Many thanks to Jimmie Chew for tagging me with my first ever blog award!

I’m a little bit new to this so here goes…

Seven things about me

  1. My favourite foods in the world are pizza, cinnamon buns and muesli with blueberries. Weird huh. I love cinnamon buns but never make them in summer – they are truly a winter comfort food. Needless to say, I’ll post the recipe on here in the next couple of months!
  2. I love cats and dogs, especially all cats and all dogs. Plus anything else cute too.
  3. I have a bow problem. Bow shoes, bow headbands, bow tops, bow necklaces, bow EVERYTHING.
  4. Brightly coloured sprinkles and learning new cake techniques excite me. When I got my Wilton 1M tip and piped cupcake frosting that actually looked like amazing proper cupcakes for the first time, I jumped up and down with happy.
  5. I live in a victorian house and love period features and learning about the history of where I live. I would love to live in a classic new england style house with a porch and white clapboard too – I blame the film practical magic, which I continue to love to this day.
  6. My favourite films are Sleepless in Seattle, Heathers, and Hocus Pocus. Growing up I was also completely obsessed with Famous Five and Sweet Valley High books, which are a continuing source of mirth even today.
  7. My favouritest time of the year is Christmas, followed by Halloween/autumn, followed by Spring, followed by Summer. Some of those are holidays and some are seasons, I know!
