I have no relevant pictures for this general rambly update so please enjoy these flower shots from the orangery at Belton House, taken on my jaunt with Kelly around the National Trust properties of Lincolnshire yesterday. This is Belton House. More to come later…
Planning… my trip to Barcelona at the end of the month. I’m so excited! We have our flights and our AirBnB booked, so now I’m just looking at activities and places to eat. Mostly places to eat, if I’m honest.
Watching… Celebrity Masterchef, despite the fact I don’t recognise any of the celebrities, who are quite annoying, and it’s actually really stressful watching them struggle through making an omelette. I should probably stop watching it.
Spending… NOTHING. S and I have been spending too much on travel and not enough on savings so I’m on a spending ban for July and August. No shopping other than food, eating out once a week maximum, and definitely no more trips away. Apart from Barcelona. Oh and I’m on the budget menu planning train, too. Any recipe suggestions, sling them my way!
Trying… new recipes when I can. So far: millet-stuffed peppers, home-made spinach and basil pesto, and cashew chicken. I’m proud that two of those are veggie! And plus point, vegetarian recipes are generally heaps cheaper than meaty ones so there you go.
Waiting… for my Australian sister to make it over here. She’s due out this weekend and I’m so excited to see her! I’m also really excited to catch up with my other sister who’s been out visiting her. I’m basically can’t wait to see them both, plus my nephew and niece too.
Sprinkling… brown sugar on everything.
Working… long hours. I really can’t wait for this project to end. Next!
Loving… my makeup purchases from New York. My absolute top favourites at the moment are the Physicians Formula All-In-One Custom Nude Palette for Face & Eyes (longest product name ever?) which is an amazing shimmery box of goodness that you can use as a beautiful highlighter and/or eyeshadow, and the Kat von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper which is a felt tip eyeliner that’s easy to apply even for me and does not budge all day. Oh, and the Living Proof dry shampoo which is another Kerri-fuelled purchase. Thanks girl but you’re going to bankrupt me!
Drinking… at least one Diet Coke a day. Not good, people.
Hoping… that I get to see a bit more of my husband this week.
So, which flower was your favourite?
