My Week In Pictures

I didn't plan on getting up till 10am, but was up after 9am. I had breakfast and a quick shower and once I was ready, I had some errands to run in town. When I got back, I had some washing up and laundry to sort out, and then I had my lunch. We also sampled the Sweater Weather peanut butter brittle ground coffee we picked up in TK Maxx on Sunday, but weren't overly impressed with it. I think I'd rather find a really good ground coffee and add my own syrups to it. I had some emails to respond to and some online shopping to attend to (all essentials, I promise!), then I cocooned myself in bed, with the electric blanket on, before 4pm to watch Call The Midwife, smother my hands in organic shea butter and eat some chocolate - life goals accomplished, right?
I also made a start on a new blog design, before trying to decide what to whip up for dinner. I decided to make a light basil pesto dish with garlic, spring onion, chopped tomatoes and chives, garnished with rocket and served with a warm, crusty roll. We watched The Bourne Identity and an episode of Supernatural.

I had a lie in on Tuesday, had homemade granola with fresh strawberries and organic vanilla yoghurt for breakfast, a long shower and then had to pop into town early afternoon. I had cream of tomato soup with onion batons for a late lunch and watched some TV. I did some blogging and we had a late snacky tea. We watched Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Get Santa before bed and ate some Green & Black's ice-cream, although I'm not too keen on this variety. I finished reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban before I went to sleep! It's great re-reading the Harry Potter series!

I was up at 9am on Wednesday and had lots of boring housework to do, so that's what I did until around 1pm, when I then sat down for some lunch. I made myself a Mexican cheese toastie with organic sliced tomatoes and a sprinkle of rocket on top and watched part 2 of Silent Witness. I browsed online for a while, then watched The Good Wife. We had homemade lasagne for dinner with salad, then watched Misery and an episode of Gotham.

After breakfast and showering e.t.c., it was a lovely and bright day, so I took the opportunity to snap a few blog photos. At 2pm, I went to meet my friend after finishing work and we went for an hour's walk along the trailway to catch up. I wore my new, fluffy parka, which is just gorgeous and really cosy! We went back to mine for a coffee to warm us up, as it was quite chilly outside.
At around 6:15pm, Dean and I left to collect a couple of friends and make our way to Dorchester. We met a couple more friends there and dined at Zizzi; it was Dean and I's first time eating there and while the food was really good, our mains took such a long time to arrive that we couldn't have dessert and had to rush off to the cinema as soon as we'd finished eating - they did apologise and offer free coffees, but we couldn't even accept them as we'd have been late for our film! Luckily, I had some salted caramel popcorn with me! We watched The Revenant at the cinema and got home just after midnight!

I always hope to have a lie in on Friday morning, because I start back at work on a Friday night, so could do with the extra sleep. But, I always get woken up by the bin men at around 8:30pm and then all I hear is noisy neighbours with their noisy children outside! Oh, and dogs barking, of course. Anyway, I had a quick shower and tidy up when I got up, as I was expecting the estate agent round at midday to carry out a property inspection, which is done at least every six months, much to my dismay. Well, they didn't turn up (same as last Friday!) in the end, which is really annoying. So, I spent most of my day watching TV and editing blog posts. We had enchiladas for dinner and watched Wolf Of Wall Street. It was back to work for me at midnight and we had an awful shift!

What did you get up to during the week?


  1. I love your coat!!! I really need to get myself a trusty Parka and I love all the fur too!

    1. Thanks, Jodie! I'm completely in love with it! I've been waiting years to find the perfect parka and am so glad I found this one. :) xxx

  2. Your post has totally given me food envy! Can you come cook for me? : p

    I love that you mention work, too. With full time work and part time study, I only have a small amount of time to dedicate to blogging and other hobbies so it's nice to see a fellow blogger mention the unglamorous world of work in a post! : )

    1. Haha, thanks, Michelle! Yes, my work life is anything but glamorous, I can assure you! I am lucky in the fact that I work an alternate weekly basis, so blogging always gets my full attention. :) xxx

  3. I know I’ve said this before but I look forward to this post series and your food photography is always so on point. I feel hungry looking at them he he! So jealous you saw the The Revenant as I wanted to see that, did you enjoy it? I haven’t seen Wolf Of Wall Street yet but might watch it on DVD sometime. I have a bit of a thing for Leonardo DiCaprio as he’s gorgeous! You are looking very funky in your outfit, that parka would be perfect for the cold weather we have been having. Sounds like you had a nice week and lovely post! :-) xx

    1. Aww, thank you, Helen! :) I do often hesitate publishing some weeks as they seem pretty boring, haha. The Revenant was absolutely breath-taking! I would highly recommend seeing it. My January at a glance post will have a mini review of it. Leonardo DiCaprio is gorgeous, I completely agree! I love my new parka and the faux fur is detachable, making it wearable through most of the seasons. :) xxx

  4. Those foood. Now I'm hungryy. Plus, I love how you eat organic food, thumbs up for you girl!
    Love, Fads
