And I hope that I’ll find a new job quickly, otherwise I’ll be force to travel to my current one half an hour in a train. We will see. Anyway back to a new town. After we found a perfect flat we went for a lunch with bf’s work friends. It was do much fun to sit in a garden, have a nice chat and a drink. Of course I had to mention that my hobby is baking and that I have a blog. So now I’m baking a batch of cupcakes for them. As a first I chose a chocolate muffins with creamy frosting with marshmallows and coconut. I’m also planning to bake a carrot cake ones for those people who are not a fan of coconut 😊
