- today is my ma’s birthday! yay! i’m spending the day baking the birthday cake she’s requested ( lime cake with cream cheese frosting), and have managed to get lime syrup everywhere. everything in our house, including the dog, is covered in a film of stickiness. still, i’m hoping it’ll be worth it! i just tasted a spoonful (or ten) of leftover syrup, and it was mighty delicious! as well as cake, we’ll be having dinner of roast duck legs with a blackberry and balsamic sauce, served with roast potatoes, and sauteed spinach. yum!
- whilst my cake was baking this afternoon, i watched nativity. yup, it’s a christmas film. and it was 100% awesome.
- homeland update: jason and i are halfway through the second season. it’s epic, and amazing, and i don’t want it to end. can anyone recommend a good tv series to fill the void when we’re finished watching this season of homeland? we tried madmen the other day, and got about half an hour into the first episode before getting bored and switching off! is it worth persevering with? :)
today: i’ve been listening to- lana del ray off to the races. watching- last night’s episode of miranda. eating- yesterday’s mushroom risotto!
how has your tuesday been so far, my lovely readers? :)
