My Week in Pictures 3

March 23, 2014

I had a bit of a quiet week this week, mostly doing mummy stuff and catching up on blog reading.

On Monday Lila and I popped to Primark, I had been after a couple of new skirts which I had seen online, but sadly neither of them was in stock. But I did manage to get lot’s of basics, like tops for the summer, flip flops and sunglasses as well as a few hair accessories, so not a wasted visit!

As usual we did lot’s of baking this week. Lila made some cinnamon fairy cakes in this cute silicone cake mould which Rob picked me up in Lidl.

I started and finished the fabulous Little Beach Street Bakery by Jenny Colgan. I love her books, they are my chick lit guilty pleasure and each one seems to get better. I also bought a huge new mug from Sainsburys, so I can have extra big tea! Yay!

We got out our big wooden train set and have played with it loads this week. I absolutely love building big complicated tracks and now I want more!

The only outing I really had this week so to the Ideal Home Show, as Fay and I had press passes. It was a really great day out with loads of inspiring home ideas and lots and lots of shopping. I didn’t buy much but I picked up a few things that I’ll share on the blog next week. I also filmed a vlog, which I will try to edit when I get a chance.

One of my favourite stalls was Simply Vintage Designs, who actually sold at my vintage fair a couple of years ago. They have such pretty little vintage bits for the home.

While we were there we had a yummy pizza Express, I opted for a Niciose Salad, as I had done a ridiculously gruelling Body Attack class that morning and wanted to be good! It was delicious though and a great change from Pizza.

We also treated ourselves to a cocktail at the show, we each had a Watermelon and Basil Mojito, which was unusual but very refreshing.

I also have another new craft hobby, which is making flower garland headbands. A video tutorial for this one will be up on the blog tomorrow.

I hope you’ve all had great weeks. I’m going to try to make this next one an interesting one! xxx

    Ooohh, yum! Watermelon and basil together sounds very, very tasty to me. I will have to sub in basil for mint in my usual summertime watermelon, herb and goat’s cheese salad at least once this year. Thanks for the culinary inspiration!
