Things I’m Loving (May 2016)

Its hard to believe that we have now come to the end of May and I am writing about my favourite things.  Five months of the year have gone by and the dreams and hopes I had for the year are not coming to fruition.  I am hoping that the remainder of the year can at least see some of them come true.  I know I can hope.

Being A Food Blogger

I love cooking nearly as much as I love eating meals I have cooked!  I really enjoy writing my food blog, I just wish I had more time to write all out favourite recipes. I must say if I had to choose I would go for sweet over savoury every time.  However, when it comes to savoury I love good old fashioned stews, casseroles and pies.  One of my favourite meals is beef stroganoff.  I just love the warming sauce covering a good quality steak and cute little button mushrooms.  Obviously served with wild rice.

What can I say, I love tea, especially PG tips, it really is my favourite.  I can literally drink buckets of it each and every day!



May has been the month of the bluebell.  In wooded areas all around the country these pretty delicate flowers have bloomed turning grassy areas all blue.  This just makes me smile so much.


Pretty Dresses

I just love this style of vintage 1950’s dress.  I own lots of ones in this style but they are mostly what I would call winter colours.  This month I treated myself to this pretty pink flower dress from Lindy Bop.  It makes me feel like summer is on its way when I am wearing it.

Birthday Boys

This month we have had 2 birthday boys in our family.  First up is my Nephew who turned 4.  Aunty Candace brought him his first Lego set and he just loved playing with the helicopter.


Then there was the other birthday boy who turned 14.  Guess what?  He had Lego too!  Guess you could say we are a family of Lego builders.

What are you loving this month?

    I love bluebells, yet never seem to get to take photos of them, not in abundance anyway.

    It might’ve just been my birthday, but I’m wiping this month and this year off the map. It’s just been so bad, it’s unbelievable.
