I've had a fabby weekend - spent in the company of many good friends. Saturday I was at a wedding in Edinburgh - it was scary when the best man said of the groom "I first met David 20 years ago".......has it really been that long......then we realised that it was 20 years since 5 of us lived together in Glasgow - a great year of fun and laughter and the cementing of lifelong friendships. The gang includes a friend I met when I was 3, another I met when I was 11 and university friends........partners and children.
I don't usually post photos of friends here without their permission - so sorry - but that's me in my wedding finery. Not the dress I mentioned in my last post, but the other one that I tried on last week - I sent my mum back to Glasgow to buy it for me (and took the stone coloured one back to the shop yesterday). I am happy with the decision - will definitely get a lot of wear out of this dress. As usual, my favourite shop COS came up trumps!
Today I managed a quick trip to Habitat - finally bought a couple of light fittings - haven't had any lightshades since I moved house last August.....now the bedrooms will have lightshades at least - still looking for the living room though - before I headed home to Dundee and an early dinner with friends - Greek style - (Marios parents and sister were visiting) - roast leg of lamb, fava dip - a recipe from Santorini and dolmades made by Marios' mum. Thanks guys!
I was excited having made a trip to Wait*rose on my way home (Edinburgh is the nearest branch of this upmarket supermarket chain) to find giant couscous! I have been trying to find a source of giant couscous ever since I first tasted a salad from Marks & Spen*cer made with giant couscous, wheatberries and roast butternut squash and wanted to make my own. But giant (often called Lebanese) couscous is hard to find....imagine my delight when I found it in Wait*rose.
