It's a short one (and no, I am not referring to myself)

Hello beginning of the working week!

I am, however, just too excited to be productive today.  Many may not understand my excitement but it’s because I found out that my next hospital placement, at the beginning of September, is going to be in Accident & Emergency!  Amazing!  I think it will be more my style of nursing- the pressure, the pace, the range and type of patients I’ll come into contact with.  I cannot wait.  Somehow I have to focus on essays and revision before then.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share some of my favourite foods of the moment with you.

Organic, unsulphured, dried apricots.   I seriously love these.  If it wasn’t for the f-factor from all that fibre I could munch my way through the bag in one sitting.  And they’re rich in iron, vitamins A and C.  What’s not to love.  They have a deep, almost chocolate-like flavour.  Yum.

Speaking of chocolate, I have also been enjoying:

Chocolate Almond Milk! All you need is your favourite, calcium and vitamin E rich, homemade almond milk and a tablespoon or two of cocoa.  Combine them together and whisk away until ready for consumption.  Refreshing and decadent.

And there you have today’s somewhat short blog post.  Hope you all had a good weekend.
