9 May

Dear readers

I don’t know what is wrong with me at the moment, all I want to do is cooking and baking! Maybe somehow I realised that I am quite good at cooking (even my husband casually said “I might let you do the cooking for dinner parties…you are not that bad”…after 5 years of perfect meals on his dinner table!) so probably I feel like experimenting even more…I should start to write that famous recipe book I go on about but I never get around to!

Lots went on recently, work at home has finished and we have a lovely patio so we can be ready to enjoy summer evenings and drinks…hopefully Britain will offer us a good summer!

I have had lots on my plate recently, I have been working on my husband’s website, I have been working on the wedding planning website and seems like clients are coming around now which is great….and on Monday we are off to Miami, what is better than that???

I can show you some of my latest creations and I will blog from the Sunshine State…have a great weekend everybody!!

The only way is the Cotswolds, a piece of paradise in the British countryside…let’s brave some country chic soon!!!

19 Nov

I had such a great weekend away in the Cotswolds, for who doesn’t know anything about:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in southwestern and west-central England, an area 25 miles across and 90 miles long. The area has been designated as the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where every weekend lots of people from London go there to enjoy the countryside and to relax from the chaotic city, so we left on Saturday morning to visit a couple of our friends and their children who own a lovely cottage there and we had so much fun….I must admit despite the cold weather!!! I think I have fallen in love hard….for the little 4 months old daughter of our friends…

Pub lunch, walking in the fields, endless glass of red wine in front of the fire, pheasant for dinner…a visit to the animal farm, a visit to the most gorgeous farm shop ever (Daylesford)…a long drive back from Oxford to home…it was a great weekend!!!

Let’s add some gossip to spice up this post…famous celebrities own houses in the Cotswolds, including Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, Elizabeth Hurley, Lily Allen, J K Rowling, Stella McCartney and so on… The first time I went there was the day after Kate Moss got married and I spotted John Galliano walking around the town of Burford, I started to scream in the car when I saw him and very embarrassed he hid himself in the cook shop!

It has been a foodie weekend, for a change! What am I up to? I don’t actually know myself right now!

22 Oct

I just love so much easy weekends, where there is nothing to do, just getting up when it suits me, relax, go out, come back, and cook! Actually our weekend was supposed to be busy, we were supposed to go to the Cotswold to see friends and stay Saturday in their gorgeous cottage in the countryside (last time I went there was Saturday 2nd July last year, I missed Kate Moss wedding lunch to a pub by 10 minutes and I saw John Galliano walking around the high street, that was cool!!!) anyway so there wasn’t much to do, the weather wasn’t that great, as usual, so we just took it easy, breakfast, lunch, dinner, some good movies and a bottle of wine, that’s what you need sometimes. Looking forward to go to Miami in a week, it has been over a month and I cannot wait!!

My weekend, in food pictures

Saturday morning smoothie, before…

and after

The day after it was another story, full English breakfast…in a French restaurant

Roast lamb with vegetables on Sunday night with a nice dessert

Blackberry and apple pie

The pie was made by my husband, I can’t believe how good he is at cooking!!! I am trying to keep myself busy with anything that comes up in my mind right now…but still taking it easy, I must say I haven’t got bored to be a Lady of Leisure yet!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!xxx
