October was a very busy month for us. We’ve been to London twice, to Scotland, Birmingham and a few other shorter trips. My husband and I went for a double-bicycle ride in Manchester as part of his birthday celebrations, it was fun and new. We’ve also celebrated 2 anniversaries: when we’ve met and our 1st date. I continued to bake along the GBBO and made lots of cakes, a Tudor pie and fondant fancies. Of course, the month finished great with Halloween. November will be just as amazing, as we have a couple of things planned and it’s my birthday too. Don’t forget to give me a follow on Instagram if don’t want to miss anything.
