how can the clouds still have water left in them?

Hello all,

Today I thought I'd give a little update on what I've been up to over the weekend and what my plans are for my last week of being an invalid (I'm SUPER excited to get back to work by the way!!). So the weather has been pretty horrendous to say the least over the last few week. I genuinely can't even comprehend how the clouds can still have rain left in them?


Anyway, this weekend was rather lovely as Jack had the weekend off work (he commutes to London during the week for his postgrad and works all weekend). Those that follow me on Instagram (ohnorachio) will know already that he kicked the weekend off by making me a lovely breakfast of eggy bread, smoky bacon and maple syrup - yum! 


We then jumped in the car to head down to Somerset to pick up the desk of our dreams from the lovely family whom we bought it on eBay from. It's literally our pride and joy and something Jack has been lusting after FOREVER - it's a ridiculously expensive solid oak desk from Habitat that the lovely Ollie sold us for the bargain price of £40! Here is our new baby:



The desk was literally the highlight of the Saturday and we spent most of the afternoon revelling in it's beauty - Jack was desperate for a desk to do his thesis on but we couldn't afford to get a really nice one. 

On Sunday we had my family over for a meal of slow cooked pulled pork and home made pitta and coleslaw and all sorts of lovely things - here is the pork at 9am ready to go into the oven! It was super yum by the way!


Today, I was going to do a test walk into town - ready for going back to work next week - wanted to see if the old knees could take it yet! Sadly, rain stopped play - I was not going to get soaked to the skin and freezing!

So, I decided to start the project I've been wanting to do for ages, as a tutorial for the blog (going up later in the week), and that was to create my lovely sewing machine an attractive new cover as the old plastic white one it came with was looking pretty gross...

Without further ado, here is a sneak peek of said new cover....tutorial to follow :)


Lots more to come this week, hopefully everyone had a lovely weekend and you aren't feeling too down about all this rain!

xo.
