#4 Life as we know it

Just a little update of some of the things I've been up to over the last couple of weeks. On Valentine's Day the most beautiful bouquet of flowers were delivered to me. I have no idea what type of the flowers they are, but the mix of blue and purple pigments are breath-taking. They have lasted well and are currently the pride of my room

A group of us went to TGI Fridays for cocktails, milkshakes and lots of meaty goodness covered in Jack Daniels:

After a few more cocktails, we went to the local Krispy Kreme café. I don't eat doughnuts so just a hot drink for me!

Whenever I go out, I'll order ribs 95.9% of the time. Ribs can be quite pricey - I've seen some places charge as much as £16 for them and it seems quite extreme when they don't have an awful lot of meat on them! I discovered recently that Waitrose sell a whole rack of ribs for £5.99 and damn is it tasty! The glaze has an assortment of the usual spices / seasonings but also contains tomatoes and.... vodka. I don't think any other ribs will ever be able to compete!

I had quite a serious health scare over the last month or so and during this time my appetite has been non existent. At one point I was living on half a piece of toast a day which horrified me. I'm gradually getting back into the swing of things (as you can see from all of the above!). So what better excuse for some sushi loveliness? I had pumpkin korokke, beef kushiyaki and avocado hosomaki with copious amounts of green tea

Tonight I'm staying in and having a cat nap or two to catch up on some zzzz's as I haven't had a night in in ages! This weekend will involve good wine, good company, many a film and I'm hoping to bake a massive red velvet cake.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week guys!
