Photos of the Week #22

June 2, 2014

The past week seemed to fly by! I don’t know whether it was the Bank Holiday Monday but the rest of the week just slipped through my fingers. Thankfully I managed to do very little over the long weekend – something that was very much needed. I caught up on freelance work, did housework, spent time with friends and went to the gym a couple of times. It was bliss! Apart from that, the rest of the week just consisted of work, gym, souprun, work and then the weekend.

Coffee, good food, friends and some down time with a book that I’m really trying to finish some time this year. Sigh. Another thing that I’m trying to do – get back to reading. Trout and I spend almost every evening together, which I love. We really make the effort to try to have dinner together every night, and we’ve gone back to eating together at the table, rather than on the sofa. Although I love a comfy evening on the sofa, watching TV and eating on my lap, it’s definitely healthier and better for us as a couple. I think it’s important to sit down, eat together and catch up on our busy day – something which can often slip when you’re sidetracked by the TV. We can also listen to new music, which is lovely. It gives me the motivation to not channel-hop, but to pick up a book and read – because the TV hasn’t already been on for an hour or so.


Trout and I had a little lunchdate at Loving Hut on Saturday. We’d actually never been to the one in Brighton before – we’ve been to ones in Prague and Vienna, but for some reason not this branch!? We had burgers and chips, which were pretty good. Plus I never knew that they sold the amazing doughnuts and chocolate twists that I always stock up on at VegFest – I know where I’ll be going every weekend! It’s their four year birthday this weekend, so if you’re around you should definitely pop in and celebrate with them.

We went for a house-warming dinner at a friend’s house on Sunday and they surprised us with this absolute angel! Oh gosh, there aren’t many things that are cuter than a kitten, and this one was a real sweetheart. More than a touch of the munchkin, but I can’t wait to see her grow up. While we were there, apart from playing with the cat, we were dished up this Mexican feast. So good!


As I said – I bought all the doughnuts, haha! There are still some left, though. Well, one left.//I can’t get enough of the coffee at Small Batch, their flat whites are incredible.

I don’t have too many plans for this week – every weekend for the rest of the month seems to be booked up so I’m making the most of my evenings while I still can! To be honest I’m just counting down the minutes until the new season of Orange is the New Black lands on Friday – SO. EXCITED. This weekend is filled with birthdays and a photography workshop that I’m really looking forward to. I can’t wait to learn new techniques and get my head around the different settings on my camera better. I’m off to DanceFit in a bit – the first class I’ve been to in weeks, I dread to think how awful I’ll be! I hope everyone has a great week.

Do you watch Orange is the New Black?
Any fun plans for this week?

    That kitten is adorable! Looks like my furbaby when she was little. Now she’s 12 and fat.

    I cannot wait for the new Orange is the New Black. I watched the first season last summer and have been so anxious to see the new season!

    Totally get you on the sitting-down-to-eat thing, it’s incredible how much of a difference it makes to actually talk without distractions, and it’s alarming how little we do it. I am also counting the days until the new Orange is the New Black (only introduced Ben to season 1 last week so he has some catching up to do!) so I fear sensible bedtimes and healthy habits will have to wait…!

    your kitten is the cutest! I love OITNB, eagerly awaiting the next series starting again this week :)

    I’ve been thinking about starting to watch that on Netflix, think you might have won me over. We are planning an buying a little dining table, sitting down to eat is important and with the little one coming I want us to stop sitting in front of the TV every night!

    Oh myyyyyyy, that kitty!

    I’ve heard so much about Orange is the New Black. It sounds so great, shame it’s not available on Amazon Prime.

      I really love Netflix – worth the £6 a month I reckon. The films aren’t great, they have a lot of the classics but not much new stuff, but their TV is perfect! US Office, The League, Always Sunny… so much good stuff!
