Week off

I've just had a weeks holiday from work. I was really looking forward to it. I had loads of plans to get things done on my flat. Mainly the last few bits of DIY that need doing and some painting in the bathroom from where I had to repaper from a leak from the flat above. I've been ill the whole week though and spent most of it in bed :( This last weekend has perked me up though with some nice things and lovely people. Yesterday I got a surprise delivery of Ms Cupcake cakes! 

Yum, yum. They really are the best! Ferrero Rocher, Black Forest Gateau, Vanilla and Rhubarb and Custard. I was good, I shared them with family and friends. Even the 16 month old twins had some - start em young on the quality vegan cakes!

Today I had a leisurely brunch with my friends Helen and Debbie. We got the bus just up the road to Withington to Fuel a veggie/vegan cafe that I've not been to for a while. They've revamped the menu and I must say I was very impressed!

For the vegan breakfast you get toast, marg, 2 sausages, a mix of sweet potato and potato wedges, spinach, half a grilled tomato, mushrooms and a spicy 3 bean mix. It was just the right amount of food and the flavours went really well together. They seem to have upped their vegan cake offer and there is soya milk available too.

Finally, this made me smile. I have a little etch a sketch which I keep in the bathroom. It's always interesting to see what guests do with it! This was a joint picture from Helen and Debbie. Hope you've had a good weekend too.


  1. I love Ms Cupcake cupcakes. My favourite so far is the bakewell tart one. Better stil, her Brixton shop is 20 minutes walk from my house! x

  2. Just had a week off myself! We paid Fuel a visit ourselves the other week, really enjoyed it - lots of halloumi yumminess!
