weekend snaps...

Saturday was all about house pottering about.
white-washed shelves for the studio
yes, it's slowly coming alive again!

The Mr hung our 14yr-old honeymoon Bedouin rug

and new hallway lamps

the shelves were put up
what a difference a little organisation makes in a chaotic studio

on a hot and sticky Sunday...
chicken alfredo by the seaside.
ah, pasta my old friend, you caught me.

Mr had a coffee, I stole that little italian biscuit that comes with it.
Monica 0 - Carbs 100. 
Carbs win.
