Random Likings

It's been a while since I've done one of these, primarily since I am primarily writing about flowers and weddings and haven't been doing the random research that I used to. Anyway... here are some random likings I have been sitting on for a while

1. Celebrities reading mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel
This is the sixth installment of this very funny feature and worth finding 1-5 on YouTube

2. Great British Sewing Bee Series 2
I LOVED the Great British Sewing Bee and am so excited that series 2 is finally starting on BBC Two on Tuesday 18 Feb. It's about the only reality show I can stomach and, no, it's not just because Patrick is such a fox.

3. Cardiff Children's Lit Fest 8-13 April 2014
I love this festival. We went to a few of the events last year (most notably Tin Tin and Asterix drawing) and this year's line-up looks at least as interesting. I have my eye on Dennis the Menace vs Horrid Henry and the Murderous Maths. I think it's great for kids to see that authors are actual people and find out about what goes into creating their favourite characters and stories.

4. This Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding Recipe

It may be hard to believe now, but it won't be too long before we'll have to put away the comforting winter puddings. Before that happens, make sure you make this self saucing chocolate pudding. It's simple and delicious and you probably already have the ingredients in your cupboard.

5. Starfish Ring
Even though I can't say "starfish" without a little part of me sniggering, I really like this ring from Trinkettes
