I’m so glad the weekend is here! I picked up some pretty valentine’s red and purple tulips. They’ve all flopped over now though – I like tulips but carnations last a lot longer. Any other recommendations for long lasting flowers?
This past weekend we took a whole bunch of stuff to charity which I LOVE doing. I always have a charity shop bag on the go ready to pop in unwanted items. I try to always stay vigilent too about having too much clutter and give stuff away that I no longer love. I tend to give stuff to the PDSA and I like to make sure I’m giving them some really decent stuff like new clothes / gifts along with things that might be less popular (I didn’t love these plates but that doesn’t mean someone else won’t, right?!). Since they also run animal shelters I also take them old towels and sheets as apparently they need them, but I always feel super guilty about it!
It was so cold that our cats spent the whole weekend inside snuggling in the warm!
We spent lots of evening this week watching The Fall – we binge-watched season one immediately after finishing The Ultimate Fighter:nations, and now were on season 2! But it’s okay because the seasons are only six episodes each, right!? Have you seen it? No spoilers please! Jamie Dornan is so creepy I don’t think I could take him seriously in 50 shades of grey (not that I’m planning on seeing the film!).
On Saturday I made a recipe to share with you all in the run up to Valentine’s (which is now so plan something nice for your other half if you haven’t already!). They’re nutella filled heart shaped pizzas! Well, calzones really. Since it’s world nutella day on 5th Feb I got a bit carried away with nutella on my blog recently, I’ve got quite a lot of nutella posts coming up for you!
I also made a bumper batch of homemade tortillas and flatbreads using my food processor and this recipe. Homemade tortillas are SO good compared to shop bought ones – I slip them into a freezer bag and then defrost when I want a quick meal or wrap.
On Thursday I went back to Pilot for more delicious pizza, and this time, cocktails! They have some really inventive ones, like candy floss and prosecco.
Some cat highlights from the week – Bella being a little fuzzy outlined ball of energy, and Milo hiding (from bella) in the cupboard! Yes, that is where I keep my exercise ball!
What are you up to this weekend friends?
