"A beautiful thing is never perfect"-Egyptian
Having bought extra cheap shopping for months I decided I would have a luxury shopping trip today. I journeyed miles to my nearest Waitrose.
Waitrose is my favourite supermarket in England for many reasons. It's stocks are more varied than most other supermarkets. For many people it is synonimous with luxury. Sadly my nearest one is in Cheadle Hulme. I decided that I would only buy mostly things that I can't get in other supermarkets. I came home with a cornucopia of goodies-all edible.
The pictures show the dessert gooseberries i bought, the plump mejool dates and a cherry and geranium buttercream cupcake. Yes, cupcake. I'm shifting my feet uncomfortably here as I want to say that my food plans are a shining beacon of pure good health. On the other hand i'm thinking what the hell it's only one small cake as part of a much more nutricious food plan than I was eating previously. No food should be good or bad is how I want to think. I will ensure I don't eat a humongous dinner and will walk tomorrow. I haven't even eaten it yet and I'm feeling guilt.
The plan is to paint and sketch the two cupcakes and to then take them round to the honey tonight. I don't really want the cake part I just actually want to try the buttercream because one is geranium flavoured and the other lavender flavoured. I'm a sucker for the unusual. A quarter of a cupcake should suffice with a great ethiopian filter coffee. There I won't eat a full one, my chap can have most of them. Problem solved.
I've solved another problem today. My jeans kept falling down. I was forever hiking them up in high streets. I found at the bottom of my top drawer a belt which is just large enough to buckle up if i breathe in. Tomorrow see me reinvent the wheel.
