Week in Photos #43

 New duvet set from Primark. Its reversible and I couldn't decide which side I preferred so went for both! One side for the pillows, the other for the blanket.
 Crumpets with loads of butter and jam, my breakfast almost everyday over the holidays.
 I've been playing with my new camera loads this week. I'm slowly getting used to it but am still finding it quite difficult to get clear shots, damn you shaky hands!
 I used my Sigma Dry 'n' Shape this week, will review it soon.
 Salmon with new potatoes and lemon, yum.
 We put the Space Invaders wall art that I got for Spencer for Christmas up. He is very pleased with it, it sets his 'games room' off brilliantly.
 Posh biscuits and coffee, amazing.
 Salmon and Philadelphia baguette, the new Philadelphia with grilled peppers, pretty tasty.
These are a few of the presents that I bought Spencer for Christmas, GlossyBox for men, Cursory notes and a mandle (both from Firebox).
I'm rubbish and failed to take any photos NYE so am relying on friends uploading them to facebook. So far only one has surfaced. If more appear I may share them with you next week.
We went to the local pub where they had a live band playing and then back to a house party, it was a very good night.

 I've been eating chocolate and blogging - two of my favourite things :)
 We had a feast yesterday! Spencer was hungover and I was tired as we didn't get in until 4am so we cooked up a load of party food and half a Calzone pizza each - delicious!
 We had a smoothie maker for Christmas, today's smoothie is strawberries, banana and milk. I don't eat anywhere near enough fruit or have anywhere near enough calcium so I'm hoping to use this smoothie maker to combat both of these problems.
 
 Today has been a complete mixture weather wise, rain followed by bright blue sky skies, then hailstones.
Kitty being quiet for once!

I've been considering going to TOWIB in London on 11 February, is anyone else going?

  4. Love all of these photos - the duvet set is lovely, might have to pick one of those up myself!
    Lots of yummy food in this post too - I do love crumpets and jam (my other half has crumpets and marmite but I insist they should have sweet toppings!) and I love that Christmas is a good excuse to eat lots of mini foods - yum!

  7. Thanks :)
    I don't fancy marmite on crumpets, marmite is meant for toast and only toast! I usually just have butter on my crumpets but have been enjoying the ole jam!
    Christmas really is mini food time xx
