Fur at the Forge

The weather is all over the place here in the UK, it was back to grey and gloomy at the end of last week and  with a definite chill in the air so it was back on with the tights and fur!

I love this blouse, its a definite 'hair up' top though so you can see the lovely peter pan collar and bow tie.

Food from the Forge

Dinner out on Thursday night at The Drop Forge, a new pub right here in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. It still has the old machinery on display and lots of cosy nooks and crannies! I love the exposed brickwork and the leather sofas, the outdoor roof terrace will be fantastic in the summer. I'm looking forward to a sunday lunch there holed up in a corner with the papers.


We ate, asparagus and smoked bacon, chicken liver pate and toasted bread, rump steak with gratin potatoes and Toulouse sausage and oinion mash.

Blog i'm loving

How I met your style is such a great blog. I love seeing inside people's homes and this is a little look into some homes of bloggers we all know and a small interview with each of them. I found a couple of bloggers i'd never heard of too which i'm now following!

What's not to love!

Picnic

On Friday we had to make the most of the fabulous April weather so matt and I headed outside to the square for best part of the day. We took down a picnic, our books, some music and the camera and soaked up the lovely warm sun.

The ice cream van made a perfectly timed appearance and we couldn't resist a Mr Whippy. (the first i've had in years!) We spent such a leisurely day lounging outside.

It was so much fun we did it again on Saturday and Sunday along with most of the other residents of the square!
