This past week there's been torrential rain, there's been Chicago, there's been Black Treacle ice cream from Northern Bloc on Black Friday (as well as some purchases...), there's been food markets like Orange Pip in Middlesbrough which I'll post about soon, and there's been CHRISTMAS SONG after Christmas song... which I'm not actually that adverse to. (I love Christmas songs. And films for that matter.) Seriously though, I've seen the Coca Cola truck, drank mulled wine and Christmas pudding ground coffee, seen many a Christmas tree, so yes- I think it's safe to say it's beginning to look a lot like...
Watch// Werner Herzog's Lo and Behold: Reveries of The Connected World (those football playing robots, though!)
Drink// This week I went along to The Botanist to sample their new Winter Warmer range. I'll post more about this soon, as I'm keen to try out their Mulled Cider recipe... But the Mulled Wine was an absolute treat, and it was fun to learn how to make the other cocktails, one featuring plum and Justin Timberlake's own tequila.
Wishlist// With my birthday (next weekend) and Christmas approaching, I've been thinking a lot about what I'd like. Forest Gin, which is made from foraged fruits, would be oh so lovely if it came in a smaller bottle for a slightly smaller pricetag. And also, I'd love a trip away in a log cabin!
