Photos of the Week #19

May 13, 2014

WEEK 19 OF 52

 
 

Laia was here for a few days last week, which was so lovely. We didn’t get up to too much – just ate, drank plenty of coffee, had lots of chats, hung out on the beach and spent way too much time in photobooths. I love this photo of Laia using her medium format camera on the pebbles. She’s such an amazing photographer, especially when it comes to the sea.

We rustled up a tapas fiesta mezze dinner one evening, including homemade babaghanoush, falafel, hummus and salad. We had lunch at Wai Kika Moo Kau, dinner at Chaulas and lunch at VBites. So yeah, plenty of food. We also visited the Museum – as you can see, Laia nailed her Punch’n’Judy skills ;)

 
 

For my sister’s birthday we all drove up to the British Wildlife Centre to spend the day together. It was so much fun! Quite an awful photo, but I baked this rhubarb and custard cake for her, which we all tucked into at the cafe.

 

There were so many red squirrels at the Centre, it was amazing! My family have all been there a few times, and my Mum was so excited about seeing the red squirrels again. She was telling us all the night before and the morning before we left – ‘Quick, quick, we have to get there for 10am so that we can hang out with the squirrels before they get fed at 10.30am!’

But you know what? She was totally right. They crawled all over us – up our legs, across our shoulders, from one person to the other. It was kind of odd at first, but they were so cute.

 

Other things I’ve been eating this week; a post-gym smoothie bowl, while watching Made in Chelsea. The perfect indulgent evening after I’d left Laia at the station, gone to workout, and had the rest of the afternoon to myself at home. Bliss. I’ve also been trying lots of new bars (to me, anyway) including a Meridian peanut bar, and two different Trek protein flapjacks. I highly recommend them all!

 

So that’s what I got up to last week! It was so lovely to catch up with Laia, and enjoy a five-day holiday, including an afternoon entirely to myself. I’ve been loving all of the new bars I’ve been trying lately, too. I go through phases when it comes to protein bars, and I’m definitely knee-deep in an obsession right now! They can be quite expensive (OK, they’re pretty much all expensive…) so I think I’ll be getting back into making my own raw balls, which I used to really enjoy. Do you have any favourite recipes you could share with me?

      It is indeed! It’s got rhubarb inside, custard in the icing, crumble around the outside and sweets on top x

    Holy moly, there’s a lot of good looking food here, it’s making me hungry! And I haven’t had a rhubarb and custard sweet since I was a kid, I used to get a quarter of them from the shop :) x

      I was never really a fan but they’re Trout’s favourites so I’ve grown to like them!
