Hello, hello, I hope that this finds you at the end of a good day. I don’t really like Mondays which is why I thought I might do my happy posts on a Monday so that I can think back to the lovely things that made me smile in the week before.
So, here are my happies from this week:
1. Homegrown marrow
Is there a difference between marrows and courgettes or is a marrow just a big courgette? Our courgette plant hasn’t had a single courgette on it – but we’ve picked two brilliant marrows and there are more on the way! Either we were sold the wrong plant, or we’re missing that crucial courgette-picking stage?! Anyway, we picked this beauty early last week – just over 5lb! I’m not sure what we’ll do with it yet. The first of our crop was a little smaller, so I made baked stuffed marrow for dinner on Monday – bit of a 70s throwback, but it really was delicious!
2. Tulip mosaic
You may remember months ago that Lucy shared a gorgeous post over at Attic24 all about tulips and her new mosaic made by the talented Felicity at Just Mosaics. I couldn’t get that picture out of my mind – as some of you realised when I attempted to make my own version from paint colour charts!
Anyway, last week I finally decided that I needed to have a proper Felicity tulip mosaic! and here it is. She’s doing this lovely pinks and purples version now and I completely adore it. I’m going to hang it in our kitchen and the pale blue background picks out the other pale blue items in the room perfectly. Yippeee!
3. An afternoon out
Mmm we had such a great afternoon sipping tea and eating the selection of finger sandwiches, cakes and scones. The scones were my favourite (jam first, right?!). We didn’t leave a bit! (oh, except that bit of lettuce and one burnt raisin)
I hope you’re having a very happy week,
