My Week In Pictures

On Monday, I had a lie in till 10:30am. I had chocolate chip pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast, although due to ASDA's poor packaging, they were all stuck together! After I'd showered and got myself ready, we went out for a midday countryside walk along the trailway for some fresh air. It also gave me the opportunity to try out my new camera. It was lovely seeing two calves feeding from their mother. It was also lovely to capture these vibrant, pink wildflowers growing amongst the bare trees and fallen leaves.
After admiring my blooming carnations, we had a late lunch, which was an experiment by my husband - oven-baked cheesy eggs on toast. Not bad, not bad. In the late afternoon, I had some red velvet coffee with Riverford's almond cantuccini* and a marzipan stollen bite... or two. I got some blogging done, plus I finally cleared my BlogLovin' feed! I read lots of blog posts and left many comments. We had an easy dinner of pizza. We watched the latest South Park episode and the latest Modern Family episode, then I got cosy in bed with the electric blanket on and watched one episode of Ghost Adventures. I then picked up the book I'd been (slowly) reading recently, then put it back down when I spotted the new book I'd purchased last week. I read it until 2am! I'm really hooked and eager to keep reading! I've decided that life is too short to read books that I'm not fully enjoying!

I was up at 9:30am on Tuesday. After a quick breakfast and shower, I waited for Dean to get ready before we headed out into the wind and rain to drive to Yeovil for the day. We popped into a few shops, bought ourselves a printer, treated ourselves to a hot drink from Starbucks and lunched at Frankie & Benny's, then headed home. I had to face a stack of dirty dishes when we got back - one of my least favourite chores! I then got comfy on the sofa, catching up on some blogging, listening to the howling wind. Green & Black's kept me happy! After drafting some blog posts, I watched a Ghost Adventures episode while Dean played on the XBOX 360 and then we watched the latest The Walking Dead episode together - we love this show! I read my new book for a while before going to sleep.

I woke around 9:30am, but stayed in bed reading for a while! I had no motivation to shower, so I had cereal, a glass of water and a fruity green tea, while doing some blogging. Dean randomly decided to do some painting of the hall and spare room, finishing up the leftover paint from when my Dad did some last month. While Dean did that, I managed to get all of the Christmas gifts I'd bought wrapped. In the evening we watched Thinner (a Stephen King story), then I read in bed for a while.

On Thursday, I didn't get up till about 10:30am! I set up up my grateful giveaway and had a long shower. I did some housework and blogging and got picked up at 4:40pm by a friend and we went off to the cinema to watch Suffragette! We both really enjoyed the film. I got home after 8pm and as Dean had a friend round, watching a film, I took myself off to the bedroom, put the electric blanket on and settled down to watch some Ghost Adventures!

I got up at 8am, had a quick breakfast and shower and got myself ready. We left for Street, Somerset at around 9:45am and made our way to Clarks Shopping Village. It was looking nice and festive and we picked up a few bits - not much, really, as most things are still pretty expensive! We had a light lunch in Subway and got a nice hot drink from The Cornish Bakery - I opted for a mint hot chocolate, while Dean went for a butterscotch steamer. We left around 2:45pm and headed home. It rained a lot on the way back, but we saw a double rainbow! When we got home, I'd had a parcel delivery of Christmas gifts from M&S, so I wrapped all the gifts immediately. I sat down to do some blogging before preparing dinner. After dinner, I decided I needed a long, hot bath and took the opportunity to read some more of my book. We watched The Drop and then went to bed.

What have you guys been up to this week?
