So, October has gone by and again I have rather slack at posting. It's been a lovely month though. For one, our niece Evie had her very first birthday. The perfect excuse to make some 'beary' cakes. J was actually in charge of decoration to be honest - he has a special skill of being able to make the sweetest little faces every time.

Of course, October also saw the 12 week scan of our little bubba. It totally blew our minds and it meant we could finally tell people too!! Speaking of buns in ovens, we've enjoyed a bit of baking again since being back at my parent's house. The oven in our old flat used to get a BIG lot of abuse from me and I was seriously doubting my ability to make even the simplest of cakes. It was the most frustrating thing ever. Thank goodness it seems to have been the oven to blame after all as things have been back on track. We had our old university friends over for dinner one Saturday night (how did we get so grown up?) and subjected them to a humungous serving of s'mores pie (ok, maybe not so mature). It was a massive gooey mess of brownie, biscuit and marshmallow that was impossible to serve with any degree of elegance. But who needs elegance with those ingredients? Sadly I didn't get a photo...

Mostly though, socialising has given way to weekends of working hard on our new project (sneak preview below). It needs a lot of time but working as a creative team with my Jonny has been loads of fun and hopefully it will all come together before too long. We're trying to get as much done before the new house takes priority. Eek!

That takes us to November... Yesterday in fact, when we exchanged contracts on our new property. Hooray!! In two and a half weeks, we'll have the keys and be on our way to making a proper little nest :)
