Last week was another funny old week. Poor Theo spent the latter half of it unwell, and the first half seemed to have passed me by as I have very few photos from before Friday. It definitely involved multiple park visits to make the most of this unseasonably benign weather that we’ve been having.
We’re lucky to have lots of green spaces around where we live; makes city living more child friendly and less claustrophobic.
My parents visited for a few days from Thursday so I made us these Blueberry Lassi Muffins. They were so good; especially if you love molasses as this seemed to be the dominant flavour. They were wonderfully moist despite being oil-free.
Friday night I met Tom after work, leaving my parents to babysit, so that we could enjoy a rare date night! A new vegetarian restaurant has opened near us called 1847. They’re a small UK chain restaurant. Unfortunately the food was disappointing (I can’t even recall what we had) and both Tom and I suffered afterwards. Shame.
Saturday morning I was up bright and early to queue to get my first tattoo, eek. So this guy opens his books once a year and on that day people queue to have a free consultation with him and book their piece in for the following year. I turned up almost an hour before it commenced yet still waited 5+ hours to see him. Fortunately, he knows how to look after his punters with free tea, coffee, cake, and some of his art work. Because I wanted to book in for a small piece I managed to get an appointment for the following week! Apparently, the booking day is primarily for bigger pieces. I had a great morning nonetheless.
By Sunday Theo was feeling a bit better so we went for a drive to one of our local seafronts. I love pebbly beaches; and even prefer them to sandy ones. We found a lovely cafe to have a cup of tea or some food but Theo started to go downhill so we’ve bookmarked it for next time.
And that sums up our somewhat eventful week. As an aside, can you believe it’s November already! A. is going to be one two weeks today. Bittersweet.
