Green beans and new dawn

Sorry to have been AWOL for a while; I’ve just been too exhausted and ill to summon the energy to blog. On Sunday I ate my first vegetables in a fortnight, a handful of green beans in a very good salmon nicoise. I could even taste them! It seemed like a new dawn, where I don’t just eat cereal, toast, cheese, banana and yoghurt (lovely though they are and they’ve kept me going).

The lack of veg and fruit also seemed to make the darkness even darker somehow. Just back from a big colour shop to encourage the light – red cherries and tomatoes, orange mangoes, green beans and avocados, pots of basil, mint and parsley.

Pushing back the darkness with colour and a bit of paddling in the shallows of joy. Crosswords, Jack Reacher and Rebus novels and of course the Tour de France.
