mozzarella, peach, basil and parma ham salad

After last night's late night drinking Amaretto, eating fine foods and playing Shithead at Amanda and Greg's, we're surprisingly chipper this morning. Well I am. Ana, the treacherous dog, does about 20 minutes* child crowd control before disappearing off to Harry's room to sleep on the inflatable bed, leaving me and hop-along Greg in charge of children and sofa bed.

Due to the arrival of the Ocado man at some un-Godly hour today, we have to make a sadly swiftish exit from St Albans, but the upside means we manage to get into Richmond for some vital pre-holiday shopping, and an amazing ice cream on the Green from Gelateria Danieli. However, despite her extra lay-in, and the Milo-controlled injection of pretzel M&Ms, Ana has a slight dip.

The only way to jolt her out of cat nap is to lure her into the kitchen with one of her favourite salads, and a large glass of chilled rose...

Food of the Milos
Breakfast in St Albans, Lunch in Barnes, Dinner in the Garden - his life is like a really rubbish British Airways advert.
Breakfast: Mini choc-chip weetabix, followed by Marmite on toast;
Lunch: Ham, salami, a smoothie and a rice cake, followed by a mango sorbet from Danieli. And most of my strawberry cheesecake ice cream, and a significant amount of Ana's lemon sorbet.
Dinner: Leon chicken nuggets and home-made chips.

*I am, of course joking. She did loads whilst I snored away happily next to her.
