Shopping Therapy & Giveaway!

Keep reading for an exciting giveaway!

But first… my day!

Hubby and I were up early to head into town for some shopping. First stop, Giraffe for breakfast!

I had a Moroccan Mint tea to drink.


And 2 poached eggs on Focaccia with mushrooms to eat!


I love ordering poached eggs in restaurants – mainly cos I can’t cook them myself! There were perfect, barely set whites and gorgeous runny yolks.

Loved the tea too – it was really refreshing with real mint leaves floating around.

Then off to the shops! We picked up some new curtains for the lounge plus some food, and made a start on my sister-in-laws birthday present.

We weren’t in a hurry to get home as we knew we weren’t going to leave the house again. So we called into Costa Coffee for a pick me up!

Loved this – the gingerbread syrup gave it a mild spiciness!

Back home we started on some chores and put up the new curtains which look fab! I also started tidying our spare rooms ready for my parents, sister and niece coming to stay on Thursday.

After my big breakfast I didn’t get hungry for lunch until after 2. We shared a carton of this New Covent Garden Leek & Potato soup which was on offer in Tesco


Made a great speedy lunch with a couple of small slices of granary bread


Loved the flavour of this soup – rich and warming on a cold winter day!

A lot more sorting went on this afternoon – loads of bits to send to  the charity shop (and loads more space in the house!)

I’ve also had a play on Wii Fit Plus this afternoon! Love this game! I think its loads more fun than Wii Fit – the games are more fun and I loved the snowball fighting game! Thinking this will be a great game to get us more active in the evenings!

Tonight we have plans for home made pizzas and to watch Food Inc. Really looking forward to the film after seeing so many reviews on it on blogs last year.

  1. What a great giveaway!! My husband likes runny eggs too – me, not so much but they always look pretty in pictures!

    Hope you are having a great weekend – I make pizza almost every Friday night – hope yours turns out great!

  2. I actually made pizza and garlic fingers last night, it’s one of my favorite comfort foods. I agree on the runny eggs, I love it when they run all over the plate and you have to use bread to soak it up. Have a great night
