Over the weekend I caught up with a very good friend, we went to Bakerie in Manchester city centre for lunch. I highly recommend a visit if you’re in the area. The lime and chilli prawns on toast were amazing, expecially washed down with a cherry bellini. I went Altrincham Vintage Market on Sunday and wandered around many beautiful stalls including Vintage Belle Candles where I treated myself to these gorgeous candles. An outdoor ‘Citronella and lemonade’ and a ‘Bartlett pear.’ I’m so happy with them and it’s good to know that when I‘ve used them, I can take them back and get them refilled.
I also had a visit from my dad who brought along my new greenhouse that he made, do you like it? I’m very pleased with it and can’t wait to get back out in the garden and grow some new plants.
This weekend I was also given a rather nice Inspiring Blog Award from Roootreee Blog. I’d like to thank her for this marvellous award, I love to hear from my readers and it’s so nice to think that they find my blog inspiring. She has a great blog and sells some wonderful hand painted kitchenwares in her shop too. I urge you all to wander over and take a look.
