Daleks got my husband!

But he wanted them to. He was so excited about this shirt, and had to have it finished in time for our friends' engagement party. He even sewed on the buttons - I'd finished everything else but had to go out.
Mind you, this photo was taken as we were about to head out for our first anniversary, almost a month later. Andrew prefers being behind the camera, and it's hard to get the camera out of his hands for long enough to take a photo of him!

Onion. Garlic. Bacon. Cream. Eggs. Parmesan. Pepper. Delicious.

Playing nice

Just after Christmas, we acquired a new bunny. She wasn't supposed to be ours - we were just minding her because her parents' owners needed to get rid of her, but her new owner wasn't ready to take her yet. Turns out, he didn't come to get her at all.
So we named her Nox, and eventually got her desexed. Then came introducing her to the boys. Prior to desexing, we'd put her cage inside their pen, and she'd made a couple of escape attempts which involved a lot of chasing (and her jumping over their heads) so we knew we had to go carefully.
We had one playdate inside - on the dining table! - which went so well, that Andrew thought we should try them in the pen. Chasing ensued almost immediately. Another long playdate went well, but we weren't going to make the same mistake. Then, on Saturday, Andrew decided to let them have a run together. They chased for a while, then calmed down. Things weren't so nice at bedtime, so they were separated, but they played nicely again yesterday, and even went to bed together.
And look at them now!

Looks like macarons work at home too

Bitter chocolate and a beautiful tangy lemon.
Made with the help of my dear friend, Michelle, though I got to play expert this time.
She did make carbonara for lunch though!

Our Darling Boy

Alexander Hendrick was born on February 19, weighing a respectable 7lb7oz (3.37kg). He's a beautiful, sweet little thing, and everyone adores him.

He's not really mine, of course. He belongs to my best friend, Jill, and her lovely husband, Jimmy. They're wonderful parents so far, and I get the joy of being an honorary auntie.
I'll have my own one day, but for now, this is just perfect.
