If there is one thing that the cold weather makes me crave it's a super hot cup of tea, and what's a hot cup of tea without cake, right?
On the weekend (as part of my tantrum) I pottered* around the living room, tidied up, vacuumed and placed my succulents into rustic glass domes. I dusted the sofa table, shuffled some artworks and plugged in our new lamp. A place for everything and everything in it's place**.
With the cleaning frenzy behind me, I went outside and apologised to Dave for being a lunatic. We embraced and he promised to make a cake for us to enjoy later.
He baked a delicious banana cake complete with cream cheese icing and toasted almonds which was perfect as I'd been hoping to fill my new cake plate with something scrumptious ever since carting it at Target a few days earlier. While the kids were in bed he and I cosied up on the lounge, lit a scented candle, poured a hot cup of tea and devoured a mammoth slice of cake in absolute silence.
It was the blissness***.
***moments after the kids emerged from their rooms the house returned to chaos and the pretty scene above was destroyed, naturally.
Tea cups, glass cake plate and dome, lamp, bike tote and scented candle are all from Target. This post is sponsored by Target.
