Pit and peak of the week - week 36!

It's that time of the week again, where I channel the Kardashians and talk about the little things that made me happy and sad during the week.  I love doing these posts because they make me sit and think back over the past seven days and appreciate the little things in life!

Pit of the week first as usual.  Ok, so I've been really busy lately, more so than usual.  It's times like these that I feel bad for little Bailey the brat and then realise that he's my main priority and end up pulling back on events and launches because I don't have anyone to take over and mind him all the time.  So on Monday I'd an hour at home after work before having to head out again and so I pottered about and got ready, headed out and a couple of hours later, came home, had my dinner and blogged a bit.  Happy days.  I went to bed exhausted and the next morning got up and went to feed Bailey.  But I noticed that his food from the night before was still there.... I'd forgotten to feed the little puddin' the night before ..... In the 12 years I've had him, I've never forgotten to feed him and to make it worse, on that previous night, he wasn't even pining or begging for food.  He was happy out that I was home and was tearing the legs off his latest toy.  I felt awful and then gave him lots of attention and snuggles for the rest of the week.  Poor Bailey.

Why you forget me mam?....
The peak of the week will come as no surprise in that this week finally saw the Great Irish Bake Off coming to our TV screens!  Joanne's soon to be hubby, Will is a contestant on it and we're all very proud of him!  They had a viewing party over at theirs on Thursday where there was cake and treats as far as the eye could see.  His parents came up from Limerick and they'd friends and family come watch the first episode with them!  If you missed the episode, shame on you!  But you can catch up on it here and make sure to check out Will's blog here where he'll be posting lots of new recipies over the coming months.  And finally, be sure to subscribe to his brand new YouTube channel where he'll be showing us how to make lots of lovely treats!





I'm totally allowed to have a second peak of the week because I'm the boss and nearly cacked my pants on Friday because of this.  As well as being a mad fan of the Great Irish Bake Off, I'm loving the Great British Bake Off too and that's what I'm watching every Tuesday night and you should be too.  Anyway, I have developed a rather large soft spot in my heart for Howard.  Howard who's buns were squashed by Mel during the chats and Howard who's custard was stolen during the trifle challenge... Ah I love him and was over the absolute moon when he tweeted me the other day!  Well people, he followed me on Twitter..... Life made!  Make sure you watch him this Tuesday and you'll fall in love with him too!

So all in all, a great week!

  1. I am loving all the bake offs but they are making me hungry so very hungry - plus I am prone to talk about soggy bottoms. Well done will I can't wait to keep track of how your doing

  3. Howard tweeted you?? I'm jealous beyond belief. The Baking Shows are my highlights and my jeans lowpoints for the weeks.
