The Week That Was | Hanna's Places

Phew, I can’t believe another week has come and gone! I feel like time is running more than ever at the moment (my birthday is in only 4 days!) and I’m trying to seize every minute of it.

On the weekend, I travelled home for my grandmother’s birthday. We had some delicious food, played monopoly, talked, my little brother played the piano…a typical birthday in my family. It was cozy and fun and I loved it.

Also at home, I finally started watching Downton Abbey season 4 with my mom (we always watch together so we have to wait until I come home and visit to continue). I’m still a bit sad about the ending of the third season (everybody who’s watching knows what I mean), but the fourth is still really good!

On Saturday, I discovered a new café with a friend called Dulce. They serve fresh coffee, homemade cake and chocolates and everything is pink and white. A girls dream. We have already planned our second trip next week.

On Tuesday, I skyped with a good friend for over an hour. It was so lovely to talk and catch up again after not seeing each other for quite some time. It’s strange, we have never used Skype before, although it’s such an amazing invention, don’t you think?

Other than that, my free time was mostly filled with studying for my exams. This week I decided to switch it up with watching some documentaries while eating chocolate cake. Definitely better than sitting at my desk!

I tried a lot of new recipe’s this week: Siobhan’s pasta and bean salad (perfect for work/uni), semolina dumpling soup (a German classic I have only ever eaten the instant version of) and a chocolate cake, that is officially the fluffiest cake I have ever eaten. I’m on a cooking/baking roll right now!

What was your week like? And what have you planned for the rest of the week? I’m going to get back to my documentaries now!

    Ah Monopoly, I hate this game haha! Probably because my brother would always win!
    That was quite a tiring and boring week over here… Working, solving problems with workers that messed up the appartment, grocery shopping (I feel like the fridge had been empty for ages!), meeting with my boss and clients. In between I went to the gym (and oh my gosh, it was hard because I tried some new exercises that I had never done before!) and to the cinema as every week but I was happy when the weekend came. I had the best time at my bf’s place, we cooked delicious food (we just bought a barbecue, nothing’s better than summer griling!), went shopping (for him, but in the end I was the one who bought the most stuff!) and went in a park and had cakes from the best bakery in town! Really a perfect weekend!
    I took the week off and I plan to tidy a bit my appartment and catch up on DIY projects, and hopefully the sun will be back and I’ll go to the swimming pool!

      Well, after the great week you had last week, a boring week might be nice as well! And delicious food is always good. What’s the best bakery in Paris?

      Hope you enjoy your week off – DIY projects sound great!
