Today was terribly exciting, as today i met Father Christmas. Ok so i was really accompanying my 7 year niece but i still met him, so i have no problem with bragging about it.

The highlight though was meeting the reindeer. REAL reindeer. Feeding Rudolf and Comet, rubbing Rudolf's nose and making my Christmas wish was the definite highlight of the day, heck my whole week in fact. Just look how beautiful Rudolf is.

Sunday nights are just not the same without a weekly dose of 'Downton Abby', however i have a feeling that my new favourite Sunday night TV show is 'Any Human Heart'. Logan Mountstuart, possibly the best name i've heard in a long time. Anyone else watch it tonight?..... Beautiful.


Not everyones ideal wake up call on a Sunday morning, but anyone who knows me will tell you of my obsession with dead animals and taxidermy, so naturally this fascinated me. Thank you naughty kitty, whichever one of you it was.

Anyway, enough of that. Today was all about cooking and baking delicious home made treats. I had already arranged to visit my lovely, and more importantly, hot ginger friend Helen Marshall for afternoon tea, and come on you can't arrive empty handed can you? Being a chilly and dull November afternoon i thought rice pudding would be simply perfect, and gosh it was indeed. Being the first time i've attempted it, i think i did a marvelous job (not that it was by any means hard, but still).
So when i arrived at the home of Helen, we decided to make Spanakopita, using the hand written recipe given to me by my Greek Cyproit Mother.
Yet again, DELICIOUS. We are quite the culinary team i'd say.

And to finish..... Fruit scones. Need i say more? This day was just splendid, but golly am i full.


Not my usual Sunday. Sunday's are for spending money, not making it. However this week saw the opposite. My little Ruby Blue took to the road as part of a charity fundraiser my mum's friend was organising. Vintage treats for all.

Work over, it was time for my preferred Sunday activities. With it being bonfire night over the weekend, sparklers obviously had to make an appearance at some point. And what better way to sparkle than with Carly Hind (we're probably just in love). She can stay.
