Isn't it a gorgeous day?! It would seem that things are on the up - after a stupidly tired start to the day yesterday, my energy levels went up and up and up and today I was feeling pretty much back to normal so we decided to have a lovely walk by the river in the sunshine and a little trip into the centre of York. We don't live far from the city centre (about a 15 minute walk by the beautiful riverside) so it's quite a nice, easy way to spend a Saturday.
After a bit of trundling around and a trip to the bank, we decided it was lunch time! We decided on El Piano which is a pretty awesome vegan, gluten free tapas place - originally we'd been planning to eat in but they seem to have changed their menu and you can't just buy a few bits of mix and match tapas anymore which is a shame.
Instead, we went for the uber bargainous takeaway option - Peter had Dahl, Rice and an Onion Bahji and I went for Cuban Black Beans, Rice and a Corn Fritter. Peter's was actually a lot tastier than mine - mine was a little drier than usual and a bit less limey. All of that for £2.95 each though - can't really go far wrong!
I felt bizarrely grateful for being outside - I found I appreciated York so much more than I normally do. I also seem to feel a little more confident. To be fair, that's something I've decided on whilst I've been ill - I need to stop being so anxious about everything and just relax, enjoy life and engage with the things I'm passionate about!
How has your Saturday been?
Do you love the place where you live?
