Sick Saturday

Its a beautiful sunny weekend in London and my husband is ill.
He has man flu (a common garden variety cold) He has snorted,groaned,
coughed and spluttered ALL day long. In hindsight I should have gone out
and enjoyed the glorious sunshine but decided to stay home and look after
him (seeing as though we are newly wed!) I fed him good food in bed all day.
Breakfast-3 pancakes with Norwegian goat cheese and jam.
Lunch- Cabbage,potato and panchetta soup
Dinner-Cous cous with roasted veg and moroccan sausages
and as I type he is cocooned in a blanket eating Swedish fish. I think Im seeing
an improvement in his cold so I wont be playing nurse and waitress tomorrow!

Leaving London....

We had been dreaming of moving to Henrik's home country of Norway for
the last year our so. I had this whole Scandinavian dream,living by the fjord,
living a much simpler life,simple minimalistic Scandi lifestyle.....
But.... after spending alot of time away this summer all over Europe we have
decided to stay in London. I think we are not ready for the isolation that leaving
this great city would bring us.

Lubrin, Spain (part2)

Henrik and I were bbq freaks on our honeymoon (why is it all men love to bbq?)
We bbq'd everything! Best of all were peaches & plums. We pulled out the stone,sprinkled
a little bit of brown sugar in the hole and left on the bbq for about 40 mins. Heavenly.

Wedding birds

We gave away these sweet little birds at our wedding made by the very lovely Sarah Parrott.Our guests loved them and some were seen stuffing several into their pockets! Visit Sarah's wonderful shop to feast your eyes on her wares.
You will be glad you did!

A weekend in Malmo,Sweden. Wonderful Scandinavian design shops. I spent way too much money and ate too much salty licorice.
