Sunday Strolling and Summer Rolling
This weekend was lovely and I would really love to go back and do it all again please? Ok, cool, thanks! We ate some super yummy food, chilled out, saw friends and watched a movie. Bliss. We still had to fit in all the other bits and pieces of life like loading the dishwasher, cleaning the kitchen sides and sorting out washing, but sometimes that's really not so bad. Friday night I went out for food and cocktails with some friends as the lovely James (who you may remember from this post) is leaving us to move to London for a new job. Good luck buddy, you go Glen Coco! The cocktails were good and the company was great, the food...not so much. Eh, never mind. We're hoping to get another drinks session in soon, so I need to get a wiggle on organising that! Saturday was spent having a much needed lie in followed by a walk around Canterbury getting bits and pieces for lunch. Robert made the best scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and toasted tiger bread. Sooo good! I then watched Howl's Moving Castle and may have ended up having a nap.
Sunday was possibly even better than Saturday, although it had the downside of feeling like the start of the weekend instead of the end which was super disorientating. Robert suggested that we head out to a coffee shop in Canterbury to grab an early morning drink and flapjack. It was so lovely to chill out together over tea and flapjack. Robert got a bit of work done, I took my book and we spent the morning looking over a rather grey and rainy Canterbury. I then tried making Vietnamese Summer Rolls, which actually went pretty well, if I do say so myself! I then ended up getting some chai tea with my friend in the afternoon, so it was definitely a day of tea and food- if not a whole weekend of tea and food, especially as Robert made a super yummy roast dinner to finish up the day. PLUS we have finally got around to watching Making a Murderer, I think we're about 3 episodes in and we're both intrigued as to what's going to happen!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!
P.s I love that quote from my book 'Oh teach me how I should forget to think!', it stayed in my head for quite a while.
