It’s been a while!

Hello my loves! It has been aΒ while!

Quite a lot has happened since my last post! I’d like to think this girl has been doing someΒ seriousΒ adulting since we last spoke! So let’s try and rewind… last time we spoke properly I had just left the North and was heading to Bristol! The only thing I knew for absolute certain was where I was going to live (obvs with Will). That was it. I had somewhere to live but not a lot else!

I was feeling pretty crappy because I’d hurt my foot (no idea how but it turns out it was quite badly hurt which resulted in a 5hr round trip from the doctors surgery to A&E several weeks later) We popped over to France to see Will’s family last weekend! We managed to nab a sofa which was excellent! Overall it’s been quite hectic. On a plus note I’ve pimped by crutches so to speak…

Oh and I might have failed to mention that I have got a job in central bristol as a legal recruiter and I couldn’t be any happier?

I mean I’ve been one lucky girl because I had been told by Will and my Mum to not be disheartened until I have at least applied for 30+ jobs. You can imagine their faces when I get an interview for the first job I applied for 30 mins after applying, get a call back and secure a job to start in just under a months time!

Yes, I’m blooming proud of myself!

In other news the house is coming together rather nicely! the floor is down, furniture has been bought and the sofa is arriving on Wednesday! It’s looking so much more homely downstairs and soon we will not be confined to spending our time in the bedroom! I’m really looking forward to watching OITNB on that dreamy sofa come Wednesday night!

I also popped back home to Guernsey for a week a little while back! I had an absolutely lovely time and we had the nicest afternoon tea (it was served on a mini picnic bench!!!)

see! wasn’t it adorable! I basically just spent the whole week eating…

On a much sadder note my beloved Fizzy finally went to Kitty-Cat heaven, it was awfully upsetting as she has been a part of my life for over 17 years! Everyone was devastated. In some ways I still cannot quite believe she has gone!

There’s definitely been some ups and well as downs as of late! However it’s on to a new chapter! I just had to include the amazing Banksy EU piece that we saw on our way to France whilst driving through Dover! I have no idea how he get away with that!!!

So yeah that’s a brief update! I’m rather hungry and need to now hobble down the stairs! Until next time ❀

It’s Fri-yay… lets chat!

Hiya,

it’s been a little while, apologies!

So quite a lot happened in those two weeks. It was rather a fun and action packed fortnight to be quite honest! If you follow me on IG you probably already know!

Anyway, the weekend before last was a girly weekend! My Mum, Auntie and Cousin visited me and we had a weekend of all the food, drinks and laughs! It was a fab weekend!

As you can see we ate all the tapas and thoroughly enjoyed happy hour at Las Iguanas! I actually stayed with them in their hotel and it was like having one long sleep over with my faves! We also ventured to Meadow-Hell and ate more food at various different restaurants! We also went into ALL of the department stores and caused chaos with trying on various different hats! We have all agreed that Mumsie requires one massive hat because those small things simply do not do it! We laughed till we cried and took many a silly photograph! We also ran around Sainsburys on a ready salted crisps mission (tipsy may I add).

I’m so glad that we all managed to find a weekend that we could all do! It’s crazy to think this will be the last girly weekend in the North!

One word heckie.

I’m going to apologise in advance because I am legit going to post another post in like 0.5 seconds about the weekend after with Will.

You cannot say I don’t spoil you all πŸ˜‰

See you in 5

Cake in a mug: Chocolate Brownie!

Look at me go, I’m managed to post more than one post (that makes it a series right?)

16388324_10210977738187072_7903550362427540493_n

Ingredients:Β 

  • 2 tablespoons of soft butter
  • 2 tablespoons of caster sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons of self-raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips

Step by Step

1. Put the butter in a medium sized mug and place in microwave on high for 10/20 seconds to melt the butter.

2. Add the caster sugar, brown sugar and cocoa and combine together

3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract and beat till combined, then add flour, salt and beat again until smooth. Add a dash of chocolate chips and stir in.

4. Cook in microwave on high for 50 seconds, sprinkle more chocolate chips on top and cook for a further 30 seconds.

5. Leave to stand for 15 minutes (I know it’s hard!)

6. Enjoy! I’d recommend making a brew to accompany it!

Opinion

It was especially moist and very tasty, it was fairy light which is surprising for something chocolately! I would most definitely make this again as it satisfied a chocolate craving and didn’t resemble a chocolate Yorkshire pudding!

Tail between my legs

It is with great regret that I retrieve to my bit of the webosphere with my metaphoric tail between my legs. Y’know that I wasΒ supposedΒ to be doing the whole 12 day Blogmas malarky… well my loves I managed one day. Woe is me.

I am not going to dwell on my failure instead I shall tell you about my Christmas and all the antics I have been doing for the last two weeks!

First of all! I hope you all had the mostΒ magicalΒ Christmas with your loved ones and that the day was simply special and wonderful!

I’ve always believed that Christmas is all about love and gratitude and therefore it should be spent with those who mean the most! I’m not going to waffle on, instead I’ll take you through my Christmas with an array of photos!
