Sunday Roundup

This week I have been:

Plotting: with M's friends to surprise him for his birthday! It has been so fun sneaking around being secretive and the result was just brilliant as he didn't suspect a thing! More about that in another post soon.

Listening to: Muse - The 2nd Law. What a fantastically underrated album.

Reading: about how to do advocacy without melting into a horrible mess


Drinking: flasks of tea. My Thermos keeps my tea hot hot hot from 6.45am all the way until 4pm and whilst I kind of understand how insulation works, I do still think "HOW?!" every time. 

Watching: Stacey Dooley's documentary about Cancun and the Great British Bake Off Final! I love Frances' creations so I was pleasantly surprised when she won. Her wedding cake was stunning compared to the others and the whole way through the series I was constantly impressed with how clever her ideas are. You can imagine how excited I was when she retweeted something I tweeted her as well!

Playing: chess with M because it's up there in our top 3 favourite pastimes. Oh and playing with the kitten of course (but that probably goes without saying).

What did you get up to this week?
Pin It Now!


  1. Sounds like you had a lovely week. I am glad you were as excited about the Bake Off Final as I was! Hope you were pleased with the result! xxx

  2. I'm such a Muse fan and the 2nd Law is a brilliant album indeed :) x

  3. Eating cakes sounds amazing! Cute post! I really enjoy your blog and would love to follow each other--please visit mine and I'll follow you back :)

  4. I was really happy that Frances won. She was streets ahead of the other two with the wedding cake challenge--I wouldn't have been happy with their efforts at my wedding, and Frances's would only be suitable if it was a rustic/outdoors wedding. Her blog is rather fabulous; I love seeing the drawings turned into cakes.
