Wordless Wednesday: Baking

Wordless Wednesday is a new weekly tag created by Grace at Kimmie.gg. Each week there’s a new topic, unrelated to books, which will hopefully provide some insight into my life outside of reading.

Each week, I will post a topic for a Wordless Wednesday that you may answer in whatever fashion you may like. All you need to do is link back to Kimmie.gg in your post so that I can also read your content!

This week’s theme was Hobbies but I adapted it a little to fit one of my main hobbies, outside of reading of course, which is baking. I have a few favourite recipes but when it comes down to it I’m willing to give everything a go. Certain recipes worked better than others; I’m really good at making cookies and cheesecakes but not so good at brownies and truffles. I have my favourite tried and true recipes – gingerbread cookies – and ones I have to try the next time I pick up my cookbooks – marshmallows.

I’m taking part in a Great British Bake Off challenge next week for work. Each of us are bringing in some kind of cake or cookie and we’ll vote for one Star Baker. I’m bringing in some gingerbread cookies because they’re my favourite things to make. They probably won’t win but hopefully my colleagues will enjoy them.

Wordless Wednesday: Home Sweet Home

This week’s theme was Home Sweet Home, and while I have already wrote a post about my home town for the Souvenirs From Across the World feature I enjoyed being able to go back and share more pictures from both Southend and London. After all, despite only living in Southend (at the moment at least) I spend enough time in London that it really does count as my home away from home.

Wordless Wednesday: Best Friends for Life

This week’s theme was Best Friends for Life, and it’s all about pets. Now I mentioned my dog, Tommy, late last week when I published my Real Neat Blog Award post but any excuse to talk about him a little more is something I’m going to jump on, and it’s also an excuse to share more pictures of him as well. There’s nothing better than coming home from work and having Tommy jump up to greet me, happy to see me again.

Wordless Wednesday: Fashion

This week’s theme was Art, and while I normally try and stick to the themes that are set for this one the only artist that came to mind when I thought of my favourites was Vincent Van Gogh. I love going to museums and seeing all the work on display, don’t get me wrong, but I never really seek out specific artist. So instead I decided to focus on fashion, because after all, isn’t fashion a form of art?

This week’s theme was Wanderlust and ever since I discovered Grace was making this a weekly tag and saw the topics she’d picked for each week this was the one I was the most excited for. I love travelling, one day I’d like to be able to say I’ve been to every continent and every country. I want to see everything there is to see and do everything there is to do and I’m not going to let anything stand in my way.

Wordless Wednesday: Soundtrack to My Life

This week’s theme was Songs of Your Life but I adapted it a little and called it Soundtrack of My Life. I wouldn’t say these are songs that relate to turning points in my life, more songs that, no matter how much time will pass, will always be favourites of mine. Asides from books music is one of the big loves of my life. In fact I possibly love music more than I love reading because if it comes down to it I would rather leave my Kindle at home than my iPod.
