Wow, isn't the weather amazing?! For the last week or so I feel like I've been on holidays, even though I most certainly have not been! But everything seems so much nicer and brighter when the sun is out! Over the weekend, I decided I needed to make the most of the sun, just in case this is the only bit we get this "Summer". So, I started with a nice strawberry daiquiri on Friday after work, with my lovely friend Emma. Then, all day Saturday, even though it was lovely out, I spent most of the day indoors making cupcakes!

I've always liked the idea of quiche, but then it seemed to me like there was an awful lot to it - with the pastry and everything. Most quiche recipes I have come across in the past require you to chill the pastry in the fridge for an hour, then blind bake it, which all just seemed like a bit too much effort. I was afraid I might starve before the quiche even made its way into the oven.

I love a good bargain, do you? Recently, I've gotten some good ones. Like this little table. Ever since I brought it home, when anyone comes to visit, I get them to guess how much it cost. So far my sister's boyfriend has been the closest. He guessed three euro, but it was actually only two! Isn't that amazing?! I got it at a charity fair thing a while ago. The guy who was selling it was lovely and when I asked how much it was, he said I was the first person all day to show any interest in it. (Don't know what that says about the table, or me!) So it was mine for two yoyos! I think I was destined to own it!
