cosy cats.



Today I have been feeling pretty rubbish still, but I wanted to do something nice and festive and cosy. It's not snowing in my village as I'm so close to the sea, but it sure is cold and windy!






I hung out with my cats by the fire for a little bit, and then decided it would be a great idea to listen to this Christmas playlist and make gingerbread animals/hearts.

I used my Granny's recipe, but it makes MILLIONS, so I decided to halve it, and it went a bit wrong somewhere. I don't know how or why, but the dough was too sticky and the shapes ended up spreading/not holding their shape. Oh well, they still taste delicious!! I put chocolate chips in some of them too :) mmmm.







Gingerbread fox loves gingerbread dinosaur.

I'm thinking about doing a cookery video soon... what do you reckon? I've always liked to pretend I'm on a cooking show.. measuring everything and putting it in little bowls before I start, imagining what I'd say, outtakes showing how messy I truly am..?
