Life Lately (According to Instagram)

More fun and games.  And cats, of course! Here’s a selection of my recent instagram adventures.

The cats discovered just how warm the spare room gets on sunny days….

…happy kits!

I love when I catch them being sweet to one another!

I’ve had some fun post, including these awesome post-its from Emily!

The #ootd posts continue poorly (I forget *so* often), but the silly pose game is improving.

This is what Fry thinks of Saturday night marking!

To celebrate 30 years of the Junior League of London, we had a ‘Party Like It’s 1985’ gala.  So I went as Supergirl (1984), clearly.  So fun to party with these ladies, Matthew, and the JLL crew!

A new season always inspires me to try some new recipes.

We celebrated 3 years in our lovely home. Such a joy to live here.

Poppet got very cross at the whole ‘back to school hours’ thing.  And napped lots.

Before the 80s party I broke out the ice bowl we were given as a wedding gift – so fun to fill it with individual bottles of wine, as well as beer and fun canned cocktails rather than sticking to bigger ones.

I always watch a movie while catching up with ironing.  This week it was Josie and the Pussycats.  Such a brilliant, silly movie.  The soundtrack is awesome.

I love devising cocktails – our pre-80s drink was a ‘Pretty In Pink’.  A French Martini base, extra Chambord for colour, a dash of orange liquer and cherries to adorn.  Yum!

We feasted on chicken and chorizo sliders, salmon and cream cheese pitas, and cous cous with roasted squash and feta, as well as all the usual buffet suspects.  And a cheese and pineapple on sticks hedgehog, because eighties. Love cooking!

The photo booth at the party did a roaring trade!  Loved dancing to 80s pop, admiring costumes and celebrating a charity of which I am so fond.

Such a fun, busy fortnight.  London in springtime is brilliant.
