Holiday Post #3: White Christmas Slice

With Christmas only one week away, I am sure you are seeing many of the following categories of people:

  1. People with different accents – visitors, family, friends, globally congregating to spend the festival with their loved ones
  2. Street Santas – Be they for charity or hired for photos, Santas are everything (though the Scottish accent is not always in place :P)
  3. The Runners – People literally marathon-ing it through the shops, trying to find last minute presents for people they forgot or for those who have just gotten off work for the holidays
  4. Christmas Carollers – Though not so common in Australia, I am sure other places are seeing a flurry of warmly dressed, candle holding bunch singing Silent Night, acapella style 🙂

Can you not feel the Christmas spirit in the air? 🙂 – And with only a week to go, next post (if my jet lag has not stopped me from baking) will mean one very Christmassy recipe!

Where am I right now (or where will I be when this post is published?) – I am dancing in grass skirts, flowers in my hair and a big piece of pineapple in my mouth – yep, through my super subtle clues you guessed it – Hawaii! 🙂

And it is super simple too!

HALLOWEEN!

We’re all friends. I mean look at us, hanging around, doing whatever, watching the ridiculously scary new Pretty Little Liars episodes on a usual Saturday night.

All good fun, no problems, lots of food and a great night.

That is how hanging out with friends usually is, honestly, don’t get me wrong. But on Halloween, things start to happen. It usually starts with ‘something evil lurking in the dark’, and then when you turn around, ‘you see a sigh that almost stops your heart’

My Simply Nutella Saturday

Don’t tell me you have never done it before. Don’t go pushing your glasses up your nose and flicking an imaginary speck off your business suit. You are not making eye contact, just staring at your screen typing away, mouth set in a grim line while I accuse you. Don’t lie to me. I don’t know why you are lying to me. When everyone has done it before.

You look up at me sharply when I say that. You subtly look both directions before giving me a slight nod to continue. And I do.

Stain Glass Window Cookies And A Final Goodbye

As Christmas approaches, formal approaches and basically, everything points towards the end of another school year. While this is truly fantastic as by going into Year 11, I am finally given the opportunity to study what I want, rather than pointless topography maps in geography, this is also rather sad – my food tech classes finally come to an end, the monotony of study without a decent break in the middle of the week begins and my food blogging must be controlled (but definitely done :))

1I feel a sense of loss at this change – it was expected so I don’t understand why it seems to hit so hard that it is over – I can only suppose it is because I shall never be taught by Ms D again, never bake or cook with friends in that atmosphere and never feel the pride in having a connoisseur smile and say the food you made tastes good – I will miss it all.
