My favourite kind of cake – 21st October 2014

My favourite kind of cake is birthday cake! I didn’t manage to snap up any birthday cake yesterday so headed home to get some today. It’s not the cake itself that I’m so fond of, it’s the icing.  I just can’t get enough of the stuff. If I could I would eat just the icing all the time.

Candle cat 2.0 – 19th October 2014

Meet candle cat 2.0.  It’s pretty clever really. You put the tea light in the cats back and it heats up a wax tart in the hanging parachute.  We got some of the Halloween Ghostly treats to start off with. So far it’s been awesome.  The wax tarts seem to last forever and the smell is still going strong.  Also the cat is super cute. What more do you need?

Feline laziness – 18th October 2014

Winter is coming and the cats are slowly creeping their way into one big furry mass in order to keep warm. New boy George is slowly getting brave enough to join in but prefers to share a bed with the dogs and Bengie (our Yorkshire Terrier) is becoming more and more possessive of little George and now treats him like his puppy. Max and Spot tend to adopt the most adorable winter stances. Spot is my oldest cat and Max is one of his sons. The pair spend a lot of time together. 



Stand up to Cancer – 17th October 2014

Tonight was Channel 4’s stand up to cancer campaign.  This was a mixture of heartbreaking storys and comedy in a bid to raise money for cancer research.  Celebrity gogglebox was awesome (the full version was aired the following week) and the celebritys fitted in nicely with the regular goggleboxers. The last Leg was perhaps the finest moment of the show. Adam Hill’s rant managed to be a perfect comedic piece about cancer. It hit the nail on the head with how cancer affects everyone yet managed to be heartwarming and funny. Then Adam Hill got his kit off after the donation total soared. A good night, I think Chanel 4 managed to be funny whilst raising awareness for an important cause. 

New knitting needles – 16th October 2014

One of my 6mm knitting needles was snapped so I had to hunt out a new one. I really love the pony coloured needles that I won in the World Cup knitting challenge so I went in search of some 6mm. Although slightly different I did manage to get some similar ones and they’re absolutely fabulous.

Knitted penguin – 14th October 2014

For Tinker’s adoption day I decided to knit her the penguin from my Let’s knit magazine.  Stuffed with catnip and a squeaker I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Just hope she likes it!

Candle cat – 13th October 2014

I love a nice scented candle and what better way to accessories that then with a cute little cat to attach to the side. I picked up candle cat on my latest shopping trip. He was with the Halloween candles but I think that he looks cute with any candles.

Roker Park illuminations – 12th October 2014

This evening we went to see the Roker park illuminations.  They’re Alice in Wonderland themed and although we went to see them last year we thought they were so good we headed back to see them again. I love the lights, I think that light displays ate fabulous amd these, complete with a giant Cheshire cat are no exception.
