Friday Fancies & Weekend Temptations

So these past three weeks have been a little more eventful than I had planned, particularly with a trip to X-ray with a suspected stress fracture of the foot, luckily it turns out to be damaged ligaments!  Needless to say I've spent a few evenings on the sofa, having been prescribed 4-6 weeks of rest, rather than walking by the beach or pottering in the garden!

3 weeks of 'rest' and I'm climbing the walls!  I'm still going to work, which to be fair is pretty painful, but I can't stop thinking about getting outside and going for a run!  Running isn't something I usually dream about but being sedentary doesn't suit me.  I miss my 4-6 mile walk every day, I miss cycling, I miss the sea!


That said The Boy did take me out to Urban Reef for Cocktails last week to take my mind off of it, and blimey, did I get distracted by this amazing cocktail....The Greedy Russian!



The menu states that it is 'The Dude's favourite gone all chocolatey!' with the addition of chocolate liqueur.......It did not state that it was topped with an entire chocolate brownie .........................AMAZING!!!!!!  It might have been a little unfortunate that I'd also ordered a millionaire shortbread on the side.......well perhaps not that unfortunate, it didn't take me long to devour both! (This must stop, I'm not allowed to walk for 4-6 weeks!  I'll be the size of a house if I go on like this!).

Here's a few things that caught my eye from around the web:
//Animals that don't exist - pure genius!  This is amazing!
//Love this mini wall banner.  
//What an awesome idea, recess at work and a toolkit to get you started.  Will you plan a recess at your work? 
//I love this bear print, and this raccoon one too, of course!

This weekend I'll be celebrating my birthday at the Bankes Arms Beer Festival with all of my amazing friends around me, and yes it will be the second celebration....sure I can squeeze at least another 2 in!  Here are some other things going on this weekend:
//Swanage Life Boat Week
//Chettle Fete, Dorset
//Camden Fringe, London
//Summer Screen at Somerset House, London

What are you up to this weekend?  Do you have any tips to help me keep sane for the next 3 weeks of sofa sitting?

Happy Friday my lovelies. xx
