Home Sweet Home

We’re back! After an incredible 2 weeks away, 5 US states and countless foodie pictures on Instagram, Ian and I are back from our East Coast adventures.

It’s always strange coming back from a really good holiday – part of me doesn’t want it to end and I wish we were still in our little holiday bubble, eating out and exploring new cities with only each other for company. However, a really good holiday also inspires me to come home and shake things up a bit and I plan on making the most of what is left of this summer.


Let’s not avoid the obvious though; I am covered in mosquito bites that I am trying my hardest not to scratch, our laundry basket is overflowing, there is ‘stuff’ everywhere around the house, Ian is back at work already, my suitcase broke on the way home and don’t even get me started on jet lag…I’ve been up since 1:30am this morning, watching GBBO and drinking endless cups of tea!!!


However, there is a part of me that is really happy to be home and back in my own bed. I feel very inspired with my blog again and will obviously be documenting our holiday in detail over the next few weeks as well as introducing some new weekly features. I also feel very determined to get a bit fitter and healthier after a very indulgent fortnight, catch up with as many friends over the next few weeks and complete an essay for a qualification I have worked my arse off for over the past year.

Anyway, I have insect bite cream to apply and another load of washing to do so I will sign off for now…expect our New York post very soon! x


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!)
