I also bought a little Kodak Brownie from ebay, it arrived friday and although it needs a bit of cleaning up, for 99p, i think it’s a bargain – just look how cute it is……
Saturday I made a stop to my nan’s, and we had salmon sandwiches and trifle and she had some great post – I have been trying to find out more about my Granddad’s time in the army and him during WWII, so we have applied for his army records and they came last week. We spent a good hr or so pouring over these looking at his travels, and finding out which medals he should have got.
Sunday started with Cherry and Almond Cupcakes for breakfast (which i didn’t photograph further because whilst they tasted divine, they just looked disappointing next to the ones I’ve linked to!)
And this wonderful book from the boy – I have been lusting after A Homemade Life by Molly of Orangette for a while, and I may have dropped a hint or two (by placing it on his amazon wish list) but luckily he found it, and I love it.
I have already posted about the fact we’ve booked a snow trip over on my 29thingsbeforeiam30 blog – as snowboarding more was one of my 30 things to do, no.6 to be exact. So Sunday afternoon saw the boy and I heading for his first snowboarding lesson at xscape. He can ski already, but I’m just not sure I am ready to date a skier! I had an hr or so on the slope, but those drag lifts, and the abundance of ski school users, make it nothing like the real thing………Luckily he loved it and is even more excited about the trip now. Less that 2 weeks and we’ll be there.
