The gate don’t creak for want of you

When I saw Rosie from The Londoner’s post about these ‘bermuda green’ jeans from ASOS (£16 – what a bargain) I knew they were the perfect addition to my wardrobe to make me feel excited about Spring being on its way! I wore them with my new shirt from Princes Vintage (only around the house mind you) but when I asked Tom to take a photo of me he politely informed me after a few takes that ‘the shirt doesn’t go’ so I swapped it for a different top.  Alas I didn’t realise until I put the photos on my computer that the second photo was completely out of focus; general outfit photo fail really!

trousers and shoes, as before | top: h&m

Because I am clearly 27 going on 50, now the evenings have started getting lighter and it’s beginning to warm up a bit, I’ve started thinking about what we can do with the garden this year, and what we can grow in our veggie patch.  Obviously it’s too cold still to plant seeds out there yet so I’ve been starting seeds off in what I’m calling my ‘germinarium’ (yes I am a complete geek).  It’s basically our old fishtank, but with no water in it, and seeds in propagators getting all ready to be planted outside.

We only planted them on Sunday and look at the rocket seeds growing away already! Cool, huh?

On a final note, I’ve been meaning to share with you this amazing cheesecake I made on Saturday night.  I am still doing Jenny Craig so I only allowed myself a little slither but it was absolutely delicious and so easy to make.  You can get the recipe from the BBC Good Food website here.

What are you doing to prepare for Spring? Am I the only one advance buying a new wardrobe?
