Our latest little project has been to make our porch more welcoming (and to try to warm it up a bit). So, having had all new doors and windows installed last week - we decided to paint the porch and put down coconut matting. So we have gone from this (previous owners stuff - only original photo I had)To This... pale blue to match the landing and stairs (can you tell we had some paint leftover)

Work has been so busy of late - I feel like I have hardly seen the light of day...so this morning, seeing the sun shining - we took a stroll down to the sea front to blow the cobwebs out! Sat back at my desk all rosy cheeked and wind swept did wonders for the brain cells!
It is a strange thing, how you can miss something so much after only doing it for a while? We moved to the sea side back in June '09 and since then have being walking a lot more than we EVER did before. Our first winter here, I have personally realised how I miss walking if we don't get out for a few days! Who'd have though it.
On that note - look at this....

Just look at all those lovely little suns!!! Note to self: Get out and go walking this weekend!!!
On another note: I made some YUMMY (even though I do say so myself) cookies yesterday...so yummy they are almost gone!!
Oat, Sultana, Choc Chip and Pecan Cookies
They look enormous in this photo but it is just an extreme close up I promise. I kind of used a mish mash of recipe's so wasn't entirely sure how they would turn out but both Mr Blogger and I agree they are on the keep list! Just the right combination of crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty, yumminess once requires in a cookie!
Happy Wednesday everyone!
