    THE ELLE BLOGGS BAROMETER #2

    Finally I am back in a routine - hallelujah!

    After having a bit of a ropey start to 2017 (AKA snoozing my alarm every day before work) I'm back to getting up in the morning to go to gym, planning out all my meals for the week AND I'm keeping to my blog posting schedule. I'm basically being an adult again.

    This week was a bit of quiet one for me but exactly what I needed to get back on track. So here's all the good and the bad from my week....

    WHAT'S HOT

    1. ROAST DINNERS & CATCH-UPS
    We went through a stint of NEVER having a Sunday roast so that's one thing we're definitely changing this year.

    Last weekend we met some of our good friends for a catch-up and roast at the Ealing Park Terrace.

    It wasn't the best roast I've ever had (not nearly enough gravy for me) but the pub itself is lovely. If you're ever towards Ealing way, it's well worth a visit for a drink or two.


    2. REAFFIRMING MY LOVE FOR RYAN GOSLING
    We went to see La La Land on Friday night and it deserves every single accolade that's been thrown it's way so far.

    It's shot beautifully and the ending made me cry. Plus if you haven't heard Ryan Gosling sing before you need to go to Spotify and listen to his band 'Dead Man's Bones' *swoon*

    3, CREATING RECIPES
    I feel like I've finally got my recipe creating mojo back and have been super proud of the last few that have featured on the blog. I remember when I first started out I struggled to get my photos accepted on FoodGawker - and now the last 5 I've submitted have all been accepted. Virtual high fives.

    WHAT'S NOT

    THE GREAT BLIZZARD OF 2017
    Well that was a bit of a let-down wasn't it? I was fully prepared to dig my way out of our front door on Friday morning but I didn't even need to de-ice my windscreen. That's the last time I believe weather reports of ThunderSnow!

    NO SHOWERS AT THE GYM
    I am in no way one of those people that complains about newbies in the gym in January. Go you if you've signed up. I'm just really not a fan of the fact that my gym only has FOUR private showers for everyone. So yeah - I've been going to work, fresh and sweaty from the gym which all kinds of gross (forgive me). 

    Hope you've all had a fab week too!

    1. Your food snaps are gorgeous - I'm very jealous! It's definitely been hard to get back into a routine but I'm trying to embrace the early mornings!

    2. Always love your food snaps. There are queues for my the showers at my gym now - missing the blissfully empty December gym visits! x

    3. Some great photographs here, that chocolate pudding looks superb! I've heard some really great things about La La Land, may go and see it this week actually.
