Five on Friday – Chichester Edition

3a538-5onfridaylogo-final-forblogsidemenu_edited-1_zps7fcf6068Hi Friends,

Last weekend I went away with my Mum to stay with my sissy & bro-in-law in Chichester.  We’ve known the city for a long time as we have other family there too.

It’s such a pretty place I thought I’d share some pics with you.

ONE – Chichester Cathedral

Any Cathedral is worth a picture, Chichester Cathedral is a really pretty one.

CHICHESTER CATHEDRAL

TWO – Patisserie Valerie

Such amazing cakes here.

PATISSERIE VALERIE PATISSERIE VALERIE 1 PATISSERIE VALERIE 2

This is new since the last time I visited, my sissy was keen to show us this new experience. I say experience because the patisserie counter is something else!

Mum had the Mille
Rosie chose cheesecake
I had the Tirimisu!

Soooo yummy but it was huge, I admitted defeat. Since WW I just can’t eat like I used to.

SAD TIRIMISU

Sad Tirimisu which went uneaten, but was yummy!

THREE – Shopping with my girls

FAVE GIRLS

These 2 are my favourite girls in the world. I always have such a lovely time with them.

We shopped 6 hours with only 2 stops.

FOUR – Paperchase

I have a slight obsession with Paperchase & since we don’t have one in my hometown I was in my element.

I got Harry a CRAB plate & Sweet Bea tropical TOUCAN russian doll style lunch/snack boxes.

PAPERCHASE PINEAPPLE

I nearly bought this painted wooden pineapple but stopped myself. Although obsessed with them it was £10 for a bright yellow pineapple!! Now I’m thinking that’s a bargain, I love pineapples. EEk I’ve found it online HERE.

FIVE – Pretty Buildings & Flint Wall
OLD DOOR CHICHESTER SIDE STREETCHICHESTER CLOCK FLINT WALLThese walls are typical of the area, hand crafted still today (it’s a technique that goes way back) I think they’re so pretty.

So that’s my FIVE! Sorry it’s a little late. Cheers to the link up ladies, April, Christina, Darci & Natasha.

Blessings for a fab weekend, the sun is shining!

Five on Friday 14th March 2014 Edition

09cc0-5onfriday-logooption1

Today’s link up is such a sweet one for me. It’s my beautiful sissy’s 30th birthday today!! I can’t quite believe my baby sister is 30!!

So my Five this week are all about Rosie!

O N E  –  I remember meeting my baby sister for the first time in my Mum’s arms in the hospital. I was 7 years old & I recall feeling very excited that she was a girl. I immediately wanted to mother her. I saw her walk first & have always had a huge protective instinct of her. She was a beautiful baby!

T W O  – Growing up was fun with Rosie, we shared a room until I was in my later teens. She snored quite loudly so I used to throw my teddies at her head to make her turn over. I thought by throwing a soft toy it wouldn’t hurt her, she later told me my Care Bear’s nose used to hit her quite hard. Ha!

T H R E E  – Rosie has had the same group of friends from about age 4 upwards, it’s testament to her personality that she still has those friends today (amongst countless others). She’s loyal, beautiful inside & out, & incredibly caring.

F O U R  – Not many people know that my sis suffers with stomach problems. It’s a hereditary thing that didn’t carry to me or my brother Tom. We have no idea
why Rosie carries it & we don’t. She never complains although she is in pain at times (which is why not a lot of people know). We are so proud of her resilience not to let it stop her live her life to the full. I love her positive outlook on life!!

F I V E  –  Rosie is considered an ‘Outstanding’ Teacher, in regards to Ofsted, her School peers, pupils, family & friends, & yes okay if you must, the world!!! She’s incredibly intelligent but more importantly the hardest working person I know.

Look at her precious face! Happy birthday Rosie!  Have an amazing 30th birthday filled with fun, friends, family, fizz & I’m hoping for lots of cake for you!!!! (& please forgive me showing these cute pics of you!!).

It’s also my Grampy’s 100th birthday party & my Aunty’s 60th birthday this weekend! Loads of special birthdays we’re privileged to celebrate with all of them & the rest of our lovely family this weekend.

With thanks for my link up hosts, AprilChristina, Darci & Natasha.

Until the next time friends!
Have a great Friday & weekend.
