I’ve spent the last couple of days piling on the food in Newcastle and at home and currently recovering from it all! We took the cats up to Newcastle as no one in London was available to look after them. Nether less, after a good couple of days hiding in one room they’re certainly, shall we say, a lot more bolder than before! They’ve settled into Sam’s mum’s house for the time being, but will be heading back to London over the New Year. now they’re lounging around in the living room (as you can see from the photos, Mario, posing for a photo!).

I shall be back in full swing of things what with my new job and illustration work- all new and exciting happenings, which is a positive start to the New Year.

I’d just like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May the New Year bring you good health, happiness and exciting things!

Christmas ended pretty quickly, right? By the way, I say this every year. I spent nearly two weeks between Newcastle and Doncaster, flitting up and down visiting Sam and my folks in Doncaster.

I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with Sam, his mum and the dog called Darcy! He’s so cute and fluffy like a walking cloud!



We travelled back down to Doncaster to see my folks on Boxing Day and it had started to snow. The next day the whole street was covered in thick layer of snow! Not so fun when it turns to slush though.


So far, I’ve spent the rest of the week here enjoying the peace and quietness of home. I’ve been overfed by my parents- can’t complain! We had two hot pots in one day, again, pretty awesome! Hot pots are good when it’s a little bit cold and you just want something warm and hot to eat. The way to eat a hot pot is to start with a savoury soup and it can be spicy, which I think is the best way to eat it! Or you could just add miso soup as the stock plus carrots, taro, tomatoes and sweetcorn to add more flavour to it. You then put meat, veg, noodles, fish balls, prawns etc. into a pot of soup and you just wait until it’s cooked basically. It’s also a great way of eating bits of everything and sharing tasty food at the same time.

Hot pot.

I’m sort of ready to go back to work on Monday… not. Sigh.
