Beached quail

I went for a jokey title for a little laugh. Do you ever find post titles are difficult to decide on?! 

In reality, we just bought some quail eggs! I'm really excited to try anything new, as I think there are so many things out there that you could end up loving if you just gave it a chance. Quail eggs was certainly one of them. They are dinky and really quite beautiful. 

We shared them with Michaels dad, and ended up with 4 each. I chose to have two fried and two boiled. Both ways were delicious (fry til white and not snotty, boil for two minutes) and I wouldn't hesitate to have them again. I like that the white to yolk ratio was more equal than with a chickens egg. 

On that note, my sister has chickens now! And I also can't wait to try out her home grown eggs. Further to that, we have a little farm up the road that sells duck and goose eggs which I'd also like to sample... Have you ever tried any of them? What did you think? Would you try them?

where for art thou, perfect blazer?

I have been looking for a blazer for years, and that's not even an exaggeration. I just want a simple, plain, black blazer that looks better undone that needing to be done up. is that so hard to find? Yes. I try on every blazer I see, and they are just not the ones. I want a blazer to wear with everything; dresses, trousers, jeans, leggings. I'm looking for something that fits like this

so it can obviously be found. all these lucky ladies found theirs! am I just the wrong shape?! I will not give up my search, so watch this space.

So what's happened since we last spoke?

I think this should be a regular feature, probably for a Monday in reality. And for those of you who listen to Greg James on radio one please ignore the familiarity.

-Since my absence, my sister has given birth to a beautiful baby boy name Isaac Charles Peter. Isaac's sister Isabelle is now 18 months so Natalie certainly has her hands full! 

-I have gained more confidence in my job, and I think I've found my feet a bit more. I had my three month review and had feedback that I'm doing well. 

-We had Mother's Day, and I got my mum a little plant and a plant pot :)

-Michael and I went to Bournemouth for a couple of days away, we went to their sealife centre and on the pier. 

-I've become well and truly addicted to a particular brand of hummus

-The flat finally has internet! 

-Michael finally moved out of his room on camp, so it's definitely official that we've moved in together 

-I've got my highest score in bejewelled blitz 

And that's about it really, what have I kissed with you guys? Please update me I'm very interested! Xx
