8 brilliant weekend things

Monday morning has rolled around again. Sigh.

On the bright side, I had a lovely weekend. Here are eight things I liked about it:

1. Watching The Kings Speech again

I saw this in the cinema and really enjoyed it. Very happy to watch it again. Best bits: Colin Firth’s performance, overcoming adversity, finding a voice and the excellent use of the word ‘tits’.

2. Autumnal sunshine

I love autumn, especially when it’s still sunny, with a chill in the air. And it makes London all historical.

3. Saturdays at bake-a-boo

I’ve been helping Zoe out at her beautiful bake and tea shop in West Hampstead for a few weeks now, and although it gets mental and busy, it’s so much fun. AND there’s wheat-free cake 🙂

4. Making pasta bake

Science says carbs make you happy. I agree. I made a pasta bake after bake-a-boo and it was delicious. It included: wheat-free pasta, sweet peppers, peas, tomato sauce, garlic, cumin and baked beans, topped with mozarella AND parmesan (for stretchy and crunchy).

5. Getting my hair cut

After years of long not-sure-what-to-do-with-it hair, I went for a change. It’s short now, and hopefully easier to manage. Totally refreshing!

6. Tracking down stuffing for Dave’s cushion (not a euphemism)

Dave’s making a giant cushion. He got some material on Saturday, then researched where to find some cheap stuffing. The wonder that is gumtree lead us to Fleet Street, where we picked up 12 bags full of unrefined cotton from a really lovely (and very generous) lady called Heidi. Win!

7. Going for hot chocolate at La Maison du Chocolat

I am a hot chocolate connoisseur, and Dave believes this is the best hot chocolate place in London. It was pretty good, although quite formal – and I think Apostrophe hot chocolate is probably still my favourite.

8. Stephen Fry’s Planet Word

After a long weekend, it was an early night for me, and for the second week running this tv show caught my attention. This week, Stephen approached the ‘what is literature’ question, and I was hooked. I bloody love that stuff.

So those were the best bits of my weekend! I hope everyone else is enjoying the autumn sun as much as I am.
