Christmas starts tomorrow!!

By Alice on Sunday November 30th 2008 at 18:30

We went off on a date with the Snow Dome in Tamworth on Friday evening and I tried skiing again. It was REALLY busy - and brilliant - -  after a wobbly start…

I could hardly walk the next day. We woke up late at precisely 11:11am and raced off for a free breakfast at Cafe Rouge before 12 noon (with thanks to Bonne Maman Jam’s vouchers - - which is my favourite jam in the whole wide world).

a day off

I had the day off on Wednesday and went early morning riding through lots of mud and branches - it was great fun.

I then raced back to meet Em and we went into Worcester for lunch and shopping! We had a great time…This is a nice flyer from Topshop - I got a new bag with a surprise opening effect!

gild the lily!

...most of my weekend was spent in front of the tv or washing up! The chocolate fridge cake was a success - - -  four pieces went with us to Rob & Laura’s for dinner on Friday evening where we also had a yummy chilli. We left Jemima dog in one room and Jemima cat (Rob and Laura’s kitten) in another - how funny that they’re both called Jemima!

last of the wedding presents!

By Alice on Thursday November 20th 2008 at 15:24

We went out late night shopping in Debenhams last night - to spend the last of our wedding money. We got 2 dressing gowns, Mark got some jeans, I got some earrings and we also got a seasgrass trunk for the top of Mark’s wardrobe (nice!). I’m reading this book now - and chose it because I LOVE the cover!

We went to Mum and Tony’s for dinner on Sunday evening and got a present from their Eden Project visit…some Cornish line-caught mackerel - yum!
I like the packaging - but I haven’t actually tried them yet…

This is nice beer packaging too - Brahma beer - Cerveja do Brasil…

A weekend at home

By Alice on Sunday November 09th 2008 at 18:37

We spent all weekend at home and only popped out to walk Jemima / get some food - it was nice! I had a fair bit of work to do - and Mark made a wardrobe smaller to fit into our bedroom alcove! On Friday we had M&S dinner for two for £10, on Saturday night I cooked spag bog, and on Sunday Mark cooked a special pork roast dinner from the good food calender for 2009!!

It was A-mazing!
