I started last week with the intention of blogging every day in an attempt to catch up with the online community. However, life sort of got in the way – it has a habit of doing that recently, and while I’m grateful for the opportunities and experiences, I have fallen behind yet again with everything I had planned…
It’s been a great week of yet more cocktails, reviews, shopping and cooking. I met up with my friend who moved to Spain a few years ago, and we spent hours catching up over a cocktail and lunch overlooking the canal. The Bloke has been a bit stressed, so I spent hours making a dinner of Mini Prawn Tostadas, Mexican Rice Casserole and that well-known Mexican dessert: No-Bake Nutella Cheesecake (yes, I will put up the recipes). I tested out the new menu at the Rose Villa Tavern in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, which was yummy (and a nice opportunity to catch up with some lovely foodie bloggers), and then went for a monster shopping session with a friend who is recovering from a long and debilitating illness. It’s been a joy to watch her get stronger every time I see her, and she completely out-shopped me! Ooh, and I won an Alexander McQueen wrap bracelet from Harvey Nichols too! Best raffle prize ever!
Yesterday, The Bloke went up north to spend the day with his family, so I had the house to myself. In the glorious sunshine the day before I had done loads of laundry, and still had more decluttering tasks to do, so I used my day productively… by sleeping all afternoon on the couch with the cats while Columbo was on the television.
Best way to spend a Saturday!!
How about you guys? What have you been up to?
