My week in pictures

1. Toffee apples - I love this time of year, when toffee apples are on sale and everything becomes warm, crisp and autumnal
2. The best roast dinner I've ever made (if I do say so myself!)
3. We got out pumpkins this weekend, all ready for carving Tuesday night - if anyone has any good pumpkin recipes, throw them this way
4. What a lovely gift to receive. To cut a long story short, someone reversed into my sister-in-law's car and so, by means of apology, bought round a handmade chocolate fudge cake... Such a shame the sis is travelling in Thailand at the moment... :P
5. Even the cats are getting cosy! They're using their igloo at last (I don't know if that the technical term but it's what we call it) we've only been waiting YEARS for one if them to use it

My Week in Pictures

1. So I finally did it - I graduated! After 3 long years I finally got to wear the crazy gown and collect my certificate. The buildings were so amazing!
2. Salted caramel hot chocolate. This is my current obsession! This one was from Starbucks but I'm experimenting with my own recipe. Stay tuned for THAT post!
3. At work it's customary to bring in cakes on your birthday, but get this, it was a TRIPLE birthday. Yep, 3 of us at work all celebrating birthdays. Rather than just have the one day, we spread out 3 different cakes over a week. This was day 1-Krispy Kreme donuts. (I bought in homemade brownies for mine!)
4. My new watch. I used to wear a silver Calvin Klein watch and I loved it but it was just so impractical. The watch face was so small and there were no numbers. It was on telling the time at 12, 3, 6 or 9 o'clock, but anything in between was a guess. This one was a bargain from eBay (originally from Next). I love it!
5. This was my birthday cake. My boyfriends birthday was in September and my dads was at the beginning of October so wed had enough chocolate cake, I decided on Madeira for a change. The owl was very appropriate as I graduated 3 days later and now work in a school.

Happy Saturday people! :)

Things I'm loving right now

It's been a super long time since I last posted a blog but I've been so busy! I'm finally a working girl, yey!
Another plus is that I am now the proud owner of an iPhone 4S and blogger app, which (hopefully) means you'll be hearing a lot more from me!!

So to kickstart this month, I thought I'd share with you a few of the things I am LOVING right now :)

Please note, I do not own these images.
