Happy Monday and Happy March!
How are you all on this fine Monday morning? Can you tell I am cheerful because it is a sunny day? Let’s see how long it lasts
Here is a (very) quick recap of my weekend, and some of the things I will be up to this week.
This weekend I
Attended another sewing class. Considering I had only made a pin-cushion and a pillowcase before christmas, and then not touched a sewing machine since, the Rockingstitch class to sew my own Coco top was maybe a tad ambitious! But we got there in the end and I have a snugly top that I’ve sewn myself. Ridiculously pleased! now I want one in every colour and stripes, and polkadots and.. you get the picture!
Got attacked and robbed by seagulls.
Picture the scene, you have just bought yourself a delicious bacon and cheese turnover for brekkie, and just as you leave the shop you feel this thumping at the back of your head, and there are just crumbs and wings and feathers everywhere, and your hair is a mess. Before you manage to gather yourself to realise what just happened the same thing happens again, but from the front this time. Those pesky seagulls stole my brekkie! damn you vermin of the sky! (Seriously, you have not seen “big” seagulls until you have been to Aberdeen)
Attempted home made naan breads instead of shop bought
And oh my goodness was it worth it – and simple to make too! yum yum! The vegetable curry I made to go with it wasn’t my favourite though I have to say, but who cares when you have bread?
Feasted on pick and mix jelly bellies.
Yes my Saturday treat consisted of jelly bellies jelly beans that I had hand picked myself, which meant that the bag was pretty much full to the brim of just cinnamon and buttered popcorn flavour. Pete was not impressed.
Finished watching season 3 of the walking dead
Gah – I want to watch season 4 and 5 now but we are too stingy to pay for the seasons, so have to wait until they become free on amazon prime.. this could take a while, so any suggestions of what we can watch next instead?
So that was pretty much my weekend in a nutshell. How was yours?
This week is not a terribly exciting one. Lots to do at work, attending a charity spinathon tomorrow, getting my fancy employee portrait taken by a professional photographer (heeeellooo giant spot on the chin, I guess you got the invite did you??) and maybe, just maybe attempt to make macarons again. I didnt even bother blogging about the 1st try because let’s just say they didnt turn out too nice looking!
