Cook, Bake, Make… With Friends!

Did you have a fun weekend? If yours was a bit ‘meh’ and you didn’t particularly have a rave, then how about making it that bit shinier, happier, more satisfying next time? When flat hunting in London yesterday, I was asked what would make my perfect Sunday and it wasn’t too tricky to answer! I’d get some ‘productive stuff’ done in the morning *yawn*, and then I’d make a roast dinner or have a good gossip over home baked cakes at a friends house. If my dream sounds like your typical weekend, then I’m envious you lucky human you!


After a week commuting 3 hours a day, my weekends are usually taken up tidying the house and blogging, whoop! Not very sociable really, as much as I adore posting up my snaps for you all!

Revisiting these fun weekends has reminded me why I can’t wait to move into central London! I not only love eating my friends food; Oreo truffles with Cait and Lucy and Brioche burgers with Mariell and Jostein (don’t mind if I do), but I love having catch-upy, makey, bakey, shiny weekends with the people I don’t get to see enough of! So here’s to more in 2014!
