Cruffins

Posting about sweet, decadent treats isn't the usual January blog content, I know, but I'm always happy to bake new things, no matter what time of year it is. If you followed me last year, you'll likely know how much I valued the Puff the Bakery baking course I started last summer. I went from… Continue reading Cruffins

Yoga in the Forest

New year, new things... I'm not going to lie, it's been tough not doing new things every day. There have been many, many times where I've been wandering around my house, convinced that I should be doing something. I couldn't resist the lure of the new for long though, and I'm back, ready to dive… Continue reading Yoga in the Forest

Best of the Year

It's been a long year and I've just finished my challenge of doing something new every day. There's been some good, some bad, and some I never want to do again (here's looking at you, Rubik's cube) but I've had fun exploring new areas and discovering interesting things. I wanted to look back and sum… Continue reading Best of the Year

Day 357 – Darts Match

I struggled to find a new thing for today. I've been waiting on a few deliveries for big new things that would help me close the year with a bang, but due to well, everything, they've either been cancelled or not arrived. I wanted to find something bigger than the average new thing to fill… Continue reading Day 357 – Darts Match

Day 344 – Earth View from Space

I found today's new thing accidentally whilst browsing YouTube and knew then and there that I'd be cancelling whatever else I had planned – when you see "NASA Live Stream - Earth From Space" it's hard not to click the play button!

Day 343 – Homemade Christmas Cards

I enjoyed making yesterday's new thing, a Christmas wreath, so much that today I wanted to extend that nice Christmassy feeling. I stuck on a cheesy Netflix Christmas film, turned on the Christmas tree lights, and set to work making my own Christmas cards. Photo by Jonathan Borba on Pexels.com I'm normally a big card… Continue reading Day 343 – Homemade Christmas Cards

Day 340 – Infused Alcohol

I'm not a huge drinker, but I do love a cocktail. My favourite, a Manhattan, I attempted to make for myself way back in January with mixed results. Thankfully, I've gotten a lot better since then, and after spending most of the year inside, I'm pretty much now a professional. One thing I've never done… Continue reading Day 340 – Infused Alcohol

Day 337 – Learned to Mime

I've enjoyed many new skills I've learned this year, but some of the biggest surprise hits have been my new circus abilities: not only can I juggle, I can also spin plates, and make balloon animals too. Today, in my continued efforts to try clown school from the comfort of my living room, I learned… Continue reading Day 337 – Learned to Mime

Day 336 – Attempted the Splits

November was a busy month for me as not only did I write an actual book, I also learned to do the splits! Well, kind of. Photo by Gabby K on Pexels.com At the beginning of November, I mentioned to a friend that I'd like to try and do the splits. She decided to join… Continue reading Day 336 – Attempted the Splits

Day 334 – Sticky Toffee Pudding

I have been waiting to make this one since my early days of Puff School. A true British bake, sticky toffee pudding evokes many memories of cosy evenings sat by the fire at my parent's house. It was also the dessert at my wedding, so it really has special memories for me, and I'm amazed… Continue reading Day 334 – Sticky Toffee Pudding
