Monday (& a weekend re-cap).

What a day Saturday turned out to be! After a slow, slow start I had a very busy afternoon, so good that I was on such a high when I get home I told my bf to get ready, I was taking him out for dinner!

We each had a quick shower and change and walked along to the train station. We took the train one stop (to the next town along the coast) and walked to a restaurant that we love. It was steaks and cocktails all round (Blueberry Punch - Yum yum!) and a good night was had by us both. After dinner we were able to sit outside on the terrace, as it was such a nice evening.

Yesterday, Sunday, was a glorious day (warm enough for shorts and a vest top - no picture as it was an outfit suitable for weeding etc) so we spent the entire in the garden getting things in order. It no longer resembles a jungle - thank goodness!
My parents very kindly came around and gave us a hand with all of the clearing out and cleaning up.

An unplanned BBQ was then suggested, so my mum and sister headed out to the supermarket to see what they could get their hands on. We feasted on kebabs with variations of chicken, prawns, chorizo and vegetables, burgers, jacket potatoes, salad and some pasta.
It was so nice to be sitting, eating and cooking outside that I did not want the evening to end. Thankfully my other sister appeared (she had just finished work) with Pimms so we all stayed out a bit longer!

Today, I have the afternoon off, so does my bf. I am not sure what our plans are yet. The weather is not so great. I am needing some colourful basics to brighten up my wardrobe, so we may head to the shops!

Today's outfit consists of:

Skinny jeans - Vila
Cream cami - Hollister
Red & cream stripe cardigan - Vila
Red Ballet flats - Tod's
Silver necklace & bracelets - Tiffany

I really, really love this outfit. It's something I'd wear when it's cool here (care to send some cool weather my way?). The red shoes are gorgeous!

Sounds like you and your BF had a really nice weekend together. What are you growing in your garden?

Thank you, I love the shoes they were a gift from the bf!!

Elisabeth - at the moment all we seem to manage to grow is weeds!! This year we are trying to concentrate on keeping on top of what we have. But, next year I would like to try and introduce a small vegetable patch!
