So March got skipped over – I was so busy that I kind of forgot most of what I actually did that month… but April was great, so here are a few of my favourites from last month!
1. I made some more hand-blown Easter eggs! The one with the boxing hares is my favourite of the three I painted this year.
2. Egg rolling at Kelvingrove Park! It was my first time ever and Huxley made it the funniest experience! He loves eggs, so he ran after the first egg that went down the hill and immediately started eating his snack. Then he noticed more eggs tumbling down the hill around him and started going from one to another eating them as fast as he could, he probably thought he was the luckiest dog in the world. We ended up picking up as many as we could, but he still managed to eat 5 or 6, which really can’t be that good for a little dog… he seemed happy enough though.
3. New plant friends! I love being out in the forest or on a beach and since that isn’t always possible due to the weather here, it’s nice to have some of the outdoors inside too for those days I’m stuck at my desk. I ordered a few plants from Perfect Plants – highly recommend! They are really healthy, good quality plants and there was only one broken leaf. They also have a great selection, so I have a little wish list going now. I got a little maranta (aka prayer plant) from a shop around the corner too and I am in love with it. I’m still not bored of watching the leafs fold themselves up at night.
4. I brought my empty Lush containers back to one of the shops and the girls marvelled at the French on some of the labels! I’ve been collecting them for a while, so there are a few from Canada. Apparently there was at least product they actually don’t make anymore so I guess I need to bring the pots back more often… Anyways, I got a free face mask in return for this long-term recycling project and I chose the BB Seaweed. It smells like lavender and seems to be gentle enough for my sensitive skin.
5. Pierogis! It’s been years since I last made any and I made a batch of cheese and onion and another of bacon (which were kind of like if a baked potato was in a dumpling) and it took about a day and half from start to finish. Never again am I making dumplings on my own unless it’s a tiny batch, which I don’t seem to be able to do… I’m also pretty sure I managed to bruise my hands…
6. Wax melts from Candelle & Co! I met Danielle at the Pop Up Shop in Kirkintilloch back in March and have only just finally gotten around to trying out some of her wax melts. They are amazing – I’m currently in love with the Salted Caramel and Pistachio.
