My Evening

T and I spend most of our evenings together. It doesn't often happen that one of us goes out somewhere alone. Last night, he had one of the sporadically organised boys nights. I think they're supposed to be once a month, but seeing as it's boy organised, planned and becomes a little less regular.

He left at about 7.30pm and once I'd cooked dinner I curled up on the sofa to watch the second part of the latest BBC adaptation of Emma. Ahh, a sofa, blankets and a period drama. What more could a girl want?

When that had finished I began making blueberry muffins from this recipe. I'd seen on sale blueberries in the supermarket earlier in the week, and was reminded of the delicious raspberry muffins we were served for breakfast on our anniversary weekend away.

I had to try. And this is how they came out...

I'd have liked if they'd risen a little more, but we tried them this morning and they were good. I'm definitely excited about the muffins-for-breakfast idea.

I also put our honeymoon photos in to an album last night - T went shopping and came back with these. I will put our wedding cards into the black one when I get some more time.

Finally I rounded off the night with a call to my sisters. I only got to talk to one of them in the end but it was so lovely to catch up with her.

Now I'm off to fly solo at Besom for the day. This weekend brings a camping trip with friends. Hopefully it won't rain all weekend and I'll have some photos to share next week. Have a lovely weekend!


  1. I ADORE blueberry muffins!

  2. These muffins look SO good. I bet having fresh blueberries made them even better!

  3. Oooh muffins for breakfast sounds good! I want some! The pics are great too, love the blueberries.

    Funny story: my dad goes to the pub every Friday night to hang out with his friends. When he's gone, my mom stays at home, watching a period drama. This week it was the new Pride and Prejudice, the last week it was Sense and Sensibility, before that it was the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice... cracks me up! ;)

  4. I LOVE the BBC version of Emma! Such a lovely way to spend an evening. :)

  5. Sounds like cosy, girly, autumnal fun!
    My tip for high-rise cakes: Add an extra egg and whip until your arm (almost) falls off! ;)
    Was great that you called on Monday to catch up with me too!
