I attended a fabulous Christmas event at Booths supermarket in Penrith on Tuesday evening and picked up a copy of their product catalogue for the festive season. I will write about the event next week, but the items they stock are of absolutely fabulous quality and are produced locally. The catalogue also contains a handful of recipes that look delicious so I can’t wait to try some of those out.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve set myself the task of watching series 1-6 of The Walking Dead. I’ve now finished series 5… I’m really enjoying watching it and can’t switch it off! I love Darryl (I hope he doesn’t die, as that seems to be the theme of the show) and Carol too. It’s really very gory and grim though, so won’t include a trailer!
We invited some of A’s family over for Sunday dinner at the weekend. I made a joint of roast pork with crackling, Yorkshire puddings and vegetables for everyone, then followed it up with a batch of homemade chocolate brownies and Cornish ice cream.
It’s not often I get dressed up – I’m often in my joggers with my hair tied back… But I did make an effort and slapped on a bit of make-up for the Christmas event earlier in the week. I wore a burgundy crepe top from New Look with a gold and white statement necklace from Dorothy Perkins.
I’ve just downloaded the Now That’s What I Call Disney album to make car journeys a bit more fun for O (and me!). This is the first track. I’m sure most mums are totally sick of this song, but O has never been Frozen-obsessed. I must admit, I think I sing this song pretty well! Love a good singalong…
It’s been a couple of weeks since I took part in the #LittleLoves linky. I always have the best intentions! Since my last post, I’ve attended a festive themed BlogOn conference in Manchester. I had such a great time and enjoyed meeting up with old blogging friends and meeting new ones too. It’s always quite a bizarre first interaction in person with another blogger – you know so much about them and chat through a keyboard, but that first encounter in ‘real life’ is a bit odd! I never feel like I’m established enough to speak to others and doubt they’ll even recognise my blog name never mind recognise my face or name.
Anyway. Q was with me the whole day and he was an absolute diamond. The goody bag was epic and I wouldn’t hesitate to go back. I’ll be booking my ticket for the May event as soon as they’re released!
Linking up with Morgana over at Coffee Work Sleep Repeat for the #LittleLoves link-up.
