Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes. I had a great day; I got to go home and see my family and I got some amazing presents (two Harry Potter related gifts, a Doctor Who related gift, a Garmin, a gift voucher to Lorna Jane, a bakeware store gift card, a Goo Goo Dolls related gift and some American money for my trip to the U.S. (side note: paper money is weird)). My family and friends know me well.
Also, and probably most importantly, last Friday my younger brother graduated from high school! He is now officially a graduate and will probably be going to my university in Brisbane next year. I'm pretty proud of him, though I can't believe how old he is. So I thought now would be a great time to show you some pictures of us I stumbled across in one of my parents photo albums the other day. The pics are of us as kids and us now (at Shaun's graduation). The old pictures are probably when Shaun was almost preschool age, so the pictures show us at the start of his school life and end of it.
Please ignore my tendancy to stick my tongue out (I do it inadvertently when I'm concentrating so I'm told), my awful fringe, and my black tooth (yes, I had a black tooth for ages, and I still have a lump in my lip from when it was split open in the same fall that blackened my tooth). Also, yes, I know my brother was a better looking child than me. I have been told.
Now that I have bombarded you with pictures you don't care about - onto what you do care about - the food. This WIAW features food from Monday. As usual, thanks to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting!
Breakfast: A now regular breakfast - toast with PB, honey and banana
Lunch: Leftover vegetable pasta
Snack: Some dark chocolate. Because it's awesome. Yes, I went a little crazy buying it.
Post workout snack: Chocolate protein oats with dried fruit (apricots and sultanas)
Dinner: My pork chops with apple and mushrooms and mashed sweet potato
And that's all for this week. Thanks for stopping by - and now it's back to regular scheduled posting.
