small sighs


Saturday marked the official start date of the Easter holidays. So to celebrate I tucked into some lovely croissants, normally reserved for special occasions, and boy did I enjoy them! I normally eat breakfast in bed but as the sun was streaming through the blinds, I decided to get up and make the most of the day which included a lot of reading, drinking coffee and pottering.

Hopefully the weather will stay sunny so we can spend some much needed time in the garden. Lots of walks, enjoying the little things and maybe a spot of spring cleaning are my plans for this week.

I have been loving:

 Planting fresh herbs on the potting bench to use in recipes

Drinking jasmine tea in our favourite Vietnamese cafe

 Lovely scented lilies to brighten our dining room










Gorgeous gifts given to me by a dear friend 

Have a lovely week.

  1. Looks like a great Easter holiday week so far. I wish I could keep herbs alive, they always seem to die on me (apart from rosemary which seems almost impossible to kill).

    1. I'm definitely better with herbs than I am with houseplants! I'm making a special effort this year to grow even more! I just need to remember to water them all! Thanks for your lovely comment, Lisa. :-)
