Weekend Experiences

The working week might revolve around planned meals, a strict-ish diet and possibly a few gym days; but come the weekend, I’m a firm believer in loosening the routine and indulging in good food with good friends. It’s even more enjoyable if some outdoors ‘puff’ can be woven into the scene too.
