Photos of the Week #11

March 16, 2015

WEEK 11 OF 52

Last week began slowly. A dentist appointment. A couple of photoshoots for work. Drinks with friends. I was waiting for the weekend with eager patience – the kind of week when you know how long your to-do list is so you don’t want the days to go too quickly, but at the same time you know what you have to look forward to and that kind of takes precedence over the lists. Here are a few photos from last week.

^^WEDNESDAY. Trout took me out for a Tortilla date at lunch time, so we had a fairly light dinner in the evening.^^

^^THURSDAY. Curled up on the sofa with Ras. It kind of looks like I’m breastfeeding, but it’s just so cute! I love when Ras picks me to snuggle up with.^^

^^SATURDAY. I tried this orange choc chip protein bar for the first time, and it’s so good! I haven’t had any of Pulsin’s bars for so long, definitely need to stock up. Shortly after I ate this I had to go to the dentist to have a filling replaced. It was just as bad as I remember :(^^

^^SATURDAY. In the evening we had friends round for dinner, and thankfully my mouth had ‘defrosted‘ from the injection and I could eat a bit of dinner. We made a few bits and pieces from a recipe book that Trout bought me called Veggiestan. Everything tasted so good, and it was a lovely evening.^^

Sunday morning began with a brunch date with friends at our house, but I didn’t snap a picture which is a shame. We had cinnamon buns, croissants, crumpets, good juice and coffee. It was such a lovely start to the day!

^^SUNDAY. This is fast becoming one of my favourite photos in the world. It is just too cute for words. We had Trout’s family round for dinner on Mother’s Day and recruited his two nieces as sous chefs. Jasmine helped me grate the tomatoes for the pa amb tomaquet and Sophia helped pour the oil in. They both helped ice the cake and were so attentive as Trout made the pesto. I loved seeing them learn how to make each dish and have a go themselves. Even Ras was learning some new tricks!^^

It was one of those weekends when you need a weekend to recover from the weekend! I wouldn’t change it for anything though. Finally, here’s a round-up of things I’ve been thinking, eating, doing and planning.

EAT. Good food with friends and family.//Baked cheesecake.//
MOVE. Oops, forgot to plank. Must remember to plank this week. Must must must.//
WEAR. Pink lipstick.//Nail polish.//
LOVE. Mary Portas.//Betty Crocker cake mix + can of coke = cake.//
LINK. These beautiful photographs and words about the fragility of flowers.//I veganised this recipe for baked blueberry cheesecake, and it’s one of my favourite sweet treats.//Catching up with Say Yes. I’ve had it bookmarked in my Lifestyle Blogs folder for a long time, and completely forgotten about it. It’s such a treat.//
LAST WEEK. Thinking about how lucky I am (*vom*).//Appreciating brilliant vegan cosmetics.//
THIS WEEK. Trying to keep my kitchen tidy. Two dinner parties and a brunch party left my kitchen looking like a bomb had hit it, and fingers wrinkly from washing up.//I’ve started listening to Invisibilia, recommended to me by a reader. The first episode is really interesting – focused on internal thoughts, and how seriously you should take them. I would say that my weirdest internal thought is, What would it feel like to…. Like I think, What would it feel like to be hit by a car? Like, hit pretty bad. Not fatal, just pretty bad. Weird, huh? Well, as it turns out, some people have far weirder thoughts. We all have them. And most of them are nonsense. Give it a listen.//

      I know!! I thought it might just be me being bias, but everyone else seems to agree.

    I need to try those new Pulsin’ bars. They do sound yummy!
