The view from my train window

Is very pretty this morning. (And well done to the iPhone camera for trying to capture it. )

Sunday Morning.... Just

Today is windy and cold so I am snuggled up with a cup of tea and some readings. And trying really hard to stick to my no refined sugar before 3 in an attempt to both undo Easter and essay writing eating and to prepare for my trip in which I intend to try as much food as I possibly can - high tea at fortnum and masons here I come.

Darwin is outside telling everyone how utterly miserable his life is through various yawns, sighs and dejected head angles. Unfortunately no good photos through the window.

I'm contemplating some exercise but I'll probably just rest on the fact that I did circuit training yesterday morning. And when I say circuit I mean I actually got organized enough to write out a 5 min set of exercises and then do them five times with only 2 min rests in between. Go me!!

Now back to my cup of buddhas tears and reading about Pergamon and it's urban representations of the Hellenistic period and it's flair for the dramatic.

Cold morning

It's cold. Too cold to get out of bed. I'm supposed to be doing my readings but a4 paper leaves too big a gap for cold air under the covers. So iPhone time wasting it is.

I've had a fairly quiet but productive break so far. Drinking large cups of tea. Procrastinating by starting to pack my suitcase (my trip is only 6 weeks away now) and of course hugging Darwin. And not procrastinating by actually working on my essays. Which I probably should get back to as I set myself a fairly steep goal to get through today.

Happy Easter

I love public holidays (even when they are spent writing essays). Especially when they involve chocolate.
