Make Yourself At Home
Isn't that such a lovely saying? I love cosy homely things and when I spotted this mug in John Lewis I decided to treat myself to it, I liked the sentiment behind it, and I had chipped a few older mugs the other week. I had been feeling a little down, and although I'm not one to go shopping to make myself feel better, I thought I'd pop some cheap yet pretty chocolates into my basket too.
I love love love turkish delight, I love rose flavoured anything, and these were so prettily packaged (and quite reasonable too) that I went for these. I have been having one every now and then as I don't want to eat my way through them, I want to savour them, and enjoy every bite! And rather perfectly, it turns out no one else at home likes rose flavoured things so they are mine all mine :)
Also rather enjoyable was this cake I brought home from work. Its a Lemon Drizzle with blackberries running through the middle and has a yummy lemon icing too. This is one of my favourites, not only to eat but to make too!
Cake and chocolate aside, I have eaten some salad this week, although we are no longer in 'salad season', I do like something on the side of my pasta bake! Comfort food :) We also tried some fancy pink lemonade this week which was gorgeous!
Lots and lots of cups of tea have been consumed, I love a mug of tea in the morning, but in the evening its nice to share a pot of tea in a dainty little cup.
Now I must bake something yummy and delicious to go on my new glass cake stand (its from the new Kirsty Alsopp for M&S range) and is waiting patiently for a pretty cake to top it off.
