Recently I've been... (moving home edition!)

Painting, we painted all day for a whole week and then most evenings for two weeks and we're still one room away from finishing the upstairs! However, it really is worth the effort as the new house already feels more like our own. I can't wait to reveal pictures!


Baking duh na na-na-na-na.... BATMAN for the boyfriend's birthday last week. It was the first time using our new oven, so think I could have done slightly better but am pleased with how the bat symbol turned out. The cake disappeared in just over a day though, so it can't have tasted that bad.


Reading (because our TV doesn't work in the new house yet, dodgy aerial) And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini, a really beautiful book based on the story of a brother and sister separated as children. I've read her A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kite Runner too, both great reads.


Buying cute tinsel from ikea - because it just wouldn't be Christmas without gold foxes. Plus it's the only Christmas decoration we have up at the moment!
