Martini | Weekend cocktail

**This year instead of cutting back on things with my New Year's resolutions some of them involved taking up something new. One of those was cocktails! I decided I was going to make one or two on a Friday or Saturday, not every week but when we were at home with no weekend plans and wanted to swap our usual wine or craft beer for something a little different. Here's cocktail #4...

It's time for another cocktail recipe using my favourite spirit - Bombay Sapphire. With a few busy weekends one after the other we haven't had our weekend cocktail for almost a month, so I decided a Martini was in order! With four parts gin to one part vermouth you do need to limit yourself to just one though. Bond may have been able to down quite a few of these at a time and still aim a gun but in reality this is one strong drink!

Ikea # 3 | The Hall

*The third post in a series of eight about IKEA at home. Previous posts #1 The Bathroom and #2 The Office.

Hallways can be tricky spaces to decorate. They're usually long, narrow and often lack much needed natural light.

Pasta all'Uovo | Fresh Egg Pasta

Last weekend I was flying solo. David spent three days in beautiful, sunny Italy. He flew over early Friday morning on the red-eye flight with his friend Brian to visit their friend Carl who lives in Terni. From the WhatsApps their trip looked amazing!

Matcha Time

I'm a big fan of matcha tea. I have it every afternoon around 3pm to prevent that after-lunch slump and get my energy and focus up to deal with everything the little ones throw at me!
