Weekend Fun

Mansfield Park is just starting so I've kicked back with my laptop to tell you about a lovely weekend I've had

Saturday was spent having lunch with my friends mum to plan her Bridal Shower followed by a trip to the library


I've finally caught on to ordering books into my library online so I can now read those I want to rather than buying! Yes it's the time to be thrifty if I'm going to get that deposit together!!

Hmmm but saying that how could I refuse this cute hen in TK Maxx at only £4.99!!!


And yes they are Cath Kidston pillowcases you can see.... £3.99 is just a crazy price for them and I have to thank my mum for buying them for me. I'm so pleased to have finally picked up some CK goodies from TK Maxx... I know some of you ladies have been lucky in the stores but I know myself it isn't an urban legend!

Next stop was the cinema with my mum to see The Young Victoria


A great film, whilst slow in parts I was completely caught up with what was on screen and mum commented she felt it finished and she wasn't ready for it to end!

Today was spent with friends over lunch and Disney Trivia Pursuit... and tomorrow, well that's back to work of course!

Love the hen. The forgotten garden is a great book, have you read her first book?? I'm going to see if I can order in books, what a great idea :)

I still don't believe it's possibly to get anything CK in our TKMaxx! Sounds like a good weekend, I really want to watch that film.

Sounds like a lovely weekend. I have that Forgotten Garden book which I still haven't started although I loved the first one The House at Riverton. Must get back into my reading but spend far too much time reading blogs instead. Love your TKMaxx bargains, although I have never seen any CK bedding in mine! X

What a great weekend, love the hen. I've yet to find any CK things in TK Maxx. Didn't know you could order library books online must see if my library does that.

Well done with the ck finds in tkmaxx. I have heard they are going to have more in there over the next month or two.
Love the egg hen too (I have two and they are temptingly collectable)

What a sweet friend you are to meet with your friend's Mom to plan her bridal shower!
That film looks like one I would love to see! I hope it comes over here! I haven't seen previews for it over here, bummer!

The hen is darling. Enjoy reading all those books! :)

I'm dying to see Young Victoria! It's not showing in the suburbs so I would have to go into the city...

Love your buys honey....you definitely have style and an eye for a bargain :)

I went to see 'The Young Victoria' as well and was very shocked about the shooting - I had no idea about that! Did you? I needed a tissue!

Loving your blog honey - I havn't been leaving comments lately...but you know I am a fan of yours :)

Love Happy x
