My year so far – January

Did you know, we are closer to next Christmas than we are to the last?

With that said, I thought I would give you a little sneak peak at what the first half of 2012 had to offer.

We shall start at the very beginning, I have heard that’s a pretty good place to start…

The boyf and I started our 2012 in the South of France, Sausse to be specific.  We drove the 22 hour journey in one shebang, up to Dover, across to Calais and down to the Alps.  Here are a few pictures of our time there:

 

Ok, that will do for now, I might post a few more at a later date.. stay tuned for what else I got up to in January.. it involves an unexpected audition.. Continue reading

Food good Fridays!

Whilst browsing Pinterest I stumbled across this bad boy

So naturally, I clicked the link.. leading me to this page.. and therefore enabling me to find this amazing specimen of a dip.. brace yourselves, it’s a corker!

Now, it might not look quite as fabulous as the Better than Anything cake above it but have you read what it is?

Cookie. Dough. Dip.

Yes.  You heard.

What could be more incredible?!

Photo a day – 6th July

I am really hoping this one works as I have been having numerous problems with posting pictures.. My posts don’t seem to be appearing with the ‘continue reading’ option and therefore links/pictures aren’t showing up.

Also, I can’t display whole posts as opposed to the clipped versions, I think this has something to do with my template..

Anyway, back to photo a day.

Today photo title is chair.

Yes, you heard correctly.

Chair.

So I thought I would post a picture of the chair I blog from:

Try and contain your excitement. Continue reading

Problem posting pictures?

I seem to be having issues with picture posting at the moment..

My last two posts (5th July photo post and the one about my food blog) both have pictures in them but they don’t seem to be showing.. very annoying..

I shall try and figure out the issues and see what I can do!

(I thought I better mention it.. seen as one of these posts specifically refers to the picture in it, I didn’t want you to all go thinking I was a weirdo..) Continue reading

Photo’s 1 – 4

The photo for the 1st July is Self Portrait.

Now, seen as this is the first time I have disclosed my identity, I feel a drum roll is in order..

So.. Drum roll please!

Ta da!

So there you have it.  That’s me.  Anti climax?  I think so.

The 2nd July photo title is Busy.

As you can see in the photo.. two cups of coffee (lets get the most important item’s out of the way first..) my maths assignment, my maths workbook, a calculator, 2 different pens, a highlighter, my landline phone and my computer all make for a very busy evening!

The photo title for the 3rd July was Best part of your day

Bed – Interpret how you like but the truth is? There is no greater feeling than enveloping yourself between those sheets for a long and well deserved rest..

The 4th July was entitled Fun

This is the Boyf and I acting like goons – we make our own fun!

So there you have it – Photo’s 1 – 4!

Photo for the 5th to follow! Continue reading

A working progress

I figured that I kind of enjoy cooking.

I also figured that I kind of enjoy keeping this blog.

I am also doing a module in Math for my degree.

Therefore I have come to the following conclusion:

Food + Blog = Food Blog!

Food good Fridays – The blog, coming soon to a screen near you!

(I hate being such a cheese ball..) Continue reading

Photo a Day JULY

A friend of mine recently asked if I was taking part in the Photo a Day contest for July.

Until that moment I hadn’t actually heard of it but thought it sounded like fun.

Here are the topics:

Now, when I say ‘contest’ I actually just mean ‘fun thing to do’ as a contest would imply there was a prize, which there’s not.

So based on the fact it is now the 4th July (Happy Independence day to all you people State-side) and the ‘contest’ started on the 1st.. I am 3 days and a post behind so I best get cracking! Continue reading
