Ooof. January has been a bit painful so far, hasn’t it? The weather’s dire, everyone’s back at work, and it’s at least 11 months before I can buy a Christmas tree again. Still, on the bright side, the days are getting a bit longer and I can *almost* feel the smallest hint of spring in the air.
This week was pretty good for me, as I celebrated my birthday. Amy and I got tiddly at my party on Saturday night and had a lovely time. I made a six layer rainbow cake, which I was pretty pleased with. It’s all about using proper professional paste food colourings – that’s the only way to get the really dazzling effect.
Amy posted a fantastic round up of what’s in season this month on She Cooks, She Eats. Eating in season is definitely worthwhile – it’s more economical, better for the environment, and the food tastes better too. I’m using it as an excuse to eat a LOT of parsnips this month.
Oh and did I mention my parents got a puppy over Christmas? He’s called Brodie and he’s GORGEOUS.
Though have you seen Amy’s dog? He’s all kinds of lovely too.
And to round off the week, here’s an amusing photo of Amy and me. How’s your week been? xx
