But now I'm a grown up it's back to work on Monday, along with 5.20am wake up calls. NOOOO.
Back to the point of this post...I have a little kitchenware 'haul' to share. I have a penchant for quirky/cute kitchen items (even though my bf doesn't, being a lover of order and all things matchy) and am on a little mission to fill my (oops, our) kitchen with them. Some of these things I got for Christmas, some I purchased for an insanely low price at Ikea.
The cake tins in all their glory. I think they were on sale because they are Christmas leftovers, but they remind me more of gingerbread, in general, despite the trees. Even looking at that gingerbready colour makes me want gingerbread. I don't even like the stuff that much, apart from, maybe, the Grasmere Gingerbread Shop gingerbread, the recipe for which, apparently, hasn't changed since the shop came into existence in Victorian times.When I was at uni (what is it with me and uni nostalgia today?!) I was a member of a hillwalking club, and on our trips to the Lake District we used to go out of our way to buy this delicious crumbly goodness.
I digress....take a look at my marshmallow salad spoons:
I love how saintly I'd feel plunging these into a healthy salad. Saintly or wrong...can't quite decide which yet.
A close up of my little bowls from Ikea. I thought these were on sale, but they weren't, so I ended up paying double what I thought I would be (they were only £4, but still, my mind was in bargain mode). I love using the little bowls for yoghurt/nuts/honey/porridge/cake combos/other goodness.
So that's it for my little kitchenware haul. I'll definitely be making a cake in the next day or two, possibly a date and walnut loaf...watch this space.
Right, back to the grind. Hope you're all having a good Friday.
