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!

I Love Saturday Mornings

Who doesn’t LOVE Saturday mornings?

After a long week, it’s a chance to relax a little.

We don’t worry quite so much about routine, although obviously Sweet Harry & Sweet Bea still wake up the same time!!!

At the moment we’re teaching Harry to stay in his room. He wakes so early. We take him by the hand & don’t say anything, just take him back to bed. He’s getting it slowly but we’re still up by 6.30am, & that’s a lie in.

We tend to bring the kids into bed with us, get the iPad out & drink tea (milk & formula for the kids!) & eat biscuits while watching Peppa Pig episodes on Demand 5!

Just thinking about Saturday mornings lifts me a little! Although my Saturdays pre-kids were SO different!!

Now my favourite morning is the above, then coffee & home made muffins, then putting the TV on for Saturday Morning Live with James Martin.

I love having it on in the background while Harry plays, Jon dashes on & out & dip in & we get on with our day.

The best bit of the programme is the ‘Food Heaven or Hell’ where the public choose if the celebrity guest will have their favourite or most hated food cooked for them.

My food heaven is American Style Breakfast & anything pasta!

Hell would be veal. Oh no thank you!

What is your perfect Saturday Morning? I’d love to know.

Have a great weekend friends, whatever you’re doing.
