I’m watching a TV documentary about eating five portions of fruit/veg a day. It’s interesting- when I began losing weight (other than exercising more), the main change I made to my diet was to plan my meals around five or more portions of fresh or frozen fruit/veg a day. It is quite shocking seeing the amount of companies that have designed their own 5-a-day logo and are pasting it on products that have about half a banana in them and ten spoons of sugar. Apparently, the only legitimate logo is the one of five cubes going from yellow to green.
*goes off to make a raspberry smoothie*
Roswell’s Raspberry Smoothie:
Step one: Put a couple of handfuls of frozen raspberries, about a quarter of a large pot of fat-free yoghurt and a big splash of milk in a blender.
Oh wait, that’s it
Anyway, I went off to the local amazing salt marshes with G Haskew and a piece of flimsy grey material for a photo session.
This place is full of old boats and weathered pieces of wood- all the while we were shooting, I could hear the sea and the nesting birds around us. As it was so windy, there was hardly anyone around and we had the whole marsh to ourselves (and the oystercatchers and the lady with the enormous Irish Wolfhound!) If it wasn’t so cold and windy and didn’t flood every day, I’d have happily slept out there!
I think I look like a Selkie.
As it was freezing on the marsh and enough’s enough, even for a nude model, we got back in the car… and screeched to a halt next to this pretty purple field. I couldn’t *not* make a new dress out of my nice grey material and stride around pretending to be in the film “The 300″. So I did.
I’m off to bed now as it’s a double birthday tomorrow and I have a present to wrap! (One birthday was my mum’s, but she’s already had her present- I took her to the zoo, which rocked. And now I want a whole flowerpot full of lemurs.)
p.s. I noticed I still have some free days for the next couple of months before heading out for my Canadian holiday. After that, I have no idea where I’ll be, so if you’re based in London, East Anglia, Nottingham, or even further afield, get in touch through my website!
