Friday Favourites

We're having a little celebration tonight as we've signed the papers for the new flat!!
It's literally down the road from us
It's a little smaller but so bright and airy
And after living in a basement flat for nearly 7 years it makes a difference

I'm really looking forward to a fresh start, in a more modern, brighter flat
But I feel sad leaving this one
It's full of memories
It's the place we first started our little family (got Sisco) 
I didn't realised how I'd feel
Also, as it's on a busy main road Sisco will have to be an indoor cat
And we feel so bad about that, like we're taking away her freedom
But letting her out is not something we'd chance
It's common in London to have indoor cats, but that doesn't make it any easier
We have to keep telling ourselves she has a good home and her life could have been very different if we hadn't adopted her
But the guilt's still there
Wow, this started out happy but turned into a bit of a Debbie downer post

Do you have an indoor cat?
Do they adapt easily?

I'm really looking forward to setting up and decorating my work area
My desk is next to a huge window so I'll have the sun on me all day
It's going to make such a difference

Ok onto this weeks faves

Have you seen the new Kitty donuts in Twinkie's shop?
Too cute! 
The jewelry in this shop is beautiful!
'I don't want dis!'
This jumper is so cute!
Just look at that little tummy!
I love this list of creative packaging 
Have a lovely weekend!

Recipes for Sunny Days

What beautiful weather we've been having!
With it being warmer I've been having lots of fresh juices and raw soups and I have to admit  I feel pretty good
It's so much easier to eat healthy when it's warmer
I've been on the lookout for recipes
It's easy to get stuck in a rut of making the same things

So here are a few that are on my list, I thought I'd share

I don't think I've ever had red Swiss chard
But this tart sounds good
This Coriander, Lime and Chickpea salad sounds so fresh
Perfect for a hot day
I still need to make this Rhubarb and Banana 'Ice cream'
With my ice creams I usually just stick to frozen berries and Banana
But try and add a bit of Cacao
So good! 
I love Tofu as there's so much you can do with it
I'll definitely be making this spicy Orange Tofu and Peppers
Sometimes simple is best
You really can't beat Tomato and Basil together
These crackers sound yummy 
Doesn't this grilled sweet Potato salad sound good?
What are your go to meals when the weather gets warmer?

♥ Monday Etsy Loves ♥ I'm in love with Edward Scissorhands ♥

I've mentioned this film SO MANY TIMES!
(Just check the Edward Scissorhands label)
I love it, I've seen about a hundred times
It makes me smile and breaks my heart 
I was lucky enough to see it in the cinema a while back and I'd happily go again
It was magical
I could go on all day, but you may get bored
So just feast your eyes on the beauty

But I'm back to share my faves of the week

Here we go!

A 96-year-old Toronto resident is selling her amazing retro home and it's beautiful!

 It reminds me of The Madonna Inn
