September, October and November (so far)- updatey!

Hey there,

It’s been a really long time since I’ve last blogged… again. So you get a really huge post with 59 photos. FIFTY NINE :O

Here’s a photo of the epic “Nintendo-thumb” that I received after playing the Scott Pilgrim video game a little too aggressively. heh

On a nice sunny day when Adam and I were both off work we went to Heaton Park and were both intrigued by this bird. Does anyone know what it is?

We also said hello to this peacock.

Then like a small child I couldn’t resist climbing on top of the sculptures outside of Heaton Hall.


We believe that this is a yak. It have cloven hooves.

I was practicing my Top Model poses ;)

Our friends Beth and Paul got married on September 11th- this is how Adam prepares the night before:

Me all set and ready to go to Sheffield!

Then I noticed while I was getting ready and taking narcissistic photos- that I could see Adam checking himself out behind me in the frame ho ho ho!

That’s how a Hotwell stays Hot

Mr. and Mrs. Riddlesworth!

The delicious cake. For reals, it was tres delicious.

Father of the Bride-

And this is where we slept in the cow tent. I don’t think in my life I will ever wake up to a view like that again-

Then later that month we also had a saunter through the Captain America set as they were filming portions to look like old New York in Manchester. Hooooraayyy architecture!

At the end of September I attended the monthly drink’n’draw where I consumed this epic hot chocolate with all the marshmallows. All of them.

October 1st is my day of birth. I turned 26 this year and this is Adam documenting me opening my gifts. (Paperchase is the best. BEST!)

This was a teapot from my BFF Arturo and tea cups from Adam!

Home Alone (the best movie ever!) from Adam

Pantry Peepers ovenmit from Paperchase

Annnnd the matching apron and tea towels- all from Adam

Then … an Xbox battery pack… I assume so we can continue to play Scott Pilgrim together without wires and such in the way…

I was kinda giddy

My somewhat lopsided birthday cake heh ;)

Hair now straightened due to the hair straightener that Adam’s mum got me, I am blowing out my birthday cake candles! (All 26 of them)

Then we spent the morning eating cake while watching Home Alone *glee*

At some point we tried this Italian place by our apartment- this is the pretty little outside part-

I don’t think we realized that we’d be getting little crispy whole fish in our appetizer- not my idea of delicious- I assure you we ate many- well, Adam ate lots… I just tried em. But after a while… just ew…

These are a few photos Adam took- the living room:

View from our living room window-

Some of my Halloween decor:

At the end of October I also went back to Canada for my friends Jim and Stacy’s wedding and to visit my folks of course. The following two photos sum up the event perfectly. Words really aren’t necessary- This was Total Eclipse of the Heart:

(Please note Stacy made that dress herself HOLY POOP am I right!?)

Then we’re into November where I hung out with Adam and Chris Dillon and we went out for my first bonfire night :D woo Guy Fawkes Day!

We got to go on fair rides and look at a large pile of wood on fire ;)

This is a random photo that Adam took of me after work one night laying on the couch as he thought it looked like I had a green beard.

November 11th is not just a special day to remember. It is also Adam Cadwell’s birthday. So this is what he woke up to- a trail of penguins leading to the living room.

Oooo presents!

I also made him a Vimto cheesecake

His loot-

We had a house-warming/ birthday party on the 12th so here he is blowing out his cupcake candles

And there we have it- a very large re-cap. I hope you enjoyed it

    Thank you! Hooray for the coot! I think I caused a bit of a Twitter stir with people trying to figure out what bird that was. It was fantastic to watch it roam around.
