Skinny dipping....

I know that most people dread going back to work after Christmas but I've got a secret. Sssssshhhh.... I'm glad to be back. I like the routine of getting up at the same time, coming home at the same time. I like seeing my work friends again....

And in the same way I like getting back to normal foodwise. I like fruit and yoghurts instead of biscuits and chocolate coins. But before I tell you about my new healthy eating regime, here's what I did on Sunday.....

On Scilly we don't have any real woodland so I'm fascinated by them. Intrigued by the creepiness and the way the plants engulf everything around them.

We went to Tehidy Woods on the North Coast......

It was such a lovely day. Despite that we only saw one other couple...

I got completely disorientated. Luckily my other half has inbuilt GPS!

Then we jumped back in the car and drove 5 minutes up the road to the coast....this looks up to Perranporth and Padstow.

Anyway back to the healthy eating. I'm sure many of you are trying to think of ways to cut down on calories so over the next few weeks I'm just going to be blogging low fat, low calorie meals.
But I promise you one thing, they will be yummy! So it's goodbye Christmas sandwiches (farewell festive ham) and hello poached eggs and marmite on crumpets....


  1. What beautiful pictures!! What a nice walk and what a view!! and I think you might be a little crazy for liking going back to work. hehe but I do hear ya on the routine...

  2. Mmmm, that sounds like a delicious breakfast to me! Have you tried Jamie's eggy crumpets? A lovely variation on the same ingredients - Although it's fried, so possibly not as healthy!

  3. Thanks for the comments! It's looking a lot more snowy that this today! I shouldn't have said I loved coming back to work because I may have to stay overnight tonight!!

    Nora you must be pychic. Yesterday after I ate my crumpet I thought "I really need to make those eggy crumpets I saw the recipe for!"
