Sunday Catch-up #24

Hello! It’s been another busy week for us with both sets of parents visiting, a Mexican-themed birthday party on a boat, our village fete and I am hoping to round the weekend off with a cinema trip to see Jurassic World!

This week I have been…

Making: sure my new plants are fed and watered…determined not to kill these ones!

Going: to Wagamamas – I tried their new duck pancake dish

Wearing: my party shoes – love these glittery brogues


Eating: ribs #standard


Drinking: Coronas

Reading: blogs

Watching: Game of Thrones…so good this week!

Buying: these limited edition Orla Kiely coffee jars


Planning: some fun summer weekends

Cooking: fennel – my new favourite vegetable


Baking: not proper baking but I did make some very healthy pancakes


Writing: in my journal each night

Favouriting: my friend Holly’s blog – she’s a fellow bookworm and I love her reviews of ‘My Little Box’

Working on: the bottle stall at our village fete


Trying to decide: where Ian is taking me next weekend – all I have been told is that it is a birthday surprise, that I will love it and that I don’t need my passport! I’m intrigued.

Wishing: fake tanning wasn’t such a faff

Enjoying: my bestie’s 30th birthday party

Needing: my Body Shop order to arrive as I’ve run out of serum

Feeling: very happy when I see these beautiful peonies on my kitchen table


Giggling at: my Mum’s face when we bit into our cream teas and realised we had picked up cheese scones! Weirdly, they weren’t awful!



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!)
