Wrote a song about a weekend

November 26, 2013

This weekend was mostly spent at home, which was good and bad. I wasn’t very well on Saturday so we ended up spending the entire day in bed or on the sofa. The sky looked so blue from my window, I was so annoyed with my stupid body. Thankfully Trout was brilliant, and made sure that even though we couldn’t go out and enjoy the sunshine, we still had a fun day indoors. On Sunday we did manage to get out of the flat (hooray!) and even though the weather wasn’t quite as nice, we still had a fun day. A walk around the shops, lunch at Iydea, and a trip to the photobooth. When I met up with Laura last week she told me that Snoopers Paradise had installed a photobooth (I love that a visitor to Brighton had to tell me that!) so I dragged Trout there for some photo fun. We also did a bit of Christmas shopping, and bought some goodies for dinner in the evening.

I love the top-right photo – that was the first one that the booth took, and we weren’t quite prepared for it, hence the quite bored/angry looking faces!

We made a recipe from one of our favourite cookbooks, Vegan Sandwiches Save the Day. It’s fun to mix things up and make something new, it’s our favourite way of cooking. Plus anything tastes good with sesame oil, right?

In the middle of making an asian coleslaw. So bright and colourful!

Bánh mì – super yum!

A total munchkin face. He kept us up all weekend by running around the flat all night. He crashed into the clothes horse a thousand times so there were pants absolutely everywhere. Scratching the carpet, running the full length of the flat, from the end of the lounge, all the way up the stairs, jumping onto our bed then repeating. Over and over again. Thanks, Ras. We tried to keep him awake all day on Sunday but it didn’t really help. Ugh. I don’t know why he has suddenly become so naughty, it’s nights like these that remind me why we don’t let him have cat nip. Last night he was surprisingly good – really cute and snuggly, so here’s hoping it was just a weekend phase.

This week looks to be pretty busy with work, and I’m really trying to finish off the majority of my Christmas shopping. There’s something so nice about the thought of just being finished, having them all wrapped up – and then I just have to wait until I can give them out. I can’t believe that Christmas is less than a month away! I can’t wait.

I hope your week is going well!

    You two are so cute. And Ras is adorable as always. Whoo less than a month to Christmas! I need to get my shopping done.

      Me too! I’m getting there with my family’s gifts, and then there are friends, Trout’s family etc. etc.

    Yey for the photo booth, I love your pics, so sweet! Sounds like you had a wonderful day. I’m missing Brighton already :-(
