The Weekend in Pictures

{I went for a walk on Saturday morning and snapped these lovely daffodils}

Isn’t it amazing what a difference a bit of sunshine can make? We have had glorious weather this weekend and somehow everything seems so much easier when the sun is out, everyone is happier (including the normally grumpy drivers in London!) and even food seems to taste better when it is eaten outside, underneath bright blue skies. I wonder if it’s just because nice weather is such a rarity on these shores. I’d love to know – if you’re lucky enough to live in sunnier climes, does it still boost your mood or do you just get used to it?

{The outdoor furniture could do with a good clean but it was blissful to sit outside with a cup of coffee and a magazine, listening to the birds chirping in the trees and the children arguing over the football (oh well you can’t have it all!)}

Blue accessories

{Lady in blue: Me up in town this morning wearing my blue pumps from New Look (bought five years ago), a white and blue scarf (bought in Sweden), knitted jacket by Odd Molly, jeans by Paige Denim and sunglasses from Oliver Peoples}

{We try to go up to the Swedish Church in Marylebone twice a month so the children can go to Sunday school and practice their language skills. Afterwards, there is always coffee and plenty of cakes – during Lent they serve traditional Swedish semla (cakes flavoured with cardamom and filled with almond paste and cream) – sooo yummy!}

{It looks like it will be the perfect week to fit in a few power walks and trips to the park. No doubt the rain will return at some point so I intend to make the most of it!}

Now the kids are all in bed, the washing up is done, my blog post is written and I think we have time to squeeze in a couple of episodes of House of Cards. We’ve almost watched all of the second series so have to find another one soon…

Hope you’ve all had a great weekend. X

  1. Ase, I LOVE the blue shoes! You look beautiful. πŸ˜€
    Our whether here in FL has been so nice this weekend too. Sunny and 70 degrees. You know, I would love more of a change of seasons but we do have a decent amount of rainy days, often back to back and it can bring you “down” after a few days of it. I tend to not mind the lack of sunshine unless it’s for several days so then it does boost my mood when the sun comes back and we can be outside more. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! It was your post on the blue Manolos that prompted me to dig them out as soon as it was warm enough. The Florida climate sounds amazing to me. I’m working at my desk with the windows open today and it’s lovely. At the same time I quite like having proper seasons – it’s the rain I can’t stand when it goes on and on, I prefer snow and cold as long as it’s sunny at the same time. xxx

  2. I love those blue shoes, wow! Great pictures. Envy you London, in any weather. (I am not getting notifications of your posts for some reason, so forgive my spotty presence here – I am trying to figure out where they go…). πŸ™‚

  3. I live in California and it is sunny almost every day here. So glad you are enjoying some good weather. We are in a bit of a drought so you can send some of your rain over here if you like πŸ™‚
    Love the scarf & the shoes!
