Sunday Catch-up #19

This has been a week of two halves; at work things have been pretty full on as we gear up for exams next week but this weekend has involved a spa day with my besties followed by a Chinese and birthday cake which reset the balance nicely! It has made me decide to treat myself to a facial or massage a bit more often as I just love being pampered.

I dropped my friend Lucie back at the train station in Bath this morning and instead of heading home to catch up on some work, I found myself on a mammoth spending spree…I’m talking hair products, foundations, nail varnish, shoes, beauty products and more so expect a haul post very soon!

This week I have been…

Making: an effort to start using up some of my beauty products (to make room for more!)

Going: to vote! Sadly, we didn’t have the result I hoped for but I feel satisfied knowing I did my part and feel my voice has been heard.


Wearing: pastel colours on my nails

Eating: a Chinese feast


Drinking: flat whites – my new favourite coffee order


Reading: so much about the election and results – I feel the whole country has a renewed interest in the country

Watching: Channel 4’s ‘Alternative Election’ until about 1am…it was tough getting up the next morning!

Buying: a selfie stick *ashamed face*

Planning: my next weekend with these girls


Cooking: a big pot of chili con carne which tasted even better the next day


Baking: mini Victoria sponges filled with strawberry jam, blackcurrant jam and lemon curd (the lemon ones were my favourite!)

Writing: my cross on my voting card


Favouriting: This person’s efforts to cross stitch a UK map as each election result came in!

Working on: my yoga – trying to do it every day and feeling better after each session


Trying to decide: if I really needed 5 new pairs of shoes and 2 new foundations

Wishing: for breakfast in bed more often


Enjoying: the Bank Holiday and a 3-day weekend

Needing: a spending ban for the rest of the month!


Feeling: completely relaxed after a back massage, facial and Indian head massage

Giggling at: the results from this website…my age has swung from early twenties to late fourties – I don’t take a blind bit of notice to it but it made me giggle nonetheless.

About hannahhotcakes

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
