Lethargy and lasagne

I've been feeling really lethargic lately and really unable to motivate myself. The only positive thing is that I'm not the only one. I think it must be end of degree syndrome or something. It seems the closer we are to finishing the harder it is. Maybe the sense of anticipation has worn off, or the end wasn't what it was cracked up to be. Or it has just been too long.

Anyway, enough of ranting. Wednesday was quite a good day, despite a pervading sense of stress and anxiety I felt for most of it. I went shopping in Lidl, where I was slowly losing faith in humanity and just about everything, when I nice lady let me go in front of her at the checkout. I nearly cried. No, actually I wasn't even really close, but it made me feel a lot better. I had to go to Lidl because I was cooking for some friends, Josh and Rachel. I made lasagne; my original intention was a chicken pasta bake but the chicken was way too expensive. They came over and we ate, played Kerplunk, and generally chatted. We did chat about blogging though, that's how sad we are. The lasagne below is not the one I cooked on Wednesday, but one I made a couple of weeks back.
On a random aside, Stephen and I are currently racing each other to see who can complete their post first. I'm sure rewards will be given for quality. Obviously Stephen will win on that front.

I have no ethical ramblings or cooking recipes to think of at the moment. If you do need your fix, Rachel's blog abounds in those (well, ramblings is less applicable to her blog than mine).


  1. Ahh, Kerplunk. Brings back many memories...

  2. Even though I can't eat pasta I have to say that looks a really nice lasagne!!
