This Weekend: A Quiet One

A sneaky preview of something coming up on the blog next week!

Hello everyone, I hope I'm finding you well this Sunday evening? First things first, let's discuss how cute the little hat sitting on top of my smoothie is! Every Innocent smoothie sold wearing it's own little hat is a donation made to Age UK to help keep elderly people warm during the winter which I think is such a lovely idea. We have to do what we can to help the older people in our communities. Although... Does anyone have any ideas what I can do with such a tiny hat once I've drunk the smoothie?

This weekend has been a fairly quiet one. Paul was busy painting our bathroom ceiling on Saturday and I hopped on a bus to go see my dad and spent the afternoon at his house catching up and watching the 6 Nations rugby. It was nice both because I haven't seen him for a while, and it was good to get out of the house to somewhere other than town... Often on weekends I find myself just kind of wandering the city centre just so I haven't spent the whole day inside, and I've got a bit bored of looking in the same shops all the time. Thanks for having me, Dad!

 - Just in case you were wondering, the bus journey to Dad's took me nicely through to Track 8!

Today has been equally relaxed. I spent the morning just browsing blogs and replying to comments over a cup of tea, and then joined my mum, brother and sisters for our usual Sunday visit to Grandma's house this afternoon. I love this Sunday tradition and I hadn't been for two weeks because I had a cold I didn't want to pass on last time. As for this evening, we're getting ready to watch the BAFTAs while we have tea, and then straight to bed! It's on til 11pm - way past my bedtime!

  1. It sounds like you had a lovely weekend - sometimes quiet weekends spent with family are just what the doctor ordered.

    I actually made empire biscuits for the first time this weekend using very similar sprinkles as the ones in your photograph - they didn't turn out as pretty as hoped though, so I don't think they'll make it on to my blog, haha!


    p.s. I already have three little wooly hats from Innocent smoothies last week - I'm planning on popping them on my hard boiled eggs come Easter!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read and appreciate every single one!
