Weekend in Pictures

Hello all! Hope you’re enjoying the heatwave and keeping hydrated! ;) Sorry about the radio silence recently… We’ve each had a lot going on from starting a new job, finishing up training to other big life changes. So we’re trying to keep Tracks going but when it’s quiet in here you know it’s because we’re just a bit hectic on this side.

Anyway, without further ado, here’s some snaps from our weekend…

Celeste had some good coffee, found a spoon in honour of Nessie and looked down to find Pac Man on the pavement.

Sarah is globetrotting in North America (lucky!), here’s a few beauties from Seattle.

Hanna is moving house (again!), in the midst of packing boxes there was a bit of time to give an old banged up bureau a new lease of life.

Hope ya’ll had a good one!

Hope you had a fun weekend! We’ve had a good one with friends, fresh air, cooking experiments, live music, bit of work and car boot sales. What more could you ask for from two little days?!

This weekend we’ve been appreciating life’s little joys

Celeste was a trooper and stayed up most of Friday night so she fully deserved her chilled out Sunday eve with Gatsby, Kinfolk and Tequila.

RelaxAs well as some sparkly, Danish men and a good film! (what more could you want?!)

Sarah kept active with the Craftivists

Weekend in Pictures…

A weekend and a half has been had… If you are at all squeamish about air rifles and metal squirrel targets you are advised to avert your eyes. Now.

Hanna finished these beautiful ceramic lamps, yet another epic assignment and got her life back… at least for the weekend!

photo 4

To celebrate clever Hanna I took a little visit to Bristol bearing presents from our lovely friends. A beaut little card from their god-daughter ‘To Auntie Jon and Uncle Hanna’. 

photo 3-1

There was also a squirrel target for Jon to practice his shooting with.

photo 2-3

So, after some beautiful wholemeal pancakes…

photo 2-1Some shooting practice was definitely on the cards.

photo 3Hanna makes shooting look so dainty.

photo 1-1

Her husband romantically held her hair from her eyes so she could shoot the squirrel. Totes true love! 

photo 1-3

If you’re shooting a gun, you should probably have a cigar too… and red nails? Perhaps not my finest hour?

photo-1

Shooting an air rifle is thirsty work. Skinny Flat White extra shot should do the trick!

A little potter around Bristol.

Some new friends.

Big silver ball in Millenium Square, Bristol’s answer to Anish Kapoor?

Some tasty lunch.

Sarah has jetted off to visit her man she’s with as he gallavants around North America… So jealous!

Not before stopping in Giraffe for some brunch at the airport! Have fun!! We’ll miss you!

photo 2-2

So there is our weekend and a half. What a good one it was. Let’s hope that life is full with many more like this. Good friends, good food, good drinks, jetting off on adventures … and an air rifle.

Happy Monday!

A Vancouver Weekend in Pictures… (A guest post from the lovely Emily)

Over the past little while we have asked a few of our lovely friends if they would do some guest posts for us. So we are looking forward to introducing some of the clever and talented people we have the good fortune of coming into contact with. Before Christmas we had Jonny do a crafty christmas wreath Make, Do, Mend. Now for our second guest post we have a Vancouverian Weekend in Pictures from a most lovely lady called Emily!

Hello, Foxes!

Emily here, writing to you from the far wilds of Western Canada. I have been following this lovely blog for many a month, and am super pleased to have been asked to post. (Thanks, ladies!)

I met Celeste ten years ago (ten years, Lesty!!) when we lived together in Watford. As evidence, here is a pic of the two of us from 2006, when I popped back to the UK for a visit.

Emily and Celeste

I dunno what’s up with my face. Moving on.

These days, I work as a receptionist for an animation studio, and live in a little studio apartment in Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood. I’ve got a masters degree in Creative Writing, so I’m hard at work on a couple manuscripts. I like words. My favourite food is chocolate.

But what about your weekend, you say? Quite right!

January is a tough month for Vancouverites – it’s dark and rains pretty much constantly. That said, there are definitely ways to escape the winter funk.

For example, on Friday night you could go see your writer friends read tribute poetry, riffing off of the classic No Doubt album Tragic Kingdom. This is my beautiful pal Leah, laying down some Stefani-worthy stanzas.

Leah

The next day, you could do a touch of shopping at The Archetype. I walk past this gem every morning on my way to the bus. And I’m wearing my new cardigan – thanks, January sales!

The Archetype

I would recommend a wander down Main Street, where there are nifty things to eat and wear.

Main Street

This is one of my favourite Vancouver buildings.

Lee Building

If you’re anything like me, getting to a good concert every once in a while can really make you feel like a person again. Head downtown for this part of your weekend.

Orpheum

I would strongly recommend Whitehorse – they’re a Canadian husband/wife duo, and they sound like Johnny Cash and The Civil Wars had a baby. A glorious sound baby.

Whitehorse

Be sure to take a sweet gal named Michelle with you.

Michelle et Moi

Since you still have a whole day of your weekend left, you could check out Chinatown.

Chinatown

Where there might be a cheery VW van.

Van

And then you should most certainly meet up at someone’s house to eat hot pot. I’d never had this Asian dish before, but it involves sitting around a (you guessed it) hot pot of water and cooking cut up vegetables, meat, and tofu in little basket-scoops. It was amazing. I think I’m still full.

Hot Pot

If you take your friend Stephen…

Stephen et Moi

…there will also be a pretty fantastic dessert…

Dessert

…that will be gone in three seconds.

Remains of Dessert

So there you have it, folks. A fabulous Vancouver weekend, perfect for chasing away the blues.

Thanks again to the Foxes girls for having me along!

Some fox tracks…

Then we thought it wise to stay in the warmth for a bit and keep updating ourselves with Danish Parliament..

photo 2

Celeste got to catch up with one of her besties from growing up in Vancouver. Nothing like a beer with an old friend!

photoIt’s probably always a good idea to finish your weekend with a little pork taco… or three.

Here’s to a bit of spring soon!
