Weekend Time...

Hi everyone!
Hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to a nice weekend:)  I had a very busy day yesterday so I didn't have time to write a blog post. Top that off with a day of rain and mums taxi in full operation and you get the picture :)

First up the good news, Shane passed all his first year college exams so we are thrilled for him. Conor is finishing his today so it will be a huge relief all round !


 Now I did manage to make this lovely pancetta and chive tart which would be a delightful brunch recipe for the weekend if any one would like to try it.

Basically I rolled out some shortcrust pastry. Line an 8 in pie tin. Fry some Pancetta (diced bacon bits) on the pan and spread it over the pie base. Add your filling of 2 eggs. 3 fl oz milk, onion and some diced tomato. Bake in a hot 180c oven for 20 mins. Garnish with chopped chives to serve . So delish and fairly easy peasy!!


In other news I was delighted to buy this DKNY bag in my favourite local boutique! I had looked at lots of others but decided on this classic tan style in the finish!


Jacket/Karen Millen    Dress/warehouse    Sandals/penneys    Bag/DKNY

Now I 'm off to watch Sarah in her school play this morning. She has the part of King Midas so hopefully it all goes well!! I have decided to wear this black maxi with my tan leather jacket as it is dull and damp. After school I am bringing herself and a friend to Eddie Rockets for a treat :)  Better fly or I will be murdered if I make a late entry!!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend :)

    1. Thanks Inge...I did love the pink you emailed me about but practicality took over in the end!

    2. I do not know where 'silver satire' came from I meant it was very versatile (and no I was not on the wine).

  22. You sound so busy, it's amazing you get time to post at all, let alone late! I am very sporadic in my postings but I really want to change that. I can't even organise myself to look as good as you in the process. I tend to throw on whatever is handiest and doesn't need ironing, usually jeans and a top!
