Photos from the weekend.

7.7.11

The weather came up trumps last weekend so it was an excuse to get out and about and soak up a few rays. Lola is a little sun worshipper. She always finds a little sunny spot and won't move until I bring her inside for some shade - I don't want the little tinker to overheat!


Saturday morning called for a quick dash to drop some things off at a local charity shop and a trip to Meadowhall (so disappointed with Primark's offerings. I didn't see anything nice apart from a little daisy print blouse and some pants!) It was far too nice to be stuck inside so we hot footed it home to walk Lily and Lola then had a wander to a nearby pub where we sat outside and relaxed for a little while. I had a shandy and a goats cheese/caramelised onion ciabatta with chips - yum!

 
 

We took full advantage of the Marks & Spencer "dine in, two for £10" deal and opted for the raspberry pannacotta for pud. It was de-lic-ious.


I took a few snaps of sunny Sheffield while we waited for Race for Life to start on Sunday. I am a newbie to Sheffield having only just moved to Rotherham to be with Jonathan but the city centre seems nice from what I've seen.

 

The weekend ahead is approaching fast! What are your plans?

  11. That mustard tee is absolutely gorgeous on you! I think our English weather is being so unpredictable at the moment we need to make the most of every time the sun decides to make an appearance! :D

  18. Sounds like a great weekend! I love the M&S dine in for £10 menu, but that's because I am the laziest cook ever! Meant to say ages ago, but I love the glasses! xx
