Sunday Bliss

Morning 

Mozart. Watching the Andrew Marr show during breakfast. Reading the papers. Happy that Ed won.




Afternoon

Kitchen fun with my treasures. The next couple of weekends are going to be pretty busy and we won't be together, so today we just had to have a bit of "quality bonding time" (as Clara likes to say).


Scones
These are some scones made by Ana using one of our old, tried and tested recipes. We had them for tea and they were scrumptious. The next time we feel like having scones, however, we'll just have to try this delicious sounding recipe in The Pink Wisk.


Sunday afternoon fun
Cookies made by Clara for her friends. She wants to have a cookie corner shop when she's grown up, even has a name for it already: Clara's Cookie Corner. 


Have to start practicing some Halloween cupcakes soon. Clara put this collage together for inspiration.

Evening

Settling down to watch the premier of Downron Abbey on ITV1. I'm a sucker for quality period dramas.






Here's an interesting clip about it from the Press Association.



Wondering what I would wear if I were going to the ball at Willow Manor. Carolina Herrera, Valentino, Dior, Armani? Haven't thought about evening dresses in years... 

Anyway, too bad I can't go, I just haven't enough time to prepare for it. Maybe next year.

Can't wait to see the pictures and read all about it, though! Such a fantastic concept!

Oh, yes, please do come! Actually, all you have to do to attend is leave a comment in the comment section on Thursday the 30th. If you like, you can post what you're wearing, etc., on your blog, but it's not necessary. Hope to see you there!

Claudia, I know you would look extremely elegant no matter what you would pick out. Maybe just pick a dress? But as willow says, hop around and visit.

Clara's cookies are impressive, and I love her alliteration. :)

I'll do my best :)

Sherlock Holmes is supposed to be a good dancer Claudia. Perfect Escort for you. While dancing he'll tell you that you had corn flakes for breakfast.
How did you know ?
Here, one corn flake is sticking on your nose.

That is not a corn flake Mr. Holmes, its my new nose ring.

Your dad was a foot ball player ?
oh how did you know Mr. Holmes ?

You are kicking me Madam Wermelinger.

Oh, you are fantastic, rauf! I can just picture the scene in my head, hahaha! I admire Sherlock Holmes much too much to ever dare dance with him. Not only would I inadvertently step on his expert dancing feet but I bet he would also see right through me and be bored to death in the end. Not fun for either of us (but perhaps quite amusing for those who'd be watching). Besides, there can be only one perfect ball partner for me and it isn't Dr. Watson's brilliant companion.

I love the "Madam Wermelinger" bit! I still have to think about how I feel about the nose ring, though...
