My Week...

So in a previous post I mentioned that my Grandparents have baby Robbins in their Nestcam box. In anticipation of them hatching we've been popping over a lot to take a look at how they are doing. At the moment the mum is just sitting on the eggs. I tried to get a picture of when she gets up for a look around. It's a little blurry but you can still see her red breast.

I'll try and get some better photos this weekend (hopefully they would of hatched by then!). 


In other news....

With all this sudden warmth and sunshine we are getting I decided it was about time I put my winter clothes away and got my summer ones out. I do this because there would literally be no space for both in my wardrobe...and it's also nice to get a little surprise. You'll often hear me say "Oooh I completely forgot about that!!"

This plastic clothes folder is soo handy! I got it for Ian for Christmas (as he likes to be super organised) and since then it has been used immensely. It makes clothes folding so easy and it compacts my tops to a tiny neat pile.

The clothes then go into a vacuum bag and wont be seen again till Autumn time...bye bye cosy jumpers!


We have been enjoying this gorgeous weather with lovely food and making up for it by walking a lot! I love walking on a balmy evening with this crazy dog...he has not been complaining one bit.

I prefer to eat lighter in the summer. Salads are welcome as a side and a side only...I cannot just eat it on it's own.

Homemade Pesto & Mozerella pizza with rocket

 It's always fun trying new flavours when it's warm...and secretly imaging your on a Mediterranean holiday somewhere with an ice cold drink.

Chicken, Cous Cous and a Greek Salad

I am so happy it's Friday. Tonight me & the OH are having a mini bake-off (we are wild I know!). We are going to baking cookies and freezing them in advance for a charity cream tea which is in a few weeks time. I will of course have to try some just to make sure they taste right ; ).

Happy Friday all!
