Sunday Sevens has just turned one! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ it’s a weekly blog series for sharing seven photos from your week, that you might otherwise be unlikely to blog about. Visit Nat’s blog if you fancy giving it a go. 

  Completely unsurprisingly for the first full week of the school year, I really am struggling to find 7 photos this week. Each day has consisted of school, trying to eat more healthily, and a dog walk. I’m behind with keeping in touch with friends, commenting on blog posts, and until Friday night hadn’t even entered the room where I sew. Bear with me, and we’ll see how far I get – but don’t hold your breath for variety! 

1. As I mentioned, I’ve been trying to eat better for just over a week now. I bought a couple of new cookbooks, inspired by Teresa, and have been making an effort to eat less processed food, no alcohol, plus  a lot less snacking.  I’ve started each school day with a slightly modified version of the Deliciously Ella coconut porridge. 

 2. Caught a little late summer sun whilst enjoying a mini Fab in the garden.  

 3. It’s blurry but hopefully you can see, little Wilfie was disappointed one morning at me going to work rather than playing ball with him.  

 4. Treated myself to a spiraliser! So far I’ve spiralised one cucumber and three courgettes, but I feel the possibilities are endless!  

 5, 6 and 7. My final 3 photos this week are of Saturday sewing! Managed to begin to make some progress with my pledge not to buy fabric until I’ve sewn 10 items using only my stash. I’m now about half way through number four. As it happens, the three below are all patterns I haven’t made before, but I’ll hopefully blog them individually or collectively soon.    

   I’m anticipating another busy one this week before a complete break from the norm the following week, when it’s French residential time, when all healthy resolutions will be suspended. Whatever you’re up to, have a great one.
