I don’t often go to M&S Food Hall (far too much temptation in one place – get thee behind me, Satan), but when I popped in last week to pick up some bits and bobs for my cocktail evening, I treated myself to this salad for lunch:
And while I was waiting at the checkout, I couldn’t resist picking up these little pots of yumminess for Will:
Like I said, far too much temptation …
Moving on, do you remember I wrote about a vintage dress I picked up by Horrockses Fashions a couple of weeks ago? Well, while I was researching it, I discovered there was a book all about the company, so I ordered a copy from the library.
It is a beautiful coffee-table type book, and is full of vintage loveliness – just look:
I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours flicking through it, and learnt a lot in the process as well.
William finally got the cup he won for being Year 6 Scholar last year, and brought it home earlier this week:
I am a very proud mummy, and love that the winner’s name is engraved on it each year.
(I’ve blurred out the surnames on purpose – they are written in full in real life!)
Having waited very VERY patiently for Season 6 of Grey’s Anatomy to become available in this country (it’s been available everywhere else, even FRANCE, for MONTHS), I finally lost patience, as there’s still not a date for it, and Season 7 is already available in the States, for goodness sake, and bought myself a Region 1 boxset of Season 6. Thank heavens for multi-region DVD players.
I’ve only watched the first three episodes so far, but am so enjoying catching up with all my favourite characters again – it really is one of the best series I’ve watched for years.
And finally, at the end of this post of total randomness, new shoes:
A bit of a Chanel vibe going on here, and very on-trend with the block heel, but only £26 from the Next Directory. Really comfortable, too, as Next have wide fit options in loads of their styles these days. Love ’em.
