Day 323 – Watercolour Flowers

I've tried painting different things for a couple of my new thing challenges, but it's fair to say it's not a strong suit of mine. Of all the things I've done, the Bob Ross tutorial, where we painted our happy little clouds with watercolours, was my favourite. I loved the softness and adaptability of the… Continue reading Day 323 – Watercolour Flowers

Day 322 – Made Brookies

Today's new thing was going to be a bit of a mad science experiment. I'd read a recipe that involved combining two of the most popular bakes of all time, the brownie and the cookie, brought together for the first time to create...the brookie! Photo by on Like a mad culinary scientist, I… Continue reading Day 322 – Made Brookies

Day 321 – Self-Hypnosis

A few weeks ago I tried to be hypnotised through a YouTube video. I was very sceptical, but to my amazement, it appeared it actually worked, a bit anyway. With that experience in mind, I decided today to try and see if I could hypnotise myself, a practice many use to help them sleep or… Continue reading Day 321 – Self-Hypnosis

Day 320 – Made a Cryptex

After getting a taste for code breaking after my Bletchley Park challenge the other day, I remembered I had a kit on how to make a cryptex, hidden away in the cupboard. This kit was aimed at kids, but it looked like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon, plus it promised that I'd… Continue reading Day 320 – Made a Cryptex

Day 319 – Chocolate Entremet

Today's new thing is one I've been looking forward to and imagining since the summer. I'd been saving the last bake from Volume 1 of my baking course with Puff the Bakery until I had a special occasion, but now I'm well on my way in Volume 2 of the course, I need to know… Continue reading Day 319 – Chocolate Entremet

Day 318 – Among Us

I've tried to stay away from computer games as new things as much as possible this year. I don't play many games so a new one is never far from reach, plus I like the idea of discovering more new things away from screens and the internet. With that being said, I've still managed to… Continue reading Day 318 – Among Us

Day 317 – Chin Chin

Rather than what two english gentleman clinking glasses together would say, today's new thing Chin Chin is the surprising name of a sweet Nigerian snack. I found the recipe a little while ago in an issue of BBC Good Food magazine and I've been waiting for the right time to give this tasty sounding dish… Continue reading Day 317 – Chin Chin

Day 316 – Pyramid Solitaire

Today was one of those days that flow by and it's dinner time before you know it. I couldn't remember what new thing I'd planned for today, but I was hoping it would be a nice and easy one. Luckily for me, I'd planned to play a solo card game, specifically pyramid solitaire. Photo by… Continue reading Day 316 – Pyramid Solitaire

Day 315 – Bubble Tea

Bubble tea has been something I've been vaguely aware of for years, but never actually tried. I'm not really sure why, it could be the fear of the unknown, or I just didn't like the look of, but for whatever reason, I'd stayed away for years. A few months ago a friend of mine sent… Continue reading Day 315 – Bubble Tea

Day 314 – Futsal Match

Having been in a second lockdown for nearly two weeks here in Germany, I was surprised to see that live sports matches were still happened, just "behind closed doors". Surprised, in the way that I had it in my head the whole country was on pause, but happy because it gave me an excuse to… Continue reading Day 314 – Futsal Match
