Here’s my latest Friday Feelgood Five – some of the little things that have made me happy this week.
The Olympics (again)
Where to start? Mo and Jo, Bolt and Gatlin (boo!), Jess and Kat, the Brownlees, Max Whitlock… and don’t get me started on the drama of the track cycling, when Trotty and Kenny became the new Posh and Becks! I’ve loved it all and will be so sorry when it’s all over this weekend. Roll on Tokyo!
Lidl Running Kit
It was Running Week at Lidl last week, so I ‘treated’ myself to a couple of things. I particularly like the leopard strap detail on the yellow bra! If I’m honest I probably wouldn’t wear these for long runs, but for short outings or exercise classes they’re fine, and great value for money.
Some people who live near us have a massive garden and grow loads of organic fruit and veg that they sell at the roadside. It’s all fabulous and much cheaper than in the shops. This week I picked up some blackcurrants. They were amazingly sweet and perfect with some Greek yoghurt.
At the risk of turning this into the Lidl show, they do very good dark chocolate there, flavoured with all sorts of nice things. And, as well all know, dark chocolate is full of iron and magnesium, so very good for runners. I’ve particularly enjoyed the raspberry one this week.
I had lunch at Pret a Manger this week, and this brie, avocado and tomato toastie was really good! Loads of avocado in it, kept me full for ages! Definitely not avo on toast though, obviously I’d never put such a cliché on social media 😉
That’s it! Because living well is sometimes just about enjoying the simple things around us. Feel free to tell me your favourite things this week, I’d love to hear about them. Have a great weekend!
