What I'm doing

So as promised here is an update of what I'm doing.  I can't believe (I can totally believe) I'm reading the same book I was reading in December (in June) but I am actually almost finished.  The cinnamon buns - they look good? I made them for my friend's birthday at the weekend, and we ate so many of them.  They were delicious.  It's Mary Berry's recipe and you'll have to get her book to get the recipe.  I've just tried almond milk for the first time and it's pretty nice.  Good on cereal and also in smoothies.  I'm also drinking a lot of nettle tea (as always) and some of the apple tea my grandma gave me for christmas.  And lastly I'm wishing my hair would chill the F out and that I could stop worrying about things that I know are going to be just fine.

Hello, are you new?

I got some cool new additions for my studio.  Two white cats, a clock that looks like a digestive biscuit, an Anglepoise lamp, and a Bodum teapot.  Ummm awesome christmas gifts! I love all of them and they totally make my day happier.


November and December happened rather quickly.  Some things happened, I'm not entirely sure in what order, but I'm pretty sure it all ended good.

Pined after ankle boots and felt useless during a few kitchen floor DIY emergencies.

Had my packaging printed on a lovely matt card, an upgrade from the flimsy paper packaging I was using.

Used a tacky christmas mug.  Made some moustaches on sticks for my friend's birthday party.  Drank some cocktails.

And finally, after weeks of 6am starts, postoffice runs, bubblewrap stock reordering and email inbox overload December 22nd popped up and it was time to close my laptop pack up my boyfriend's Mark 1 golf and drive across to Harrogate singing about ham egg and chips.

Had such a good break (this is me in Northumberland walking on the coast on new years eve.  It was windy but beautiful and the sky was so blue) that it has taken me a week to adjust to this whole getting up early thing again.  I think I'm almost there, just bear with me!  Lots of exciting things planned for this year.  Let's do this! x

2011 'scone (you see?)

Hello, it's me.  I'm here.  I'm back!

Can I take 5 to get my shit together - and in the meantime you can enjoy this photo of me stuffing my face with the last scone of 2011.  Do you want to know how delicious it was? So delicious.
