This has been a long ol’ week! I knew January was going to be a bit manic work-wise so I have purposely left my weekends relatively free to relax and reboot. However there have been some highlights this week…
Ian very kindly surprised me with a 5-course tasting menu at this lovely pub last night. The food here is always great with lots grown on site. My particular favourites were some tasty venison arancini balls and the pudding which was a banana sticky toffee pudding.
Secret in Their Eyes
We are quite partial to a Saturday night film and this one we watched last weekend was excellent. A very dark thriller with a great twist and a top notch cast.
I treated myself to a bunch of roses this week and they really do cheer me up when I see them sat on the table.
I try and set myself a mini task to achieve over the weekend, and this time it was to sort out our hallway. We bought a lovely little vintage ladder that I use to hang scarves from but it had become a bit of a mess. I had a good sort out, sent several scarves and snoods off to the charity shop and can now actually see what I want to wear rather than rifling through a big mess.
We toyed with the idea of getting a new coffee machine in the January sales but I have read so much about how awful the pods are for the environment that it put me off. Instead, we got a new coffee pot and have been enjoying freshly brewed ‘proper’ coffee in bed at the weekend and it is lovely!
