Today is going to be a good day; firstly I shall be making Peppermint Bark which I found on the fabulous Cowbiscuits blog, some Dark Chocolate Fudge and some Caramelised Red Onion Chutney. These are going to be Christmas presents for everyone this year, a slightly random mix of goodies but they are all things that are easy to make and will taste amazing. I'll post pictures of the results tomorrow.
Secondly I have my first date with The Architect tonight, I am again breaking one of my dating rules and agreeing to have dinner with him at an Italian place near Portobello Road, he's asked me to meet him at 6pm which seems a little early for dinner but hey ho. I do like that he intially suggested Thai and when I said it wasn't really a favourite he asked if I'd prefer Italian. Hopefully I won't have a dating disaster story to post tomorrow! UPDATE: I woke up this morning to find a text from The Architect saying he'd "woken up with the flu and didn't want to be sick on our first date so could we reschedule for the new year?" boo.
No date outfit today so I've worn this instead (the dress, tights and socks are all navy)....
Jumper: Miss Selfridge
Tights: Dorothy Perkins
Socks: American Apparel
Earrings: Swished from V
Necklace: My Mums
The snow has finally decided to settle in central London...
.....Only Boy Flatmate and I went out to the garden to play in the snow for a bit, we threw snowballs and made a mini snowman....
....he looks a little more like a birdman than a snowman! Here is the house this years Apprentice candidates lived in, everything looks so pretty in the snow...
.......the garden committee have put up a Christmas tree with lights and everything too....
I'm really looking forward to our flats Christmas dinner tomorrow, we are having roastie lamb which is my favourite ever and I'm making all the trimmings too. I think L said we could have some of her birthday cupcake....
.....that R bought her for dessert and we have lots of crackers to go around. L and I are then off out to Whisky Mist for a night of dancing and a little drinking! Should be a fab Sunday.
Hope you are having a fab weekend?
Lots of Love
