Life Lately: Food, Food, Food

Somehow, I’ve only just discovered puff pastry which is my new favourite thing EVER, here i used it to make a chorizo, red pepper and mozzarella pizza….AMAZING but very naughty churros with dulce de leche….my first ever Greek meze from Andreas on Charlotte Street….the sun setting over our road….House of Parliament from a Bateaux boat cruise….Samarkand from Mavala’s summer Chilli and Spice Collection which I’ve been loving (currently gracing my toe nails)….Callum’s very different aspirations for his life….my very tired flip flops which have travelled the world with me…..Callum and Kristian looking out enjoying the views of the countryside….

Catching some rays while reading The Millenium Trilogy….The view from Frank’s in Peckham (well worth a visit if it’s warm….Wearing a little girl dress and little girl shoes….Ready for some barbecue!….Homemade no-bake cheescake which unfortunately didn’t taste as good as it looked….the bbq is going….Kristian about to have his first taste of trapeze as his surprise birthday present thanks to Gorilla Circus….Camel racing at Lambeth Country Show…..painting in the garden to try and fill our bare walls….

Could this summer get any better?! The weather has been so beautiful….how have you been spending the warm days?

Life Lately: The Sanderson and Whipsnade Zoo

image

Had a bit of a busy weekend last weekend out in the sun and these are some of my snaps from my phone.

The top row is the Mad Hatters Afternoon tea at The Sanderson Hotel. Then there are some pictures of London in the sun and then Whipsnade Zoo.

How have you been making the most of this beautiful weather?

Life lately: Easter bank holiday weekend

image

The view out the window from where we were staying in Portishead….three views from the beach…..a ridiculous photo of me in my new glasses (I CAN SEE AGAIN….IT’S A MIRACLE!)….over the bridge and over into Wales….walking up Sugarloaf hill in the Brecon Beacons….the most impractical boots to walk up a snowy hill in….refreshment break!

I had the most unbelievably chilled out Easter bank holiday. I feel like all I did was sleep and watch films! Oh yeah and a little trip to Portishead/Wales so should probably add driving/being in the car to the list. Sometimes it’s just good to chill out you know?

Hope you had a good one? Leave me links below of what you got up to…

Life Lately: Making the most of it!

image

We popped along to the Natural History Museum to catch the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition (well worth visiting as ever, see my post on last year’s here)….The flags from a meal at Wahaca with the girls, can’t wait to go again soon for a friend’s birthday celebrations – such tasty food!….Finally made it to the Hollywood Costume exhibition at the V&A, go check it out before it finishes on the 27th Jan….Our silly kitty being crazy as ever….My new favourite CD (I’m not even ashamed to admit it!)….Dressed up for the cold with the boy in winter boots….A sweet but savoury heart shaped snack….AMAZING gingerbread cupcake from work….Testing out my culinary skills by cooking a roast….

Time just seems to pass far too quickly these days, so I’m resolved to making the most out of everything! These are just some snippets of what I’ve been up to lately. I seem to be failing at my resolve to take more photos this year unfortunately as some of these date back to just before Christmas. What have you been up to lately?

January is such a funny month…I’m currently on countdown for a trip to Budapest at the end of the month – can’t wait!!
