Sunday Summary #48


1.Hot chocolate in my Christmas mug 2.Homemade Smarties cookies 3.Spicy peanut soba noodles with honey & sesame chicken 4.Minestrone soup

I’m afraid this Sunday Summary post is going to be rather short and sweet as I haven’t had time to do much of anything this week, apart from uni work. I’ve even been so busy that I’ve only had time to take four Instagram photos – shocking, eh? All my deadlines are creeping closer and I’m starting to get a bit worried that I’m not going to get it all done in time. I’m not usually one to stress out about essays, but I seem to have left everything to the last minute this year so the next week or two aren’t going to be very fun! I’ve got a 10 minute presentation to do on Tuesday which I haven’t even started the reading for yet, and then an essay due on Friday which I haven’t started writing yet. Then I’ve got a little while to sort the next lot of essays out, which are due on the 10th and the 13th of December. I can’t wait to be done!

So apart from essay reading I haven’t really done anything, gone anywhere or seen anyone this week. Probably the most exciting thing I’ve done was bake some cookies, thanks to Sarah’s recipe. I decided to swap the milk chocolate for Smarties and I only made half the quantity, although I’ve eaten rather a lot of them already so maybe I should have just made the full amount! I would definitely recommend trying the recipe as it makes the perfect sweet and chewy cookies.

What have you all been up to this week? Please tell me lots of exciting stories so I can live vicariously through you – SO bored right now!

      I think it's from Marks and Spencers, it was a present a couple of years ago but I'm sure they'd have similar ones again this year!
