It seems that my blog is full on Wonderful Wednesday these days. I figure it could be worse though, because who doesn't like a bit of mid-week positivity? So without further ado, here are the things that have made me happy over the past seven days...
:: Handing in my notice. I told my manager that I'll be leaving before Christmas and I couldn't have asked for a better reaction. She took it so well, thanked me several times and even gave me a hug. I still have two months before I actually leave, but simply the knowledge that I don't have long left makes everything seem easier.
:: The vegan shepherd's pie that I made the other day from a recipe out of Niomi Smart's Eat Smart cook book. It took a wee while and I dirtied quite a few pans in the process, but it was worth the effort! It was incredibly yummy - comfort food at its best, bursting with flavour. Plus I got quite a lot of left-overs, which is always a good thing.
:: The start of citrus season. Clementines are my all-time favourite, and I would eat them all the time if I could. The first really sweet oranges and clementines have appeared in the supermarkets (and subsequently in my cupboard) and oh, it's good to have them back.
:: A catch-up with my dad on skype. We are really close, dad and I, but we don't talk that often. Time tends to just slip away, and then suddenly we haven't properly talked for over a month! It's always lovely to get the chance to chat with him though, and he never fails to make me smile. Family is the best.
:: Meeting up with my old flatmate over lunch on Saturday. We decided to try out the new Bread Meats Bread on Great Western Road, and I had a beetroot falafel burger and sweet potato fries. Although the burger was a little bit of a disappointment, it was a lovely way to spend Saturday lunch.
