Sunday Sevens // 35 2015

Sunday Sevens is a weekly blog series which enables you to share seven photos from the last week, to privide a little window to your world. Visit Nat’s blog to find out how you can join in.  

The holidays have
ended and new term begun, it’s an exciting time of year when the weather becomes cooler and the leaves start to crinkle. 1.  A lovely lunch at one of my favourite cafes – eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. 
 2.  The fields the dogs used to love to chase through have been harvested and turned into hay bales! Luckily that means many new opportunities to explore and sniff. 

3.  Picked up some pretty vintage buttons for just 20p per set. 

 4.  The end of the holidays and new school year is always time for reflection. I’ve let my eating habits slip somewhat over the last year or so and would like to put that right, so I’ve been researching recipes that are tasty, filling but also quick enough for week nights. 

 5.  I’ve stuck to my pledge. I’ve still only completed one garment so far, but have patterns cut out plus fabric for one item. I had to share this picture when I saw it 😊

 6.  As the weather is now more changeable, any sunny days or warm evenings are even more appreciated. 

 7.  Had my hair put up in a messy, curly, side bun for a family party. This is taken at the end of the night but it stayed in pretty well.

 Tomorrow the first full week of term begins so I know it will be busy. I’m looking forward to getting to know my new class, and getting properly back into the swing of it all. The weather today is beautiful, so fingers crossed we’ve not quite seen the last of summer yet.

    It’s wonderful to see how your favorite places change throughout the year, isn’t it? Especially with dogs, who are always so enthusiastic about everything. Looking forward to seeing your sewing projects and any good recipes you should find–we’re always looking for new healthy dishes here.

  2. The first week back is never too bad is it? But as my hours change each year it always takes me a while to get used to the new routine. As usual, loving your outdoors shots. A bit of late sun always feels like a treat 🙂

Yesterday I spent most of the day at this beautiful old hotel. It even had a doorman. •
#manchester #hotel #conference #christmas #christmastree #traditional Today I travelled to a conference in Manchester, and whilst exploring the local area came across an extremely festive German Christmas market. •

10k road race ~ plenty of Christmas costumes, dogs wearing Christmas jumpers + even Christmas music 🎶 Lovely route & love the Christmas pud + tshirt. •

#run #running #rungry #runuptoChristmas #weekend #dogjog #runningwithdogs #runnersofinstagram Up and out early this morning, transporting players to a football match in the middle of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside. The sun shone so brightly it was hard to see, but that’s not something to complain about this far into November. The team played well and they won 🙌🏼
