The weeks in brief: 14 October – 17 November


Oh wow hi. It’s been a month since I last did one of these posts.


While I prefer to focus on positive things, honestly the last month has been a bit shit. More than a bit, really. But it’s okay, because life goes on and, even when it’s awful, things get better.

Long cat

Things that make life better: long cats.

Catspam snuggles

Even better: cat snuggles. Or cats who snuggle EACH OTHER. Cutest.


Also: danishes.


And amazing croissants from Lune Croissanterie. Thanks to Thanh for coordinating a large croissant order last weekend. So good.


Pho also cures a lot.

Toasted sandwich

So do toasted sandwiches and pickles. Best lunch.

Watercress pesto

Goat with chimichurri

Banana chiffon cake

Cooking and baking is good too. Not that I’ve been doing a lot of that in the past two weeks because mum is here. 🙂 These recipes will be blogged shortly.


Though I did bake alfajores yesterday and they were AMAZING. Make them make them make them.

Thank you

That’s all. Thank you.
