Little Things I've Loved This Week #18

A not-so-little thing that I loved this week was finding out that I passed my finals! Aside from that, I've had yet another busy week of travelling between Bristol and my placement in Somerset. Here are some of the little things that have added to the results happiness over the past seven days...

Helping with medical school interviews. I did this last year too and I really enjoy taking part. The process is still going so I can't reveal too much, but I did get to spend the morning role playing to test candidates' communication skills and the afternoon assessing them at another station. It's almost exactly five years since my Bristol interview and it feels good to look back.

Homemade fresh bread. I've had major cravings for good bread since watching Victorian Bakers, and as I had a day off this week I decided to make a loaf. I got Ruby Tandoh's book, Crumb, for Christmas and used her basic bread recipe. The smell of fresh bread in the flat was amazing, and we devoured the entire loaf between two of us in 24 hours...

Walking round the Blaise Castle Estate. We took a revision break on (the exams just never end it seems in medicine) this weekend to spend an hour traipsing through the mud. It was far better than it sounds - the sun was out, the air was fresh and there were so many cute dogs!

Coffee and cake. Having worked up an appetite walking in the cold, we stopped off at a favourite cafe for lattes and cakes. I had a delicious toffee sponge cake and my friend a warm treacle tart with cream... ideal Saturday afternoon food.

Eggs & avocado brunch. Pretty sure this was on my list last week too - but this time I made it at home and loved it just as much!

Beautiful views of Bristol in the morning. I was up eating breakfast just as the sun rose over the city one morning this week and managed to get some photos of the changing sky. There's something very peaceful about watching a city come to life.

Next week I have plenty to look forward to, including a trip home and my 23rd birthday! I hope you've all had a lovely week - what little things have you enjoyed?
