Changes, Dogs, Emergency Ramen….and Vegan MOFO 2013

Changes, Dogs, Emergency Ramen….and Vegan MOFO 2013 Posted on 28/08/20134 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

Wow, life has been crazy the past few months! I feel like maybe I am settled just in time for Vegan MOFO, which I just signed up to, because clearly I don’t already have enough going on…..

My last post described some of the changes that have happened recently…. I was massively looking forward to settling into a vegan power household with two lovely friends of mine. Tragically, for one reason or another, that plan did not work out and I was forced to leave the apartment we were sharing a week after moving in (not because they aren’t wonderful folks, because they are, and we are still pals!)

In any case, fate was finally smiling down on me a little and I found an absolutely perfect one bed flat in South Manchester; just the right thing for the cat, the pooch and me. A lovely huge kitchen (for me) and a lovely big garden (for the pooch) and just about affordable.

While I waited for it to become available I stayed with two other kind friends of mine, and their two adorable little doggies. Many pictures follow….some are food! Others are not….

I rather hope that normal service will resume shortly, in every sense! This weekend I move in my final haul of ‘stuff’ and I can’t WAIT to get in the kitchen and do proper cooking again. I’ve signed up for a new and very cheap local veg box scheme too. Just in time for a month of Vegan MOFO madness!

  1. Jenny, just found your blog. I knew you weren't baking for V Rev at the moment but hadn't realised the bakery was on hold for a while. Hope you're ok, sounds like a really rough few months. Good luck with your new place and I look forward to following your MoFo posts. xxx

  2. Thanks Caroline, it has been a bit crazy but things may finally be on the up. I could really do with a blogging and healthy eating kickstart so I think that's going to be my theme this time around. Looking forward to see yours too 🙂 xx

  3. That breaky looks amazing! Good luck in your new home. I'm looking forward to viewing your Vegan Mofo posts, my theme is everything bean like as I'm over run with beans from my back garden! Jasmine x

  4. Haha, it sounds like Vegan MOFO has come at a good time for you, abundant with beans as you are! 🙂 I've never really been very adventurous with beans (oops, pun unintended) so I'll keep an eye out! x
