I stayed home from work today because I wasn't feeling well. It left me with a lot of idle time on my hands and some of it was spent trying to clean up my computer a little bit.
I found a lot of pictures I had forgotten I had taken. Amongst the forgotten treasures are these images of some crazy monkeys that I snapped in Gibraltar.
Can you believe that this monkey is sleeping God knows how many meters above the sea, at the end of a pillar which overlooks the sea?!

I'm really terrible when it comes to sleeping late on weekends. While on working days I get up around 5 or 6 in the morning, I tend to get up around noon or later on the weekend!
There is nothing as seductive on a Saturday and Sunday morning as a cozy duvet and a cold pillow (you have to keep turning it).

I played chef this weekend and did something which was a new experience for me: peeled and prepared prawns. I got inspired by a food magazine which I bought and prepared the above concoction:
Spicy garlic and chilli prawns with cherry tomatoes and mushrooms in a buttery sauce along with rice. I also made prawn toast.
It felt quite interesting and thrilling to prepare the prawn toast, as it is something that I love to eat but have only ever bought from takeaway restaurants.
