March Round Up

How have I felt?

I went and had some blood tests for the fatigue I’ve been experiencing and I’ve started to receive treatment and will continue to be monitored. I have had an appointment with a herbalist student at the College of Natural Medicine to do all that I can be to be helping myself.

What new foods have I been trying?

I picked up some new products in Sainsburys, the Quorn nuggets and the Cauldron burgers and sausages. I had the nuggets with curry udon that my Husband made. They are nice to have in the freezer for emergencies but I think I need to do a taste test to see whether I prefer these or the Fry’s ones!

I had the sausages which are tomatoey and beany with mash and veg. They are nice and a bit different to other sausages and because of the flavour not the most versatile. I haven’t tried the burgers yet.

We went down to Ramsgate for the weekend so I marinated some tempeh to have with breakfast. This was from the cookbook Baconish, I really liked the flavour but I think I’ll need to try and get the tempeh thinner next time!

I had a great lunch which I blogged about here.

I had some lemon and blackcurrant sorbet at a parlour on the front.

I completely stuffed my face at Seaside Cake Parlour in Margate and brought home some cakes too!

I went to Glasgow for work and ate dinner at Mono with my friend Christine which I wrote about here.

I went to The Gate in Hammersmith and had a fabulous meal which I wrote about here.

What have I been enjoying?

I started off the month with a bang and went to see Cabaret vs Cancer Ashes II Ashes David Bowie tribute with my Mum. There were singers, dancers and all sorts of performers. It was like nothing I’ve seen before!

As I’ve previously mentioned we had a lovely weekend away in Ramsgate and stayed at a lovely cottage available to rent here.

I took part in the UN day against racism by marching in London and I shared some photos of the day here.

We went and saw the fabulous Postmodern Jukebox and I was amazed at the skills of the performers.

I can’t believe I’ve done so much in March. It’s definitely been a busy month!

Plans for April

April will be a quieter month. I did have plans to go on holiday but unfortunately those had to be cancelled. I plan on doing some vegan activism and hopefully will spend some time with my cousin and his wife. We haven’t got any plans for Easter yet but it should be a nice break.

How has your March been? Let me know in the comments.

F.R.I.E.N.D Animal Rescue

Today I visited F.R.I.E.N.D Animal Rescue with my Mum and cousin Katy as part of their open day.

FRIEND is a 10 acre animal sanctuary in rural Kent. They receive animals that have been rescued from abuse, when owners have died and sometimes animals are even dumped on their doorstep. The animal sanctuary is a no kill, free roaming home to cows, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys as well as more than 30 pigs.

FRIEND rely on donations to pay for food, bedding, essential equipment and veterinary bills, they also rely on volunteers to keep the site running. You can donate money via the website and they also have an amazon wishlist which you can access here. You can also find out about volunteering opportunities on the site.

FRIEND promote the vegan lifestyle and we enjoyed some amazing vegan lemon drizzle cake while we were visiting!

If you have the opportunity to visit an animal sanctuary I would really recommend it. These animals have been rescued from a horrible life and can now live out their days free and in comfort. All the money goes towards caring for these animals unlike zoos which exploit animals for profit.
