Weekend Review: What I Ate, Wore and Saw!

So this weekend involved spending time with a lot of lovely people, doing lots of lovely things and eating lots of lovely food!

On Friday night, I went to Jimmy Spices with my (now ex) housemate and another friend.  It's a new all-you-can-eat buffet of Indian, Italian, Chinese and Thai food. Yum yum yum! In fact, this is how happy the dessert area made me:

Hehe, happy pudding face :)  I'm a bit known for how much I love my food.  In fact, my housemates refer to me frequently as 'Jenny Two Dinners'.  So this place was exactly what I needed!

On Saturday morning, after a calamitous attempt to catch a bus (missed the first one by a minute, and just before the second one turned up I realised I'd left my cashcard, cigarettes and phone at home!), I took a trip to Vintage V.  This is a new shop opened in a nearby village dedicated to the 40s and it's brilliant!  Of course, such a trip deserves a special outfit:

Hat: Vintage V
Cardi and Cameo: Presents from Mamma
Dress: Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair

The shopping trip didn't disappoint, and I came home with an awesome outfit for my day out on Sunday :)

So Sunday... wow.  The mamma bear and I had tickets to go see Swan Lake in Cambridge.  It was absolutely beautiful, I was completely blown away.  Ballet is just so so my favourite thing right now.  And before the show, we went to the Jamie Oliver restaurant.  Oh boy!  It was sooo tasty.  I had a glass of Prosecco and berry puree to start, followed by pumpkin pasta, and topped off with the tastiest chocolate, raspberry and amaretto brownie.  I must find a recipe for those.  And, of course, here's some pictures...

Geek!  I'm so bad at this posing lark...

And some photos from Jamie's...
Mmmm drinkies

Such a beautiful building!

Between us, the mamma bear and I have almost 50 years of being vegetarian.
So why she took a picture of the meat counter, I have no idea...

Hope you all had a super weekend whatever you got up to!  I must get catching up on all the essays I didn't do... oops!

Love Jen xxxx

Land Girls!

Has anyone else been watching Land Girls on BBC?

Yes, yes, I know it's been slammed for being totally inaccurate. But. When having a cuppa before bed, I don't want to watch a documentary. I want to watch something with pretty hair and dresses with a nice fluffy romantic story. And boy, it delivers on that.

(First attempt at a screencap... must try harder lol)

This scene is just too cute... when Connie kisses the piano player (and finds out in the next episode that he's the vicar...).  Just adorable.  I'm totally soppy at heart.  And he is just an absolute cupcake!  I'm far too superficial, TV shows are definitely more watchable when there's something pretty to look at  :)

In other exciting news, my friend Bob and I are off to Hedna's next weekend.  And Katy Carr's playing! It's our first 40s night out since Wansford last September, absolutely cannot wait.  Going to see Swan Lake this weekend too, so much awesome right now.  Which totally makes up for the fact I've been MIA for months, right?
