The newest members of Holmbush Road!

My housemate Helen and I were very excited about our trip to the Asics store on Argyll Street to get fitted out for new running trainers. Having both recently suffered with sore knees and with half marathons approaching we decided it was time to invest in new trainers. We arrived at the store to have our feet scanned, and with various minor abnormalities discovered, we were fitted with the most suitable trainers for our feet and were then filmed running in them. Both happy with our new fit outs our newest family members are now home and have both been broken in!
Also recently purchased for our weekend at Camp Bestival in July is my new Vango tent! I did feel slightly geeky and old one Saturday night when instead of getting ready to out and party I decided that buying my tent online was a far more important activity!! She/he has yet to be named and as I come from a family who sadly names everything any suggestions would be greatly received......... :-)

Yippeeee its Friday!

I am literally about to head to work but wanted to write a quick post to say


I have never been so glad its Friday! I have had a very busy and fun week catching up with friends, going to gigs and design evenings and tonight is my first night in! Ok I know its Friday that you should usually go out but I think its time I gave myself a much earned night on the sofa relaxing and chatting with my lovely housemate Hels who I have hardly seen all week.

Anyway I hope you all have a great end to the week. I will be updating you properly over the weekend with what I've been up to. I will leave you with a lovely sunny picture I took on holiday in Mexico that will hopefully encourage the sun to shine this weekend! xx

Introducing my fab friend, housemate and personal chef!

This is a special blog post to introduce my wonderful friend, housemate and personal chef Helen! I'm a very lucky lady to be living with such a fab friend and one who loves to cook and bake and who does it very very well. So, Bank Holiday Monday saw me getting on with some card making while Helen baked a batch of Black Bottom Cupcakes from the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook. Mmmm totally delicious. I've actually just had another one and they are to die for :-)
The proud chef
All gone!
Then last night after a long day at work I returned home to Helen cooking her amazing Toad in the Hole accompanied by some lovely red wine, followed by lemon fool. After the miserable weather this was truely the best thing ever!! So a big thank you to my lovely Hels, love you loads xx
