Let the Christmas parties begin...

On Saturday night we had our work's Christmas Party/ Farewell Party. So I spent most of the week getting my head around feeding  30 people or the midst of our house/building site.

I tried out a new recipe - Mango, Raspberry Trifle. Easy to throw together, especially if you've made the custard before. Recipe is here

The Farewell bit was for one of our staff, who's a bit of a grown-up kid. He is Lego mad, so I made him this cake...

Bit lumpy bumpy but it did the job!

Hope you have a good week!

Just a random picture of our cat, Willow. I read recently that black cats are the last to get adopted at shelters/the pound and the theory is it's because they don't photograph well for our Instragram/Facebook filled lives. How sad is that? 

Our girl Willow came from the pound, and I think she appreciates her life now as she is happy to be carried everywhere, dressed up, made to sit in cubby houses. I appreciate her as she's the least demanding member of the family!

Sorry I've been missing in action. It has been very hectic around here, with lots of "extra" stuff to get done. Saw this GIF and thought it pretty much sums up my life at the moment! 

Hope you're having a good week!
