This week



Some things I've done this week...

♥ Cooked the Secret Greens Tabbouleh with ingredients from my Abel and Cole veg box.  It was YUM. (I made it again the next day!)

♥ Bookmarked the Christmas Gift Hampers section on Baking Mad after seeing Katie's post about Christmas recipes.

♥ Lusted after pretty much everything on Ever Ours, particularly their gorgeous blouses....

♥ Lost two hours of my Friday night to Fantasy Shopper, meaning I not only splashed (virtual) cash on there but found several things I now want to buy in real life.  Top of the list being this Lambswool cardigan from Uniqlo - wish they had it in my size!

♥ Went for date night with Tom to Christchurch Harbour Hotel - I had three courses including steak and chocolate parfait and then practically had to be rolled to bed! We go there as we get 50% off with our Taste Card (a card we pay £30 a year for as it gets us 50% off loads of restaurants). I noticed that Taste Card are doing a two month free trial at the moment if anyone else is interested - you don't need to leave credit card details they just send you a card to try.

♥ Bought a printer - most people might find this ridiculously boring but the thought of being able to make gift tags and cards for Christmas is getting me excited! My Mum also sent me a link to a Youtube video about how to print on fabric which will definitely come in handy for homemade Christmas presents!

(I have mentioned Christmas twice already in a post about things I did the first week in October, um.. oops).

♥ Pulled out about half of my clothes and a quarter of my books to take to the car boot sale in a couple of weeks.  Feeling the need for a very thorough purge of all the things I don't wear/use/read.

♥ Watched a documentary called Deep Water about the Sunday Times Golden Globe Yacht Race and in particular about Donald Crowhurst, who entered the race and then secretly abandoned the race and was reporting false positions to make it look like he was actually going round the world.  Eventually he went mad and disappeared.  It's such a tragic story and a really well executed documentary - we rented it from Lovefilm.

Hope you've all had lovely weeks!

  2. I just clicked the link for Fantasy Shopper then had to quickly press the back arrow as I realised that I would get completely sucked in and end up on there for HOURS... Amazing.

  7. Sounds like a good week to me- you seem really revitalised and enthused since your trip- really pleased for you, and hope the new position is going well.

    Glad also that I'm not the only one thinking about Christmas too- I'm not the klind of organised who buys gifts all through the year- lacking space being part of the problem, but I did start planning ideas today!

  9. Awhh what a nice week! That dish sounds delicious! My parents got me one of those taste cards last year, I actually didnt get round to using it though as I didnt like any of the options around my area! I saw Katie's post too and the baking mad hamper section is added to my Christmas spreadsheet!!! I have already started making presents and listening to Christmas songs!!! xxx
