    THANKFUL FRIDAY #4

    Another week, another list of ten things which put a smile on my face...

    1. T- MINUS 2 WEEKS PEOPLE
    Exactly two weeks today and I will be in my Christmas pyjamas, full of quality street and Buck's Fizz! Time to get a move on with that Christmas shopping....
    2. LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE, LEMON DRIZZLE CAKE HAVE YE ANY NUTS?
    I'm going to keep repeating that quote till someone gets the reference. Last weekend involved baking. My favourite lemon drizzle cake at that. The recipe is coming here next week and it's a gooden I promise!
    3. DATE DAY.
    Last Saturday Tom and I spent the day tasting wine down at Vinopolis (which you can read about here) followed by a browse in Borough Market and eating burgers and lobsters in, you guessed it, Burger & Lobster. Best day EVER!

    4. BLOGGERS EATING BURGERS AT BRIOCHE
    Try saying that one fast. The lovely Pippa organised a bloggers dinner this week at super-cool burger pop-up Brioche. Not only were the burgers amazing (hello buttermilk fried chicken, blue cheese and bacon) but I also met some total babes. Case in point: Laura, Kate, Georgie, Maryam & Charlotte.
    5.AMERICAN HORROR STORY
    I don't know if this one makes me happy or not. I started watching American Horror Story to fill the void left by Narcos and I'm sort of hooked. It terrifies me and makes me feel really anxious but I can't stop watching. 
     
    6. CONTENT WITH CONTENT
    The English language is a thing of wonder right? For the first time in FOREVER, I have posts lined up to go out three times each week until Christmas. I have so much content right now that I am struggling to squeeze everything in - which is a really nice problem to have.

    7. MEAT SWEAT WEDNESDAYS
    Wednesday seems to be my day for feasting and this week I went to my favourite local restaurant Istanbul for the feast of feasts. This is supposed to be for two people...
    8. THURSDAY IS THE NEW FRIDAY
    Tom had an exciting meeting in London today so he came down last night & took the day off work so we've got a nice long weekend! No work Fridays make me a very happy indeed....

    9. CHRISTMAS DRINKS
    Drinking all the calories and using all the free wi-fi in Starbucks is good for the soul
    10. TIS THE SEASON FOR CHRISTMAS PARTIES.
    The first of my work Christmas parties happened yesterday and I've got four more happening next week. I really really love Christmas...but my liver and waistline do not! My first party happened over at The Fence in Farringdon - no boring turkey here - the menu was a fusion of Lebanese flavours so we tried goats cheese with sesame, venison and prune tagine and a traditional borek dessert. No boring turkey in sight!
