Friday Five Blog Hop

blog hop button photo bloghop1.jpg

Came across this blog hop, and maybe it's cos I'm on mid-term with time on my hands, or maybe I'm looking for a way to commit to regular posts.
Anyway, Jessee suggests a wrap-up of the week as one post, so I will go with that.

It's been a quiet week. Normally, my mid-term is for catching up with friends, housework and odd jobs. Because of having been sick, I decided to keep things quiet, and didn't make any arrangements. I did cleaning and some organisation, some walking and yoga, but nothing like the usual "tearing around".
And my body is thanking me for that.
This is a lovely soup I had on Monday in town in Avoca (oooh, one of my favourite shops, great food, fab clothes) just look at that lovely multiseed bread
and I haven't quite figured out the picture below, is it one person or more?
Each of the figures moved parts of themselves at different times, but there's no way it was 5 people!
Hope to see you over at the Friday Five Bloghop!


  1. I'm a little confused by that last picture. Was it 5 real people? Cause they're really good at standing still. LOL Glad you're feeling better. When do you go back to school? We just started a three day weekend. No 'real' break until the first week in April. Glad, too, that you joined the hop with Jess!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up to the blog hop! Glad to hear you are feeling better - and wow, that soup looks so good... kind of made me feel like making a batch of tomato basil soup. My husband will thank you for getting me cooking, LOL Have a nice few days off and hope to see you back next Friday!

  3. Mimi, that lunch is one of the wonderful memories I have of Dublin. Wherever we were for lunch there was always great soup and that wonderful brown bread. I can taste it even now.

    All the people in the photo look different...I thought it was one of those tableaux like the drama students make around here. A little movement now and then just to get our attention. In case we thought it was not live people.

  4. Standing statues kinda give me the creeps, though I'm always amazed at how they can stay still for so long! (Stopping by from Friday Five!) :)

  5. Glad to hear you are feeling better! It's probably best to take the time and rest so I'm glad you are.
    If something moved on all five then I'd say five people. I think it would be fascinating to watch them. I couldn't be still for a minute. :)

  6. I like the look of that lunch!
    I think that maybe you should have touched each person to see if they were real! They are a bit creepy but I have to admire the way they keep so still.
    I think it probably was 5 people though I've never seen more than one at a time over here.
    Hope you have a happy weekend and glad you are on the mend.

  7. Mmm... that soup looks delish! Isn't Avoca where we had lunch when we met up?

  8. Dear Mimi, that soup looks good. As for the last picture, are these real people or statues? They could absolutely be real people actually.;)
    Wanted to tell you that I unpacked some of my boxes that were in storage and found the book of poems I won for your giveaway once, it was so nice to read it again.;)
    Have a great week ahead,

  9. Super soup, Mimi. Any left? LOL
    I think those five statues must be five real people.
    Two ways to find out:
    1. Offer them some soup
    2. Tickle them


    Glad you are feeling better.

  10. I say 5 real people. What do I know :)?
