An Anniversary


James and I, looking like a pair of moomins

Had a busy couple of weeks so just trying to get my life organised - while I do that here is a recent update, I celebrated being with my fella, James, for six years.
We met at university and were friends for more than a year before we got together. We've been through a lot together, including spending a year living 200 miles apart. We've now lived together for four years and are house hunting to buy our first home.

We had a couple of days in the Lake District to chill out. Because our anniversary and Valentines fell really close together we just got each other a couple of presents for valentines and went out for a meal for our anniversary. James bought me...


This very cool wonder woman T-shirt and cute little hearts shopper bag! I also got some flowers and choccies. Happy girl!

While we were in the Lakes  I visited Lakeland (the plastics/kitchen place) and oh-my-God, kitchen heaven! A world of things I never knew I needed until I saw them. Picked up some new piping nozzles and bags. I also bought a giant cupcake mould from Hobbycraft, who I never realised did so much cake making stuff.

I really wanted to bake an anniversary cake for James, but I had some serious problems, the 
top half of the cake would not play ball. I did two attempts at the top half before I ran out of ingredients, so we ended up with a piped buttercream top...slightly sickly, but edible.

The finished product, slightly eaten...

Normal service will be resumed shortly.
