I was inspired to share my day by Jeanne's photo diary post. That was yesterday. I regretted saying I would join in, as Jeanne's day looks totally idyllic in comparison!
Here's a weekday in my life...
I normally get up, dressed and out and have my breakfast at the office. I didn't take a picture of my breakfast. I make it in the microwave with porridge oats and water, with a little bit of soya 'cream'. Lovely!
I always have paperwork to deal with in the morning, but I love the variety of my job.
Today we were surprised by an Easter gift from the wife of one of the ARC team. Look at these gorgeous home made Easter chicks!
Each one concealed a Creme Egg. We sold them for £1 each and donated the money to the local animal sanctuary. Funnily enough, they sold like hot cakes!
Tinned spaghetti on toast for lunch, as I was late up this morning. I was pulled up at lunchtime by my friend "I thought you only ate healthy food??'. Nothing too much wrong with spaghetti on toast in my opinion.
I'd been fed, so 'security' (aka a gang of corvid bouncers) have to be fed...
Here they come, as they do every day. Excuse the picture quality, it's taken from my office window as they get understandably jittery about eating around people
They complained about the toughness of the offerings today by gulping and regurgitating it. Nice. Thank goodness I'd eaten.
And then they left with their stash for better pickings.
They make us laugh every day, and I really enjoy watching them. We are at the side of a very busy expressway and it's interesting that the first birds to spot food are crows and magpies. They never miss a trick!
Anyway, that's lunch break over.
IT problems, a tender to complete, a reference to write, a social media policy to finish off, the afternoon gone...
But nature is never far from my mind.
At the end of the day, a course to think about.
And home, out of heels and into flipflops. Dinner's on the hob. I love curry, and almost any veg will turn into a great curry. This evening it's a particularly unusual mix, due to the arrival of my veg box and supermarket shop. It's a spicy, peppery curry, tempered by coconut milk - veggies in here tonight are okra, spring greens, onions, tomatoes and butter beans.
I've eaten dinner, and listened to this...
and just playing my favourite Bryan Adams track
