What a busy weekend! Wow I can be super efficient when I want to be (an impending deadline looming ahead helps quick things I must say…W-Day is approaching sooooon!)
I got up early to rush off to my beauty appointment Saturday morning, then had to rush home and do some housework (yes I am that OCD). And then my sister, my mum and me rushed off to have lunch in Chichester. Chichester is such a lovely place and the weather was fabulous. There were all these little stalls about selling local foodie things which just made my day. I was like a kid in a sweet shop! [Apologies for the photos, it was very sunny and I was using my IPhone!]
So obviously I had to pick myself up a little something…or three…
I’m in love with these chutneys. I could have bought more than this to be honest but I had to restrain myself (well, my sister had to restrain me). Banana chutney sounds crazy, but it’s SO good. I cannot wait to start using these!
We then went to a lovely restaurant called Trents.
That’s my mum and me.
And my sister and my mum. We’re a very small family (with my dad) but we’re very close. I have such fun with my sister and mum, we all just have a lot of banter with each other and are always there for each other if we need them.
For starter we shared a platter of hummus-type dips and a baked camembert…
Divine. We dove into it and hoovered it all up like locusts. Very yummy.
For main I chose a lime and chilli chicken salad.
And I was STUFFED. Let’s be honest, I was quite full after the starter! But it a perfect lunch.
Then we ambled along Chichester high-street just moseying about really. We ended up in Lakeland Plastics which is one of my favourite shops (seriously, they have they answer for every chef’s problem!!) And similar to those mini-spatulas I found last week, I found this mini-frying pan:
I mean how cute is that! It’s to fry a solitary egg.
And we also found some random items that made us laugh. A tin for all of Ben’s essential items!
You know what I mean though…all that random Man Stuff that get scattered about the house(batteries & screwdrivers…things like that). Hehe.
And this card made me giggle:
Now this might sound sappy, but there was a violinist playing outside as we were mooching about and while we walked along I realised he had started playing the music I’m going to walk down the aisle to!!
Canon in D Major (by Pachelbel). It was so lovely.
Hope you all had lovely weekends!

How exciting! Those pickles/ chutneys look yummy.
They are so good. They had tasters at the stall and honestly, I was there for a good long time trying out each one!
