Weekly Love: Week 169

Typically this is a space where I share my most recent television obsession, so this week I want to tell you all about Quantico. Let us forget about our friends across the pond who are on the second season already: here in the UK the second series aired last night and I’m obsessed. We join a new class of FBI recruits at the academy, except that we know that one of them (but we don’t know who) is a terrorist who goes on to blow up Grand Central Station 9 months later. There are so many different FBI/ CIA/ Police dramas out there; this is one if you love the genre, but you want something a bit different from the usual procedural format.

7. Saturday afternoon beer in the bath. | 8. Post-Big Easy cocktails at The Botanist on Sloane Square to celebrate my friend Ed’s 23rd birthday. | 9.

Cracking into the Easter egg the Lindt team were kind enough to send me early. | 11. Lunching on Green Eggs & Ham. | 12. 4 for £1 fresh from the sea herring purchased from the fisherman on Deal seafront.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what have you got up to so far over the Easter weekend? I’m happy to be enjoying a good 6 days away from the office, hopefully relaxing for a bit as well as working on other projects. I’m making duck leg ragu with homemade pasta on Saturday night, which I’m rather excited about.
