I love fireplaces. I wish I never have to live in a house without one!

Have any of you had the chance to go ice skating this year? :-)

1. Made this necklace when I was 10, now it only fits as a bracelet.
2. Calendar. I love how it has holidays from different countries, religions etc. - always a reason to party!
3. Got this wee cat from my godmother after Cleo died.
4. Mama's old shirt.
5. Les Miserables.
6. Some jewellery; first one's a gift from my sister, second from a friend, third a souvenir from Tallinn.
7. Still the old shirt of mama's.

I'm supposed to be busy with maths just now but I have zero motivation. I've got a huuuge pile of maths notes from three years. Hopefully, I'll get myself to start revising before the exam. I even did a revision timetable, but well... I've already skived two days, haha. Really need to get a grip. Maybe tomorrow.

3oz plain flour
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
3oz demerara sugar
3oz porridge oats
1 tablespoon rum
1 tablespoon golden syrup
Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, sugar and oats.
Melt the butter with the syrup and rum, pour into the flour mixture.
Shape into balls, bake in 160C for 25min.
This is how I spent the other night. The recipe is from "The Cookery Year", it's a great book! Only after finishing I realized that 'shape into balls' doesn't mean actual balls, but circles. Anyway, the shape doesn't affect the taste! And as the recipe included rum, thought I'd have some rum&coke as well, even though we never have ice.. And to stay in the theme, I watched "The Rum Diary".
Hope you all had an amazing weekend♥!

Dress - New look
Blazer & Turban - Grandma's old
Nomination bracelet & Slippers - Gifts
I went looking for fabric for my graduation dress with mama today. And it looks like they'll have a fabric just the colour of my shoes coming next week, so I'll be visiting the fabric shop again then:) I'm wearing something I've got from my grandma almost every day, I've got so many old cardis, blazers and scarfs of hers. The turban is a saviour on days when you can't be bothered to do anything with your hair! Also mama bought us some belated Valentine's Day gifts. Tulips and heart-shaped doughnuts. Arnolds doughnuts are the best, I could eat them every day! (Actually, can one say they're doughnuts if there's no hole in the middle..?)
