whilst i still get those moments of, ‘er, should i really be here at the moment?’ life is settling down somewhat. i’m going through to glasgow again tomorrow to ‘get excited about new york’ amongst other things with laura.

today, i made hummous. and it tastes good. and man is there ever a lot of it… YUM YUM. mum and i have been trying to use up whatever’s in the cupboards and freezer and so when i made a ‘moroccan-inspired’ mushroom thing (adapted from a random recipe i found on BBC good food) and only used a half can of chickpeas, i thought i’d better put the remainder to good use. along with another cup and a half of dried chickpeas rehydrated for this purpose…

anyway. i’ve been trying to use up whatever we have and it’s been a good discipline for me, along with reading a book called ‘the thrift book’. all good things, learning to live on less and live well on what you already have. (and yes, i realise that i am living and home and sponging off my parents- case in point, ‘i’ll need to borrow money for the bus to glasgow tomorrow’- and that it’s not like i’m on the breadline, but still, i hope you understand the intention.. i’m trying. and that’s what it’s about, right?)

just some random thoughts. live well.

    We attempted to make hummus the other day. It turned into chickpea paste instead.

    i like the BBC in general. they’re a good bunch, though some people dislike them…
    i miss you too. i want to be there.

    and, ha- i heard about the chickpea/hummous experiment… :)
