Photos of the Week #15

April 16, 2015

WEEK 15 OF 52

^^Spring has sprung! This isn’t my flowerbed but my garden is blossoming and for that I am so thankful to our home’s previous owners, who were more green fingered than I’ll ever be. I spy roses and Trout has spotted bluebells and I’m so excited for the rest of the garden to bloom! These flowers have been planted by the council near our house, and they are so beautiful. It’s such a lovely sight to and from work.^^

^^Friday night, and our first dinner outside in the garden. It was the perfect end to a short-but-long week. You know those weeks when it doesn’t matter if it’s three-or-one-or-five days, it’s still long and stressful and tiring? It was one of those for me. I was just happy to have made the train home with seconds to spare, only to find that Trout was on the same train with curry in hand and spring plans in mind. It was so nice to eat at our new table and chairs, with Ras playing the garden behind us.^^

^^Whiskerface’s bunny legs. Such a cutey.^^

^^Our first BBQ of the year! We invited a few friends round to enjoy the April sunshine and some good food. We were a little too excited and may have expected it to be warmer, but with the right jumpers on it was fine, and so nice to eat outside together.^^

^^Yum! We had burgers, sausages, mushrooms, sweetcorn (YUCK), ‘chicken’ kebabs, potato salad, coleslaw, salad, crisps and hummus.^^

^^On Sunday we went to watch some racing at Brands Hatch. We bought tickets for a friend’s birthday and I went along because I love going to watch banger racing so thought I might like this, too. And I did! It was so much fun.^^

^^I mainly went for the truck racing…^^

^^The legends cars were awesome, too! In every race we picked out our favourite drivers at the beginning and followed them throughout the day. #65 was mine (Orange is the New Black fan right here!) and when we did the pit walk I had to have my photo taken with him.^^

^^Getting to see them all waiting to go out was pretty cool^^

^^This car was being worked on until the very last second. They shouted for everyone to move out the way, bump started it and somehow it made it to the grid in time, and the engine started for the race.^^

^^They also had a monster truck ride! This was amazing. I could have done this ten times over.^^

^^With sunburnt faces we sat and ate ice-cream cones when we got home.^^

^^Salted caramel Almond Dream ice-cream in a chocolate topped cone. Perfect.^^

EAT. BBQ food! One of the best kinds of food.//More salads – it’s finally the weather for it!//
MOVE. Considering going for a run now that it’s light when I come home from work. Still considering this.//
WEAR. Spring jackets!//Blush Pink lipstick from M&S.//Purple pumps.//
LOVE. Getting back into my personal Twitter account. I spend all day running six client’s accounts, so I have very little time or energy or enthusiasm to even look at my own – but I’m really enjoying spending time on it lately.//Discovering new blogs, like Reading my Tea Leaves.//Hanging out with Ras in the garden after work.//
LINKS. What to do when people don’t believe in you. I think everyone can relate to this on some level – for me, it was when I made the decision to move from London to Brighton. There were a few people who thought I was crazy and tried to make me question whether it was a good idea or just downright stupid. I knew in my heart it was the right thing to do though, and you should always listen to your heart over anything else – if it doesn’t work out, at least you know you made the right decision for you, not for anyone else. And that’s all that matters.//An article on résumé virtues vs eulogy virtues, shared on Meg Fee’s blog.//
LAST WEEK. Our first BBQ of the year!//Getting on top of my to-do list (probably going to regret saying that…)//
THIS WEEK. Looking forward to a Saturday to myself. Trout’s having a day with friends and I’ve got big plans to do absolutely nothing aside from relax, catch up on Made in Chelsea, clean the house and indulge in some ‘me-time‘.//I might splash out on a cafetiere and a few bags of ground coffee. We have it all day every day at work, and now instant coffee really isn’t cutting it anymore.//
