Good Mental Health Day
It seems after several months of ploughing through meetings and appointments I realise there are people I have not seen for a while. Social lunches that I thought needed priority to help ease the way into Christmas. So, Monday and Tuesday I caught up with two friends I’ve not seen for a while.
Monday, very local to home I had this yummy beetroot salad, with feta, hazelnuts and orange and other yummy things.
Tuesday, I wanted to try a place one of my carers had mentioned. This particular carer, the conversation went like this, she started with “what are those people? Not. Millennials, the other ones?” I was very confused, you need to give me more. You are telling me this story, not me. She mentioned ‘beards.’ Oh, Hipster? Bingo! I got it right! Love this game. So, Tuesday, found our way to a hipster cafe in Northcote called Tinker. Like typical hipster cafes you need to ask for explanations for made-up things on the menu. After being educated about what a ‘redox beef burger’ was. It’s after you have the detox salad and you want to replenish yourself of toxins? What the F?! I did not have the burger as burgers are a particular challenge one-handed in public and a very happy meat eater not too pleased. My vegetarian friend had this concoction.
And I had the hot cakes with so much yummy I think I’ll be going back there very soon.
Today, back to my regular Wednesday haunt and I fear the upcoming holiday spells, finding an alternative lunch spot as it’s the only time they close for a break. So, I guess you can expect some variety in my lunch offerings in the New Year. Today’s offerings, another chicken and turmeric salad with medicine.
If anyone receives a Christmas card from me before actual Christmas? It will be a Christmas miracle! I finally outsourced them to a carer and put them in the post only yesterday.
Lastly, wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year. I’ll be going home to the country for a week, which will be 4 days too long. Then back for New Year’s Eve where I might make it to midnight before going to bed. Feel free to share what you will be eating to celebrate Christmas.
