Sunday Summary #29

Life

IMG_6945

I haven’t felt brilliant this week if I’m being honest – sluggish, unmotivated and a bit moany. I’m trying to focus on the fact that school holidays are two weeks away and I am filling up my diary with lots of fun things to look forward to. I also went on a really motivational course on Friday which has refocused things at work too.

I spent the weekend with my best friends which always puts me in a better mood. We met the newest member of our gang and had a good catch up over pizza and ice-cream!

It’s my brother’s birthday today too so we are heading out to theirs later on tonight to watch the football and enjoy a roast dinner and hopefully some birthday cake too.

I sat in the sun for an hour or so this afternoon and read the first few chapters of The Bookseller of Kabul. It is really interesting so far.

Food

I’m trying to start the day healthily and am still enjoying experimenting with overnight oats – my current favourite includes fresh raspberries and mango, flax seeds and a handful of tropical trail mix.

We continue to obsess over the ‘Spirit of Summer’ range from M&S and this week enjoyed a selection of their snacks for dinner one night.

In an attempt to get me out of my funk, we went to The Longs Arms for dinner – one of my favourite places to eat. The food is divine and all ingredients are ethically and, where possible, locally sourced. I enjoyed a cheese soufflé to start, lamb for my main and a scoop of Turkish Delight and Parma Violet ice-cream for dessert.

Ian tried the Marmite ice-cream…definitely a love/ hate thing!

Finally, we had a lovely brunch in Bill’s this morning before waving goodbye to my friend Lucie as she headed back to London.

Beauty

My new Birchbox arrived this week. After a few fairly average boxes I was debating whether to continue but this one is the best I’ve had for a little while…review to follow!

I thought I would also give a quick shout out to Mikhila who posted about this amazing Origins kit where you can buy £84-worth of Origins products for just £20. I love this brand and ordered mine straightaway!

Fashion

Let’s start off with a fashion fail…

I’m having a bit of a moment with star prints, having bought a long-sleeved t-shirt and a cardigan with them on. I just think it’s a really fun print and makes me happy when I wear them.

Have a great week and let’s hope the weather realises it’s now July and we actually get a few sunny days to enjoy!

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!)
