my (long) weekend

so, friday was epiphany meaning it was a public holiday here in austria. bonus! the extra day was kinda handy as i was still feeling a little under the weather and kev had caught the dreaded lurgy from me.

the weekend was spent mostly at home resting, but i did manage to get out to the cinema to see jane eyre (totally brilliant adaptation). i cried (lots!) which was rather embarrassing at the end when they switched the lights back on. i also ventured out on sunday for afternoon tea at a friends place. delicious home baked cakes and earl grey tea helped to revive me!

i received two new cookery books for christmas and this weekend we tried piri piri chicken from jamie's 30 minute meals and beef tagine from jamie does.... i loved both. really great recipes.

oh, and i bought some new sparkly shoes in the sales!


  1. How odd - we cooked the beef tagine from jamie does... for the first time at the weekend too :-)

    Glad you are feeling better and I love the boots you are wearing in one of the shots!

  2. Loving the shoes in this post! I need to know where the little booties are from!

  3. hey, thanks! the boots are french connection. i bought them in the sale from asos... but they don't seem to have them anymore. and they have also sold out on the french connection website!

    hannah, so funny we cooked the same dish on the same weekend!

  4. I have been thinking of getting a Tagine....
