Happy Friday, friends!
What did you get up to last weekend? I visited my parents in Staffordshire and acquired a few new things for my house (and blog!). My hometown now has a cute shabby chic style shop (that is also cheap!) and I picked up some vintage crockery, a pretty butter dish (I think I might just be done with spread – butter all the way!) and some shelves!
We also played lots of games of cards! I lost, as usual!
The shelves are a slightly odd purchase as we don’t really have room for them right now (they’re currently in our hall acting as a place to display pretty bits and bobs. In the future I can see them living in the dining room with crockery etc on, so I had to nab them as we’re hoping to buy a house in the next year or two.
On Sunday, I headed back to Nottingham (with a new flatscreen tv courtesy of my parents – it was their spare one – thanks mum and dad!) in the blustery wind and rain (and lots of flooded roads!). Very soon after, the two kittens that we’re fostering arrived!
I’m calling them Blackie and Brownie (not necessarily proper names but we’re unable to definitely keep them unless Milo decides he can accept the newcomers) and they are the most confident creatures I’ve ever met in my life! Lee calls the black one ‘scapy’ since she’s quite the expert escape artist! She also loves rubbing her face against yours. Brownie is SUPER playful but a little shyer and less boisterous than Blackie!
On Wednesday evening I popped round to Erin’s to watch the Great British Bake-Off! We ate lots and lots of cheese and ate cornflake cookies (yum!) and I furiously typed and tweeted – lovely Erin was very patient and made me tea! She was an excellent assistant!
This week I’ve also been putting a bit more effort into making dinners- I made a rosemary focaccia and a filo tomato feta pie!
What are you doing this weekend? I’m hoping to get a few things sorted around the house and spend a bit more time trying to get Milo and the kittens getting along… any tips?
