Five Happy Things #6

1) When the lovely people at Somerset House popped this fine thing up. Christmas trees and blue skies a happy Pippa makes.

2) Having a little school reunion while home for Christmas. Way to much story telling and way too much gossip!

3) This cake. I was baking a cake for a charity bake sale and I asked Jan from Maddocks Farm Organics if she would like to send some flowers over to help me decorate it. I really wasn't expecting to be sent a box of the most beautiful edible flowers in the world and it was bought for £20 almost straight away! The biggest thank you to Jan!

4) Rome. A few days ago I got back from a uni trip to Rome (post to follow..!) and it was brilliant! Cheese, pizza, cheese, pasta, cheese, gelato and cheese. Oh and some really interesting monuments and ruins (the actual reason I was there!).

5) Going on a little getaway to Oxford with the fella. Somehow I hadn't been before but I will certainly be heading back.
