Sailor V

Tom was away all of last week delivering training in Margate, and then Saturday was Bournemouth Bloggers Meet so Sunday was the first time we had to spend some proper time together in a little while.  One of our favourite things to do on a Sunday is go for breakfast and so we got up early (well, early-ish) and headed over to Cheese and Alfie's in Christchurch for some proper good grub.

I was obviously feeling nautical as I plumped for a rather sailor-y ensemble.  I bought my chinos with an ASOS voucher in December and they are the comfiest things ever and nice and thick for colder days.  After I took these photos I decided to change my shoes to some boots as it was utterly freezing and I'm beginning to learn that ballerina flats are not the ones when it's 1 degrees outside.

You might have noticed my bird's nest hair which is as a result of 'GHD-gate' and the fact that I haven't replaced my straighteners yet.  This is what it's like naturally without being tamed by heat! I don't really like it but I must admit I'm not complaining about the extra five minutes in bed I've gained!

I was a little bit naughty and opted for their 'deluxe hot chocolate' which is very indulgent indeed and comes piled with maltesers, cream and a flake for dipping.

Hot chocolate

For breakfast I ordered eggs blackstone - poached eggs with hollandaise sauce and bacon on a giant slab of toast.

Breakfast

Tom ordered their Pan Breakfast - sausages, bacon, black pudding, their homemade Boston baked beans, a poached egg, tomatoes and another giant slab of doorstep bread.

Pan Breakfast

In the afternoon we were supposed to take Bodhi for a long walk in the forest but I caught a real chill walking back from the café and so Tom took him for a long walk and I huddled in the study and enjoyed a blogging and blog reading session with some camomile tea.  In the evening we hid under blankets on the sofa and watched a film - or at least started to watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy before I gave up on it after about 25 minutes as I found it so slow.  Instead I disappeared upstairs for a long soak in the bath and a read of my book (currently reading Gone Girl which is really good so far). I love Sundays.  How did you spend yours?

  4. Sounds like a perfect Sunday! I may have to suggest going for breakfast this weekend to my boyfriend, although we usually just end up having a dirty fry up in 'spoons! Need to find a nice little cafe like the place you went to - your hot chocolate looks divine!
    I spent my Sunday morning in the gym, then sorted out a few bits in my room [chucked out a load of stuff, felt good!], had a clean and then cosied up for the evening watching rubbish tv :)

  5. I really like the birds nest hair! I'm sure there are hoardes of fashionable young things spending hours in front of their mirrors with backcombing combs and volumising spray trying to achieve the same effect!

  8. That food (and hot chocolate!) looks absolutely amazing, it's given me the tummy rumbles! I spent Sunday painting window frames in a house with no heating whilst it was 2 degrees outside, I'd FAR rather have been doing what you did, you lucky girl!

  12. Beautiful outfit, wish I could pull off coloured chinos like you do. Looks wicked with the navy & stripes also with the hint of gold coming from your necklace ( which I'm wanting by the way! )

    Is it bad that i've just had dinner but i'm already hungry looking at your hot chocolate and cooked breakfast...wish I could wake up to this tomorrow morning
    If i'm ever in your home town I am going to make you take me to all of these nice places you go to, i never find anywhere like them in Bristol ( sad face )

  17. Your breakfast looks delicious- definitely would have picked what you did. It sounds like a really lovely weekend, and a perfect Sunday! And don't worry about your hair- a) it looks lovely, straighteners or no, and b) Sundays are for messy hair, aren't they?! xxx

  23. The title of this blog post is genius (didn't get it at first though..!)

    We went out for lunch on Sunday which was yummy. I got a roast dinner (veggie equivalent with a beetroot tart thingy) followed by crumble and custard. It was divine!

    Then we watched Pitch Perfect (third time for me, first for Jonathan - he loved it!) Then he watched Django and I had a nap.

    I love Sundays! x

  25. Ahh - lovely outfit! Loving the wavy hair too chicka. Really suits you. I wish my hair looked like that without GHDs! I concur on the Tinker Tailor comment too. I slogged it out, and it was pretty good, but it took a lot of concentration which isn't much good when I like to fuss around with knitting or letter writing while I have a film on xx
