Friday finds us smiling, as we welcome a glorious four day weekend, Thank you very much Your Majesty!  We are planning much merriment with friends and family, so get you into the spirit of the weekend, here are a few finds:

Make some pretty bunting out of old tee shirts/sheets/jeans

The crafty and lovely Dot shares how to make your own bunting, in five simple steps to liven up your garden or street party:

Make (and drink) a Mojito Royale 


I discovered this delight of a cocktail when out on Tuesday celebrating a new job… it would be rude not to try one of these this weekend – the title begs you to! Mojito + champagne = a potent and delightful combo.


  • 20g Mint leaves, plus
  • 2 sprigs to garnish
  • 3 tbsp Granulated sugar
  • 100ml White rum
  • 40ml Lemon juice
  • 400ml Champagne, chilled


  1. Using the end of a rolling pin, muddle the mint and sugar in a Pyrex jug or cocktail shaker. Add the rum and lemon juice. Shake or mix with ice.
  2. Strain into a flute and top up with the chilled champagne. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
  3. Enjoy!

Listen to this little tune (or something equally as happy) in an attempt to woo the sun to come out to play:

May your weekend be full of friends, pimms, cake and long lie ins!
