Photos of the Week #36, #37 and #38

September 23, 2014

WEEKS 36, 37AND 38 OF 52

I’m just slightly (!!!) behind with my Photos of the Week series, so here are the last three weeks all updated at once. It’s a combination of a few more holiday photos, plus some bits and bobs that I got up to before and after our break in Greece.


Wearing one of my favourite t-shirts to bed.//Rasputin may look cute in this photo, but that night he was not cute at all. He pissed on the carpet, and we weren’t speaking. Although I’m not sure he totally realised that we weren’t speaking.//Cinnamon buns! As an alternative birthday cake my sister bought me a tube of Jus-Rol cinnamon buns, and they are amazing! I’m picking up another tube ASAP – they’re so simple to make (chop the pre-made dough into six pieces and bake for a few minutes. They’re the perfect way to start the day, and they keep really well so they lasted me for a few more breakfasts. Yum!)//


Exactly what holidays are about; spending time at a beautiful beach, fresh nectarines, a brand new book, suntan lotion and some swimming pool accessories.//


I loved having a full length mirror! We don’t have one in our flat, and I forget how good they are when you’re getting ready (and for taking outfit selfies…)//


This was amazing! A true cake/life hack. One box of cake mix. One can of coke. Combine, pop in a tin, bake for 20 minutes and BANG! You’ve got yourself a cake. How does it work?! It must be vegan pixies or something.//


After a night out in town (during a thunderstorm, great planning!) the boozy boys bought cigars. They’re so gross! But it was kind of funny, too.//


Here’s Barry Big Balls, our resident cat for the week. He was so cute, and he really loved Christina. It was so sad to say goodbye!//


Another stray cat in a restaurant. Oh, they are just the sweetest.//My view one afternoon by the pool. These guys are nearly 30, and hold some pretty serious positions in their working lives, but put them in a pool and they digressed to teenagers…! This would be a ‘holding-your-breath-underwater’ competition.//


Back to reality, and a trip to Kingston to warm a friend’s new home. It was so lovely to catch up with these girls, and Rosie put on the best spread of food.//Simpson’s Monopoly! So much fun, especially as I won ;) Rasputin also kindly played banker for a while. He was so interested in the game, it was so cute. I think he loved all the movement, like when we were rolling the dice and moving pieces around. He kept trying to walk across the board, before retiring to take a nap in the lid of the box.//


GIANT COYO! My love really has taken on another level.//A lovely lunch put together by Trout at the weekend; a bed of spinach and watercress, an amazing tahini dressing that I found in Waitrose, noodles, cauliflower and broccoli, tofu, spring onions, another yummy dressing and a few pieces of jerky that we buy from a local Korean supermarket. I sat in bed eating this while catching up with Made in Chelsea. Perfect Saturday afternoon!//Aaah Rasputin. Too cute.//

So, that’s what I’ve been up to in the past few weeks. I am still dreaming of our amazing villa in Greece (you can see a few photos here) but right now I’m back in full on work mode, which is taking my mind off missing the sunshine. I’m trying to figure out when I can use up the many holiday days I seem to have saved up (not a bad thing!) and dreaming about all these Friday’s that I could take off. I think I prefer a long weekend starting from Friday – or do you prefer a weekend that extends into Monday? I think it sometimes throws me off for the rest of the week.

Do you end up with loads of holiday to take at the end of the year?
Have you tried this amazing cake hack?!

All photos taken with my iPhone.

      Thank you! The giant tub is so good – it’s lasted me over a week, and it was only £4.99!
