Moo Cards

My free Moo Cards came today WOO HOO

I am so over the moon with how well they came out but the light is not good tonight so I am not so happy with the photos I have taken of them (will take some better one another night)

...was such a lovely day. For once I had a Bank Holiday off work and I actually relaxed.

I watched every episode of Sophie Dahl's new TV show whilst the rain beat down outside.
I had been longing for a day at home wrapped up in a big jumper while it rained and finally I got it.

Once the rain had cleared up a bit, I ventured out to buy food.

Along my way I saw something beautiful...

...and something funny...

I also found an amazing book, just the sort of faith restorer I needed to remind me I am not just a stressed girl in a suit. It's called "The Thrift Book: How to Live Well and Spend Less" by India Knight and (I've not gotten too far through it yet) it's fantastic.

Meat Free Monday

This week's Meat Free Monday dinner was inspired by Miss Sophie Dahl and her new TV Series.

I decided to try her Lentil Cottage Pie and even Mikey (massive meat eater and massive lentil hater) really liked it.

Doesn't look too appetising but it gives that lovely cosy feeling Cottage Pie should!

Lunch with LazyGiraffe

Today was a lovely day (despite work being manic) I met up with LazyGiraffe (Deepa) and went to this gorgeous place just opposite work called Origin 8.

I had a delicious Smoked Salmon and Cous Cous salad and bought some Garlic Stuffed Olives to take home (which Mikey loves) and a White and Dark Chocolate Mousse type Pudding which I ate on the train home.

I then finally (after what feels like weeks) cooked a "proper" BIG yummy meal of Free Range Chicken Smothered in Buffalo Wings Sauce with French Fries, Crunchy Salad and Creamy Coleslaw.

Ohhhh I almost forgot, and first thing this morning (yes 5am) I ordered my Moo Cards :D I thought I had missed the deadline for the free ones but luckily I had not.
