This is a bit of an unusual post (namely because there is no recipe involved) so I’ll keep it short. Lacking is the theme of my life at the moment, but it’s going well. It’s an adventure!
I haven’t been posting any recipes lately because The Boy and I have moved out. I talked about it in my last post, so check that out if you haven’t already.
Our kitchen is a bit of a shambles – I barely have enough room in our little apartment for all of my props and baking tins!! The Boy has imposed strict conditions on how much of our place will be dominated by blog stuff (95% of the space is reasonable, right?), so I’m currently trying to jam all of my teapots into our linen cupboard.
I don’t know how long it will be before I manage to get the next recipe up, but I promise that I’m trying to get the place in order as quickly as possible so that I can get recipes on the blog. We also have no internet, which would kind of getting in the way of blogging if I was doing it.
In the meantime, keep an eye on my Instagram feed. That is just about the only thing in my life that is thriving right now. You can take bets on how many days it takes for us to get our dining table up three flights of stairs (we’re on day five of no table at the moment) and see various photos where I perch my tea cups on things that are not tables.
There is a distinct lack of Norman, I must admit. That won’t be for long though, I’m going home to visit the handsome man next week.
For now, this photo of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes will have to keep you satiated. They were the first things I baked in my new kitchen (!) and they were for a charity event at work. It’s going to take a bit to get used to the oven, but they turned out okay! I couldn’t help but sing “chocolate and vanilla, swirl, swirl” as I was making them.
I hope some of you are Orange is the New Black fans!
Looking forward to regular internet and regular baking adventures!

Good luck with the table! I recently ( a year ago counts as recent right?) moved out of an apartment and there is nothing worse than dragging furniture up and down stairs!
Thanks Matt!! It was THE WORST!! There’s a table update coming soon – not the greatest news haha. A funny story though 🙂
Sounds interesting! Look forward to reading all about it 🙂
Congrats on your new place! Moving is quite hectic, so take your time 🙂
Thank you 🙂 we’re pretty much moved in now – I still have to go to my parents’ house for internet though!
Moving is always stressful, congrats on the new place. Hoping you are back to a normal routine and have Norman back really soon. The cupcakes look wonderful!
I so relate! Just sold our family home and are in total limbo. My sweet but thoroughly inadequate temporary home has the most “lacking” kitchen ever – no pantry – nowhere to put anything – and a terrible oven. It’s an adventure!
I wish you all the best as you settle in.
Oh thank you! You are too sweet!
I’ve only just moved out and it was fun, but hard work… I can’t imagine what it must be like to move an entire HOME!! I hope your transition to a new, non-temporary home is as quick as possible 🙂
