Another month bites the dust! My October was a mix of Autumn excitement followed by two weeks of inevitable coughing and sneezing. I feel like I’m finally through the worst of it now, and just in time for November – which is always a super busy month in Casa Cwtch; four birthdays (including my own!), Nanowrimo, and then the big Christmas build-up. Anyway, despite being a snotty, spluttering mess for most of October, it’s still my favourite time of year 🙂
I didn’t shop much in October other than picking up a few Christmas and Birthday presents, but it did finally get cold enough to start wearing my new grey coat from Primark. It was cheap as chips and I love it! I’m looking forward to wrapping up this month and cracking into my massive scarf collection.
I feel like it’s been a quiet month for TV. I finally got around to watching Stranger Things and – sorry! – I love all the 80s pop culture, and I kind of like it… but, I don’t get the hype. I will persevere, but maybe I set my bar too high? Sunny and I started watching Tin Star with Tim Roth; he hated it (he thought it was too dark and couldn’t stand the music), I LOVED it. Other TV shows include Outlander (which continues to please – it’s just so beautiful to look at!), Mr Robot, and of course, GBBO.
As well as making Halloween Doooooonuts, Salted Caramel Macarons, and these Pumpkin Traybake Cakes – I also became obsessed with Cadbury Roses Cake Bars which come in Strawberry Cream (my fave!) and Orange Cream.
I didn’t get out much during October because – like I said – I caught the lurgy, but top of the pops this month of course goes to the new Oliver Bonas store which opened up on The Hayes. I wanted to buy everything! 🙂
What have you been enjoying this October? Have a great weekend everyone! x
