Bits and bobs

I haven't updated this ol' blog in a while so here's what I've been up to lately..

- Dressed up as a crow for 'Monsters & Mischief' - a Halloween evening with a British folk theme held at Nottingham Contemporary
- Made a scrummy autumnal apple & plum crumble
- Helped Tom to film his new band video (involving a green screen and dancing nuns... this should be good!)
- Had a flying visit to the Big Smoke last week, and stumbled upon the bookshop from Black Books (only five minutes' walk from St Pancras, who would've thunk it?) I'll post more bits from my London trip soon.
- Got pretty addicted to Serial podcast (anyone else been listening to it? What do you make of the case so far?)
- Started watching The Gilmore Girls. I have never really given it a proper go so I've started it from the first episode... 
- In house news... (or lack thereof) we were told the chain on our house purchase was complete last month.. but the day after it fell through again so we are back to waiting for our vendors to find a new house. Such. A. Long. Process. Looks like we'll be spending this Christmas in the Convent after all. (Which isn't really that bad - but frustrating all the same)
- And finally.. Tom has found a new job in The National Space Centre! He'll be working as a Graphic Designer there which is pretty flippin' cool, am very proud of him indeed.


  1. Oh, wow! What an incredible job! Wish him luck from me ("some girl on the internet says...").

  2. I'm sorry to hear about all the house stress - waiting for it all to fall into place is so frustrating. I hope it all comes together soon. We are really enjoying Serial and can't wait for the next one this week. That's great news about Tom's new job - yay!

  3. Oh bad news about the house :( It must be so frustrating having to wait. But yay for Tom! I did wonder if he'd got the job recently, what great news. It seems like a cool place to work.
