Five advertisements to go (in reference to yesterdays post) and they absolutely, definitely, have to be here YESTERDAY. No more excuses thank you, and I’m clean out of deadline extensions.
I’m just breaking for lunch while I wait in eager, bordering on desperate, anticipation.
It’s another soup from the bag day, this one being ‘healthy choice, autumn vegetables with mild spices.’ How seasonal. And the best way to make up for the over usage of calories last night.
Last night, I dined out at a local restaurant with my dear friend Chamelle and her two lovely children. It was a kind of late-birthday-let’s-get-together meal (I know, I’m milking this birthday lark). They very generously bought me a box of chocolates and a beautiful sliver necklace. These were accompanied with birthday cards which actually bought tears to my eyes, whilst reading the kind words written inside. (Big softy, aren't I.)
For my dinner, I chose the Mediterranean vegetables and goats cheese tart, but apparently this was a popular choice as they had sold out. Instead, I ordered lasagna with garlic bread. Very tasty indeed.
Then - here comes the fattening part - we ordered a chocolate sundae. It was the biggest, packed full of goodies, chocolate sundae, I have ever seen in my life. Probably the reason why the menu suggests sharing it. So, three spoons came with our dessert (her eleven month old son is too young to appreciate these pleasures) and we all tucked into the ice cream, cream, melted chocolate, chocolate brownies, flakes, maltesers, and profita rolls. I don’t think there was anything else inside the glass?!
We could hardly move when we had finished making pigs of ourselves.
Hence the soup day today.
Pamper evening tonight, I can't wait! That's if I ever get out of here in one peice.
Picture of the day (apologies that's it's not the clearest pic, I had it on the wrong setting, but you get the general idea!):
