FOOD | Clark & Ravenscroft

Apparently my friend Bridie features in all my food posts. When we get together we love to eat. One of my favourite things about living in Norwich is how easy it is to support local businesses and eat somewhere new. Clark & Ravenscroft was recommended to me by a friend so, when it was pouring with rain this weekend and Bridie and I were craving lunch, we decided to give it a go. It's tucked away in the Norwich Lanes, with a cosy seating area in the back. We immediately loved it. 

Both of us got the soup. Soup is my favourite winter food. I could eat it every day. I even bought a slow cooker recently so I can make my own soup. I love it. Luckily Bridie feels the same. The sweet potato and lentil soup had the option of a toasted cheese sandwich on the side (with a choice of 3 types of cheese) and was the perfect hearty lunch on a cold autumn day. My drink was also amazing - it tasted like sweets. Definitely a spot I would recommend and I will be heading back myself as soon as possible.

22nd birthday gifts; a large glass for the birthday girl; homemade roast from scratch

some spiky new pals for my windowsill; finally got my hands on Taint magazine; piecing my room together bit by bit

Somehow it's October and I've nearly been living in my new place for 2 months. My 22nd birthday came and went, and I ate ridiculous amounts of food and spent time with my favourite people and tried not to feel too old. I've also been buying bits and pieces to decorate my house slowly and it's all coming together a bit more every week. Graduate life has been a definite adjustment, it has its ups and downs, but as long as no one asks me about my future or my career plans I should be okay. I'm looking forward to the next few months. I love everything about Autumn and all of the exciting things coming up like Halloween and Bonfire Night and, of course, Christmas and New Year. I can't wait.
