Happy Monday folks, so what’s  in store this week ? Apart from plenty of coffee. Although it’s only Monday I’m already gearing up for Friday (are we nearly there yet?) as I’m very excited to be going along to the @thewomensinstatute Christmas shindig. A day of creativity with flowers, table styling and golden baubles... and cake. Just bloody perfect ! 👌🏼😀. It’s going to be fabulously festive and I can’t wait. .

Drink the coffee and get stuff done. That’s definitely been this weeks mantra. Thank you to @pr_jax for the coffee and the pic ☕️📸. Lovely to see you, as always, and make plans. Looking forward to working on great stuff with you. Think we’re gonna need more coffee 😀

Finally, it’s weekend. So what ya doin’ ? Mine is shaping up nicely into a ‘if Mancs did Hygge’ kind of weekend. Copious amounts of tea and toast and a binge Corrie catchup. I’d say you can’t get cosier than that. 
Also this afternoon, the proud Mancunian theme continues and we are off to see Mike Leigh’s @peterloomovie . I know this is not a cosy subject, but the release of the film about this historic event has been eagerly awaited in the Clarke household. Also we do love the wonderful Maxine Peake. 
I can’t take credit for my toast pic that belongs to Calum Lewis 📸 .

Last night I was supposed to be at @weblognorth ‘s #weblogbiz meet-up with @_hollygoeslightly but instead I succumbed to the bug currently working its way through the Clarke household 🤢. So instead my evening consisted of a lie down in a darkened room.  However through the power of the podcast I did spend it with @kat_horrocks #putyourselffirst and @me_and_orla #hashtagauthentic (thank you to @easyinstamcr for introducing me to this ! 👍😊) and a good cup of twinings tea to ease my troubled mind...and tummy 😷. Hope the evening went well ladies .

The youngest Clarke has had a sickness bug for the last 24 hours which means I’ve spent most of my time mopping up and sanitising the house 🤢🤮😷. On the bright side things seem to be returning to normal and it’s the final of @britishbakeoff tonight ( come on Ruby !!!)Fingers crossed I can watch it without having to get the bleach and rubber gloves out 🙄😲 Also my lovely new book has arrived. Diana Henry’s ‘How to eat a peach’ is a gorgeous collection of menus and stories. It’s a real beauty of a book and has a soft furry cover ...just like a peach 🍑 #gbbo2018 #foodstories #storiesoffood #favouriterecipes #foodandtravel #howtoeatapeach #wordsandfood #recipebook #recipebookcollection #newrecipebook #cookbookaddict #cookbooksofinstagram

I know I’m a little late for #winewednesday but this week has been all about the good stuff so who cares. I’m now a fully signed up pupil of the @manchesterwineschool and looking forward to my course in January and I’ve also managed to get my tickets for the @corkofthenorthsale wine fair in November at Sale Town Hall. So cheers to that too. .

You gotta love a Monday Mood Board. I’m busy prepping this afternoon in readiness for working  with the fab @aligroves next month. Ali is a talented photographer but is also a great picture storyteller for businesses. I love that her work always captures emotion and spirit. So not at all like my picture of magazine cuttings and random vintage plates and spoons ☺️. .

Good morning to @thepourwino . I have just discovered your great #whatiloveaboutwine conversation. So what do I love about wine ?... It’s how it reconnects us to moments now past and it enables us to travel back to places we have loved. (A bit like a ‘time Lord’ then ? ☺️) Trips to new places come alive through the discovery of wines and it’s how we connect to the people, history and culture of a new place. 
A glass of fino, Manzanilla or Amontillado and I will forever be in Seville. One sip of pale rose’ and I’m re-visiting a wonderful family holiday in Provence. A glass of Pol Roger is always bubbling over with memories of special days from wedding anniversaries, to summer birthdays in the garden and Christmas lunch. And a shared Sunday Roast is not complete without Rioja. 
Wine is an echo through time, it’s a storyteller and it’s a industry full of passion and creativity. It highlights man’s capacity to take something from nature and create something magical. .

I shall be wearing pink on Friday 19th October in support of the @breastcancernow Wear It Pink Campaign, raising funds for life saving research. My gal pals and I did also jump the gun and had a positively pink fund raiser get-together last weekend with pink outfits, pink food, palest pink rose’ wine. My lovely new pink plates from @object_style also made their first appearance at my table. It was a great evening for a great cause. We raised a glass to loved ones lost and those affected by breast cancer. Will you be wearing pink on Friday ?

It’s been a #mondayfunday☀️ sort of day. I finally took the plunge and signed up to a beginners yoga class for later in the week.  So here’s a tree pose picture to set the mood 😁,taken on a recent outing to @ntdunhammassey .Enjoy. Here’s hoping the class is as tranquil and serene #cheshire #cheshirephotography #nationaltrustnorthwest #naturephotography #tranquil #beginnersyoga #treepose #mondaymotivation #autumn🍁
It’s Friyay. Time to get your glam on for the weekend. I’m looking forward to having the girls round for a  #wearitpink get together for @breastcancernow . It will be an evening of pink, pink and more pink with pink outfits, pink food and pink wine. I shall also be dressing my table in pink which means I can use my fab new pink plates from @object_style 👍💕 I may not be able to pull off the glamour of the hotel  flowers in my pic, but I’ll give it a go.  #friday  #fridayvibes #weekendmood #wearitpink2018 #breastcancerawarenessmonth #beatbreastcancer #fridayflowers #tablestyling #foodstories #pinkflowers #hotelflowers #transformyourtable #pink #lovepink #weblognorth #blogandbeyond

Here’s a little reminder of how flippin’ gorgeous the weather was yesterday. I took advantage and enjoyed a trip around @ntdunhammassey Absolutely beautiful. The deer looked majestic and there were also loads of ladybirds 🐞 🐞 Normal service has resumed this morning - back at my desk and skies are grey. On the plus side the weekend is now on the horizon. Does a shot from yesterday count as a #thursdaythrowback ? #thursdaythoughts #nationaltrust #nationaltrustnorthwest #cheshire #cheshirephotography #manchesterphotography #naturephotography #shotoniphone #nofilter #outdoorspaces #outdoors #freelancerlife #nature #mothernaturerocks #autumn🍁
