Vegan MOFO!

Hello! I know I know, I haven’t blogged in ages! It’s been crazy busy here in Pixie land lately, and this week I’m trying get everything sorted ready to move house on the weekend! Eeek!

And yep, that’s another house move. So far, we have spent Christmas in a new house every year for at least the past 6 years.. Every time we move, we say “We’ll definitely be staying here longer than the last house!”… And then every year, somehow it doesn’t end up working out that way. Oh well, perhaps we’re really just nomads? .. With lots and lots of stuff? I honestly don’t know how we accumulate so much! ..Well, I do.. I have a lot of art supplies, I hoard kitchen doodahs and gadgets like a culinary magpie, and I have enough clothes for a small country… I could try blaming it on our little one.. Kids have lots of stuff, right..? But really, it’s just me..

So, having been too busy (that’s my excuse anyway..) to blog lately, and getting busier by the day as the move approaches, I have gone and done the sane thing of signing up to this years  Vegan MOFO! Which is essentially a month-long blogging challenge, where bloggers attempt to blog every day (or at least 20 times) about all things vegan! Completely sane of course.. and will in no way drive me bonkers.. (Though I do have mental images of myself trying to keep typing out posts whilst balancing boxes to move on my head..)

Anyway, I have a tonne of posts piling up to share with you all (I still need to tell you all about the Raw Fruit Fest! So much to tell!), as well as lots of other lovely things. But I thought that I would ease back into blogging with a nice and simple post today.

Pimms O’clock!

I love special occasions. Reasons to celebrate, take a step out of the normal routine of life and just sit back and enjoy yourself 🙂
Today was my dad’s birthday. Growing up, I can fondly remember all of the wonderful parties my parents threw for me. A disco when I was 13, “themed” home-made birthday cakes to match something that I was doing at that point in my life. I had dinosaur shaped cakes as a kid, elaborately decorated with fondant-dinosaurs. A paint palette shaped cake when I was 18. And my dad once spent several hours with icing pens, drawing me a pointillist-style version of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss”.
