Busy Busy Busy

Hello Monday readers, I hope you had a good weekend? I had my first full weekend of work at my new job which included my first 24hr shift, I was quite nervous about it at first but it actually went really well. Friday I worked the afternoon/evening shift then stayed at the house and started my day shift from 9 till 3, it sounds like a killer but I got a good nights sleep despite being in a strange bed and the wind blowing a gale outside so felt fine to start work again the next day. The weekends are actually really good fun as the tenants have the days to do what they like which meant a trip to town for coffee and shoe shopping for me on saturday...pretty sweet right?! I also worked Sunday day so there has been no time to get on here really, once I have settled in to this new work routine I will hopefully get some blog posts written up so I can get them posted a bit more frequently but I can't promise anything! 

Meals at work have been salads which are easy to throw together and take with me and I have been eating Nakd bars for snacks. I actually invested in a couple of boxes after seeing a deal on their site which should be turing up any day, whoop! 


Looking through my phone pics there wasn't much to share but I did find these two yummy meals that were eaten in the past couple of days which were bloody tasty and definitely something I am sure most of you would like to wrap ya lips round! 

I had the above meal for lunch and I'm pretty sure I will be making it again very soon because it was delicious, I baked a sweet potato and topped with sprouts that had been cooked in coconut oil and feta. A great combo of flavours and very filling : )


On Saturday night me and Dale made dinner together and it turned out fabulously. I popped to the butchers after work to pick up some meat including chicken breasts which we stuffed with feta and pesto then baked in the oven with some swede chips that I seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika. I served the chicken on some steamed garlic kale and the flavours of this meal rocked! 

This is my only day off for the next two weeks so its a crazy busy month this side of the screen but its all good and I am sure I'll get time to pop in and say hi....hopefully! 

Enjoy the rest of your day peeps x x

Question:

Hows January going for you?
