A Hive of Activity.........

This weekend has been a hive of activity in the Chez Sophie household.
Saturday started with a trip out with Ruthie to pick up some Freecycle goodies, then we took a leisurely drive along the coast to one of our favourite charity shops (Adur Furniture Network). No bargains there this week, but worth a visit anyway.
With rumbling tummies calling for food we decided to go for brunch at my new favourite cafe, Pestle & Mortar in Worthing. One Yummy Organic Full English Breakfast & Latte later we were ready to attack TKMAX where I can spend hours in the home ware department which is where I found my my treats for this week.
About a month ago I saw some lovely white picture frames in there, Perfect for the blue room!I decided to be good and not buy them but ever since I have not stopped thinking of them and I have looked for them every time I go in. Well they had 3 on the shelf so I had the lot!
I have the perfect photos to go in them and can't wait to get them on the wall.
I also found a beautiful large white wooden tray which I had also seen before, but this time it had a RED sticker in it so it was a double bargain!! It is now sitting on my New Oak Refectory Dinning Table from Laura Ashley - My mid week bargain as it was Ex display, No chairs yet but I will be on a serious hunt for them now.
I arrived home to find Gav in the garden mowing the lawn, and decided to help by edging the paving slabs which run up the length on the garden, I have to say they have never looked so good (as you could hardly see them before it is a great improvement!!)

Sunday came and it was time to get ready for the annual May Bank Holiday BBQ.
I dressed the tables & garden with candles & paper lanterns which looked beautiful as it got dark, and put pashminas on the chairs encase it got chilly.

We all sat round the Fire Pit till the early hours toasting marshmallows with chocolate buttons squished in between them, yummy.

Lots of Rose was drunk, all the food was eaten and bed beckoned.....
Well the sun has shone all weekend, we had a great time with Friends & Family what more could we want. xx
