Greetings! How are you doing?
I’m checking in! Let’s see, what has been going on around here?
Bonfire Night celebrations with my family – it was freeezzzing but super fun! I went on the most fun but terrifying fairground ride ever too!
We got a new kitty! This is Minerva – I call her Minnie as well as Minerva, and Lee calls her the Minotaur. She’s actually the sister of our other cat Snape, who we adopted back in July from Nottingham Kitty Cafe.
She’s settling in great and loves being petted and snuggling with us. She and Snape get on pretty well, although she’s not always keen on his rambunctious approach to playtime!
Are you near Nottingham? I visited Small Food Bakery for the first time after hearing amazing things about it and it exceeded all my wildest expectations. CARB FANS ASSEMBLE.
Lately, I’ve been baking… or rather no baking, a lot of different stuff! I made batches of my no bake malteser slice, plus nutella truffles, red velvet bars, chocolate ginger cookies, mars bar mousse, and lots more to share with you before Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas,
Next weekend I’m going to Gilmore Giving, a Gilmore Girls themed Thanksgiving afternoon! I’m making chocolate pecan pie and we’re going to watch the first two episodes of new Gilmore Girls. SO EXCITED!
