October in Pictures

Firstly, where did October go?! It flew past so quickly and I can't believe we are now in November. I thought I would share with you some photos of what i've been up to during the last month as it involved a visit to a cute little vintage village, a halloween party and some homemade biscuits. 

At the beginning of the month, me and my partner decided to spend a spur-of-the-moment afternoon visiting a gorgeous little village in Wiltshire with our dog, Ralph. It was like stepping back in time with a vintage bakery, small village church and local shops. We stopped for a delicious afternoon tea in a tiny tea shop and spent a few hours taking in the glorious scenery, which Ralph thoroughly enjoyed! The following week, I put my baking head on and decided to bake some butter biscuits as we had some friends to stay. Now i'm not the best cook in the world but I decided to try out a recipe from my new cookbook and whip up a batch of biscuits which thankfully, went down a treat! Finally, to round up the month nicely, we were invited to a halloween/bonfire party with friends. I decided to dig out my cat ears from the previous year, draw on a couple of whiskers and away we go. It was a great evening with lovely food, halloween cakes, pumpkins, fireworks and sparklers. 

After a great October, I'm really looking forward to what November will bring! My diary is looking very full with lots of fun things including birthday extravaganza's, christmas lights, more fireworks and a mad hatter's tea party...all of which I will be sure to share with you!

I would love for you to let me know what you've been up to during October?
