Weekly round-up

I've been a little distracted this week, and off my daily rhythm of blog posting, so here's a little round-up of things so we can all catch up.

Last weekend was spend exploring the new area we've moved to - we went for a little walk and discovered an excellent new pub. We just dipped our tow in the water with a sandwich each, but once we caught sight of the epic Sunday roasts, we knew that the Hit or Miss was going on our list as a regular haunt.

And then Popeye came back from a trip to London with a surprise gift for me - my hopes were high when I clapped eyes on the distinctive purple Liberty bag. And in it was a bottle of Escentric Molecules 01. I'd had this perfume on my wish list for a long time, liking its very subtle and understated fragrance. I've written before on this blog about how I don't get on with strong, overpowering scent so this seemed to be the perfect solution.


We had our first visitors to the new house at the weekend, so Popeye cracked open the cheese and I baked a lemon drizzle cake - which was delicious by the way, but we troughed the lot before I remembered to take a photo. But this is the recipe - I'm no great baker but it turns out great every time, using two lemons for the zest and juice, to make it a little more lemony.

And now we're jumping in the car and heading off to Devon - again! I know! Can't get enough of the place. Have a lovely weekend.
