My fortnight: 23 & 24

Since I was feeling a tad under the weather last week, I decided to make this post a fortnight in photos.

*Macaroons! I have a new addiction. 
*I love the wedge on this shoe – it’s literally lots of little toys.
*Pink Polar Bear and Le Fizz cocktails at Kro Bar for a friend’s birthday. Take my advice and stay away from Le Fizz. Tiny for the price and all you can taste is lime!
* Decorative fair
*New boots, new dress – a good day
*Olympics mascots chocolate – yummy 🙂
*My first football match!
Looking back over these photos, the first ones feel like ages ago! I had to get some macaroons when me and the bf went to Yo Sushi in Selfridges. Just a little treat to celebrate both us being paid. Another highlight was the decorative fair in Fallowfield on the 23rd. I had a great time and made a handsome profit (yes I did just say handsome profit). 
 
And finally, I managed to fully tick one of my 25 things to do before I’m 25. Go to a football match.I went to see Stalybridge vs Chester on Saturday with the bf and his step-dad, step brother and grandad. I had a great time. Even if you’re not into football, you’ve got to admit it is quite fun hurling abuse at men running around in shorts!
 
We all also went for a Sunday roast at a country pub which was quite tasty. Though I have to say it wasn’t as good as me and the bf’s roast we did a couple of weeks ago 🙂
 
After a stressful couple of weeks of work I’m happy to say that I received my visa today to go to India. My parents pick me up on Friday. I can’t wait! The adventure begins.

*Aloe drink from the Chinese supermarket – thanks Claire!
*Panda biscuit from Chinese supermarket again
*Rainbow
*Jubilee biscuits at work – yummy:)
*Me and the bf met Pikachu!
*Me, the bf and Claire have started counting our pennies for our trip to Florida in exactly 1 years time – every little helps.
*Me and the bf made Sunday roast with Claire’s supervision. 
*Lego store! I may have bought some to turn into jewellery 🙂
Last week was another busy one at work so I was really looking forward to the weekend where for the first time in weeks I had no plans whatsoever. Nice. It was payday on Friday so me and the bf went to town on Saturday where I gave my debit card a battering. Photos of my purchases to come!
 
Then on Sunday we made a Sunday roast while chatting endlessly with Claire about our Florida trip. 359 days to go! I’m not excited at all, ha ha. We even made a goal chart to mark our savings towards the holiday. Bring on the saving.

My week: 30

I really didn’t take many photos this week but I managed to scrape together a few. Really need to carry my camera around with me more.

*I am now a spreadsheet whiz…kinda.
*Doodles – I like buttons.
*Vintage fair weekend.
*Enchiladas! I promise you they were not this yellow in real life, the lighting wasn’t great.
*Sunday dinner – I literally cannot move.
*We put up canvases today! I had the hammer and the bf held the bag of nails. 21st century couple, ha ha.
So this weekend I had two vintage fairs. Very tiring but I had a great time at both and made a profit so it’s all good. I may have spent a little bit of money too. Mainly on stuff for my table display but I also indulged in a clothing purchase too. Definitely divulging the details in a post this week. Stay tuned. 
 
And just to be a complete Brit and discuss the weather – how gorgeous was it this weekend? I got to give my sandals another spin before retiring them until next year. Where was the sun last month? Ah well, winter is coming! (Still reading a song of ice and fire – it’s been 11 days and I’m a third of the way through. What a brick of a book!).
