MICRO PLEASURES {21-30}

21. Our sofas arriving tomorrow.  The novelty of having only one little arm chair has seriously worn off over the last couple of days.

22.  Possibly having a plan B in the works.

23.  A nice tweet from a friend.  Really brightened my day.

24.  Face Time.  I don't know what I did before it.  It makes me feel like I am with some of my favourite people.

25.  Having a haircut after far too long and feeling all swishy coming out of the hairdressers.

26.  Humus.  I love thee.

27.  Flicking through the pages of Vogue.

28.  Coffee and cake dates.

29.  My new white slightly cropped t-shirt.  I am loving it.  I think it will be appearing in a post soon.

30.  Finding my little book where I write down quotes that mean something to me.  Man, there are some good quotes in there.

What about you?

HERE COMES SPRING

On Saturday I was ever hopeful that spring had sprung and so decided to dust my mac off and wear it just on the off chance it had.

I love a mac because they are classic, make you look so put together when in reality you haven't even dragged a comb through your hair and just because something makes me feel a little Breakfast at Tiffanys when I am wearing one.

But Saturday was more April showers than one of those blue sky spring days and so warmth was required.  What do I do to wear my mac just for that little bit longer? Well I layer it to keep the chill at bay and my favourite thing to layer it over is my leather jacket.  I just love the way the collars work together and it isn't as obvious as a scarf and a jumper.  I don't know I think it makes the mac even more effortlessly cool but that is just my opinion.

Also I must say I am far from a fashion blogger and find posing so awkward so Jonny just tried to capture me "naturally" which meant a lot of funny faces especially as the wind was not my friend.
And with that natural fashion blogger pose and face I end this post.

THE LAST OF THE STRATFORD PHOTOS

I don't know how I have managed to drag this one weekend away into three posts but some how I have.  I can't decide if it is a good or bad thing. I am going to say good.

This is basically what we got up to in Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday, and there might have been a majorly lazy morning because when your kids aren't there you have to take advantage.

Oh and because I am living the dream I managed to have a nap while Jonny watched the rugby: who says I am not rock 'n' roll.  I know, I know, but seriously being able to have a nap, what a novelty.

And now on to the photos:

A VALENTINE'S TASTING MENU AT THE WHITE SWAN

Jonny did not just surprise me with a weekend away {post here} but also managed to book a special meal for us to enjoy on Valentine's day.  It was a five course tasting menu with the accompanying wine at The White Swan.  So something truly special and very different from the norm.

I have to say I was rather nervous because rich food can make me feel a little bit ill sometimes and also I don't like fish or seafood so I was a little apprehensive but I needn't have been.

Now this post is not only food heavy but also photo heavy so you might need a drink and if you are feeling rather peckish get a snack.  And finally I am also not a restaurant critic nor a michelin chef so it is just my opinion about the food and how I found it.
