Sunday Catch-up #36

Hello! I took a few days off blogging this week. It was Ian’s birthday so we have been seeing family and friends in the evenings plus work has been manic so I needed my time at home to be spent just relaxing and not thinking about school!

We’ve had a fab weekend. We decided very last minute (i.e. late Friday night) to spend Saturday at Go Ape. Ian had wanted to go for his birthday but we didn’t fancy doing it unless the weather was good and upon seeing it was sunny this weekend, we jumped in the car with my brother and his girlfriend and headed up to the Forest of Dean. We had so much fun and I’m really glad we went. I was terrified in places but had such a sense of achievement when I finished the course, although I’m aching a bit today!

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!)
