Who needs Cadbury when you can eat fairtrade raw nuts and overpriced radishes?
This morning I bought some vegetables and made this:
I’m very proud of myself. And then today during snack time, instead of buying a huge Cadbury bar, I bought a little one instead and some pomegranate seeds and some nuts. How long do we think this will last? I give it another week.
Following my salad making activity I went to the lab GPod does research at to participate in a study about hearing. I had to listen to a jumble of voices saying random things and repeat only what one of the speakers was saying. Not easy. She mumbles.
On my way back to the studio, I found one of the places on my bucket list: The School of Life (70 Marchmont Street). 45 minutes later, I walked out with 3 books. Tree of Codes by Jonathan Safran Foer (the paper cut one!), Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer, and The Flavour Thesaurus. I hope the last one inspires wise and creative eating. The books here are organized by subject (creativity, action, the mind, food, relationships, etc) and I went through every single shelf (not a huge store) and it was wonderful. Cleverly designed store with fake tree trunks inside and tables and chairs. They host lectures on a variety of topics including but not limited to: How to Have Better Conversations, Generating Creativity: One Day Intensive, We All Need Words, Stories in the Forest with Sara Maitland, How To Be Cool. I’d go to one, but they’re so expensive. TBD.
I spent the rest of the day in the studio catching up on this blog of mine. Now it’s time to go to City and Guilds for some copper foiling! Huzzah!
