Gobble gobble?

I know, today's post is rather late. I didn't have time this morning ... I told you, I've been super busy at work. It hasn't stopped and is showing no signs of letting up next week either!

Which is annoying because I would love nothing more than to spend some more time trying to squeeze or tiny budget into a September trip to Turkey (!) I have secured the leave and we've found an awesome deal on Emirates flights with our Discovery discounts ... but the rest is proving tricky. We'd obviously land in Istanbul. And I MUST get to Hot Air Balloon over Cappadocia and swim in Pamukkale's travertine pools (Didya see? That'd tick of *two* Life List items. Score!). And after a little research, some time in Fethiye wouldn't go amiss either! I found the perfect trip itinerary ... but it's only like double our budget :/


Anyway, other than the crazy of work and the highs and lows of the possibility of Turkey, it's been a pretty cool but quiet week.

On Monday evening I had another attack of Domestic Godessery (well I guess on Sunday actually, since that's when I bought the ingredients and planned the meal). I made the MOST AMAZING salad. It's a Mandarin Broccoli Salad and we served it with chicken breasts. It was quite simple to make and I'll definitely be making it again. I even had the leftovers for lunch on Tuesday. Yum. Yum.

No SCM on Tuesday. The Trucker and I have been very lazy this week. Although Pepper has been getting her daily walks (of course). Lookit how she's grown! Aside from that we've barely done anything.

I did get to do a Birthday celebration for a friend at work tho. Which has been such fun! I designed a quote we got printed on canvas and raised some cash and managed to get her some proper French Champagne and macaroons. (Can you tell we went with a French theme :) ) And the birthday girl loved it :)
