And those are my finds for this week.  I hope you saw something of interest!  

Tina and I had a wonderful lunch yesterday, although it did start off as a bit of a comedy of errors as the restaurant had no idea we were coming!  Anyways, all turned out right in the end, and we had a beautiful meal in a wonderfully vibrant restaurant! 


Everything was so colourful and the staff were all so helpful.  The food was fabulous.  I will be writing all about the experience soon on the food blog!  Tina has been such a good friend, I was so happy to treat her to a wonderful free lunch!  We both enjoyed very much!

A thought to carry with you  . . .
