That was the week that was

Time flies when you’re having fun!  Rather than just drop off the face of the earth – or more so than I have done recently – I thought I’d post a quick catch-all catch-up of what’s going on here.  And then hopefully I can do some more detailed posts when I’ve caught my breath!

  • Last Wednesday was our wedding anniversary so the Mr and I cooked dinner together…he did the steaks, I did the pudding.  Sticky toffee pudding to be precise. Because he loves it.  And because I love him.  And because we had it for pudding on our wedding day. It was astonishingly delicious!sticky toffee pudding
  • However it certainly wasn’t as delicious as the dinner we had on Saturday at Northcote.  OMG!    And I had a wine flight as well (The Husband fell on his sword and drove!).  A glass of perfectly matched wine for each course.  And Martinis!  The best dirty Martinis I’ve ever had.Northcote chocolate
  • I made a skirt for Friday. From remnants of my wedding dress. I didn’t get photos on Friday, but I will, I promise.
  • This week I don’t have a car as we sold both our cars at the weekend but only replaced The Husband’s. We didn’t think that through! 😉  It’s very odd not having the luxury of just jumping in the car to go wherever whenever (and I do know how lucky I am to have my own car), but it’s also quite lovely just to walk the kids to school and then come home and stay home. Today I’ve been doing chores, but tomorrow I’m planning to put my kitchen blind on the table and start sewing that.
  • In knitting news I’m making good progress on the second of these mitts.  I’m hoping to finish that this week and send them back to Liz who is going to sew in the ends before I knit up the thumbs. I cannot tell you how grateful I am not to have to sew in all those ends!almost orla mitts

Now…if only I could get some time in daylight to take pictures to share with you!

    Happy anniversary to you both!
    Lovely bit of knitting and I think that’s a wonderful idea, making a skirt from your dress. I look forward to the photos

    OMG – that sticky toffee pudding is my idea of perfection. I love that kind of dessert. I think it looks even better than that gorgeous restaurant plate.

  3. Belated anniversary greetings (we both celebrate in November)! Sounds like a wonderful celebration and you sound so much happier – I do hope you are feeling better now. You’ve been busy again and how wodnerful that you made a skirt from the remnants of your wedding dress, that sounds so romantic 🙂

    • We do! It’s a wonderful month for weddings I think. I’m feeling much better now, thank you. I found the remnants whilst packing up the loft and it seemed so timely that I just had to do something with them.

    Happy Aniversary! Hope you get some wheels soon…

    Happy Anniversary! That pud does look yummy, I’m a complete sucker for traditional English puds. Hope you get a car soon, although I’m also car-less at the moment & quite like being able to say, “sorry – no car, no can do!” and stay home instead & sew! 🙂

  6. Oh but that pudding looks good! I’m glad that you had a wonderful anniversary – you deserve it after being poorly recently. I’m with everyone who is looking forward to seeing that skirt 🙂

    Sounds like a fabulous week, down to the part about not having wheels so you have to walk everywhere (my favorite way to travel). And yes, photos of that skirt, pretty please?

    • Will do!
      I have to say I’d forgotten how much I enjoy walking everywhere. Because we are semi rural we need the car for even simple things like grocery shopping. Before I met The Husband I didn’t have a car for nearly 3 years, but I lived in Guildford then and everything you needed was within 30 minutes walk in any direction. I certainly miss it and am enjoying myself (although I’m feeling the effects of adding over 3 miles a day to my routine! 😉 )

    Happy Anniversary! It sounds like you had a lovely week and two wonderful dinners. Do you have a recipe for the toffee pudding? I can’t wait to see the skirt!
