Each Sunday I will be rounding up my week and linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberley @Caffeinated Reviewer as well as The Sunday Salon meme hosted by the wonderful Deb @Readerbuzz. Do please pop by their blogs and show them a little love 💗.
Life Last Week
We visited the second Hucknall Food & Drink Festival on Sunday. The cookies and brownies were consumed before I managed to take any photos but they were absolutely delicious! We also purchased mustard and passion fruit curd, not that we plan on eating them at the same time! It was a gorgeous day, even if the temperatures had plummeted and we had to wrap up well.
Yesterday my daughter visited Staffordshire University’s Stafford campus. We set in a fairly heavy snow shower, there was even snow on the carriageway of the motorway! We made it there unscathed, though there were one or two worrying moments along the way – most notably a fallen tree across our side of the road and a very icy hill to navigate to the bottom of. I’m well aware that to most this is a mere smattering of the white stuff, but it’s such a rare event in the UK we just don’t know how to deal with it.
Books Read Last Week
I indulged in two Holiday reads – and absolutely adored both of them. A huge thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read these – though both are currently 99c on Amazon so I’ve bought them too!
Although this is another “seasonal” book, it’s a change of pace (and genre) to my last two reads. I’ve heard good things about this so I’m really hoping I enjoy it!
Looking forward to…
…enjoying these two treats from the Food & Drink market.
… a visit to the hairdressers next Saturday followed by another Uni visit – this time to Huddersfield!
… visiting the Christmas Market at Lincoln.
