Watching The Apprentice, Cuckoo, and a lovely afternoon episode of Come Dine With Me. I also watched a couple of episode of Zumbo’s Just Desserts on Netflix which is a pretty fun show to fill the GBBO void!
Listening to I finally started listening to Christmas tunes; namely Pentatonix. I also listened to Philip Pullman giving a talk at St. George’s Hall in Liverpool. It was so lovely to hear his voice in real life because I have listened to the audiobooks of His Dark Materials. It felt so warm and cozy to be in a room full of people listening to him. He was also very insightful about the books and his writing process.
Reading I started reading Autumn by Ali Smith. I was super keen to read this so I’m a little bit disappointed that I’ve found it difficult to get into so far. I’ll stick with it though.
Writing My first novel and several blog posts about cheese for one of my freelance clients.
Eating Delicious breakfasts at both Leaf and East Avenue Bakehouse, a fun dinner at Maray and incredible Indian food at Mowgli. I’m gearing up to eat some Christmassy food soon!
Drinking Probably a few too many cocktails at Mowgli, Maray and Berry and Rye. A particularly good Aperol Spritz at The Quarter. A London Fog at Leaf which was just brilliant, and their Turkish Apple Tea, which is a firm favourite of mine. Mulled wine at Kazimier Gardens.
Talking about New jobs, style, dating, Disney lovers, Christmas, our new house, TV options, gin, cryptocurrencies, libraries, and how to plan well.
