Happy Friday! It’s another beautiful, mild and sunny autumn day here in Nottingham! Since I didn’t bring you a snapshots from my week post last week (I showed you how to put on a three course dinner party instead!), we’ve got photo’s from the last couple of weeks in today’s post! Oddly, since SO much has been happening, I haven’t taken pictures of much, so it’s mainly cats, and cake!
My friend Erin invited us over for Afternoon tea (and a piano recietal!). She made the most amazing eight strand plait bread (from Bake-Off!), as well as delicious chocolate fudge – it’s a similar recipe to the one I like making, which you just make by melting lots of chocolate and stirring in condensed milk.
I baked a VIVID Halloween layer cake to take along – I’ll bring you guys the recipe soon!
And we watched in amazement as her little boy Finley walked around the room (with his push-along cart!).
The rest of my time can be summed up by saying – baking! I’ve now moved on from Halloween to CHRISTMAS! Hurrah! I know it’s still October but I’m always super excited for Christmas, and I think I’ve waited long enough…
And cats! No, I didn’t buy this onesie, it was for children. Part of me is very sad about that.
Good news on the cat front – Milo has decided he DOES want to be a nice big brother and has started playing with, and even grooming the kittens! We’re over the moon that it all seems to be working out so well.
And the rest of my time has been spent nibbling on leftover macarons from Lidl, and another new variety of Dairy Milk (it must be a day ending in y!) – Chips Ahoy. It’s okaaay – the Oreo version is still way better than anything else. But as ever, don’t look at the ingredients list, this ain’t real food!
This weekend I’m SUPER excited to watch my good friend Emma get married tomorrow! The scrabble cookies you can see up above are her wedding favours – personalised for each guest! I’ll post some better pictures of them on my instagram tomorrow once the guests have seen them.
What are you up to this weekend?
