A Lovely Day

I have had a lovely day lunching and shopping in town with my friend today

Enjoying cake

As you can see we couldn't decide which to have so we ordered one of each and split them!

I got lucky in a charity shop and picked up these 4 bowls

(sorry the photo isn't very good!)

I've got hundreds of plates but always struggle to find bowls so these were a good find

The latest issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine - I just love this magazine

Can you see the cute mug.... £1 from Tesco - bargain!!!!

We visited the local library and I stocked up on MORE books for the train and even one on photoshop to see if I can teach myself a bit more about it

I hope you all had a lovely Saturday too

Cake looks yummy, thats the sort of thing I do, half each. Although my very worst habit is I taste a bit of everyones dinner, just to see what its like of course, drives hubby nuts. xxxx

That's one of the nicest things about tea with a friend - you don't have to choose just one cake! HA! I saw the mugs - very cute but a bit of a naughty copy! Your parcel is on the way! No peeking before Saturday! t.x
