One week back at school and I'm tired. Not just a lack of sleep type tired, deep down body and soul tired. Pretty sure it's the same for a lot of professions right now. I daydream A LOT about retiring and how I could afford it 😂 But it's that dream that's keeping me motivated and stopping me from going to Lidl on my way home from work to buy tortilla chips and guacamole!! 😂😂 Funny how you (ok me!) obsess about something when you're trying to be 'good.' It's a WANT not a NEED!!!
I'm sticking to the eating from the pantry challenge. Some meals are a bit basic if I'm tired (GF pasta with a bit of grated goat's cheese) but I did enjoy some Punjabi spiced cauliflower last week with the lentil curry.
I got 4 meals worth from those 2 cauliflowers I scored in M&S for 40p each. It's a Madhur Jaffrey recipe, very tasty and reheats nicely too. Find it HERE.
Emma is doing well. You can see her wee shaved patch on her tummy. The lump is just fatty tissue so thank goodness for that. We're due back at the vet on Friday after school for a post op check up and to chat about my 'options.' I really don't want to put her though another op as she's 10 and older dogs don't recover as well from repeated general anaesthetic. Plus there's the cost too. My friend has a 12yo cat that keeps getting warts that turn cancerous. So far she keeps getting them removed but we've been chatting about when is it ok to stop doing that? Never an easy decision for pet owners though.
