I need a bigger flat – I would love to have an extra room where I can hang silly postcards and quotes on the walls, leave the sewing machine out, cover every surface with yarn and knitting needles and exhibit my badly made pottery.
But since I love my flat and M is also quite content (I think it’s because he has his own corner with the best armchair) I really don’t want to move just to get some more space. So in an attempt to create a small creative corner in my flat I made a magnetic wall inside my wardrobe and now I have a place for my postcards, favourite quotes, articles etc. and it makes me happy looking into my wardrobe.
This week I have also made an attempt to have my 5 a day and this salad is a good start … and it even gives you a taste of spring.
1 red sweet pointed pepper
2 spring onions
1 small red onion
50g pomegrate seeds (optional)
a handful of fresh mint leaves
a handful of fresh broadleaf parsley
zest from 1/2 lemon (unwaxed)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper
Finely dice the tomatoes, the pepper and the cucumber. Cut the spring onions and chop the red onion. Place all of the vegetables in a bowl. Add the chopped mint and parsley as well as the lemon zest.
Mix the dressing together and pour over the vegetables and stir until everything is covered by the dressing.
