A day in the life...

I was hoping to go to Renegade on Sunday, but unfortunately I found that it would take me about 4 hours to get there in total on the train, so in the end I gave up. I wish I had planned a full weekend in london earlier on, but at least now I will know for next year!

So instead I decided sunday would be a lazy day, but unfortunately we had a bit of a plumbing issue. Our toilet decided it was going to spring a leak, so Chris spent a lot of the day dealing with that. Yuck.

Anyway, here are some photos of the less disgusting parts of the day, just chilling out in our new house.

Of course a cup of tea always starts a sunday off right, and it is becoming tradition that we now drink it from our mating VW Camper mugs.
I caught up on some blog reading first thing, this is the view from our study window looking out at the big oak tree that overhangs our garden.
Our cupboards were looking rather bare, and we didn't have any gluten free bread (which is the only kind Chris is supposed to eat.) So instead I found this Sophie Dahl recipe for buckwheat blinis and scrambled eggs.  It was very handy since I already had buckwheat in the cupboard!
After breakfast I spotted a feline friend out of our kitchen window, so I followed him round to the back garden.  Cats seem to like it near our house because we are on the edge of a mini woods, I guess there are lots of things for them to chase and play with in there! I have seen 2 other cats doing a similar thing, but this one actually came into our garden for quite a while. Isn't he beautiful!? I was quite taken with him.

After toilet fixing had been completed, we went for a coffee with our friends. It's great that we now have 2 sets of friends that live within walking distance, and there are also shops, restaurants and coffee shops we can walk to as well!
For dinner I made salmon fishcakes using this recipe. What I liked about it was all of the 'super-food' ingredients that make up the cake. Salmon, quinoa and sweet potato, along with lots of yummy herbs. I've never used tinned salmon before but it was certainly more convenient than having to cook it first! All of the ingredients are things that I can have stored in my cupboard, so I think I will be making this one again!

Then we indulged in a Baileys Irish Cream, whilst watching Come Dine With Me. Perfect sunday TV!
Whats that? you want to see another picture of the cat? Oh, go on then!...
How was your sunday?

  1. I went to Renegade on Saturday and got a few bits. Sunday was pub lunch!

    1. Ooh you lucky thing. I am so jealous! Mainly about Renegade, but also a little about the pub lunch ;)

  2. What a cute little cat! You know what I got up to on Sunday but I wont make you jealous. Loving your Camper Van mugs :-)

    1. Haha, its ok, I've looked through all your photos so now I sort of feel like I was there with you! :)

  3. Mmmm... Baileys. The tastiest way to get in the festive spirit. Well, that and mince pies. And huge tins of chocolates. And Christmas cake. Ok, ok; I love all Christmas food. xx

    1. I've never really thought of baileys as festive, but i guess its not really a summer drink! I do enjoy getting into the festive ''spirit''!

  4. I never tire of seeing photos of cats! x

    1. Me neither, and this one was such a cutie, I had to get a few. Well, more than a few really! Haha

  5. Me and my hubby drink our Sunday morning tea in exactly the same mugs hehe...


  6. What an adorable kitty! He is looks very clever.

  7. I love your new feline friend - what a cutie! When we first moved in to our new home a ginger cat just strolled in and curled up on our sofa as we were bringing in all of the boxes - he obviously decided to adopt us!
    I have had a bathroom leak this week too, so I feel your pain! Sunday for me was spent in B&Q buying new tiles and grout!

  8. Looks like you had a lovely day anyway, I really wanted to go as well but sometimes London is too far, I'm hoping they might do them in other cities in the future.


  9. That's a bummer you had to skip Renegade but it looks like you had a very lovely day!
