10 Favourites // April Edition

Drip drip drop little April showers…la la la does anyone actually know the rest of the words? Because I don't. Well I've been a busy B this month keeping myself amused whilst William is rehearsing up north. Highlights being- spending quality time with my bezzie who's back from tour, baking to my heart's content and I got a job! <3

Song of the month: Friday I'm In Love - The Cure

Filling my freezer with mint Cornettos during that mini heat wave YUM.

Being cast in The Two Gentlemen of Verona and Hay Fever! I'm super excited and will keep you all updated when I start rehearsals in June :)

A FIRST - a lovely fellow blogger La Coco Noire has written a whole post about one of my recipes. I was touched and so happy she loved her Gooey Banana Cookies as much as I loved mine! Thanks Katie <3

The Betty Stamp had its Half birthday! 6 months of blogging and still loving every minute. I feel some sort of celebratory cake recipe coming on...

Attacking my over grown garden. It's like therapy - de weeding, mowing the lawn, now I want to cover it in pretty flower pots & orange trees for the summer and grow a little herb garden.

Being treated to a hair cut, colour and manicure at Gielly Green! I felt very pampered. The hair wash chairs are like beds! And the Essie polish I ended up buying because I loved the colour so much - Maximillion strasse-her.

Being able to be in the same room as my bezzie. Supping on pimms in the sunshine and having a well needed gas. She's never allowed to work abroad ever again. I've put my foot down.

Singing at the Epsom races with The Dukebox Singers and rehearsing in preparation for the Derby & ladies day. Come say hello if you're going!

Easter! Everything about Easter was lovely - up in York with William's family eating ALL of the choccie, ALL of the roast lamb and proper Yorkshire puds :) Also receiving my Lindt bunny from Mandy at One Slice of Lemon blog. What a sweetie.

Yummy brunch at No.32 in Clapham Old Town. If you're a London bunny then you must check it out, complete with twinkly roof terrace which will be glorious in the summer time.

What have been your favourite moments of April lovely people?

For last month's 5 faves have a peak over here :)

  1. Oh well done with being cast Betty! I've never been involved in a production (unless you count being the inn-keepers wife in the nativity whilst in reception class!) so I can only imagine what's involved. Love the colour of the nail varnish! Gorgeous!
    I too love gardening, it's just so therapeutic Looking forward to seeing your half birthday cake :)
