My body is clearly craving vitamin C and in the last few days I've demolished two punnets of blueberries and one of raspberries. Also most of a tin of pineapple!
2. The John Lewis Christmas ad.
I'm not ready for Christmas, but since moving to the UK I have enjoyed discovering the phenomenon that is Christmas advertising here. Australia just doesn't have the same equivalent. The John Lewis one is always eagerly awaited and this year's didn't disappoint, even if it was less poignant than some of the previous I've seen.
3. Hot drinks.
It's the time of year when a hot drink is never far from my mind, although with a baby, sometimes lukewarm (or microwaved) is a better description. Nonetheless, I'm enjoying them and their soothing effect on my throat. I'm especially enamored with this tea that was a gift from my brother, picked up on his travels before he reached us.
4. The combination of Mini Bite sleeping on me and books.
With being ill, taking Mini Bite walking in her carrier has been more challenging, especially as my cough is irritated by the cold air and then prone to waking her up! Fortunately I have been able to settle her on me for some naps and then passed the time with a good book to hand. I've just finished Amanda Brooke's The Goodbye Gift; Sara Gruen's At The Water's Edge is next.
5. Purple vegetables.
What is not to love? This button hole kale excited me when I spotted it in Lidl.
What are you loving this week?
