Hi everyone !
We started January with renewed enthusiasm and we are still here so let’s keep going ! This month can be notoriously difficult ( in the Northern Hemisphere anyway ) and a bit grey . It’s normal to feel in need of comfort and temptations are always lurking .
Just do your best. Plan ahead as much as you can and don’t get despondent if you feel you are not progressing as you would like . It will happen . Re read Californiagirl’s post from last week and believe !
Remember the days will get longer and brighter. Spring is coming !
I see that Covid tests will no longer be required for fully vaccinated travellers entering the UK from 11th February which is good news .I am still a bit perplexed about the situation because here in France cases are only just levelling off and cases in school are still extremely high . We all know someone here who has had Covid .
On a positive note my son tested negative to enable travel to Paris via Singapore and Brisbane !! I think you can imagine my excitement ! My boy will be in France at the end of this week ! I haven’t seen him since our last Christmas in the UK in 2019 .
As I have said in my previous post I am going to persevere with my ADF experiment and see how I get on . I am still trying out new recipes . This weekend I roasted radishes ( the red ones and also the very peppery thick black ones we can get here ( Daikon radish ??? ) and some chunks of kohlrabi . They are supposed to be a good potato substitute . Now… I haven’t had spuds , chips , roasties etc for a very very long time but I think potatoes definitely taste better but honestly these roasted radishes were not bad . I tossed them in olive oil and seasoning.You can add herbs, chili flakes etc . They lose their peppery taste and are quite crunchy .
Off to post the updated list now xxx
