A little blog of photographs and memories from Lizzie (and Michael). Michael is a PhD economist (with a penchant for bow ties) and Lizzie is a family support worker and psychological researcher. Having met at school and been together for 6.5 years, we are the proud new owners of our first home! This is a record of our life together.

Sunday night dinner and a birthday with the girls :)
Last Sunday after the weekend of work (25th) Michael and I had two friends over for dinner, which was lovely. They brought champagne and Michael made a delicious dinner of roast chicken followed by coffee and black cherry cake, which was particularly amazing!
Michael is a good baker and has been perfecting his skills over the last year or so...I have to say I think this might have been his best yet! It certainly helped that we had it with lashings of single cream :)
He made a second one to take into the office and that one also got rave reviews!
As one of the guests was an economist (Michael's former teacher nonetheless!) it was inevitable that the white board came out for an explanation... This one was of Nash equilibrium - non stop fun at our dinner parties!!
On Wednesday evening I went out with some girlfriends for a 24th birthday! We had dinner at zero degrees in Bristol; the food was good - Alex and I shared a caramelised pear and goats cheese pizza, and a parma ham and parmesan one. Easily could have shared one between us as they were huge! As an indication of the feeling of the evening here is our bill;
I had a lovely time - Catherine lives away so we don't see her very much, it was great to have a proper catch up :)
