Thursday Favourites ’11’

Thursday soon comes around !

Here is a list of five things I have enjoyed over the past seven days. :)

Baking. :)

Believe it or not we have been living without an oven for nearly three months! We still had a hob and the microwave but our actual oven had broke and being lazy as we are , we couldn’t be bothered to go out and buy another. After numerous take-aways , trips out and the odd curry, Wil decided he needed to make a sunday roast quite soon….and even I’ve had a hankering to do some baking.As soon as our new cooker arrived I found a lovely recipe in the April edition of the Simple Things magazine, for Lemon & blueberry cake. Here is the result!

Mellow Yellow

I’m loving the spring colour of yellow at the moment. It just promises sunshine. I feel a yellow inspired post coming on soon.:)

Sea Air.

There is nothing better than getting away to the coast , even for just a couple of hours. On sunday we drove over to Lytham for some bracing sea air to blow the cobwebs away. I love the sea side. :)

Marooned. :)

Airbnb.

We booked Paris! I never thought we would actually book it. Feeling extremely lucky as we have two amazing city breaks planned this year. Happy days. :) Anyway we thought stopping in Paris would feel all the more authentic if we stayed in a french home rather than a hotel. Air bnb rent out rooms and studio apartments all over the world and we found this one 15 mins from the centre of Paris belonging to Aurelie. :) There are all price ranges. We have paid £52 per night and are staying for four. Can’t wait!

Tea Cup Trinket Stands.

I put the other half to work drilling :-) as these trinket stands are proving very popular at the moment. I love them and they are a pretty way of upcycling old tea sets.

  1. Those trinket stands are adorable!

    The cake sounds delicious! I made a blueberry cake from the BBC food website last year and it turned out pretty well.
