Unless you find binge-watching ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ loafing around in pjs and baking muffins particularly thrilling. However, don’t leave just yet…I do have a rather fantastic recipe for you today!

10 worthwhile Wednesday reads

Hey friends,

Summer came flouncing in unannounced this week. I personally couldn’t be happier about it. I even attempted to take my study into the great outdoors, however it wasn’t so successful. The wind whipped up my papers and the bugs had a field day attacking my legs. I have but one final pesky exam to get through and then I will be free! Today instead of a recipe I’m sharing a round-up of my favourite links from across the big wide web…

Pumpkin soup, romance and rugby madness

Hello friends!

I’m the first to admit that I am a hopeless romantic. It’s pretty obvious considering that my favourite movie is Pride and Prejudice (and not just the inauthentic Hollywood version either…I’m talking the extended BBC classic one.)
