Bonjourno! And Happy Friday (finally, I know). I haven't done a diary-esque post in forever, but I love reading them on other people's blogs so thought I best get my ass in gear and put one together. First up I wanted to share my new shoes because they're one of the best things I've ever set eyes on. You know how I love a good pair of lace-ups, so when I saw these on ASOS they were in my bag faster than you can say 'awkward tan lines'. They're quite comfy too - I lasted all night in them last Saturday - which was a very welcome surprise.

Then yesterday I took Rob along to The Silver Darling for lunch for a belated Valentine's meal; long story short I bought him a voucher and this is the first chance we've had to use it. Actually that was just a short story rather than a long story short. We've been there a couple of times before, being the seafood fiends we are, and as always it didn't disappoint. We both had the Mouclade (mussels in a coconut, chilli and coriander broth) to start and then things got diverse at mains, with Rob having the slow cooked blade of beef and me on the hake with chorizo, squid and white bean puree.

We're finally back in the flat after a burst boiler/no electricity drama so I'm spending the weekend tidying, clearing up and doing some DIY, which I'm weirdly excited about. My 10 year old self would feel so betrayed.
