In which I go to dinner 2 (OOTD)

All week for dinner I had been eating toast, crumpets or potato cakes. The fridge is bare… call me old mother Hubbard but when I’m ill the last thing I want to do is trek round the supermarket. I could’ve ordered asda home delivery, but no! 2 asos orders and an elf order instead. (In my defence, some of that is Christmas presents, and some has already gone back!) Anyway, no proper food meant going out for dinner with a few people who work for the same company as me,…

In which I look at old cars (OOTD)

                          So on Sunday I went for a stroll with the boy. There was a vintage/classic car thing happening along the seafront, where people had driven their amazing old cars from London to Brighton (well, the ones that made it that far!) and we felt like having a look! We went for a roast at a lovely pub in  afterwards, and also strolled along the seafront to Hove, where I managed to get a fairly good picture of the sun coming through some clouds. I wore the dress I got…

In which I get a Feel Unique box & an update

For a couple of months I’ve been seeing posts cropping up all over the place about subscription beauty boxes… glossybox/boudoire privee etc and in all honesty felt that I didn’t want to waste £10+ a month on a load of samples of things that I would probably not ever repurchase. Then when looking on the feel-unique website for a present for someone, I saw a link to their beauty box, which has free P&P. Obviously to this cheapskate that was the kicker! Although I think that it helped that I…

In which I post a week in pictures

Red Lips (I never wear lipstick so I look really different to normal) // Drunken antics // my pudding at a buffet Chinese restaurant Krispy Kreme at work // personalised Bentley ‘a cognac’ parked IN A DISABLED SPACE (this really annoys me!!) // the boy wearing a bug mask. Glad the week at work is over, although today hasn’t been a horrifically terrible week, work wise. (Blatantly jinxed it now for next week) and I met up with a friend I don’t see that much after work, before she had…

In which I go out for dinner (OOTD)

On the first Wednesday of each month, a group of us meet up for a curry in a town that is more or less in the middle of where we all now live. One of the girls that comes is my oldest friend, we’ve known each other since we were six! The rest of the group have been together since secondary school, along with a few additions and partners etc. Last night there were 10 of us, and it was lovely! We were planning our Norfolk Broads boating holiday next…

In which I bake (two!)

So I had a tin of boiled condensed milk left, and wanted to make something tasty with it, and this is how I did it. Melt two bars of dark chocolate, about a third of a block of butter and your tin on condensed milk in it;s sticky form over a low heat till it goes all gooey…          Then whilst that’s heating, crumble up a pack of digestive biscuits (I used chocolate ones for extra yum) but not too fine…     Add the crumble into the melted mixture, add…

In which I go on the Brighton Wheel

During my early shift on Sunday (which should have been my day off) I had to go onto the roof of the building I work in to try and work out the origins of whatever it was that was reverberating all through the building (an extractor fan in the end…) and on the roof, seven stories up, I saw the Brighton Wheel (previously pictured here) going on its merry way round! So after work, I went to see if I could go on it with two friends. It was amazing!…

In which I moan about my boss

I went back to work on Monday after a ten day holiday (which was more like 2 days holiday and 8 days of illness) and I normally love my job, the people that I work with (most of them anyway) but a new Manager is causing me some strife. I’ve not met anybody who is so extraordinarily hard to get along with (not to mention demanding!). I answered the phone to him the other day and he said “there’s no need to sound so happy to talk to me”. WHO does that?…

In which I bake!

I Baked some cupcakes to take to work on my first day back, everyone loved them but the day was just horrific! Its a good thing I saved a few at home to scoff when I got in (and I had a glass of wine, which is really rare for me on a work night!) but I felt like I needed it! The recipes for the basic cake is from the hummingbird bakery book, and I made pink lemonade cupcakes (well, lemon curd in the centre with pink buttercream icing…
