A Week in Pictures – 18th Jan 16

Each week of the year seems to be getting better, little by little. Again, last week started off a bit like meh. But it picked up a lot quicker than the previous week. This was more than likely to do with cocktails and lots of food #dontjudge but who cares if it makes you happy? Screw a January detox, right now it’s carbs and alcohol making me feel better and I’m not afraid to say it!

Burgers and Cocktails at Benson & Blakes in Bury St Edmunds.

Now, I may have been slightly too eager to eat my burger, so I didn’t get chance to take a pic of it *my bad*, but I did manage to snap the delish cocktails I had. Berry Hard and Double Hard. 2 for £8? Can’t complain! Then Peanut butter cheesecake for dessert, which I definitely didn’t need…



Work Nandos.

Healthy salad or boring sandwich for lunch at work? NOPE. Not when you’ve got a Nandos literally next door. Gave into temptation AGAIN this week *sigh*


My Last Night House Sitting.

I blogged about this last Friday as it was last full day and night of house sitting my friends house. I enjoyed it by having a large glass of wine and just making the most of the freedom. It’s back to reality and already I’m craving my own space again. Get me moved out!


Pizza Express Date Night.

Peter and I had a cute little food and cinema date night on Saturday. Pizza Express followed by watching The Revenant. With house sitting we didn’t get chance to have an evening out just the two of us for over 2 weeks so it was just what we needed. And anyone even considering going to watch The Revenant – DO IT. It’s soo good and grips you from the very start. Such a must see.

Sunday Afternoon Baking.

Okay, so we may have burnt these a little so they don’t quite look as pretty as they’re meant to, but I was still majorly impressed. Of course Peter did most of the work because let’s face it -I am no domestic goddess, but I did do my fair share and think they look pretty cute if I do say so myself. They’re apple and cinnamon pastry roses that we had seen on the Tasty Facebook page, and they were bloody tasty covered in custard.
