Happy St Patrick’s Day! I’ve been sick all week and selfishly refused to take off work and not spread my germs around, so I’ve been coming home, surrounding myself in a nest of tissue and falling asleep on the sofa. Sam’s a lucky guy to have such a classy lady. But regardless, life has been pretty good these past two weeks!
10 Things That Have Made Me Happy Recently
>>> I baked homemade Dutch oven bread (recipe coming imminently) and used some of the leftovers to toast for turkey bacon, avocado and egg brekkie. It was delicious. Here are some photos if you don’t believe me:
>>> I received some absolutely stunning flowers from work. You can see them on my instagram feed, if you missed it.
>>> I saw “50 Shades” at the discount movie day in our local cinema. It was a million percent ridiculous, but also unintentionally hilarious. Also Jamie Dornan does this crazy push-up thing and I thought it had to be a stunt double, but it’s really him.
>>> When we were in Scarborough for the weekend, we were able to meet up with family at LoveBrew for Spanish Chips. I HIGHLY recommend them.
>>> Danielle came to York for Sunday lunch round ours (and a trip to the National Railway Museum). It is great to have friends in the area, especially ones that plot kidnapping Emma with me.
>>> We had the best time at the Ox Pasture Hall Hotel over the weekend. You can read yesterday’s post all about it. That tasting menu? Absolutely dreamy!
>>> Hotel Chocolat sent me their Mother’s Day sleekster to taste test – it’s fab and I’m surprised that I don’t look like a chocolate now from eating so many.
>>> Now that some of Project Runway is on UK Netflix, I’ve been rewatching old episodes. It’s so good. I still love Mondo after all this time.
>>> Lindsay is pretty much the best and I came home from work with a box of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies awaiting me. Best day ever!
>>> Watching Crufts last weekend filled me with joy. That giant English sheepdog was amazing!
What are you up to this weekend? Did anything exciting happen this week?
