Made me smile: 25th March

Hi All!
Last week went so fast but lots of good things were within it and now that I have at least some work I am able to enjoy things a bit more without the over arching guilt that I have to earn some money! So here are some of the things that made me smile this week:

Lunch time salad dates with the other half made my days at home much less lonely. Additionally the mexican chicken salad from Habitual Fix is divine and I want to buy it in bulk so I can eat it all week long.

Found this somewhere and liked it. Alice in wonderland is a strange but rather wonderful story and the Cheshire Cat has to be my favorite part.

Mid week baking sessions, this time chocolate chip cookies to use up some spare chocolate chips that somehow had avoided being eaten. Miracles can happen. These were super simple and my kind of scrummy cookie, I’ll try and remember to share the recipe (I say this far more often that I actually follow through don’t I? Sorry!)

Excuse the crass language (what more can you expect when referring to Hell’s Kitchen?) but this made me chuckle. Edd and I used to watch ever series of HK and now I can barely sit through one episode haha. Not sure why.

On Sunday many games of Monopoly deal were played with my brothers and Edd. I love this game and enjoy it despite losing over and over. Somehow Mr 5 beat us all every time….Surely I should be able to occasionally beat a 5 year old?

Also on Sunday was another baking session, however I did hardly anything and got my two slaves brothers to do the work! We made afghan biscuits and they turned out pretty delicious. If you have never heard of what I believe is a bit of a New Zealand delicacy (lol) I will be sharing the recipe (if I ever get around to it…just joking, this one I plan to do this week) for these little crunchy chocolate biscuits plus icing with you all!

Sorry, still obsessed with unlikely animal friendships.
Speaking of which this link (http://on.natgeo.com/11phMQg) is for an ADORABLE video about a badger and a fox who are like, best friends. So cute! Reminds me of fox and the hound without the douchey farmer!

Other things that made me smile this week included seeing old friends who you haven’t caught up with in years, playing with nail polish, kitty cuddles at nightime and in the mornings, good books, getting all your clothes washed, delicious and healthy-ish Japanese food and weather that means I’m ready to start drinking hot pots of herbal tea yay!

This week I also got a bit more involved on Tumblr and had lots of fun (although the link below was more strange than fun…). If you have a Tumblr please leave it in the comments for me to come follow you (not creepy at all ..)

So this was weird….http://pokemonxniccage.tumblr.com/…just in case you wanted to see Nicholas Cage’s face on a bunch of pokemon. Pidgey is my favorite/incredibly creepy

Speaking of Pokemon….(less weird and more cute!)
