Photo of a rainbow over the beach

The calm before the storm

I went for a walk on the beach this morning with Molly and we watched the storm clouds creep towards us from way out in the Atlantic. A short while before the rain hit, the skies cleared a little and an enormous rainbow appeared. I managed to get this shot with the phone on my camera before the raindrops started and we made a dash for the car.

It’s been quite a hectic week. But I did manage to go running on Thursday, for the first time in about three years. Which is kind of a big thing for me, so hopefully I can make it a regular part of my schedule.

In lieu of any form of intelligent post, here’s a photo of Clarence the Polar Bear. He arrived with the postman this morning after I’d sent off a wad of tokens to a well know frozen food company. You don’t want to know how may fish fingers I had to eat. Anyway, here he is.

Delicious salad with nasturtium flowers

Mmmmm.... delicious!

As part of my drive to eat more healthily, I’ve been trying to make the most of the things I grow in the garden. Here’s a salad I made from salad leaves and nasturtium flowers, dressed simply with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a little freshly ground black pepper. Just as quick to make as cheese on toast – and much more healthy.
