My week in pictures #72

Sunday, June 15

Made my wee cousin a snow white inspired birthday card (and sent if off in time for her actual birthday today). Ordered some new books and managed to complete my collection of 'A song of Ice and Fire' book- I'm well over half way in the series too!! My T in the park ticket arrived so exciting to think it is only 26 days. Did lots of baking for my dads bee keeper friends coming round for a visit. Watched Iron Man 3 last night- much much better than the 2nd one (luckily). Made my dad a Fathers Day card on the theme of bees- pretty pleased with how it turned out too.
This week started off with a trip to the doctors for my annual asthma check up. So happy that it is finally improving and my medicine has been halved from 500mg to 250mg. Never thought I would see the day when I wasn't dependant on my inhalers. 

With only a month to go until T in the Park 2014 Scott and I have been getting quite excited. On Wednesday we put up his tent (which is huge!!) and gave it a clean after the mess it got in last year with mud. It was quite a funny evening trying to figure it all out and solve some strange problems. We got it pretty clean though- you can see a picture here. My tickets arrived on Friday... I might have been checking the post box regularly since Wednesday when I noticed some people had got theirs. I drew a little picture on my white board and started a countdown too. Scott and I made chilli nachos for tea and watched even more USA kitchen nightmares... He is addicted. 

On Saturday my dads fellow bee keepers were coming round for an apiary visit. Afterwards they always have a cup of tea and some cakes which gave me a great excuse to get baking (as if I needed one). I made carrot cakes and plain sponge cakes as well as spinach and garlic muffins which were all delicious and went down really well. After they had all gone Scott came round for a BBQ dinner which was nice. He went home early to watch England get beat (a bit of a hobby in Scotland I'm afraid) and I retired to bed to watch Iron Man. You've got to love a super hero movie. 

Recently I've found it quite frustrating how my bloglovin' followers have increased yet the activity on my blog doesn't seem to. I get the same number of comments and post views. Any recommendations for getting over that problem? I want my readers to both enjoy my content and engage with me. Love to know what you think.

Hope everyone has had as good a weekend as I have. See you next week for some new posts. 

P.s. Today I put some things on ebay- would appreciate it if you would take a took at them. I want everything cleared from my wardrobe. 


  1. Looks like you had a good week Claire xx

  2. Aw, it looks like you had a lovely week. Yay for more books. I really enjoyed reading through Martin's series. Do you watch the TV show as well?

  3. Looks like you have had a good week, I wish I could get into Game of Thrones, but it isn't for me, I have seen some of the show and I like the hair!


Would love to know what you think about the post! I read every single one but if you have a question tweet me @gisforgingers. P.s. Comments make my day...
