Snippets




This weekend we've been putting the finishing touches to the new flat, and now that all of our prints are up it really feels like home.
I'm surprised at how quickly I've settled in, and I can't wait to get some photographs together to share.

A few new home additions have been making me smile; in particular the above snaps.

The cactus on the left was a present from a work friend, and within the space of a few days I quickly added the others to the shelf. I've never really been into plants, but I can see a new obsession forming here and I can't wait to build up a whole collection of cute cacti.

The foxy mug is from Sarah of Shark Alley and makes my morning cup of tea even better. I love the illustration so much. These mugs are limited edition so be quick if you'd like to get your hands on one!

And finally, my new favourite cook book. You have to get your hands on it!
After an evening spent book marking pretty much every page, J and I have since made Goats Cheese Gnocchi with home-made Pesto, Macaroni Peas, Rosemary and New Potato Pizza, Herby & Peanuty Noodle salad and Asparagus Pizza - oh yum!
Eating less meat has been a conscious effort on both our parts over the last few months - mainly for ethical reasons but the money saving is definitely a bonus too. This book is chock-a-block with seriously tempting recipes that are easy to cook, and in my normal haphazard way, I just substitute gluten free options wherever needed - it works for me!

  3. I'm building up a wee cactus collection too. I wish my dog would stop going near them though. It's hard to find new places where he can't get them because he's so big. Nightmare!
