Episode 15: Coffee and Nomes

In episode 15, Rosie manages to stretch her birthday celebrations out for an absurdly long time, Jessica reports on an exhibition she went to ages ago and Rosie reports on some excellent food she’s had out and about, plus a Cholera Outbreak. There’s a Strictly Update, Top 5s, a Snack of the Week and some disappointed animals.

This week’s songs:
Jessica picked ‘Stacey’s Mom‘ by Fountains of Wayne, because it is apparently it is 2003.
Rosie chose ‘Another Sunny Day‘ by Belle and Sebastian. That’s quite a lovely animation set to it as well.

Jessica went (Not this week. At all.) to the Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950 exhibition at the V&A which is on until 6 January 2013.

Rosie recommends the Red Velvet Whoopie Pies at the Hummingbird Bakery. Yum yum.

Rosie is having a knitting meltdown. She’d rather we didn’t talk about it.

Rosie’s birthday cake was an ombre and actually worked:
Birthday cake!
