Today’s exercise was a 3.7 mile round trip to A & E with my eldest. He was hit by a speeding driver yesterday afternoon, but thankfully, and I can only assume someone was looking over him, he was just hit in the arm. If he had been a little quicker, or if the car had been a little slower the outcome could have been very very different. The trip to A & E was just to check that the damage was nothing more than the graze and swelling, which it fortunately is. The driver didn’t even stop to make sure my son was ok. But then if he was going as fast as it looks, then he clearly wasn’t the type to be concerned and caring about hitting anyone.
We have reported it, but unfortunately it happened so quickly, the details are sketchy.
Sadly last night I heard about an online friend who has passed away quite suddenly. I have known her for as long as I have had my eldest, and she was such a warm supportive person. While my family is so grateful that our boy is ok, her family will be mourning the loss of a lovely woman who has been there for so many over the years. Her absence will be tangible.
So today is a quiet day. Full of gratitude for nothing worse having happened to our gorgeous boy, and for the friendship of a lovely woman.
Foodwise, well, last night I ended up having wine. So that’s dry June out the window. But I am sticking with the delicious vegan foods, and have tried Freekeh which is a rather lovely alternative to rice. Lots of texture, and works both hot and cold. I have also treated myself to some exotic mushrooms. Yes, I know that might sound like the lamest thing you could read today, but good ingredients make good meals!
Oh, and I also gave in to the scales. But then the result was favourable, so let’s talk no more about it, and I will attempt to resist the nagging voices to keep jumping on once more.
My son is enjoying trying vegan more, though he did need some comfort in the form of fried chicken, and after yesterday’s event, who am I to argue?
The sun is shining. The garden is calling for some attention. I am off.
