A little snapshot of what I've been up to recently. As you can see, a hell of a lot of eating has been involved over the last couple of weeks! Me & Mr Red Bird are real foodies & I have a real sweet tooth too. As it's Chinese New Year we made the most of last weekend and ate our body weight in Dim Sum - ha! We went to out favourite place to enjoy Dim Sum which is Sky Restaurant in Bristol. The ingredients is super fresh and worth paying a little extra for I think. As it was such a beautiful day, we were lucky enough to walk off our HUGE lunch up in Clifton & Ashton Court which is always so pretty in the sunshine. We've had so much rain over the last couple of months, it was sad seeing the grounds so waterlogged. I feel for all the people suffering with the floods right now...

A few friends mentioned of late about Swing classes, so I grabbed the first opportunity I could and went along to my first class on Wednesday with my friend Penny. It was a full class doing Charleston Swing & I had such good fun, I signed up for a run of classes which are once a week. I really can't wait to learn more now that I've got the first bit under my belt without landing on my face.

This weekend we've been fighting with the weather again but had to get out and about. Harts Bakery is always a good start to my morning. Mr Red Bird had the vegetarian sausage roll & I had a bread and butter pudding thing filled with homemade marmalade and chocolate filling - yom yom! We spent the afternoon walking about all over the city dodging the wind and rain and finished up having an amazing Chinese dinner to fill our hungry bellies and to rest our weary legs.

I hope you all had a good one too...!
