O Christmas Tree

I’ve never had my own real Christmas tree before. I’ve only helped out with the tree at my parents’ house (my mum really enjoys decorating it) and then last year we just had a tiny, tiny one. This year my flatmate brought home a real tree, so we went all out in decorating it. It warms my heart to come home and see it! Simple pleasures. I hope everyone had a good Christmas!

Oh the weather outside is frightful…

My friend Anna and I went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park for work this week. We took a couple of disposable cameras with us (I didn’t fancy subjecting my SLR lens to the bitter cold) and the combination of winter greyness and cheap camera produced some rather cute, retro results. Winter Wonderland is a lot of fun, despite the cold, and the smell of mulled wine and German confectionary definitely put us in the festive mood.

Merry Christmas everyone!



Maybe I have a problem…

I’m on something of a baking rampage recently. This time it was shortbread biscuits. I’ve never made biscuits before but these turned out alright! I think another batch of these is in order in the run up to Christmas.



‘Tis the season to bake cakes

My best friend gave me Nigella’s How To Be A Domestic Goddess book as an early Christmas present, so this week I decided to road test her carrot cupcake recipe. Oh my, they were good.

It has taken me a while to get into the festive spirit this year, but I think I’ve finally got there. Much cooking, baking and seasonal frivolity on the way!
