My mum brought me some pinks yesterday. This one is called 'sugar plum'.
The postman also brought me something pink. My Gudrun Sjödén tunic.
It is the most comfortable thing to wear.Very figure friendly. I love it. Only snag are these lovely big pockets - positioned exactly to catch on my door handles as I go through. I'll have to watch I don't rip them off.
I'm saving like mad to buy more clothes from Gudrun Sjödén.
These vibrant pink flowers are sweet williams bought last Friday. They were half-price and hardly any of the flowers had opened. I didn't hold out much hope of them lasting very long. They have surprised me though by putting on quite a show.
We are still enjoying the contents of our Riverford meat box which I posted about last week. I expect the price of it made some of you gasp. Well, it's making us gasp too, especially when I realised that this particular month will bring three boxes not two. I mentioned that the amount of meat was more than we are used to. It is. We like to alternate meat meals with fish and veggie meals. We are used to it and I believe it is a healthy habit as well as good for the purse. It is nice to know my kids will be able to make themselves a balanced meal without meat. So I have cancelled my order of meat boxes. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the quality of the meat from Riverford, but there's no getting round the fact that it is expensive.
If you have been inspired to bake After Eight cookies may I recommend you use the other half of the box of After Eights in my chocolate lollies. Break them up and stir into the mixture as it heats. It results in the most marvellous mint-chocolate ice lollies. Slurp slurp :o)
