My long weekend (inc. fruit trees and tow trucks)

After a stressful Friday night involving a loud engine noise and a tow truck, I woke up on Saturday morning at my parents house with no car but somewhat refreshed and ready to tackle the long weekend.

A filling breakfast involving eggs, tea, my mummy and my boyfriend was the perfect start to the day.

Homemade French Toast with fresh berries, pears poached in Earl Grey tea and cloves, cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, and Chobani 2% plain.

There's nothing a few cups of English Breakfast tea can't fix.

Then it was straight to the foosball table where the reigning champion (me) was defeated when my opponents decided to play as a two-man team.

After that I decided that I have only one true friend in this world…..

But onto a more serious topic. In light of the recent berry saga, I am now more consciously aware of where my food is coming from. So what better way to be conscious than to eat produce that is hand-picked right before your eyes!

So at some point on Saturday afternoon, we decided to go for a walk around my parent’s property and look at what fruit we could snatch off the fruits trees.

Figs, pomegranate, apples, pears. All fresh and chemical free!

The remainder of my weekend was spent eating fresh fruit and enjoying some activities that didn’t involve a car. I have to admit, not stressing over directions and petrol was a nice change.

Sunday brunch was at Two Little Pigs in Brunswick. The long weekend special of Nutella-stuffed doughcakes with blackberry ice cream was to die for. Apparently the Croque Madame was a winner also.

Then came Monday.

  • Watched old episodes of Saved By The Bell
  • Went to the nearby park to work out on the equipment and throw the frisbee around
  • Nourished my body with this bad boy…

While the weekend did not at all go to plan, it was a relaxing weekend and I couldn’t have asked for more. Except maybe a working car.

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend.
