Hello! And welcome to my new home!

This is what I’ve been up to in my absence. As well as finishing off the essay and submitting it (but only to have another awaiting). This also arrived:

Yup, my poor computer suffered manslaughter at the hand of red wine. Sad times. But this new one is great; almost worth the hole it’s left in our bank account!

It was my first week of my community nursing placement last week/this week just gone. The nursing team are lovely and I’ve met some wonderful people who I will be helping in the community. It’s strange entering people’s homes to provide nursing care but it’s a privilege at the same time.

My daily eats have been quite boring this week but I did find time to bake Fauxstess Cupcakes from Vegan With A Vengeance.

They are amazing! I’m sure they taste as good as what I imagine the gluten versions tasting. Good job, Isa! To make them gluten-free just use 100g of any gluten-free flour blend in place of the 115g of all-purpose/plain flour. As you can see, I didn’t decorate them as fully as Isa recommends but the chocolate ganache icing was more than sufficient.

Tom and I enjoyed the beautiful sunshine this afternoon by going for a relaxing stroll along the beach at Weston-Super-Mare. It’s a bit of a building site at the moment, as the peer is being rebuilt, but it was nice to be by the sea and experience the sunshine with loads of other people, their families, and their dogs. Ah, the Brits. As soon as there’s a sign of sunshine we all come out from hibernation!

Hope spring is finally showing it’s face wherever you are in the world. x

    Cody and I have been daydreaming about moving to Cornwall lately. He’s in the process of getting his British passport (his mom is English) so who knows, maybe we will be moving to your part of the world soon!


  5. Thanks Tasha 🙂

    Awesome, come to the UK! Cornwall’s beautiful. We don’t have the weather over here though. But you’ve lived in the UK before haven’t you so you know what to expect x
