sweeter than a raspberry royale

Welcome to a new week. No more parties or leaving do's to attend. So no more hang overs. I am busy with a little tidying, radio on, windows open, blinds up, sun streaming in. Fresh linen on the bed, mug of spiced tea in hand.

These are a few more pictures from last week, the raspberry royale followed by fresh raspberry and mint fizz. We also went to meet our new nephew Harry. A teeny little thing all swaddled up in a fluffy blanket he was surely sweeter than any pudding I have ever seen. Must go and visit him again very soon, we miss him already.

I had to dye my dark again, a mercy mission for Saturdays party, the faded roots were to disturbing to be seen and the red dye needs a pre lightening treatment to get the full effect of the Auburn. So next time will be red time. Don't think I chickened out!

Anyway back to laundry and doing the dishes. I hope your Monday has started well.

The raspberry and mint fizz looks and sounds divine - do you think swimmers are allowed such treats?!
Harry looks a real cutie - I love babies they are the best time wasters as all you can do is coo over them and cuddle them. I've got some pals who've just had a baby called Harry too - such a nice name.
Enjoy your domestic duties... I'm catching up on some work today.

I always check your blog before I go to school. I don't have enough time to make myself breakfast, and it's always nice to see that you have pretty food on your table. It's almost like I'm eating it myself on my way to school. Well, I worded that a little weird, but you know.

Also! Your nephew is adorable!
