1. My ercol for John Lewis Chiltern wardrobe arrived on Saturday - one of my most expensive splurges on the flat so far so I was a teeny weeny bit excited / nervous about it's arrival. I can safely say I love it. I decided it was an investment piece that will stand the test of time, spacious and refined. Man points have to go to my fella for doing much of the DIY leg work
(guys and drills eh).
2. Pretty posey from our friends Claire + Dan, setting off my
new Cezanne print from the National Gallery (their gallery shop is amazing for prints from the greats).
3. On Friday night I abolished some rotisserie chicken from new restaurant Le Coq in Islington (all they serve is chicken but that is free-range, organic chicken from Sutton Hoo in Suffolk- uh yum). The pear, blue cheese and watercress starter was pretty sensational too.
4. Feeling suitably domesticated after an early night on Saturday, today I got my bake on, making Will from Bright Bazaar's apricot frangipane recipe. Dead easy and so moist! Best eaten with a dollop of créme fraiche. Loving Will's Bright Bakes series (check out his Spiderweb cupcake recipe for Halloween).
Fellow Londoners, go safe tonight (I can hear the storm coming as I type) x
