Shades of Grey

shades_of_grey

Feel like someone has spun the colourwheel in my head, and it is now only showing a grey palette. I’ve bought grey trainers and a jacket this weekend, and I can’t satisfactorily explain why. I normally prefer black, that is my go-to colour of choice. I’ve flirted with browns, but they’ve never really done it for me. I’ve just now got a strong feeling about grey.

Of sushi and suchlike

Have been making sushi for the first time tonight. Harder than it seems, should be just rice and rolling in my book, but there seemed to be several little stages in the instructions I had, and it was quite the faff. Still, I’ve got my first two long rolls cut, so after a couple of test portions I’ve got lunch for tomorrow, and a starter for dinner tomorrow. They seem to come out bigger than I’m used to, but I don’t have a bamboo mat to roll with, so I don’t think I was prepared to risk getting them tighter without splitting. Will report back soon with how they tasted having been chilled. Also discovered the joys of wasabi peanuts tonight. They are hot. Damn hot.

I’ve also bought some new trainers for cycling, sort of a combination of trainer and hiking boot. Possibly the most comfy shoes I’ve had in a while, will post a photo of them soon, would highly recommend them.
