Really Random Tuesday is a meme created by Suko at Suko's Notebook which is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.
I meant to show these pictures last week, but NaNoWriMo took over and I didn't get time. Speaking of NaNoWriMo, you will see that I now have a word count widget on the left hand side of my blog. As of last night, I had written 17,306 words, if it has more on it now whilst reading this post, then I am probably having a good day.
The pictures below were taken during Half Term which ended with Halloween. The weather was rather dismal, so we decided that we would have a bit of a cooking and crafting week. Now I don't usually like to cook with the girls as they tend to argue over who does what, but I think I have finally cracked it by giving them each a recipe to cook. I let them pick what they wanted to do, then got them make their own shopping list and then when we reached Sainsbury's I sent them off to find the items they needed.
One of my girls decided she wanted to make Rocky Road and we followed a rather simple recipe from Nigella Lawson. I love Nigella Lawson's cookbooks, but she is destined to make me rather fat.
I haven't done a lot of reading this week, due to NaNoWriMo, but the novellas have definitely been the ideal thing to read this month.
I have begun Christmas planning already. I am hoping to do my Christmas scrap album again this year. I have already bought the album and hope to prepare a few pages in advance. I have also made a list of Christmas books I hope to read, which I will share with you later in the month.
I know I am blogging a lot less recently, but it really should only be like this for this month, once NaNoWriMo is over I hope to be around a lot more regularly. So thank you to all you lovely bloggers who are sticking by me through this busy month.
