Gah, how hard is it to offer vegetarian substitutions? An entire menu of veggie-friendly foods isn’t necessary, but it would be SO much nicer if I could look at a menu and know that I can substitute bacon/fish/meats with, like, potatoes or a side of carrots and cucumbers or like avocado on toast. My husband called up the hotel we’re staying at this weekend to see if they have a vegetarian breakfast menu or if they do substitutions and he didn’t really get a clear answer. Basically they said that the menu on their website is the breakfast menu but we still don’t know if we can make substitutions. We were going to cancel the complimentary breakfast and go to The Natural Kitchen instead, but our booking is non-refundable so we’re kinda stuck with it. Oh well. We might as well order breakfast and see how much of it is actually edible for me. Also, we don’t even know what the stipulations are with the “complimentary breakfast” we’re getting? Are we ordering off of the menu? If so, is there a price limit we must not exceed? Is there a continental breakfast buffet downstairs? So many questions left unanswered but I guess the best we can do is ask when we check in on Friday and hope for the best. If breakfast sucks we’ll just grab something when we head out for the day. It’s just such a shame that we didn’t look more closely at the breakfast menu before booking. Oh well. You live and learn, right?

I got my technical drawing assessment back and the good news is that I don’t have to resubmit anything because I passed! The less-than-good news is that I really only passed. My tutor’s comments were that one of the beams on my floorplan wasn’t parallel to the wall (which just goes to show that you really do need a drawing board with parallel motion in order to actually complete these assignments) but other than that she said they were good for my first technical drawings. So all in all, that went okay and I’m relieved I don’t have to resubmit anything over the weekend. I might begin working on the next module tomorrow just so it’s not hanging over my head this weekend, but I’ve also got to pack and clean the flat, so who really knows?
