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.

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


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.

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?
