Caterpillar smoothie

Posted by Jeni in Ad Infinitum | 17 July 2010

It's Saturday in London.

Somehow the energy always feels different to a weekday.

The sky is a hard blue with brillo-pad clouds.

I've done my exercises, pulling in my stomach as best I can after a night of flax crackers.

I've tidied my bedroom.

Put the washing in.

Made a smoothie of kale, chard and red bell pepper.

Got dressed, sat down to write my blog and there, sitting on my right shoulder was a green caterpillar, I bought my greens from an organic shop.

The poor green wriggly thing is somewhere rolled up in a ball as I brushed it off my shoulder with such force it's probably turned into a bitter, butterfly before its time. It's now a bitterfly.

I only hope I haven't blended his whole family in with my breakfast.

I'm off now to do Saturday things - which is anything that doesn't include sitting in front of a microphone talking.

You have a good day.
