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 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?
