Milo says happy Friday, friends. I’m not sure I’ve ever been more happy to see the end of a week!
Last Friday we tried Oscar and Rosie’s pizza for the first time (at Das Kino in Nottingham). We had a frenchman pizza, with a garlic base and goats cheese and beetroot on top. It was SO yummy! Das Kino was a somewhat weird place to hang out on a Friday night though with very loud DJ music from 6pm! We felt somewhat odd stuffing our faces with pizza! I would definitely go back at lunchtime though, and the cocktails were delicious.
I also did some baking – some cookies and some homemade marshmallows that I’ll be sharing with you in the next few weeks! Bella enjoyed the box of goodies that Lakeland kindly sent me too! They sent me some awesome stuff that I’ll share in the next few weeks, including chocolate for my homemade marshmallows (yum) and metallic sharpies (life made).
I had the idea to make these Christmas tree cut out cookies when I was at a gig with Lee that was not my tupe of music… boredom is excellent for creativity as it turns out!
On Sunday I headed to the park to hang out with some friends and their little boy – it was such a beautiful and warm autumn day to be outside! Not at all like November – the upside to global warming!
This week’s City WI was a fun one – we made Christmas table centrepieces! Using spruce, holly, ivy and other festive bits and bobs.
It was really cool, apart from getting stabbed by holly continuously!
This is mine – what do you think? It should hopefully last until Christmas if I keep it watered.
Today at work I’ve organised a Children in Need Bake Sale! I’ve made about 35 vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with delicious dark chocolate sour cream frosting and pudsey spotted sprinkles! Fingers crossed we raise lots of money for charity!
Last week I started reading Amy Poehler’s book Yes please. It’s a little difficult to read on an ereader (the pictures!) but I’m enjoying it!
What new autumn tv shows should I be watching? I’m rewatching Gilmore Girls at the moment (the BEST) and we’re also watching Orange is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy. Anything else awesome I should see?
Oh, and of course, I can’t go without my daily Barefoot Contessa fix! Please tell me you’ve seen it so we can talk about it!
