In which there is Lego cake

I promised a while back that this wouldn’t turn into a wedding blog now that I am engaged, but there are some things that are just too much fun not to share. It’s also possible that it will ruin the surprise, but I have no idea how I am going to last a year without being all ‘Look at the things!’ I just have to share some of it in order to allow me to keep quiet about the other surprises. So my mum is making our wedding cake and has got really into it. She has got out the cake books, made sketches and done prototypes. I would like to share with you Prototype 1. (Prototype 2 is to be tried in a couple of weeks). I have to apologise for one thing. My family had eaten quite a bit of it before I thought of taking pictures. It was actually based on a 4x2 blue Lego brick. I hope you can imagine the rest.

Engagement Present cake tins.

Note that even the little nodules have cake inside.

I also had a beautiful picnic the other week when Britain was enjoying its 2 weeks on sunshine. We did home-made bagel salmon sandwiches, drank Pimms and played Canasta in the park. I’m not exactly living the wild ‘twenties-something in London’ life, but it’s good. I have also been playing endless amounts of Star Ocean: Till the End of Time. It’s an RPG for the PlayStation 2 and is great fun. These last few weeks I have been playing it nearly every night. I’ve clocked up nearly 90 hours and I’ve unlocked the final area to reach the final boss!

For a fashion blog I am afraid I have no new and exciting outfits to wear. I hate to point the blame (but I’m about to) all the photos my boy took of me last time we attempted it were blurry or my face looked weird. Maybe I actually have a weird lopsided expression all the time… Anyhow I now have a tripod! So if the summer sun returns I am going to play around and see if I can work something out. It’s a whole new area for me.  

Along with my tripod my parents also brought down a whole bunch of other stuff which has allowed me to set up the perfect Neil Gaiman collection, complete with ghost figure on top of The Graveyard Book.

All my favourite books in one place!


  1. A lego cake AND reference to Neil Gaiman in the same post. What treats. I love Neil Gaiman's books, though it's hard to decide between The Graveyard Book and Neverwhere as my favourite. HAven't read Smoke and Mirrors. It's going on my list now.
