I decided I needed to make more of my eyes now that I've got more of a heavy fringe, because I didn't want my fringe to dominate my face. I'd always been wary of eyeliner, worrying that I'd end up looking like Claudia Winkleman, but Suze showed me how to do it properly and I think it looks OK!

My friend wanted some help to move her boat from Little Venice to Islington, so a crew duly assembled and tackled the locks! With an audience of millions of tourists all filming us and taking photos and making 'helpful' comments - I can see why she wanted moral support! Oh, and it was raining. But I made pink cakes, so everything was fab in the end.

My sister came to stay, and her visits always give me a chance to experiment with SF (that's Suze-friendly, i.e. no wheat, gluten or dairy) recipes. This particular one came from this fab vegan blog, and it was gorgeous! Suze said 'Are you sure I can eat this??' which is usually a good sign!

It's a lemon sponge with raspberry icing - the icing's genius, you just push raspberries through a fine sieve, add a tiny bit of lemon juice and then mix with enough icing sugar to make a thick paste. YUM!
And it's quite fitting, because it's my dad's birthday today. Happy birthday Dad!

This is my Sportband - it tells me how far and how fast I've run (and how many calories I've burned!) and then I can upload all the info onto the Nike Running website. It's very clever (thank you Suze, who bought it for me for Christmas!)
Today it's telling me that I've just run 7.5 miles in 1:24.23. Not bad!

...food of the gods! I made this toast and Nutella beauty because I was meant to be going running at 6.30 this evening and thought I'd better have something to sustain me. What? I was going to be burning 800 calories! But then my running mate, Pete, was delayed on the Tube, and I twisted my back during my assistant refereeing escapades on Sunday and am still in some pain, so all in all we decided tonight probably wasn't the night for running. Which made the toast and Nutella slightly redundant, but I'd eaten it by then!

I used to have this 'windowbox' indoors, on a little shelf under my living room window. But my herbs never seemed to do particularly well - I think herbs need to be outside! So I've moved it to my bedroom window ledge, and I now have rosemary, lavender and lemon thyme.
