Things to do and see in 2016

Selfishly this is really a list for me. But really this whole blog is for me – no offence meant, but if I were writing it for reader numbers I wouldn’t still be going : )

  • Bodiam Castle (ideally in the sunshine please Jack)
  • Wakehurst
  • Walberswick and Southwold – My grandparents lived in Walberswick when I was little, and I would love to go back for a long weekend.
  • 65 Degrees in Brighton is on our “to eat at” list. It has some brilliant reviews but is tiny and we never remember to book.
  • Majorca – cheating here – this is my summer holiday.Screen Shot 2016-03-02 at 8.31.05 am
  • Edinburgh
  • Venice – I am determined to visit with my sister this year, even if it will be a little delayed for her March birthday…

    Venice: It was pretty amazing on our honeymoon, and I’d love to go again!
  • Sh*t-faced Shakespeare – looks hilarious

What’s on your to-do list this year? And do you have any recommendations for me?

November In Pictures

Jack and I went to London for a little day trip at the beginning of November – we walked like twenty miles that day!

We went to the quietest Bonfire Night at Lindfield I think I have ever known. The weather earlier on it in evening was revolting, soak-you-to-the-skin type rain.

I visited my lovely friend Joey in London, and he took me for my first ever trip to a Westfield shopping centre. Those designer brand shops are intense. I think I’ll stick with H&M.

Speaking H&M – do you like my new dress. I love love love it. Love me some stripes.

I have been lovely my colouring book, The Secret Garden. Just need to find my pencil sharpener…

Yes, I did make a batch of mince pies in mid November. They weren’t bad, homemade filling and all, but I need to hunt down the recipe for my favourite pastry. The Mincemeat recipe I use is Delia Smith’s, but I use vegetable suet.

Have been living in my slippers. Love them – bought for myself from Accessorize about two years ago and have been well worn ever since.

Fran, Aisling (of Aisybee) and I went along to see the Brighton Christmas lights being switched on. I’ll be honest: I think I am too old to have enjoyed the musical entertainment, but I did enjoy going for a wander about after they had been switched on.

My family cam over for a sunday roast, as I hadn’t actually seen my brother and his girlfriend since the summer. One of my all time favourite veggies to have with a roast is slow cooked red cabbage. I go a little off recipe in terms of the measurements, but again I try to follow Delia’s recipe.

Did you have a good November?
