The Sunday Post
The first in a weekly edition of The Sunday Post
Somehow it’s September, and even years after leaving education I’m still feeling a fresh start.
I’m not sure if it’s just me, but September spells a new lease of life for me. Despite leaving school many, many years ago I still feel a whole dose of inspiration and readiness to improve come the autumnal month.
So naturally, my first thoughts turn to this blog. How quiet and neglected it has been so far this year. A few million empty promises to myself to get back into writing and become more active again, and I’ve finally found myself with the right level of motivation to truly get back to it.
My life is pretty consumed by my job, day to day responsibilities and well, getting a decent amount of sleep. So I’ve decided to ease myself back in I’d try and keep up a regular Sunday post, like back in the good old days of blogging. More of a diary style entry.
There felt like no better week to start than seemingly the beginning of autumn, so here we are, week one were thankfully I did some vaguely interesting things to talk about. You watch, next week I’ll be sitting here with absolutely nothing to report.
Another week, another brewery
Half way through the week I decided I’d attempt to get the last sale tickets to the Camden Brewery Tank Party, I was unsuccessful which turned my Thursday into a bit of a sulk. However, after a little bit of research (i.e. looking at this week’s Time Out) I saw that London Fields Brewery was re-opening on Saturday. So as per our normal weekend routine, we hopped on the train and headed east.
The new taproom itself was brilliant, complete with some seriously delicious beers, favourites being the session pale ale, Corporate Jargon and the hazy pale ale, Gluteus Maximus. Plus, their current resident kitchen, Prairie Fire sells tater tots, which has basically made my life.
Of course, one brewery leads to another and we ended up over at the arches near Hackney Central visiting Deviant & Dandy, Pressure Drop x Verdant the Experiment & Lagom.
Nothing says a good weekend like a taproom, friends and a cool autumnal breeze. Typically I’ll be swapping this for a week in the sun next week, but I’ll be sure to resume schedule as soon as I’m back in the UK.
Ain’t No Party Like a Hoxton party
It’s no lie that I’m a massive Hoxton fan girl, they’re always my hotel of choice whenever I’m having a staycation in London or heading to my favourite, Paris. So I was pretty chuffed to head to the Hoxton Southwark’s opening party on Wednesday.
The decor quite literally had me snapping every corner and well, the rooftop is 100% going to be my top spot in London next summer. If you’re in the area, make sure you head over to check it out yourself, as always their bar is extremely welcoming.
Obviously once in one week wasn’t enough, I had the opportunity to head over with my work to do the Hox Hounds event there. Which quite frankly mixed two of my favourite things. I met the most gorgeous dogs - a Sunday well spent.
Until next week 🌻
