Marvellous Monday

Ok so i'm not a regular blogger, I just don't have the time or the stamina of amazing bloggers like Katie, but she always brightens my day & her blog makes me smile - even all the way across the pond here in England.

So i thought as i do have this blog set up still i could use it for a marvellous monday, when i get the chance.  So i'm joining in:

My Monday has been marvellous because:

  1. It's the Queen's Jubilee Bank Holiday Weekend which means a day off of work today - and tomorrow too!  (however i am then doing over time wednesday, thursday & friday which means working 8-1 as well as my normal 1 to 6.30pm)
  2. I went to Tesco supermarket on the way home from the gym for a couple of things...and ended up spending £20, but mainly on fruit that had been reduced in price due to the use by date - so i made myself a little fruit salad.  Its been in the fridge 3 hours now & i have resisted it so far and have just had a strawberry & banana smoothie with some of the rest of the fruit, so doubt i will touch it now until after dinner - which will be a smoked fish (reduced counter again!) salad.

I think i lost count of how many different fruits are in

  1. Strawberry
  2. Mango
  3. Pineapple
  4. Kiwi
  5. Banana
  6. Melon
  7. Sharon Fruit
  8. Grapefruit
  9. Pear
  10. Peach
  11. Apricot
  12. Blueberry
  13. Nectarine
I think that all of them..... Pink ladies don't go in fruit salads though - they are devoured straight from the fridge - or the shop, often whilst driving, because i just can't wait until i get home!!

I'm not sure i will be able to keep up with Katie every week, because normally i don't see her posts until after i get home in the evening due to the time difference & thats normally 10pm when i finish at the gym.  But hopefully i will find something marvellous about next monday too.

Your fruit bowl looks amazing! I need to make one up to keep in the fridge, thanks for this idea!

Marvellous monday? Sounds nice :)
I love fruit. Better than sweets ;) I could eat such salads all the day in summer. Besides, I just loves smoothies!
