a new one.  Ok, it’s been there about a month now, and I meant to write this review after I went in the first time.  But, I had to go back again another two times – you know, just to be sure.

Where I live, Newton Abbot, seems to have an abundance of pubs, and charity shops, and now coffee shops are taking over the town.  We have a Costa, Coffee Republic and numberous independent places such as The Pharmacy, Lemon Jelli, The Country Table Cafe, The Clock Tower, Devon Deli, and more.  Well, now we also have Coffee #1.

I’m familiar with the chain as I have visited the one in Wellington. From what I can see it is primarily the South West of England and Wales, that have branches.

MIMM: a birthday party and feeling poorly

I wasn’t going to write this because I’ve been a bit under the weather, but I had a good weekend, so it’s good to reflect and share.

Fitness Friday: Functional Fitness

If you read my post on Monday you will have seen I had an epiphany regarding Functional Fitness.  I had some more thoughts, so please indulge me while I try to make sense of them.

If you can’t be bothered to check out the link (fair enough) what I realised was this:

Functional fitness, decorating

I shared it on Facebook, and was pleased it was read and liked by so many people.

What I ate Wednesday #32

Whoop whoop – It’s What I ate Wednesday.  Which means we all get to indulge our nosey sides seek  inspiration from all the yummy food out there.

I guess it should be Fall into good habits – yep, squash/pumpkins are in daily rotation so I guess it is now autumn (hey, I’m British).

6287a-wiawfallintogoodhabitsbuttonDid I have any good habits?  I hope so!  I recorded this on Monday, I had a course at work, so things were a bit different (well, I still took my own lunchbox – lunch wasn’t provided).  So here you have it:

Keeping it real

“YOU WHAT?  You want to know my blog URL?  Why???”

I know, as a blogger I should be pleased when people read my blog.  And yes, I am – hello and welcome, I’m so glad you’re here.  But then someone I KNOW reads my blog, and I’m like all:

You know what’s even worse.  When your blog mentions them! Or their girlfriend/boyfriend/mother/father/cat. Oh yes.  Not by name, but clear as day. You know what? They might be reading this now…it could be you??  But then you’d know if it was wouldn’t you?

I digress.

Then in my head I’m manically trying to think what I wrote?  Were there other posts?

hagridI’m not saying I’ve written anything personal.  At least I don’t think I have.  It’s more in passing – such as my paying it forward posts (I still try to do nice things, I just don’t want to make a thing of it).  At least I hope that’s all it is :-)

Hello, happy hump day :-)

This is actually a What I ate Wednesday – yes, I recordered it last Wednesday.  What’s so special about Wednesday? I hear you cry (ok, perhaps you don’t care that much). But I do, because it’s smoothie day!! Whoop whoop.

I don’t know what will happen when the weather turns and I no longer want my icy smoothies – perhaps I will replace it with more coffee – who am I kidding? If I drank anymore coffee you might as well set me up with an IV drip – hey, we all need our vices :-)

New addition to the family

No, I’m not pregnant. Though when I mentioned to our friends we were meeting our ‘new addition’ Ben made a point of rubbing my stomach – he was lucky he didn’t lose a hand!

No, we’re fostering my sister’s cat for a few months while they find a place of their own.

What I ate Wednesday #30

Hi all!  Happy hump day!

It’s What I ate Wednesday, so, as always, thanks to Jenn for hosting!

Knowing that I was in London, visiting foodie places last week, you would think I would have done my WIAW then, but alas, I was not that organised, and I was too busy enjoying my food to photograph it (well, some of it anyway).  So, here are my eats from Friday – my staycation at home :-)
