Week 41

What a lovely week it was ... I got to spend lots of time with friends.  So here's a round up.
Firstly, I had my usual R&D with Emma ... I've worked it out, that we've been meeting at the same place, same time, same day ... pretty much the same cake lol ... for nearly 10 years.  How scary is that.  

I also called into see the ever decreasing Jo, at her office.  I'm totally in awe of how well she's been doing at slimming world.   I also got to spend time with Maria, when we walked the bears in a local park. Such a lovely lovely day.

This week I also started changing over my home decor to autumn/winter. I do so love this season.

I've also got my paint brush out again! ... Actually, I don't think I've put it away since painting the kitchen.  First up, was a little unit I found in the charity shop, while dropping off another box of declutting haul.  I really do need to drop and run lol.  Anyway, this unit was to house my mugs (I'll share a finished picture in another post).  Simon also did a little IKEA hack for me, on our floating shelves.  All of which I know love.

Next up was a trip to London for me.

My first point of call was Fortnum and Mason where I met Simon. Oh I love that shop so much.  They even had their Christmas shop out, and I may have bought a little something.  Next I had my first Pumpkin Latte of the season and then a little trip to Anthropologie (again, a favourite shop).

Next was on to meet up with my lovely friend Carol.  I met her first nearly 2 years ago! ... Yes, she was the lady we got the bears from.  Honestly, I'm so lucky that I still get to see her as we get on so so well.  She took me to Cabages & Roses, a shop I've been dying to see. It was lovely, but I was a little sad as I had expected more house wears, and apparently they've stopped stocking them now, as John Lewis does that.  Still, I had a lovely lovely day.

There you have it, my weekly roundup.  This week, is already looking good, and lots of lovely things are being planned.
