Thanks for all the super comments on my baby blanket and fruity almond cake! ooh it’s made my week!
Here are some more happy from the week that was::
I received a lovely surprise parcel from an old friend in the post this week (ooh, I love post!). A belated birthday present of a gorgeous ladybird card and matching pins. They are so cute! and then, the very same day, The Bert came back from a meeting in London with another surprise for me. A wee giftie – Just Because. A little shopper coin for my keyring, to replace the one which I lost from the trolley a few months ago. Love the little bird!
It’s been a week of delicious food. Highlights have been a bargain loaf in the reduced section (reduced from £3.95. FOR BREAD?! Who buys these things?! it was yummy though!); a fresh brown trout (which The Bert caught, readied for cooking, and baked as a surprise dinner for me); a BBQ when the family were over and the raspberry/strawberry almond cake. I’m going to need several turns at the gym to work it all off!
3. Family time
My family (parents, sister, brother-in-law and niece) came over for the day on Saturday. We had such a lovely time. BBQ lunch, little trip into town, lots of playing, eating, tea drinking, early birthday present for my niece… she is so gorgeous at the moment! We took her to the pottery cafe so that we could get her footprint on to a couple of little plates. So sweet! Bit tickley painting her toes, so apologies for the blurry picture!
4. Our kitchen table
We bought this lovely table and chairs several weeks ago, and have been waiting until the renovation work was mostly done to set it up and in place in the kitchen. It is ExACtly what we wanted! It just looks so perfect in our kitchen. I even set it up on Saturday night ready for breakfast on Sunday (above)! It really is making me so happy to have somewhere in the kitchen to sit down and eat. We’ve got into bad habits, having our dinner on our laps in front of the TV but even in the short time the table’s been up, we’ve been eating most of our meals at it and that fills me with such joy ♥
I know I’ve cheated a bit this week and popped in several photos. I had a bit of a glut of happy things this week, the little sorts of things, and I just wanted to capture it all, you know?
Anyway, I hope that you’re having a very happy week,
