Today I have spent an inordinate amount of time wading through planning documents. Not just any old planning documents, but  complicated jargon strewn, statistic laden documents with a deadline at the end of it.  The deadline’s quite near too. The tedium’s been interspersed with the occasional uplifting phone call  and the intermittent emailed exhortation to do even more sifting (thanks Andy).

The beloved, who wasn’t working today, felt sorry for me and in between his horticultural tasks of re-potting figs and pruning things, decided to cook me lunch.

He did ask if I wanted anything to eat and, as I was preoccupied, I said toast.  Nothing else was offered – I had no idea of the possibilities. He was obviously mindful of the fact that for the last couple of days I’ve snatched food at meetings and decided I’m not too fussy (odd conclusion. Really odd).

So I was proffered toast with grape and chilli jam. I was hungry. It was nice, but one of the hidden slices has a bite taken out of it.  But it wasn’t an equal repast. Not by any means.

The beloved’s meal was sumptuous in comparison! A platter of potato salad, lentils with mushrooms and spinach, bistro style green and red salad and polpo (that’s octopus which I’m not overly keen on, but we’re talking of principle here). What’s more he even took a picture! The plate’s got a chip out of it though – shows poor attention to detail.
