Photos of the Week #12

March 23, 2015

WEEK 12 OF 52

^^WEDNESDAY. Ras, implementing the three second rule as per usual.^^

^^THURSDAY. I used my home-grown coriander for the first time. I can’t believe I’ve actually managed to grow something from seed to herb! It tasted really good.^^

^^THURSDAY. I cooked! Well, I cooked half a meal. We used up the rest of a takeaway for dinner, and I made some spiced butternut squash and lime and coriander rice to go with it.^^

^^FRIDAY. Party tea! Is there any better kind of dinner? Trout and I went to my Mum & Dad’s for the evening and my sister put together this little dinner. Yum.^^

^^SUNDAY. I organised a bloggers event for one of my clients, which is one of my favourite parts of my job. Because I understand both sides of working with brands I always try to make sure the people I invite have a great time, and get all the information that they need for the campaign. I was really happy with how it went, even though it was a stress and a half getting there. It was rail replacement buses to Brighton, and the first bus I was on had a tyre burst en route. The next bus was late, and the traffic getting into Brighton was just awful. Nothing quite like running through town to wake you up! Luckily I know short cuts and quiet roads.^^

^^SUNDAY. I spent the evening trying to do a bit more around the house, including cleaning these drawers in our bedroom so that I could fill them with jumpers and trousers and tops and everything that was previously all over the house. Ras was being super helpful ;)^^

So, that was last week! The weekend seemed to last for ages, which was exactly what I needed. Between seeing my family, spending Saturday night at home with Trout (an evening that felt like the first in such a long time), and spending Sunday in Brighton working and then baking white chocolate chip cookies, tidying the flat and Skyping with Laia, it was a pretty darn good weekend. What did you get up to?

EAT. Plenty of takeaways ;)//White chocolate chip cookies. Heaven in a cookie.//
MOVE. Running through Brighton…!//
WEAR. Shoes that are falling apart. I reaalllyy need some new trainers.//
LOVE. Spending time with family.//Listening to Ras purrr so loudly next to me. I think it’s just because he wants me to feed him, but I’ll take it.//
LINK. I haven’t even had a chance to read any blogs this week! Send me links in the comments?//
LAST WEEK. Getting my haircut on stage for £10! On Saturday my sister, Mum and I went to a wellbeing fayre where my parents live, and it was amazing. I was a bit skeptical before we arrived (I had images of hippies and hemp and crystals) but there was only one table with crystals and the rest of it felt like a giant spa. There were so many creams and oils to try, different types of massage available, and organic lovely products to buy. One of the ladies was a hairdresser selling her range of products and offering haircuts – I was desperate for a trim, so it was perfect timing for me! I also had a hot rock massage, which was amazing. It was such a fun, girly morning.//
THIS WEEK. Looking forward to VegFest on Saturday! Highlight of my year. Followed by a girly sleepover with my sister, and probably more sweets than you can count.//The clocks going forward! Light evenings! The countdown to summer! I can’t wait.//

    Aw such a cute kitty! The wellbeing fair sounds really cool – can’t go wrong with a bargain hair cut really! I finally got mine cut last week – I ran a charity raffle during Feb and one of the hairdressers donated a cut and a half price cut for the organiser, so had to take advantage of that! Im so excited for daylight savings too, the sun is coming back!! x

      Ooh bargain haircut indeed. My hair can’t take any kind of style, it’s too fine, so all I ever need is a trim and don’t see the point in paying someone £40+ to get rid of the split ends!

    Can I just say that your photos have improved over the year or two that I’ve been reading your blog? They weren’t bad before or anything, they’ve just gotten even better. And I always love a good picture of Ras.

      Aww thank you so much!! I’ve become so lazy since I got my iPhone though, really need to dig out the proper camera more often…
