Birthday Sneak Peek

Birthday cake 2013

I just wanted to share some photos from my birthday (which was last month). My birthdays are usually one extreme or another. Two years ago, for example, it was mostly amazing. A year ago, it was mostly disastrous, but then ended on a fantastic note. This year, I was having a little bit of a depressive episode during my birthday week, and that meant that I wasn’t much of a happy bunny. Luckily, I still managed to host a little party at my house, and baked myself a truly magnificent cake (above – LOOK AT IT) :) The evening had wine (pictured), pink cider (not pictured, had already drunk it by then), and did I mention the CAKE?

My wonderful friends also brought a few presents with them.

I even received a special package from the Netherlands, from my favourite Dutch lady, Eline <3 This cupcake drawstring bag is seriously gorgeous. So striking and sturdy. It was really the perfect surprise.

And finally, a little peek at one of my “Maltese” presents. It’s an owl-shaped hot water bottle. Microwaveable and everything! I haven’t used this yet, but it looks so cute and charming that I’m keeping it out all year long!

I wonder what next year will bring? :)

Sunday Photo Mishmash: Spring is here!


I made myself lunch a couple of weeks ago. Delicious success.

I made my birthday cake (a rainbow cake) for my birthday (duh…) and it was quite wonderful.


Delicious pasta and even more delicious red wine on a sunny Saturday in the countryside with a couple of lovely ladies.

Easter holidays for the next two weeks! Which means that there must be quite a bit of Hardcore Studying and lots of Eating-Eating-Eating. Mostly, I’m looking forward to a bit of a rest. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday.
