Happy Sunday

At the beginning of this week, it really felt as though spring was upon us. The air was fresh and warm, the sun was beating down and blossom was blooming all over the place. Unfortunately, these past few days have been telling a different story and here I am, holed up in my bedroom listening to the howling wind and wrapping my dressing gown as tightly around my shivering body as I can. England is strange. Change is in the air, though. Today, I went to view a room in a flat in Hove and under an hour after I walked out the door, I was offered it. Here’s to new beginnings and the excitement and clarity that a new phase of life brings. Wish me luck. I really don’t have much to show you this week at all. I feel like I’ve been more than busy enough to have plenty to talk about with you but as I search through my camera roll for evidence of such business there’s little to none. The highlight of my …

Happy Sunday

I’ve had the kind of slow and sleepy weekend that is best reserved for this time of year. Getting in extra hours of sleep at the tail end of winter before the long days and endless socialising of the spring and summer months. It’s finally nearing the end of the hibernation period, and while I really can’t wait for it to be over, I’ll cherish these last few weekends of stillness all the same. I managed to watch three movies in the last 48 hours (potentially a record for me, I’m very terrible at sitting down for that long).

I’ve been promised a trip to Mile Oak farm next weekend so I’ll have some more exciting snaps for you next Sunday, for now here’s a picture I took of Tom yesterday that perfectly encapsulates the chill level of our Saturday. …

Happy Sunday

Before we even begin to talk about the past week, you need to hear about my Sunday dinner. I’m aiming at the moment for meals that are both frugal and filling, and this ticks both boxes so beautifully, with the added bonus of tasting absolutely gorgeous. I cooked butter beans in chicken stock until thickened, then added yoghurt right at the end for a creamy finish, resulting in a really filling and decadent side to roast chicken thighs, mashed potato and spring greens. God, it was good. Look out for spring greens in the supermarket at the moment, you get loads for filthy dirty cheap and they’re really good for you. I had another lovely weekend. After finally seeing out the dreadful lurgy I’d fallen foul to, it was nice to be up and about and not dripping from my face all day. This meant that, despite it being nowhere near warm enough yet, Tom and I were able to sit on the beach and share a bottle of Prosecco. This one is from ALDI, …
