  • One of my 2020 resolutions was to read more, so I dusted out my old Kindle Paperwhite and treated it to this new case - I just love the fact that the e-reader is a virtual library and the case matches that perfectly ๐Ÿ’•#kindle
  • Booked myself onto an Indian cookery course at @waitroseandpartners this week and it was so much fun - I learned a lot (made paneer and chapatis from scratch!) and cant wait to book the next one. I also made Butter Chicken and Aloo Gobi ๐Ÿ˜‹#waitrosecookeryschool
