There were no flowers today. There were no chocolates today. There was not even a card!
Mr WLB knows me incredibly well, and so I got these beauties…Smoked scallop slices all the way from the Hebridean Smokehouse on the Isle of North Uist. I have to say that they were the most amazing thing I have ever eaten!
I think we all like being spoilt – so flowers and chocolates and a card would have been nice…but Mr WLB and I are generally pretty nice to each other on a regular basis. Also, he calls me the most underwhelmed gift receiver ever! Apparently I do show appreciation for gifts, but never to the level he expects…and therefore I am rubbish! I am never sure what kind of response he expects in return for a bunch of flowers though!
Mr WLB got this from me……my incredibly talented cousin makes the BEST cakes and so I treated him to one. She offered to make me a box of them, but given that we are both on a health kick I thought it might be too tempting. I am no saboteur!
Smoked scallops and cake…we do know each other well!
Mr WLB knows that I love him lots. I love him for being him. I love him for being a bit of a gadget geek, for being uncoordinated and making me laugh during our Pilates lessons, and for doing his special naked dances for me!
I love him for all that he has overcome. I love him as he is my best friend. I love him as he is my biggest cause of frustration.
I love him for his terrible farts, his horrible toenails, and his doughnut bum.
I love all of his imperfections – few as they are – as his imperfections make him perfect.
Thank you for loving me as much as I love you Mr WLB…but next time, leave the butternut squash for our Valentine’s dinner in the oven for a bit longer!
Haha – that’s it for me today.
It’s been a good day. Mr WLB and I spent most of it together, but I did head out this afternoon for a catch up with a friend and a colleague from my coaching course. We talked about all sorts of coaching related bits and pieces and had a good giggle. Tonight will be nice and quiet…with both of us suffering from achey muscles and the prospect of a nice stretching Pilates session tomorrow morning.
Breakfast: Leftover chicken and bacon pasta.Lunch: Smoked salmon scrambled egg (2 x HEB).Dinner: Steak, roast sweet potato and butternut squash, stuffed mushrooms (HEA), roast pepper, and red onion.Snacks: Fruit and yogurt (no picture), scallops and mini Green & Blacks bars (12.5 syns).A good food day – lots of it! I ate the leftover chicken and bacon pasta from last night for brekkie. Lunch was one of my favourites – a packet of smoked salmon trimmings mixed in with eggs and scrambled, ontop of spinach and toasted wholemeal rolls, with cherry tomatoes. Dinner was a nice steak affair – with roasted butternut squash and sweet potato. I did some roasted red onion, sweet peppers, and stuffed mushrooms. And the snacks were good…the delicious scallop slices were enjoyed last night and today…soooo good! I also had some fruit with yogurt and some chocolate – a good Valentines day I think!
Exercise: Post PT session rest day.
