Life has been plodding on lately, with work keeping me busy, as well as adjusting to new living arrangements and dealing with a canine problem-child. My energy has been lacking, though I’ve been (doing precisely what I shouldn’t and) pushing myself physically nonetheless. I think I’ll give myself a wee break this week, and take ‘er easy.
But how about some tasty vegan eats? Below we see a much-appreciated vegan selection available at Velbekomme in Chorlton. At the moment, only the savoury offerings have a vegan option, but I spoke with the super lovely folks behind the counter who assured me they were working on creating the perfect vegan-friendly Scandi desserts. Yes please!
This was doubly tremendous in that it served as a little preview for a trip to Copenhagen I am taking in October, accompanied by my lovely new beau. We thought we’d make an adventure of going to see Nick Cave, and you’d better believe I’m already filling up a Google map with vegan food destinations OF COURSE.
But what else? Well, I’ve been tapping away on my keyboard a fair old bit lately and have had a couple of wee pieces accepted for publication by the very splendid Femsplain. They’ve already published a piece I wrote about invisible illness, and will soon publish a piece about being a fat vegan.
Femsplain also have a lovely side project called Aloe, which is focused on physical and mental health and wellbeing, and self care. Aloe recently accepted me as a blogger/contributer so I’m excited about being a part of such a great initiative. They just produced a sweet little self-care printable which is available on a pay-what-you-can basis.
What other news? Oh, I dyed my hair a different colour for the first time in 10 years!! I don’t know quite what came over me, readers, but all I know is that suddenly I absolutely needed to have black hair, and so it was.
That about wraps it all up for now, friends, as life has been busy but rather exhausting lately and so I don’t have much to report. On Friday, we’re off to London for a weekend of sightseeing and eating ALL THE CAKE. It’ll be swell to see Jojo aka Vegan In Brighton there, and to spend a little time away from it all.
Wishing you all a wonderful week to come, my blog chums!
