Waiting to be rejected

Still not heard about the marathon, but my dad is the latest person not to get a place. I suspect my very own rejection letter is waiting for me up in Yorkshire, but unfortunately have no way of checking this fact as my mum and Stephen have gone away for the weekend.

So I’m still keeping my fingers crossed…

Battersea run 09 DecemberGot a bit lost on my weekend run today, which meant that yet again it was slightly longer than anticipated (7.5 miles according to mapmyrun, which took me an hour and 15 – not bad considering the number of times I had to pause to cross roads). If I carry on with this urban running malarkey, pretty soon I’m going to have a knowledge of London’s streets to rival that of any black cab driver. Today’s discovery was Battersea Park, which I have run through once before, but hadn’t appreciated what a truly lovely park it is.

When I came home I made spinach and potato soup (developing quite a thing for homemade soup), cleaned the bathroom, and now I’m about to reread next week’s bookclub book for the second time.

  1. Spinach and potato soup sounds fantastic – please share the recipe.
    Hope you’re well and not working too hard!

  2. Spinach and potato soup is dead easy. Chop an onion and fry it gently for a few minutes, then grate 250g of peeled potato into the pan (floury ones work best) and cover with 500ml of hot bouillon / veg stock. Add 250g of frozen spinach and allow it to melt. Simmer the whole thing for at least 20 mins, then puree with a hand blender. Add a pinch of nutmeg and splash of natural yoghurt and it’s done. That serves about 2-3 people. I might start putting recipes on my blog soon, so suggestions welcome!
    I’m okay, but feeling poorly so I’ve come home from work early :(
    How’s the leg / knee etc? R x
