Week in Photos #45

Sorry that my week in photos is a day late. We travelled to Wokingham yesterday to visit some of Spencer's family. Its the yearly meet up after Christmas to exchange late gifts. We had a lovely day and I'm looking forward to spending my IKEA vouchers :)

We went to the Harvester for tea last Monday. I'm not a huge fan of the Harvester to be honest, the menu is just too same-y for my liking. All meat, meat, meat. I like meat but I also like variety. I am a fan of their chocolate cake though :)

I have had some healthy moments this week, I've been taking tuna salad to work and actually enjoying it! Highly unlike me as I tend not to like healthy stuff, a bit of pasta to bulk it up and it satisfies me nicely.

 Green beans, a tiny bit of mash and a Salmon Parcel - yum :)

I bought the new Aunt Bessie's Yorkshires for Sausages and couldn't wait to try them! I didn't put all the sausages in one because they are big and I think more than one would be too much. I love them though, the sausage fits perfectly in the Yorkshire.


Gorgeous sky Saturday morning, one of the (the only?) advantages of waking up early on the weekend.

I recently dug out my Deliah's How To Cheat cookbook and have been loving it! I made Shepherd's Pie one evening after work which I would never usually do due to lack of time and energy. Deliah's cheats of using tinned minced beef, ready chopped prepared veg & Aunt Bessie's frozen mash made life a lot easier.

A few bits that I picked up in town on Saturday. A sample of Estee Lauder's maximum wear foundation from House of Frazer, potentially the new love of my life. COOK wooden letters & Kiss false eyelashes (79p each) from Home Bargains. Cadbury Mallows with Caramel from the Pound Shop, I'd never seen these before so couldn't resist picking them up. They didn't disappoint.

I've decided to sell my Weight Watchers pack on eBay. I'm still trying to loose weight but I feel that I know the diet enough now and can do it without the use of the books. These have been sitting around not being used for ages. This is the complete kit for the 2011 Pro Points system, you can view and buy it here if you want to help me pay for my Wedding!

You have probably realised by now that I am useless at dieting. As we were in town early on Saturday for a meeting at the bank we didn't have time for breakfast so had a naughty Frankie & Benny's breakfast. I went for the pancakes with bacon & eggs. It was amazing!


Saturday night saw PJs and pizza. Bad dieter. One day I will get will power from somewhere...

I always get a little excited when this song comes on shuffle when I'm travelling anywhere. This is my perfect travel song.

What have you been up to this past week? Have you been any more successful with the new years diet than me?
