I've been working on a mixed media piece this week, but I haven't finished it yet, so unfortunately this post is picture light. Here is the update on the stitch though.
Only the spade and another pot to go before the back stitching! It's going very quickly. If only everything was....writing and crafting are a little lax this year. It's frustrating to say the least.

This week I decided, as most people are on some kind of a health kick in January, either weight loss, exercise, or eating healthily, to try a new fruit. There are a fair few fruits I eat, more than I thought when I mentally listed them, but there are some I have never tried. Whether it's because I am tight with my money, or that I am afraid to try new things I don't know, but this week was going to be the week that would change!
The avocado. Superfood, beloved of health fitness guru's everywhere. Used as a replacement for butter in cake making, as a gloopy face mask, and as a general 'this is my favourite fruit look how healthy I am' boast. It's also known as the testicle FYI.
There is a café in Newquay, sharing a space with a barbers and a surf shop, which boasts of a great healthy breakfast. Now I have read the reviews of this place and it does look good, but I decided not to go for two reasons. Firstly, I am nervous in new places and don't want to go somewhere alone, and secondly, I did not want to make a face at the lovely meal they'd prepared if it came to not liking avocado. So instead I took inspiration from them, and did a meal for my family.
So that's seeded bread, peppered ham, giant mushrooms (that's where it departed from the cafe's menu) and what is a rather mutilated fried egg (it got stuck in the fry pan!)
Drum roll please.......it was disgusting. Cold, slimy and bland. I'm sure it's one of those things that healthy people like purely for the sake of being healthy. Like green tea. Or maybe it's me. None of my family liked it either. Will it put me off trying new food? No, not really. Depends on how expensive it is to be perfectly honest. But life is about trying new things, having new experiences. Isn't it?
Until next time
