Photos of the Week #41

October 13, 2014

WEEK 41 OF 52

Before we get started, I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that Liked, commented and tweeted about yesterday’s post. I was completely taken aback by everyone’s kindness, and totally unprepared for it. I was fully expecting a mixture of positive and negative feedback (and hoping that the negative wasn’t too harsh!), but it was quite the opposite. Wow. So yeah, thank you everyone. Now, onto last week’s photos.//


On Saturday evening Trout and I went to the Dome to see Dave Gorman. We’ve seen him live before and he is absolutely hilarious! I had tears rolling down my cheeks I was laughing so hard. Plus, the Dome is one of my favourite venues – it’s so beautiful and has so much history. We arrived a little early, after stuffing our faces at Bombay Aloo, and found a secluded part of the balcony upstairs. It felt like a really lovely, private moment, and we mostly talked about a house that we had viewed that morning. It was really nice, and we have some decisions to make over whether we’ll put an offer in, but I’m very excited to say the least.//


On Friday evening we celebrated a friend’s 30th birthday at a lovely pub (well, lovely now – it never used to be!) and Bruce, their dog, joined us, too. He’s such a cutey! I went wild and had two small glasses of red wine, and we shared some salty cashews, and then on our way home we picked up a falafel wrap and some chips, and boy did I wake up with a sore head the next morning! A total dehydration headache. Kind of worth it, though. And plus it made me smile like Wallace, which was weird (see photo below).//After we came back from Dave Gorman we sat in bed, Trout catching up with F1 and me catching up with Take a Break, and we shared the last couple of white chocolate chip cookies that I’d made the day before. It was a lovely way to end a pretty darn good day.//


In other unhealthy news…


…Waitrose have started stocking Almond Dream ice-cream!!! So far I’ve tried the salted caramel and the praline crunch, both of which are amazing. I hope they make a cookie dough flavour, that would be awesome.//On Monday I met Trout for a little burger date at lunch time. We went to VBites and I ordered one of my favourite meals in Brighton; the hickory chick burger. It’s incredible! As are the sweet potato fries.//


Candles kept me company while I finished up some freelance work on Friday.//Katsu curry on Thursday evening. I LOVE katsu curry!//

Rasputin was full of love for Trout.//


Rasputin’s pants dungeon. Trout said, “I like what you’ve done with the place”, and I couldn’t stop laughing.//Ras stealing Trout’s chair as soon as he gets up. It’s hilarious that he fully implements the three-second rule.//

And finally, Sunday’s roast dinner. It was the perfect day for a roast; it rained all afternoon and evening, it was so cold and dark. I always feel so satisfied making a roast dinner! We bought one of VBites’ celebration roasts from Holland and Barrett (it includes slices of ‘turkey’, pigs-in-blankets and an awesome gravy) and I made stuffing, roast potatoes, roasted parsnips, broccoli, sprouts, mashed swede and carrots. Yum!//

So that was last week! Plenty of food and Rasputin, as per usual. I can’t believe this weather! It’s a shame; I wish we had proper autumn’s here in the UK. With blue skies and crisp cold, not wet rain all the live long day. This week includes loads of exciting things to look forward to. It’s the start of The Apprentice tomorrow! Who’s excited? I’m also having dinner with Lucie tomorrow, and really hoping I don’t turn up looking like a drowned rat. On Thursday Trout and I are going to see David O’Doherty as part of the Brighton Comedy Festival, and Friday I have a day off work! Perfect. Saturday we’re going to see War Horse in London, and then visiting one of his uncle’s on Sunday. Busy busy!//

What do you have planned for the weekend?
Are you a fan of The Apprentice?
