This face. This one right here. Is a miracle to wake up next to. Sounds strange when I say it that way, but Alistair works incredibly odd hours and regularly leaves at 3 in the morning which means that we never get to spend breakfast together.
So when I found out that we would be spending Saturday morning together, I rustled up an idea. My favourite meal is breakfast, and I love nothing more but to go completely overboard. Cereal? Pah! That's too simple.
Forever pushing the boarders on Vegan food, I concocted this.
Warm croissants with "bacon and cheese" inside and some spring onion for some crunch. Chocolate granola with vanilla yoghurt and to top it off? The best part. Blueberry Muffin Coffee.
If you're wandering if I burnt the fake bacon... I did, but before you roll your eyes. I like it crunchy so there. I'm not a complete failure.
This breakfast was super simple, cheap and fun to put together and despite the face he is pulling Alistair enjoyed it too. It was so nice to spend the morning tucking in, chatting and listening to Meatloaf over my Google Home.
If you ignore my bedraggled look, this is proof that my cat is an adorable angel. He sat patiently next to me as I ate, and didn't attempt to steal anything. (This time!) Once I was finished, he flashed me those beautiful eyes as if to plead for a reward for his good behaviour to which he received some yoghurt. Only a small amount don't worry.
Small moments in life often get overlooked in the hustle and bustle of life. We get so caught up in work, hobbies, relationships and arguments that we forget the cherish the small moments. There have been so many times in my life that I wish I could rewrite. Just spend a few more moments appreciating that person or that memory but I can't. It was something that I promised myself I wouldn't do again.
It goes without saying that you only get one life (YOLO... yes I hate myself for saying that) and it's often spent worrying and running. My tiny bit of advice, is to just take a moment to stop running and just stand. Take in those around you and just smile.
So this is me. Appreciating my favourite person in a small way without really going out of my way. Just enjoying their company without distraction or worry.
Yes that is my cat delving into my cereal bowl. I take it back. My cat is an asshole. Good job I love him.
Good morning my fellow readers - and welcome back. Well, to me at least! I bet you are not wondering where I have been. No one stays up all night wondering where that obscure blogger has been as of recent do they? I thought, however, that I would let you know anyway! Just in case, you were in fact, one of those weirdos.
