Hey. How was your weekend? We had such a sunny one here in London! And while I was inside for quite a lot of it (more on that later), I still managed to sit outside and get a good dose of Vitamin D for as long as I could.
Do you ever get the Sunday blues? You know, feeling a little down in the dumps/panicky as soon as 4:00 p.m. rolls around and you realize that you haven't done as much as you wanted to and that your morning alarm is just a few precious hours away? No? Just me then.
I spent yesterday hunting for things to cheer myself up and it turns out that there were plenty.
I arrived home on Friday to find the sweet bouquet (don't you love the box it came in?!) underneath the stairs for me ... it was from Udita, just to "bring some cheer", as she said in the card. But the funniest thing was - the card had been handwritten by the florist in St. John's Wood (Drake Algar, in case you're wondering) but it contained some of our funniest and most cringe-worthy inside jokes! I can't believe the florist had to write that all out by hand ... it definitely gave me a good laugh.
Mother's Day in the UK is next weekend. It's totally confusing for me because Mother's Day in the US is in May! I try to send my mom a Mother's Day card on both dates, but I found this sweet one pictured above at De Beauvoir Deli (I think I'm their biggest customer lately), which I plan to send to my mother-in-law, who some of you know is like a second mother to me.
I never splurge on ice cream, but ... salted caramel? Yes, please. This cost me a pretty penny at £6 (I balk at spending £4 on Ben & Jerry's), but it was worth it. Or, as my friend Laura commented over on Instagram, I'm worth it. At least, I keep telling myself that. Ha!
What's the most expensive ice cream you've ever splashed out on? Also: pistachio gelato in brioche in Sicily.
Have a great week.
