Friday Round Up

There are a lot of food photos this week aren't there??

Having finally got rid of my cold (YAY!!) I'm feeling like a new person! I celebrated with a relaxing bath and pamper session with my new Elemis goodies which I mentioned in my Round Up post a couple of weeks ago. I'd neglected myself a bit whilst I was ill, I was just too tired and achey to bother doing anything that wasn't absolutely necessary, I knew I looked a wreck but I didn't really care!

Big news this week is that one of our three Buff Orpington chickens has decided that it's a boy. It's a bit late bearing in mind that they are nine months old now and it's weird that it's never crowed once and doesn't have much of a comb. But it's definitely a boy. I've caught it getting fruity with the bantam hens, the little devil. So I've floated the idea of getting rid of all three Buffs or just eating the cockerel (!) but Matt's not 100% on board with either idea so we'll see what happens ...

Speaking of chickens, Wilson has been in the bad books this week. I called him in the other day and he didn't appear, I called him a few more times and tried to stay calm - I knew he wouldn't have wandered off (the dogs don't leave the garden even when all the gates are open) and I knew he hadn't been stolen (no one can get near the house without the dogs going crazy at them) so ... where on earth was he? I went out to explore and found him in the shed, eating freshly laid eggs!! The little sod!! He had the telling-off of his life and hasn't set paw near the shed since. Let's hope it stays that way!

I had my hair cut and coloured this week and feel so much better for it. I'd been putting it off because I wasn't sure what colour to go for but my grey roots had got so bad that I had to commit to something! So I went for a dark brown again and I'm really happy with it. The worst of the damaged bits are gone now and the rest of it looks shinier and healthier than it's been in ages :)

This weekend I'll be attacking the painting at the new house again, I'm feeling really positive about it at the moment. I'll be studying my heaps of interiors magazines and books to get ideas for bathroom decor, it's harder than you might imagine. I might have a peek at the websites of our favourite hotels for inspiration too, I need all the help I can get 

We'll be chowing down on pizza with my sister, brother in law and nephew tomorrow night, I'm looking forward to seeing them all. We haven't all been together since Christmas so it will be good to catch up

What do you have planned for the weekend?

  1. Hooray for feeling better! Glad your cold's gone, they are a nuisance! I find it so relaxing looking through interior magazines, I love bathrooms with mixes of white and natural wood, maybe a duck egg blue and some wicker storage! xx

    1. Haha! I've been saying they look delicious for months! I'm basing our bedroom n a hotel room too, I'm so unimaginative! But I guess these places pay interior designers so we don't have to, right?? xx
