“We have defied the day as it was set out for us.”
― David Levithan

Every so often I take note of the numbers (which day it is in the challenge) and am always amazed at how quickly time goes by. Work last night (night shift) didn’t go as well as I hoped. The shifts are supposed to be ‘sleeping’ shifts but I was woken up countless times and eventually couldn’t sleep because of it. So I’m incredibly tired, I imagine I got about an hour yesterday but this morning I was exhausted – now I’ve gone past that point. Who knows how I’ll feel tomorrow! All I know is I’m getting too old for this…!

The plus side is I read one and a half books. Usually in the middle of the night, I would be encouraged to read uni books but sadly (deliberately) I didn’t take any with me. Instead though I was forward thinking enough to include Kathy Reichs ‘Fatal Voyage’ and Charlotte Mendelson’s ‘Almost English.’ Both were excellent reads although the latter was a bit tricky to get into at first – I’ll review on goodreads later today (when essay writing is over) and hopefully it’ll appear over there –> on the widget. After a long few hours at work and a sleepless night, and after a bit of rest once home – we went to my sisters for an absolutely wonderfully cooked thai chicken curry. Photos below!

“I realize that when I met you at the turkey curry buffet, I was unforgivably rude, and wearing a reindeer jumper.”
-Mark Darcy – Bridget Jones Diary

I recently watched the second film featuring Bridget Jones and I believe the quote is from the first but nevertheless – both are pretty hilarious films. The quote in particular just sums up Colin Firth don’t you think? Anyway! On with the blog.

Today I photographed Curry. I’m fed up of Blossom, grey clouds, yellow fields, hail stones and rain drops. We had all of those today and a spot of flash flooding on the way out to work in the early hours of the morning. It was not pleasant! I’d rather have been at a Turkey Curry Buffet – yes, with a reindeer jumper on.

So during the latter part of the day I used my immensely late and usually non-existent lunch break to trek into Sainsburys. It was actually an expedition. I drove into the car park amidst pouring rain and incredibly deep puddles which left me huddling in my car answering emails for a good ten minutes before I braved the outdoors. Yes today was the day I chose to wear the not-so-sensible-shoes in terms of being weatherproof. Instead I opted so very wrongly for fashionable. Even though probably the whole day nobody even looked at my shoes. You see how difficult it is being a woman?

But the rain eased, as it inevitably does, giving me the reprieve I needed to launch myself from my car and in the general direction of the supermarket doorway. I stepped in three puddles and immersed my ankles in cold murky water but I braved it. I kept going. Just before I reached the door, with the warmth and dryness of the shop in sight…Lumps of ice pelted themselves down from the sky upon my head. But I kept going. I am British. We keep calm and carry on. Those hailstones must have been the size of bowling balls at least. At LEAST!

On with the Curry. I spent most of my morning job coaching a client at a lunch club. They were making Curry. It smelt so good, and when they got the teeny tiny poppadoms out and started putting them on plates with mango chutney I had to do something about it. So I made the plan to cook Curry for dinner – hence the photos!

Of course Curry is lovely but it’s very filling. What better way to finish it off (much later!) with a bowl of fresh fruit salad…
