Happy Sunday

I appear to have neglected Happy Sunday for a few weeks. This is entirely unintentional, time has just been sprinting away from me at a speed so impressive that I haven’t even attempted to claw it back. That happens in the summer, the days get longer but fill up so much quicker. I like it that way. As is to be expected from such a long absence, the things I need to tell you about have been stacking up like a pile of dirty dishes. So this is something of a bumper issue. Again, I like it that way. Let’s get on with it, shall we? It doesn’t get much more Brighton than vegan craft beer, and last week I had the pleasure of chugging a few bottles of the stuff on the beach of all places. This was an introduction to new-to-me brewery, Goose Island (available at beerhawk.co.uk). Goose Island are making top quality craft beer all the way out in Chicago. My favourite of the bottles I tried was Sofie, but it was …

Happy Sunday

I’m feeling a little better today at the tail end of a weekend involving enough physical activity to rid me of the cabin fever that last weeks rain spell brought with it. Thank you to everybody that checked in on me after my midweek misery, I’m ever so slightly off kilter at the moment but getting to the bottom of it. Aaaaanywho, my low key rainy disposition hasn’t stopped me from eating and cooking all kinds of things that you need to know about, so Happy Sunday is back in action. It was National Vegetarian Week this week. I could have taken this as a great opportunity to throw myself into more plant based eating with gusto but I didn’t. I am, however, going off meat a little bit again. So we could be about to witness a u-turn of the carnivorous themes that have been running through the blog for the past almost-year. Watch this space.. Tom and I have been meaning to try Sprinkles for.. ever. It’s a new – I say new, …

Happy Sunday

A quick glance at my camera roll from the last seven days tells me that I have almost literally nothing to show for myself this week. It appears to have been incredibly mundane, which is most unlike me. This is, in part, due to my spending as much of my spare time as I possibly can studying for my TEFL qualification. This is proving to be every bit as difficult as I expected it to, and if/when I finish it I’ll be glad to see the back of studying. It’s not fun for ordinary brains, and it’s even less of a picnic for my slightly-impaired-in-the-focus-department ADHD one. Perhaps I’ll feel differently when I finish, and suddenly have a desire to fill my life with short courses through the Open University, but it feels unlikely from where I’m sitting now. However, Fringe Festival season is upon us and I’m sure that’ll have me spending more time doing fun things than I probably should, making for a more exciting Happy Sunday next week. I’m slightly heartbroken because …
