Apparently up until recently, there was an EU law that restricted the sale of vegetables that were weird shapes. Every potato had to conform to rigid guidelines of potato-ness.
Luckily, with the recession they've decided to get rid of this rule - it's a complete waste of food when you think about it! And also, deformed vegetables bring much joy to my life.
Ross later made this into an amazing dinner. He's pretty good at that.
I looked at a few op shops on the way home from work today, and found an amazing dress! It fits really well and it was only four pounds! I tried to take a photo of it, but it didn't look that nice without me in it. And it's too cold to go taking off clothes just for a photo op. I'll show you guys later...
Work today was pretty funny. It was one of those days that could have been really stressful, but for some reason turned out okay. There was some sort of mix up in the kitchen and one chef called in sick, so there was no one in the kitchen until about 10am. Which might be okay, but I needed bread and croissants to make breakfast for the studios by 9am. By half past eight, I figured that I should probably just make the breakfasts myself - quite satisfying and not too difficult. So, food got out on time, chefs were grateful, I had a nice morning!
And also: it's a baby hippo!!
To finish - which is your favourite quality street?
Mine is definitely the yellow caramel coins. Ross doesn't know the flavours off by heart, for some reason. It's kind of weird - because we share so much of our lives now, I forget that Ross doesn't share all my childhood memories and traditions...
He's pretty great, though.
