GREAT BRITISH BAKE OFF, CALUM SCOTT, FLORA THE FLAMINGO | LITTLE LOVE 35/52
Its F R I Y A Y which only means one thing and thats a LittleLove round up with Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. We have had a fun packed busy week. How hot has it been this week? Its peaked at 35° here and by Thursday I was practically a sweaty mess! Its been so nice to sit in the garden and have a more chilled week than last. We have had playdates with friends and strangely on the hottest day of the week we took G and H to the trampoline park! It was an hour of fun but by the end of it both G and H were so tired and red as tomatoes from all the jumping! Here is what I have been loving this week!
I finished Harry Potter and The Cursed Child and I was pleasantly surprised. I started off feeling hugely let down by it, but 150 pages in it picked up and I couldn’t put it down. Like most people that have read it I will be re-starting at some point books 1-7. It sparked that HP obsession again.
I have also been given The Unmumsy Mum book to read from a friend and I am so eager to get right into it. I have some quiet time over the weekend where we have nothing planned so I may sneak of and steal a few moments to myself to grab a read.
Now the Olympics is over with the TV schedule has resumed back to normal. I have a few things on record to watch, one being One Of Us on BBC. I saw it advertised a few weeks ago and Its one I have been looking forward to.
I cannot not talk about Bake Off! Its back and the first episode was a good one. I am definitely going to be making some of those Jaffa Cakes! Did anyone else see Mr Hollywood dunk his in his tea though?!?! Yuk!
Two songs this week have been a staple on my Playlist. The first is definitely a summer song and has been dancing away in the kitchen whilst I have been making tea!
Secondly I have heard this so much over the last few weeks whilst driving around and I really do like it. Its such a gorgeous song.
I got my legs out this week. It was so hot my theory of staying covered up went completely out the window and I had to wear shorts.
Mr B’s parents came over to help with the garden so I did some lunch and made a victoria sponge. It was a bit of a disaster as the non stick pan wasn’t exactly non stick and it got stuck so I had to patch it together! It tasted ok though!
I am hosting a McMillan coffee morning next week so I have a few bakes up my sleeve. I am hoping the cakes don’t stick to the pan this time though!
We have spent most of the week in the garden. My father in aw came over to cut back a tree that had become rather unruly and I have now got little dangly things hanging from the now accessible branches, including a wind-chime which sounds so lovely when its hit by the breeze. I may not say that in the winter when we have a full on gale outside! We have also bought some bulbs which I have planted around the garden and in some planters so come Spring I will hopefully see some gorgeous plants popping up!
I also cannot mention about Flora the Flamingo.. I have a huge obsession with them and my lovely mum and her husband bought me this garden ornament that I absolutely love. She fits right in next to my Red Robin. I cannot stop looking at her.
Have a lovely weekend!
I am linking up with the ever so lovely Morgana over at her new blog Coffee Work Sleep Repeat for this linky,
