Adventures of the Benign – a week of rambles

With a rather busy week, a duvet day tomorrow is definately tempting – especially with the cool crisp weather we have at the moment. Overall it’s been a really good week, and I’m looking forward to the weekend.

I have celebrated 4 wonderful married years with my hubby; (it’s fruit & flowers this year the traditional gift – he got me the below flowers, and because I think I’m funny, I got him a tin of peaches!)

We enjoyed a lovely dinner for our anniversary, culminated in the loveliest desserts. I think I’ll be back there, for dessert. I also tried pigeon for the first time – it’s ok, the piece I tried was a bit tough & gamey.

We celebrated All Hallows’ Eve; (mostly by eating a lot of pumpkin)

Jack, our pumpkin, became cinnamon & ginger flavoured pumpkin seeds, the scrummiest Curried Pumpkin & Parsnip soup (thank you Lin, your curry powder is scrumptious!) and was also destined to become Pumpkin Pie … until my rampaging hubby threw the pumpkin out. Jack’s little grinning face was staring at me from the bin…

Had a few early starts

… for work training, which I’ve already used much to my surprise! I am definately not a morning person.


We generally have just enjoyed London this week.


How has your week been? Marked any milestones; large or small?
