FOOD + DRINK

My Sunday on a plate

08:16

The rays through the blinds in my room wake me up prematurely. Not at all a morning person, I reluctantly lunge one leg from my bed and release an annoyed sigh. Today was supposed to be a wake-up-at-noon kinda day. Heading to the kitchen, I brew my first cuppa.

09:00

I should know better than to open my work laptop – I find myself trawling through emails, while snacking on some crackers and leftover cheese from yesterday’s luncheon. I do a little bit of work before my second – and last – cuppa for the day.

11:45

I make myself a darn mocktail. Crushed mint leaves, lime cordial, lots of ice and some soda water. Grrrrrrrr.

13:15

Wontons for this workaholic, along with some spicy sushi on this here Sunday. My thoughts are racing to the line-up for this coming week. I diligently make a list of things to do:

I need to save the excel sheet to the relevant folder and clean up the old one.

Follow up with xxx on my request for xxx.

Book a moving truck (gosh, I’m moving… again).

Pack the last couple of things.

15:00

Tea and a scone on the stoep. My neighbour is working in the little garden – I always love watching them pay so much attention to the plants and produce (Is it weird that I like watching them?) I pick some tomatoes and chillies from the garden for later.

16:15

Snack. Tuna on crackers – with the tomatoes and chillies I had picked earlier. Glass of water because… lockdown, because… alcohol ban, because… I honestly need to get in the habit of a healthier lifestyle.

17:30

Not really hungry, so opt out of having supper. Green tea instead.

18:00

Netflix and chill – until sleep comes.
