5 things that made me smile this week...

1. Fresh roses in the living room

2. Hot cross buns and chai for breakfast. You will never catch me complaining about the stores putting hot cross buns on their shelves too early - the longer I get to eat them each year, the better!

3. Scented candles. This Glasshouse gardenia candle is gently sweetly-fragranced, and oh-so-delicious

4. Baking! One of the best things about the cooler weather

5. Snuggly kittycats - 'nuff said!



  1. Aww, this is a sweet post.

    On the subject of candles, I'm giving some away ATM so if you fancy another yum smelling little something come visit. :)

  3. All the food looks fab! I'm hungry now!

    I've always wanted a Glasshouse candle - the gardenia one sounds divine.

  7. Those roses are gorgeous, you just reminded me that the bird of paradise in my lounge is desperately in need of replacement, maybe roses it is!

    I limit my hot cross bun consumption to the few weeks before easter but I'm in full swing now. I'm going to try out a new bakery today, I'm expecting good things.

  8. mmm I love all those things too, and I definitely won't say no to a hot cross bun. What kind of muffins are they? They look delicious! I've been baking up a storm lately as well, cool weather is perfect for big cups of tea with cakes!

  9. is your cat a british blue shorthair?
