Everyday I dream of having our own place and our very own garden. Until then though this is my little garden.
This weekend we went to Oxford to stay with my sister and brother-in-law. We had such a wonderful stay. On the Saturday we walked into the centre and stopped off at the river for a spot of punting! The last time I went on a boat it was a bit of a disaster so I was a little nervous. We paid for an hour and it was brilliant! Stu and Jon punted us sisters along and it really was very lovely. We did have a few hiccups – we ran aground at one point and Stu only just escaped falling in. After punting we strolled along the river around Christ Church College and to finish off we stopped for a drink on the way home at Kazbar.
Below are some photos of the white chocolate and hazelnut cookies I baked on Sunday. Sometimes I wake up on a Sunday and I think ‘if there’s one thing I want to do today, it’s make some cookies’. Because my willpower is so appalling I tend to make a batch, keep a couple aside for myself and take the rest into the office. They’re soon snapped up there and always very much appreciated.
I know you shouldn’t tempt fate but recently I’ve had a great excuse to go wild in Baby Gap, The White Company, JoJo Maman Bebe and all other baby related stores! It’s pay day tomorrow so I’m planning a lunch expedition to buy a few of my favourite things. I already have this cute navy and white stripe cardy from Baby Gap.
I’ve just re-read this post and think I should make it clear that I am not expecting!
When I was younger my mum used to make us banana milkshakes – it was a clever disguise for us to get 1 of our 5 a day. I’d completely forgotten about them until the other saturday when the memory came back to me. It tastes so good and instantly reminds me of my childhood. It’s simple – 1 banana + milk + blender = fantastic tasting milkshake! Me and my boyfriend are both hooked.
