WHITSTABLE

Whitstable

This weekend my mum and stepdad came to visit and we decided to take them out to the Kent coast for the day and visit lovely little Whitstable.

Yes, I know what you're thinking, Whitstable in February is just as cold as you think it would be - perhaps even colder! But we'll put up with all kinds of weather for a bag of chips.

BEDROOM UPDATE

drawers

At the weekend I decided to update the little corner I have in our bedroom. In a small flat its hard to have whole areas of space as our own as every little bit is precious potential storage but I have the space next to our bed and Steven has a similar size spot in the living room for his guitar stuff.

I originally had a desk in the corner which I kept so much crap on - letters piled up, unread magazines and the underneath was even worse with stacked up craft stuff and scraps of fabric, I had intended to sit at the desk and write blog posts and edit pictures but the sofa is just too comfy! - and I sit at a desk all day so thats the last thing I want to be doing in the evening.

I wanted to clear the corner up a bit and actually put some of the crap away so Steven bought me a cheapo chest of drawers from Ikea and had them built ready for when I got home from work one day. So I decided to do the first bit of diy since moving in this flat and I painted it in a nice pale grey colour, painting counts as diy, right?

I used that Annie Sloan paint which worked a treat but is pretty expensive, I may have a go at making some myself after finding a million tutorials on Pinterest. 
Now I've got the painting bug and half a tin of paint left nothing in our flat is safe! (Already done the mirror frame).

A DAY TO MYSELF

Hope you had a good weekend, it certainly flew by for me but I got a fair bit done so not all bad. Steven has to work one Saturday a month so that means...I get the whole flat to myself! For a whole day! It's quite a rare occurrence when you're living with someone that you get the flat to yourself for longer then an hour here or there, they are certainly very cherished moments! (ps. I love living with Steven)

First things first, a lie in and then catching up with all the internet things I missed during the week.

Feb weekend to myself

Breakfast in bed (bacon and cream cheese bagel) with a cuppa...and catching up with more internet things.

A bit of updating to the flat - I have more pics to show you of the finished thing so once they're sorted I shall share.

Feb weekend to myself

A Tunnocks and tea break

A spot of knitting, definitely score more cool points for matching my nail polish to my wool.

And a bit of tidying.

Yikes! When did I become so old?! Hope you had a good one.

COPENHAGEN - PART 2

Copenhagen

On the Sunday (and our last day) we luckily woke up to beautiful clear blue skies in Copenhagen, so we decided to do as much walking as we could to make up for the snow the day before

We set off to Jaegersborgadde as I'd heard good things about the area, we took our time strolling there and taking in all the buildings and sights.

Once we arrived our first stop was Meyers Bakery for a pastry and a cinnamon bun to share, I mean...just look at them!
