Well hello there folks. It would appear that I've had a good few visitors during my absence, which is really nice to come back to but it makes me feel that I should apologise for my sloppy housekeeping and lack of recent posts. I have some rubbish pictures on my phone of things I've cooked over the past couple of weeks, but the problem is I can't quite remember my recipes. Did I write them down? Hell no. Sloppy, I know.
It has been a busy few weeks though. Pretty much all focused on a still-as-yet-unsuccessful job hunt, working in the garden to prepare my vegetable patch (fingers crossed I will have a decent vegetable and herb garden come summer! ) and doing a few things for my birthday. The day itself was spent in Dublin with job interviews, then dinner with Gar and then we checked out Tbone Kelly's acoustic session over a couple of drinks in the Gypsy Rose.
|Out to dinner on our first night. A traditional Vietnamese pancake called banh xeo. Very very yummy. I must learn how to cook these!|
|Out for cocktails in the prohibition themed bar, the Nightjar in Shoreditch.|
Perhaps I'll use the theme again in a couple of years to have another go at it!
|Some of the sweet treats at my Tim Burton themed birthday party.|
|Some more of the tasty buns at my party.|
|Towards the end of the night, the queen of hearts, Alice and Mirana the white queen.|
Lastly the highlight of my day has been the arrival of the post. My commission from Tegan Coddington arrived! Woot! I've been a huge fan of her work for a few years now and I am so happy to now have one of her original pieces to call my own!
