Bargain skirt from m&s (£6 in the sale from Limited Collection!) and ranunculus from my garden. Ranuncs are my favourite flowers after peonies.
Bought this book on all your recommendations! Can't wait to try some recipes. I've ordered some mexican chillis and chipotle ketchup from the Cool Chile Co and can't wait for them to arrive! The ketchup will be amazing on bbq'd meat once we get some bbq weather.
Architecture porn. I love the houses on this road near us in Aigburth. They all have original features and the same 3 panel doors and cute door bells and sash windows. The other building is the oldest building in Liverpool city centre, the Bluecoat. We popped in the other day to look at the vintage fair but I didn't see any bargains really.
We spent a fair bit of time in the garden last weekend and used our new table & chairs for the first time to have a cup of tea outside and listen to the football. We have peas, potatoes, beetroot, carrots, spring onions and kale all growing in our humble yard. Can't wait to have our first harvest!
This week I was visited by the lovely teapigs office fairy in work and got some to sample myself at home. The green tea with mint is absolutely lovely as sometimes I find mint tea TOO much like toothpaste and not enough like tea, but the balance of this was perfect. The super fruit tea went down VERY well in work, all the samples were gone after a day!
This weekend has been a bit quieter, I have spent today doing absolutely nothing except dosing up on cold remedies and praying that I shake off this sore throat so that I can get running again (had a long run scheduled for this weekend but have felt too rotten to go out, boo). I bought some new running clothes for the summer, nike tempo shorts and a lovely green nike t-shirt! I usually just buy the cheapest running stuff from Sports Direct, which does the job, but you can definitely tell the difference in the pricey stuff. I think I'll wear the shorts for the Mersey Tunnel 10k as no doubt it will be pretty hot in the tunnel.
How has everyone else's week been? I hear we're in for some great weather this week so I am hoping we may be able to have our first ever bbq! So excited.
