January 31: A day of radishes and raw cashews.

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!

      I’d love for you to visit me! Run it by your parents–we have an extra bed! Technically not allowed overnight guests, but I’d risk sneaking you in. No One Direction sightings yet…..
