Sorry I’ve been so quiet of late, life has been rather trying. I feel so tired all the time and I’ve been organising a study day which we had last Saturday (thankfully went successfully)
Still a bit in shock of how well my auction items went for Richard Armitage birthday auctions organised by Guylty . Richard Armitage himself was very gracious about the results of the auction and made a big difference with his donation to match how much his Guy jacket sold for.
Last week I received a lovely unexpected thank you from Guylty in the shape of the 1 inch square RAPS shrine as thank you for helping with the auction! It’s so adorably cute and makes me smile heartily.
In other news I have been out twice to a restaurant in September. Both times were very safe and tasty. First was Japanese restaurant Bento Boss in central Bristol , one of my fave places and delicious as usual
Second was The Florist also in Bristol, the food was tasty but not super amazing but I think the place is more of a cocktail bar
I’ve also been trying to cook more, though not successfully during the week because i come home shattered. One recipe that I’ll share here is by Yotam Ottolenghi , who is a Israeli-born British chef, restaurateur and food writer. One of my friends is a huge fan and she shared this recipe a few times and i realised I basically had all the ingredients so decided to give it a try. It’s one of those recipes that doesn’t have too many ingredients but it does take a while to prepare because everything is cut very finely. But once everything has been chopped and measured, the actual cooking is very simple. And it was a super delicious recipe
I also picked up his Plenty cook book yesterday in a charity shop for £8. So here’s to more experiments!
In other news, I finally got around to sewing myself some scrub hats for work using a fairly simple pattern from Dhuruta Davies
i bought this cute cat fabric from ebay a while back and the final hats have gone down well with my work mates (no I won’t make you any! they took too long! lol)
So today I need to rewatch the recording of my regional group AGM and write the minutes! The weather is grey and very wet.
I also have a little craft project on the go, but no reveals until finished and in the hands of the recipient 😊
Have a good weekend x
