I hope you’re all having a lovely relaxing Sunday morning. Let’s start by catching on my Sunday last week. It was my best one in a while.
I spent all morning lolling around in my pyjamas (a belated celebration of National Pyjama Day the day before) catching up on emails and reading blogs. I made myself eggs and avo on toast. Pretty perfect Sunday morning, right?
In the afternoon we spotted a gorgeous mirror being advertised for free on our local Facebook community page. There are always lovely things being sold or given away – I’ve given away plenty myself too – but you really have to be on the ball. If you don’t spot an item within five minutes of it being posted, it’s gone. So I was well chuffed when I spotted this corker of a solid pine mirror one whole minute after it had been advertised. We walked to a house five minutes round the corner to pick it up a few hours later.
Isn’t she a beaut?
Obviously it’s not been put up yet, it’s only resting up against our dining room table.
But I’d only been thinking recently how nice it would be to get a big mirror for our downstairs hallway. As we’re in a Victorian terraced house, there isn’t much natural light in the hallway so I think a big mirror will brighten it up a bit. Plus it’ll be great for checking my make up just before heading out the door!
Afterwards, as it was so warm and sunny we felt like we should celebrate with a quick drink so we went for a cheeky pint in the local pub. Afterwards we headed back home to retreat to the sofa for a Netflix binge.
I bought some beautiful daffodils which have been making me smile every time I sit in the front room, and I happily discovered some bluebells in the garden.
Through the evenings this week I’ve been happily tucking into Almond Dream dairy-free ice cream. Has anyone else tried it? It’s delicious! I’ve only seen it in two flavours: Mint chocolate chip and salted caramel and I have to say the caramel is my favourite of the two.
And in case you missed my big news this week, I had another post published on Buzzfeed and this time it was about my home town, Northampton. It’s a little tongue in cheek, it has a little place in my heart really 😉
