..the kettle's just clicked. Let me pour you a fresh cuppa while you chow down on a delicious fry up. This is breakfast Back to the Old House style - and you're invited!
One of my favourite things to do at the weekend, aside from enjoy a good, long (well-deserved!) lie in, is tuck into a proper brekkie. You know, the kind of long, drawn out affair you just don't have time for on a weekday, when you're rushing, hair sodden (I rarely have time to blow dry!) to your car, a measly piece of toast in hand.
So, let's savour every last mouthful this morning. Let's really enjoy that refreshing cup of tea, and each bite of that carefully buttered toast. Heck, why don't we go for it and have the works: fresh orange, toast with jam or honey, hot, buttery scrambled eggs, bacon, and black pudding?
This weekend, I'm enjoying breakfast from some brand new kitchen bits and pieces; I'm drizzling honey on bread via the cute cream honey pot you see below, pouring fresh tea into some brand new stacking Aztec-style mugs, and sipping fresh, bitty orange juice from brand spanking new grey glass tumblers. Behold!
Had enough? Fancy a tea top up? Go on, it gives me chance to use another of those cute stacking mugs. Don't forget to top up on toast, too - it's fresh off the grill.
So, that was breakfast chez Back to the Old House. Hey, don't be a stranger; I enjoyed catching up over a fresh pot of tea, glass of orange and huge cooked brekkie. And even better when said breakfast is enjoyed from brand new crockery.
In terms of my kitchen-style, I'm not one of these matchy-matchy types, with pristine plates and sparkly silver cutlery. Instead, I prefer one off vintage finds and, you know, just something a bit different from identikit beige bits and pieces.
It's why I loved scouting around the shop I picked these autumn/winter goodies up from, trolley in tow.
So, now a little challenge? Have a guess where I picked up the pieces you see above. Clue: It's a supermarket. You may well be as surprised as I am at the delights on offer. Considering I picked up over eight items for just less than £50 - result!
Until next time. Go on, I'll do the washing up!
PS: Keep your eyes peeled over on Twitter; I'll soon be revealing where you can get your hands on these cheap and cheerful kitchen finds - you'll be impressed!
