Adventures in the Sun

It's so very nearly spring like this week! The sunshine is out and the skies are blue :) Although it has turned much chillier this week, that's my favourite weather ♥
Just some pics from the last week or so, using the Instagram app which I absolutely adore!
A new craft night started up in Southsea last month at Tea Tray in the Sky. This is a gorgeous new tea shop and a great setting for crafting! I set about making circle paper bunting, which basically meant I cut up a lot of circles..hoping to be prepared with something more fun next time. It's a monthly event, but talking to Lou, the organiser, it sounds like she's got some fantastic ideas up her sleeve!

Went to City Museum to see the new LBD exhibit. We can't get enough of this place! It's small but fun and cheap :) The exhibit had some beautiful dresses from all different eras and I like the local involvement with dresses and photos from people in the area. I ♥ Southsea

I picked up these pretty green and pink jam jars in the village where my parents have recently moved. The shop was filled with lovely home items and upstairs had vintage furniture and glassware. The lady in the shop even paints up furniture! I ♥ my parent's new home, I like to pretend I live there when I visit..sigh! Pretty daffodils were from the boy :)

At the weekend, we decided we needed a night out and a few drinks! Unfortunately this lead to a dangerous drinking game played at the boys' house which never fails to get me very drunk :s This time, however, there was a new twist...we all had to do a shot of Balkan! That's 88% alcohol and my god, could you feel it! The picture above is when we burned of the remnants after drinking the shot...that bad boy burned for a looong time.

Nicola with the Balkan :) She's smiling now, but our faces were not that happy after the shot!

That Fucking Drinking Game - this is the official's pretty appropriate!

I got overly excited about the sunshine being out this weekend (although it managed to throw out a fair bit of rain). Blue skies in Southsea are the best.

The boy and I baked an awful lot of cupcakes last week...24 in total! We made marshmallow vanilla ones and chocolate chip ones. First time i've done chocolate and I've learnt not to be so eager with the cocoa powder :s
Phew, it's been a busy few days! But lots of fun :)
