I am wide awake. Have been since three this morning. I’m not a good sleeper in general, mostly because my mind doesn’t stop. When I was younger I despaired during moments like these, especially before exams, which made them worse and always made me anxious. Now, thank goodness, my university days are over and done with, but older years come with other concerns. These days I’m trying to learn how to relax when my insomnia bouts kick in. I have realised that staying in bed, trying to sleep makes the whole thing worse for me. So I get up and do what I love to do best: catch up on my favourite foodie blogs and bookmarking every recipe I like. I read until sleep catches up in turn with me, or until breakfast time, when my lovely J, who’s still half asleep, asks me if I would like some coffee. Yes, espresso please!
My stomach still has some collywobbles, however I wouldn’t mind something like this (see photo) this morning! A soft-boiled egg, so yellow and so nutritious, paired with Rachel Khoo‘s savoury cake. I have posted the full recipe and loads of photos some months back, but it’s one of my favourite things to eat. Why? It’s versatile and portable. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner and perhaps on a picnic in between!
