Blogmas Day 31 – Happy New Year!

Good evening friends, and a very Happy New Year to all of you!

This year we are spending New Yesrs eve at home, watching Lord of the Rings (the extended additions), with a delicious 3 course home cooked meal, by my love, and with a big bottle of bubbly.

My last couple of posts have been very late as I’ve been extremly overwhelmed and feeling low.

Rememeber to look after yourselves, set and smash those goals, and be thankful for every day.

I hope however you’re entering 2020, I wish you all health, happiness and positive thoughts!

Bake off, Halloween Special

A very good evening and warm welcome to my Halloween Post!

This year we decided to celebrate Halloween a little differently. In past years we’d have a Halloween party, fancy dress (of course), and a night out drinking.

This year was slightly more relaxed but no doubt just as entertaining.

We also watched the brilliant, BettleJuice at the cinema for a one off screening. My friend told about about this a few weeks ago and I booked the tickets there and then. You can’t beat a classic. We also dressed up at home, whilst drinking heaverly and watching Halloween films… What more could you want?

So, this evening… We mixed it up a bit.

The final of The Great British Bake off aired last night, so I decided that Halloween night, we would have a get together and watch in suspense on channel 4 catch up.

I asked each guest to bring their home baked goods. The delicious dishes included, shortbread, Welsh cakes, 2 varieties of sausage rolls, sweet potato pie and rice crispy cakes. It was quite the fest!

And yes… I gave a handshake

I went a little rogue with the recipe as couldn’t find one I liked so made it my own. I made sweet and sticky orange buns for the occasion. And not to toot my own horn, but they were bloody tasty!

Countless cups of tea and great company made my Halloween perfect.

How was your Halloween and do you have any traditions?
