Anyhoo, here's what's been titilitating my visual tastebuds this week!
-and pancakes, crispy bacon and maple syrup. You do, honestly. I was just very peckish when this photo was taken.
-The pyusses. I felt sorry for them over the festive period as we had to leave them at home when we went out to my parents, but they were visited by their Great-Auntie every day and they love her to bits.
Coco was over the moon with the mouse she got in her Christmas stocking and alternates between giving it kisses and trying to rip its head off.
Although they sulked with us a little bit for leaving them, they soon got back to being their normal selves. One of their favourite hobbies is being pervy. As soon as they hear the shower running, they bolt through to the bathroom, sit side by side on the toilet seat and peek round the shower curtain. They seem to think the water is dangerous though because if the see it touch you, they start crying and whining, and won't stop until you get out. Here they are perving at the Kiwi (no naked Kiwi shots, thankfully)
-This story about a man who set off a major security operation in Newark aiport, because he did a film-style run through security just to kiss his girlfriend goodbye! Aww!
-Receiving e-mails from shops with new Spring items. Looks like my bankie is in for a battering again as more 'Colene' things come into the shops. Parisian polkadots? Yes please! All items below are just from Miss Selfridge - I love the red jumpsuit, and the patent black booties.

Although these may look very festive, they actually still seem quite appropriate considering the weather outside - we have a LOT of snow!!! Apparently temps could dip as low as -21 on Friday. I'm sorry, but did someone move me to Antartica without telling me?!?
Anyhoo, I lost count of how many of these I made over Christmas - the ones with glitter and Gingerbread men, are obviously gingerbread.
And the little red candy canes (seriously, how cute? They actually taste of peppermint too!!!) were either red velvet, or chocolate chip. The little hint of mint from the canes worked nicely with the chocolate, and I dusted a little sparkle on them to make them even more festivey!
