In This Week



Raspberry Rudolph mulled cider // went to see The Butler // happy me // press pass // Chistmas presents half sorted // peaches and cream cupcakes

I've had a fairly busy week as I've been making a larger effort to be more of an 'initiator' as opposed to someone who waits for other people to make plans (as I have been for most of my life). On Wednesday night I grabbed two pals and headed to the St Enoch Christmas Fair to drink some mulled cider (and what good mulled cider it was) and gorge on some food. I bought the cheese to end all cheese: Snowdonia's Red Devil cheese with pepper and chili crushed through it. And also had far too much fun at the pick and mix stall purchasing random flavours of fudge. Afterwards, we made use of an Orange Wednesday code and headed along to see The Butler, which was drop-dead amazing. It's set during the civil rights movements in the USA and even though I wouldn't call myself much of a history buff it was easy to follow and I was laughing at the choice of actors to play presidents (Severus Snap makes an appearance as Raegan, sorry but you'll never be Alan Rickman to me). 

Friday I took the day off work to head along to the Country Living Christmas Fair with Hayley for some snooping around with press badges. I got some Christmas shopping out the way from Arran Aromatics and Gillian Kyle but had to restrain myself from buying anything for myself (though I discovered several new smaller brands that I'll be making cheeky purchases from once the season of giving is out the way). Afterwards we went for a bit of Christmas shopping and stopped by Bar Soba for some amazzzingggg grub (full post soon but it was seriously some of the best grub this side of Scotland). Yesterday I slowed down, went for a morning run but came back exhausted and stayed in bed watching Sabrina all day (I'm now onto Season 3) and the odd Buffy/Angel episode (I've just started the point where the two shows overlap). And today I did the exciting duties of food shopping and laundry which I rewarded myself with by making peaches and cream cupcakes (note: oat cream doesn't thicken the same way cows cream does). 

And I'll stop speaking, got to get some more errands done before work tomorrow. 

Lots of mulled cider love!
