Photos of the Week #13 and #14

April 8, 2015

WEEKS 13 + 14 OF 52

It’s been a bit quiet over here, hasn’t it! I’ve been so busy I’ve barely even switched on my laptop. Between tying up loose ends at work, organising Trout’s 30th birthday and enjoying the long Easter break, it’s been a bit mad. I’ve rolled the last couple of weeks into one, and here’s what I’ve been up to.

^^Tasting our way around vegan ‘prawn’ crackers. All so good! I think the thai spiced crackers from Tesco might be my favourite, though.^^

^^Hanging out with Ras in the morning, before I get ready for work.^^

^^VEGFEST!! It was so much fun. I discovered so many new brands, like this vegan cheese company – Tyne Chease.^^

^^Cocoafeliz at VegFest. I was actually quite disappointed, though – we bought a box of 12 chocolates and they didn’t have that much flavour or enough sweetness.^^

^^We were so inspired by the cheese, we had a wine + cheese evening with my sister and friends when we got back.^^


^^The next morning we went to a friend’s house for brunch, and I got to hang out with this cutey. She loves playing ‘fetch’, and rubbing her face against her ball!^^

^^Brunch! Including chocolate twists bought from VegFest, and Jus-Rol croissants.^^

^^Vegan egg mayo and coleslaw, also bought from VegFest.^^

^^Napping with these guys. No better way to spend a Sunday afternoon.^^

^^Ferrero Rocher cupcake from Ms Cupcake. Yes, another goodie bought at VegFest. And yes, that dent would be from where I dropped my phone.^^

^^A Spanish feast! Trout made paella, and we had bread dipped in oil and balsamic, or rubbed with ripe tomatoes and drizzled with oil and a sprinkling of salt, olives and those amazing peppers that are like playing pepper roulette – you don’t know which one will be spicy!^^

^^Trout’s birthday cake! Chocolate cake with vanilla frosting, topped with caramel and popcorn. I’ll be sharing more photos from his birthday in another blog post.^^

^^A morning spent on a steam train, on Easter Monday.^^

^^An afternoon spent in the garden, watching Ras explore his new territory.^^

EAT. Cake! Easter eggs, the best pizza ever in Bristol, roast dinner.//
MOVE. A heck of a lot of walking around Bristol, and flyboarding!//
WEAR. Nothing super special – am hoping to be digging out more summery clothes very soon. I’ll be happy just wearing spring jackets, to be honest.//
LOVE. Having time in the evening to write. Trout’s been getting back late from work, which isn’t nice as I don’t get to spend as much time with him, but it does mean I can spend time on my blog, which is nice.//Having time to read. I’m on my third book in three months thanks to commuting, and I’m loving this time to read on my way to and from work.//Celebrating Trout’s 30th.//
LINK. This blog post on how to recover from an unproductive day. I am terrible at feeling like poop when I haven’t done enough (although more often than not I’ve still filled my day with so many things – just not ‘enough’ things for my brain to feel satisfied).//This recipe for dark chocolate orange tart from Maple Spice.//This blog from Dainty Squid on blogging being a real job. It’s not the case for me personally, but I still found it interesting.//This guest blog post that I wrote on the Tech4Good Awards for Go ON UK.//
LAST WEEK(S). Hanging out in Bristol.//Stressing that the plans I’d made wouldn’t work out!//Enjoying the beautiful sunshine at the weekend.//Reading Jack Kerouac’s On The Road, which I’m ashamed to say was gifted to me by a sweet friend in the summer of 2012 for a road trip me and Trout took… Better late than never, right?!//
THIS WEEK. Eagerly awaiting the promised 20c weather, and hoping to spend as much time as possible outside.//BBQ, please!//Truck racing at Brands Hatch.//

    Woo lots of delish food! Sounds like you had a good couple of weeks. I finally started reading again when I started commuting – it is the best excuse and now I’m not commuting as much I’m trying to keep up the motivation!! xx

      It’s so hard to keep up that motivation. I find when I’m at home I get distracted so easily – even at coffee shops I still pull my phone out!

    So much delicious food! Your posts are always so pretty and positive, I love it!
