I really thought that something had gone wrong with my week counting but I’ve just looked at the calendar and it’s worked out! A definite proof that miracles happen 🙂 They put the Christmas tree up in Trafalgar Square on Monday and although it wasn’t lit it still looked cool – and arrived from Norway… Read More What I did this week, Y1W48: A cold snap
Tuesday was a very exciting day as I had my driving test and I passed! No idea how I did it, the examiner was in a very lenient mood I think. At least I didn’t forget to put the hand break on and roll backwards into the examiners car like my grandmother or forget the… Read More What I did this week, Y1W47: I passed my driving test!
I didn’t have a terribly exciting time for either of these weeks so I thought I would squash them into one in the hope that I can find enough things to talk about. First, this photo of a Beech tree which I took for my screen saver. I always have a seasonal photo behind my… Read More What I did this week, Y1W45&46: The last of the autumn colours
I didn’t seem to take many photos this week. It has got a lot colder since November’s arrived, although it hasn’t frozen enough yet to kill off the remaining dahlias and sweet peas. It was my sister’s birthday on Thursday but we celebrated on Saturday on the usual style of presents and cake.I made fondant… Read More What I did this week, Y1W44: One year of blogging!
My sister gave my brother an art lesson on Tuesday which resulted in these two pictures on the fridge. The first one is my sister’s which contains an unintentional portrait of me. Apparently the whole family is in my brothers picture but we are just behind a hill. On Wednesday my brother and I went… Read More What I did this week, Y1W43: One day in Bath
I did all day babysits on Monday and Tuesday this week which mainly involved cake. Monday’s cake was a Nigella Halloween number. The actual cake came out like a sort of thick pancake and I made the icing wrong so it hadn’t even set by the next day but the seven-year-old boy I was looking… Read More What I did this week: Y1W42: A lot of cake
I’ve got to that point of the week and that point of my horrible cold where I can’t remember anything that happened last week except by looking at my sparse collection of photos. My educated guess is that in-between looking at ’16 photos only siblings will understand’ on Snapchat and stalking Taylor Swift on Instagram… Read More What I did this week, Y1W41: Portrait gallery and La Fille Mal Gardée
I made dampfnudels on Monday – those dumpling/bun things from bake off. They turned out really well considering the disasters that occurred on bake off and how I am incapable of following a recipe without altering it. I just always think I could make it better! Either that or I don’t have the right ingredients.… Read More What I did this week, Y1W40: Bake off cooking and a lizard in the house
I think I’ve failed slightly at taking photos this week. I went to loads of cool places and didn’t take any photos because I was a) far too busy catching up with friends or b) nervous about auditions so not thinking about taking photos. I did take this one of dahlias in our garden which is… Read More What I did this week, Y1W39: Museum of Childhood
The first thing that happened to me this week was that I had Still Falling For You by Ellie Goulding going around my head for days after going to see Bridget Jones’s Baby on Sunday night. The film was so good though and Ed Sheeran was a lot better than I thought he would be.… Read More What I did this week, Y1W38: So many apples
