Hello there… I hope you are well? This week has been busy but the right kind of busy. You know where you feel like you are being productive, as opposed to feeling overwhelmed and a bit useless! As usual I am linking up with Morgana to share all my #LittleLoves this week!
I have still barely picked up a book in months! I think I spend too much time on my Bloglovin feed reading posts from other lovely bloggers!
Last weekend Mr C and I watched, What Happened, Miss Simone? The documentary about the life and times of singer and political activist Nina Simone. It was really interesting. I have always been a fan of her music, but I did not know about her role in the Civil Rights Movement in America. Very interesting to watch. (It’s on Netflix if you have it!)
I also saw the Red Arrows giving a display over Carrickfergus. Those guys sure know how to fly!
We wanted to see the Tall Ships leaving Belfast Lough, but it was such a grey day it was really hard to get a good view. It did remind me a little of pirate ships coming in from the mist though!
Following on from my film, I had to listen to some of Nina Simone’s music. That lady had depth! If, like Mr C, you think you don’t know who she is, you are probably wrong! Have a listen!
This time next week I will officially be on a hen weekend! I finally found a dress that I was happy with, only the neckline didn’t please me. It was too high, and I felt like it was strangling me. So I took it down to Stitched Up in Ballymena and they lowered the neckline for the small fee of £6. I thought that was quite good, and I may even have some photo’s in a couple of weeks!
It’s been all about the sausages this week. I made a sausage and pasta dish, which was lovely. You can find the recipe here.
And I also found these slimming world free on extra easy sausages, in Iceland. I expected them to taste like vegetarian sausages, and to be honest they did. They were still good, but they didn’t taste like 97% pork.
We finally got the finished floors put in our extension. Now we have to wait, probably 6 – 8 weeks for them to dry. In the meantime I could actually start painting in some places!
Now, who wants to babysit while I get on with the Master bedroom???
