Pinterest Party Planning Wins and Fails

I've been spending a lot of time recently on Pinterest - mainly because I've been party planning a cuban themed party and it seemed the obvious way to do it...

Some things worked a treat - the twix cuban cigars especially

Pin
Mine - Win!

Other things however did not quite...

Pin - which I actually had to track down the recipe for since originally it was 'pinned' as a spam post

1st attempt -Fail
Ok, that's not really fair, I was slightly flustered and didn't re read the instructions properly since re-pinning it, but then I remembered another pin and used the flip side of a muffin tray to bake little cups - and very yummy they were too...

2nd Attempt - Win!

What I did find handy using Pinterest for party planning was having a central point to be able to keep ideas and things in one place, in a more visual way then say Evernote of Google Docs.

Perfect Overnight Oats Methods

I've been trying to cut down on spending money in work (sorry lovely Squeezebox) so in an effort to break up the monotony of making cup'a'porridge every day - and also the fact that only Tesco's sell it - I've started down the pinterst-tastic overnight oats train - in mason jars because they turn out to be super cheap from home bargains

Overnight oats breakfast meal prep for the next few days and I've finally found a use for the jam funnel @lottierouxel brought me ages ago (I'm fairly rubbish at making Jam it turns out) #mealprep #vintagekitchen #masonjars A post shared by Nia Wearn (@wormella83) on Aug 12, 2018 at 8:23am PDT Which also means I can now prep 5 day of breakfasts in one short Sunday night meal prep blitz (I'm making layerd salads in bulk too - not together, that would be weird)

Anyway - I've got it down I think after a few weeks of experiments

Sad New - RIP the tasteless Christmas Tree

It is with sad news that we have to report the demise of our favorite festive decoration - the tasteless, weird fiber optic christmas tree with the strange baubles that made an odd grinding sound.


It hailed from our days in Liverpool, in the flat, and it was neither attractive nor calming, but we loved it so. It was love at first sight when we saw it the Renshaw's hardware and it took us ages of stalking to finally get one. It has illuminated many a window in the years since - broadcasting to everyone we have little taste when ti comes to Christmas decorations.
It probably lasted 10 years and I doubt anything like it's magnificence will ever be seen again in our home.
Good bye you wonderful decorative item

Writing Nook

Because everyone spends the first day of their holidays making a place to do all the work they haven't done yet right?
On the basis we arn't really going away again one of my plans is to actually tidy up and sort out all the bits we've neglected over the last 5 years - the spare room / library / study / games room / fairy den / laundry dump is in a much better place then it was but since my desktop died, my actual desk was starting to look a bit sad - and since I brought a laptop a little while ago I've mainly been using it downstairs, on my lap - which is nice, but not that useful for actual writing.
So task one - make a space for me to be able to write, in my study - tick!
