Photos of the Week #30 + #31

August 4, 2015

WEEK 30 + 31 OF 52

Week 30 was a blur of finishing up projects and getting everything ready for my best friend’s hen party. In fact I think I was so wrapped up in everything that I forgot to take any other photos! We travelled to (what felt like) the middle of nowhere to spend the weekend in a yert, in a field, in the pissing rain. Stupid rain. It was so much fun, though – the rain did not get the better of us! Even if I did forget my wellies…

Decorated yert

^^We arrived early to decorate the yet before the bride-to-be arrived. It was so much fun to look through all of these old photos of us all together!^^

Bride-to-be

^^The beautiful bride-to-be.^^

Archery

^^Archery! Thankfully the weather was fantastic on the Saturday, so we could enjoy a lesson.^^

Vicky and dog

^^The couple running the class had this awesome dog. He was so happy and full of love!^^

Vegan afternoon cream tea

^^Vegan afternoon cream tea! The hosts were amazing, and put on this brilliant spread for me and two other dairy-frees.^^

Vegan cream tea

^^Scones, carrot cake, chocolate brownie times one hundred.^^

Me and Rasputin the cat

^^As much fun as it was, you can’t beat getting home to this face. After a very wet weekend, it was beyond blissful to hop straight into a hot bath, before getting into my pyjamas and chilling out with Ras.^^

^^This rice was so good! I fried up onion and garlic, then tossed in a bunch of spices and slices of almonds, threw a few raisins into a pan of boiling water with the rice, then drained it and added to the onion mix. Yum! A little sweet thanks to the cinnamon and raisins, with a hint of curry from the ground coriander and cumin. Will definitely be making this again.^^

^^I’ve really been enjoying cooking since I got back. I don’t know whether it’s because I couldn’t cook while we were away, but I’ve been doing a bit (but not too much) more than usual. I broke away from my ‘assembling’ style of cooking…!^^

^^I was getting on with some freelance work on Saturday afternoon, and the procrastination kind of went to another level. I had a few hours free, and I just couldn’t find the motivation to get the work done in the couple of hours it should have taken! This tub of icing did not really help. It also didn’t really help when I tried on my bridesmaids dress later in the evening… No more icing for me until after the wedding. Actually, after our holidays in September. OK I probably just shouldn’t be eating icing out of the tub…^^

^^This guuuuuy! I was lounging around on Sunday afternoon before hot yoga, when Ras jumped into my lap and nearly made me late. He can be beyond cute sometimes.^^

    Those banners are so cute! I love archery. I haven’t done it in a long time, but I always enjoy it when I do. Ras looks like he’s plotting something in that last picture

      I can’t say I fell in love with archery, but it was a really fun afternoon! Ras is always plotting something – usually how to trick you into giving him a second breakfast…

    Afternoon tea, archery and a yurt sound like ingredients for a great hen do!
