Okay, so it’s currently 14:15 and I’ve just started baking. My plan for this year was to bake as much as humanly possible, and I set aside today for a bumper baking day. But in amongst waiting for shopping to be delivered and finally getting my butt in gear to go out to the shops for some essential ingredients (I always forget butter), I haven’t been as organised as I wanted to be. I planned to make a gingerbread loaf and a chocolate torrone as well, which I now have all of the ingredients for, I just need that last spurt of motivation to get it all prepared.
To help with motivation, I’ve put The Princess Switch on Netflix. Have you watched The Princess Switch yet? I’ve seen it hyped up on Buzzfeed and I wanted to see what it would be like. I’m only half way through, but I’m enjoying it so far- I thought it was quite apt putting this one on, seen as it’s all based around a baking competition. It’s also giving me major Parent Trap vibes- the twin thing, one putting on a British accent, it’s like a dream Parent Trap/High School Musical crossover, with Vanessa Hudgens playing both parts. I have to admit that as much as I enjoy the classic Christmas films, I do love the modern ones as well, the cheesy, predictable ones they put on Channel 5. I watched A Christmas Prince last year when it was all over social media, and it was gloriously cheesy!
In other news, it’s just occurred to me this very second that I haven’t even eaten my advent calendar chocolate today; what have I been doing all day?! Let me introduce you to my advent calendar for this year, it is a Hotel Chocolat Supermilk one, which is supposed to be milk chocolate, but with less sugar in. I think the packaging on this calendar is very regal because it’s gold, and look, it even folds out- it feels very grown up!
I need to get back to my baking now, but thank you for reading my ramblings today, and I hope you remembered to eat your advent calendar chocolate this morning- I’m off to devour mine now!
See you tomorrow,
