A Christmas Day Run

A Christmas Day Run

Merry Christmas!

This morning, @TheWelshWookie and I have been for a run around the harbour. Santa brought me a new Ron Hill Vizion top and my brother in law and sister in law gave us new Ron Hill gloves and beanies, so I had lots of new gear to try out!

We had a good run: it was cold, and very quiet. There were hailstones as we walked home, too!

We’re now home, opening presents and feeling very lucky and spoiled while tucking into our scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and champagne.

For dinner, we’re having rib eye and proper chips instead of turkey. Yum!

My plan for the rest of the day is to watch Doctor Who, Downton Abbey and other festive treats, wearing my onesie, my new jammies and my new slippers 🙂

I hope you all have a lovely day planned: was Santa good to you? Did you run today?

Scrambled Eggs- My Way!

Scrambled Eggs- My Way!

I love scrambled eggs. I love them!

I thought I’d share my quick tips on making the best eggs, but then I thought – does everyone know the bottle trick for removing the yolks, without making a mess, or taking forever?

Well, I’ve made a very short clip to show you how!

Start off with your eggs in a bowl, or jug, or whatever. I used 5 eggs today: but only one yolk.

Use the bottle technique to remove four of the egg yolks:

Sorry- I forgot to turn my iPhone when filming, so it looks like it’s been taken through a letter box 😦

Then whisk:

Add a spot of soy milk

And whisk again

Now, usually I’d pour it into a pan, and stir until scrambled. But, we have a new microwave, which was calling me. So for the first time ever, and after 3 minutes, I had microwaved scrambled eggs!

I put them on top of my toast, and sprinkle with ground black pepper and chilli flakes:

Delish! Enjoy!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day to all in the US! I hope you’re having a lovely day, and getting the miles in?

For me, the closest I got to any celebrations was stocking up for this weekend’s Seafood Festival. We’re having a house full of guests, and looking forward to it! If you want to know more about the Seafood Festival, have a look here: http://www.facebook.com/TarbertSeafoodFestival1?fref=ts

So, my shopping basket was a tale of two halves. One half good kid stuff:

And one half naughty kid stuff the really good stuff!. Ahem:

Which half do you prefer?

Today’s Stats:

Run: no: today was a strength day for me

Exercise: 30 minutes NTC Get Strong, Full Action. Man, burpees to shoulder presses are killers! I followed that up with an hour of housework including brushing and mopping the kitchen floor- the worst job!

Today’s surprise strength training track:

Today’s Life Lesson: Don’t add bleach to water, dip your hands in it, then wipe your wet hands on your trousers. Big mistake. 

What silly housekeeping mistake have you made?
