Its been a funny week here on The Glade and, I for one, am so ready for the weekend.
My Five on Friday seem to mostly reflect my need for comfort this week.
It is definitely chiller and darker around here now.
Here are five things that have irked and pleased me in equal measures this week.
The leaves have started to fall off the trees around the Chapel this week.
It looks so autumn and pretty.
For those of you who don’t know, the Chapel is opposite our house and is supposed to be our community centre.
However, we have lived in the house for 16 months now and not a tap of work has been done on it by the builders.
It remains boarded up and deemed unsafe.
This is very disappointing because the Chapel was a part of the deal when we bought our houses..
We were all sold the idea that the residents on this development would have exclusive use of the Chapel.
Alas, we remain locked out – it really is a poor show by the builders.
The spiders have been busy all over The Glade this week.
These spectacular webs have appeared all over the place, don’t you think it looks very Halloween like?
We have had slow cooker dinners almost every night this week.
It is such a great way to cook, throw everything in and come home to a lovely hot dinner.
I do tons of things in my slow cooker from lasagna to crumbles to mulled wine.
In fact, although I already have two, I invested in another this week. I am sure I will get lots of use out of all three.
The recipe for the sausage casserole that is cooking in the picture came from Lucy BakingQueen74‘s blog.
Honestly, if you are looking for inspiration, pop over to visit her, she is fab!
I have been burning this candle all week.
It is gorgeous and does smell very summery. It is as good as my usual expensive brand.
However, this little beauty only cost £1.49 – an absolute bargain!
When we were taking Jack for a run yesterday, we were rewarded by this magnificent sunset.
Isn’t it a beauty?
Thank you to Amy & Stevie for hosting xx
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
